The film had a number of great images and a very interesting idea which kicks in about halfway through which gave the film an edge over its many bedfellows. So, while a sequel isn’t a huge surprise what was see here in the first trailer seems to suggest they are going over old ground with a twist, albeit one we’ve seen before.
The premise is that a group of fans of the first film set out to shoot a documentary in the film’s location, and of course bad things happen. As I said this is not a new trick The oft-forgotten Book of Shadows, AKA Blair Witch 2, used exactly the same premise, although it didn’t reuse the found footage gimmick and wasn’t a huge success. Here’s hoping Grave Encounters 2 is as much fun as its forbear, and tries to do something as interesting with the coventions of the genre.
The trailer, brought to you from Shock Till You Drop, does contain a few spoilery moments.
