For their ghost hunting reality show, a production crew locks themselves inside an abandoned mental hospital that's supposedly haunted - and it might prove to be all too true.
The director set out to differentiate Grave Encounters from other iconic found-footage films such as Blair Witch Project by being less subtle with the demons. He wanted the demons to "visibly run at you", rather than just move objects and slam doors.
What the fuck was that? Guys, cut the shit! I'm not fucking playing!
As the history of the asylum is revealed, it is stated that a former doctor performed grisly experiments on the asylum patients in the 1930s. In a flashback sequence referring to this time, a patient is shown in front of a television, watching static. However, the television was not introduced to the public until the 1939 World's Fair, and was not common in US households until the early 1950s. An asylum in the 1930s could not, and would not, have had a television.
At the end of the credits, a message reads: "No Rats Were Eaten During The Making of this Film".
