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.

Did You Know?


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.


Lance Preston: Listen, if there's anybody up here trying to fuck with us, it's not funny! Alright, we'll call the police! We have a right to be here! We have a permit, and you don't!
T.C Gibson: Can you lower your fucking voice.


When, in the beginning of the movie they go with Kenny Sandavol into a room that has writing all over the walls. The writing is as crisp and clear as if it was done yesterday. It is stated that this hospital closed down in 1963. There is no way, even in the most pristine conditions, that the writing and the paint could look like that after 51 years! Especially in a room that has had no heat, A/C or any type of protection against cold and humidity. It would have only taken a year or two before the paint would have started badly peeling off the walls under those conditions. Yet, we are supposed to believe that the paint and the writing has been preserved so well fifty one years later.

Crazy Credits

The standard paragraph at the end of most credits stating that the movie is fictitious is altered to say: The Events, Characters, and images depicted in this photoplay are fictitious. Any similarity to actual persons, living or (un)dead, or to actual events is purely coincidental.
