Today the sequel to a much-overlooked shocker hit VOD. I am talking about GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2 and I am really looking forward to renting it this week and seeing what those crazy Vicious Brothers have come up with this time around.
The dudes over at Dread Central were paying attention and noticed a tweet from Tribeca Films that hint at some horror coolness to anyone following so simple instructions and jumping through a couple hoops. Don’t worry, not gonna put you through all that but what it all leads up to is posted below, a hot little clip that is just plain creepy.
I loved GRAVE ENCOUNTERS and don’t understand why more fans didn’t embrace it. It’s available for streaming on Netflix so if you have not yet checked out it, remedy that soon will ya.
Story wise those Brothers Vicious have come up with an interesting notion:
In 2011 GRAVE ENCOUNTERS was a found-footage horror phenomenon from the Vicious Brothers, with a trailer garnering over 20 million views on YouTube. Many people believed it was just a movie. They were wrong, and film student Alex Wright is out to prove it in GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2.
While researching the events depicted in the original film and the subsequent disappearance of its lead ”actor” Sean Rogerson, Alex Wright received a bizarre video from a mysterious blogger named “DeathAwaits666.” Appearing to show Rogerson still alive but trapped inside the Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital from GRAVE ENCOUNTERS, Alex and his friends agree to meet the blogger at the infamous hospital in hopes of learning what really happened. To their horror they quickly find themselves face-to-face with unspeakable evil. Realizing that they must be smarter and faster than Rogerson and his crew to avoid suffering the same fate, they use their knowledge of the original film to do whatever it takes to survive.
