In 2011, the trailer for Grave Encounters, a found-footage horror phenomenon from The Vicious Brothers, garnered over 20 million views on YouTube. Many people believed it was just a movie. They were wrong. So wrong. Film student Alex Wright is out to prove it in Grave Encounters 2.

While researching the events depicted in the original film and the 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 infamous Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital from Grave Encounters, Alex and his friends agree to meet the blogger at the infamous hospital in hopes of discovering the truth.

Grave Encounters 2 will be available nationwide on demand October 2nd and will be followed by a limited theatrical release. Just in time for Halloween…
