Well, a clip has been
released leaked from Grave Encounters 2; our friends at Dread Central have the article and the clip that arrived mysteriously in their email inbox from someone with the username DeathAwaits. Hmmm, that sounds familiar, the kind of username that would be in a press kit… let’s see here.
That’s strange. He looks as though he may have a bloodshot eye… or is that actual blood in the inner corner?
I wish I had some reviews to link to, but none of the IMDB links work at the time of this writing; they all take me to an error page of some kind. I hope that’s some kind of creative marketing gimmick and not because they ordered all the less-than-positive advance reviews pulled. I think they’ll be positive, though (I trust Uncle Creepy here). Actually, I don’t even know if they could do that (have reviews pulled, that is), so I guess I might actually have to go into a movie clean for once! I don’t have the kind of willpower to avoid reviews of a movie I’ve been excited about for months, even if it’s going to be available to watch in 48 hours.
However, Back To The Movies has posted an exclusive interview (audio) with the director of Grave Encounters 2, John Poloquin:
Oooo, prosthetics! I’m sure certain shots couldn’t be done without CGI, but I’m really happy they are using practical effects whenever possible. That’s all the new info I’ve got for you for Grave Encounters 2 as of this writing. However, in anticipation of the On Demand premiere being around the corner, I do have a little ‘photo gallery’ from the original Grave Encounters (2011)! I snapped them the last time I rented it and watched on our flat screen*, and turned the closed captions on (otherwise they wouldn’t be very interesting). I do NOT own the copyrights to any of these images, I’m posting them here for entertainment purposes only (I’ve got a full disclaimer about copyright issues on this page to cover my ass). If you haven’t seen Grave Encounters yet, and plan to, you might want to skip the gallery, because several are spoilers as to the fate of certain characters …and BIG jump moments …especially towards the end.
I seemed to get a lot of those. I could put up ten photos from different scenes in the movie, and the captions would all be: [screams] Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!! We see plenty of scream-worthy things in Grave Encounters, but I ended up capturing an equal number of verbal reactions, some of which didn’t have any distinct image to go with them like the shot above. Example:
And here’s about as minimalist as those shots get for you:
Well, the below “Aaaaaaahhhhh!!!!!!!!” is in color. Shout out to the top commenter on my Grave Encounters -themed pieces,”Lobotomy Jack” — I bet you can tell which scene this is from! (10/1 update: he could)
Well, at least that one’s in color. I seriously could put up a dozen of them (plus, the CCs use the caption “Raaaaaar!” for several scary creatures shrieking/roaring). There’s also a bunch that are captioned with very realistic reactions (I know I’d be yelling the same things at the top of my lungs in their situation at some points):
And I’d be saying/yelling THIS more or less non-stop if I was trapped in that fucking hell-hole:
OK, I’ll get to the gallery/slideshow (however you want to view it) now. I basically picked the shots that were most memorable, as well as lines that strongly evoke the spirit (so to speak) of the movie– the reason why it haunts many of us devoted Grave Encounters fans. Here we go…
Is it Tuesday yet?
*As I often do with really cool horror movies, especially if I’m going to write about them. If I’m too tired, taking notes isn’t always fast enough for my horrible short-term memory and ADD, so I get out the camera. The bonus is, though, cool pics for postings and galleries!
