I decided to get back to reviewing movies because I missed writing them and because I really enjoyed Grave Encounters a lot. Grave Encounters is shot in point of view style and pulls it off very well. For me it is comparable to both The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity and outshines both of them in every way possible. I was not scared in either of those two films but was terrified throughout Grave Encounters. This film had me literally on the edge of my seat the whole time and was a terrifying film. It was also very unique in terms of horror films in a few senses. One of the ways it was unique at least to some degree was that it scared you not when you expected it too do so but when you least excepted it. The scares for me were genuine terror and the film reminds me of the youtube videos were something normal is happening and then it just becomes terrifying. For example the famous videos were someone has a normal face and nothing is happening that is odd then all of a sudden the face becomes distorted and terrifying Grave Encounters is 95 minuets of this happening. It very well may be the scariest film I have seen in my life. Enough gushing about the film though let me tell you what Grave Encounters is about. The film is presented as a television show similar to all the paranormal investigation shows this one is called Grave Encounters. It opens with the producer of the show explaining how what we are about to view has not been doctored in any way and has only been edited for time. It tells the story of a group of investigators going to explore an abandoned insane asylum to try and fine proof of the paranormal. They lock themselves inside and get ready for what they thought would be a easy time. Without spoiling too much things go awry very fast and things start to get very good very fast not for the investigators though as things get worse and worse for them. I can really go on about this film for ever but it seems to combine the remake of House on Haunted Hill, Silent Hill, The Blair Witch Project, and Chernobyl Diaries. It combines elements from all these films and it works very well and the final product is a great film. Normally I would give this film my highest review a 10 out of 10 but I am trying to be way more objective about these ratings and the film had its share of problems that may effect some others from enjoying it as much as I did. I cannot go in depth as to what these are however as that may spoil the film. With that said I will be giving the film a 9 out of 10 however all the films I have rated a 10 should be dropped down from a 10 to a 9 as none of the movies I have reviewed are perfect. This may be the most complete film of all the movies I have reviewed.
