Alex Wright: So you admit it, the footage is real
Jerry Hartfield: Yeah, every last frame of it. Except for a few cheap visual effects that we added at the last minute.
Alex Wright: I guess I just don't understand why you did it.
Jerry Hartfield: Listen, when I first saw those tapes, I was scared to death. You understand? I mean, I even thought about destroying them.

First Movie Was Nice Surprise, This Is Not
9 June 2013 | by shaososaSee all my reviews

The first Grave Encounters was a decent enough found footage horror flick that had just enough humor and jump scenes to make it a somewhat likable watch. This sequel follows a young filmmaker who is convinced the events depicted in the first Grave Encounters are real. He sets out with his crew in tow to make a documentary detailing his findings.

The problem with Grave Encounters 2 is it has lost any cool or fun factor from the original. This is a pretty much a bland rehashing with new, boring characters in the same, now boring setting of a closed down hospital.

The first Grave Encounters was a reminder that you can sometimes find something to like in a low budget, no name of a movie streaming on Netflix. Grave Encounters 2 is a reminder that most the low budget, no name movies streaming on Netflix suck.
