And today is yet another day for my not-so-regular horror movie fix. There’s a lot out there, depending on your definition of horror. This one, called “Grave Encounters”, catches my eye for one main reason:
The abandoned mental hospital/asylum setting
I don’t know about you but there’s just something really creepy about empty mental hospitals. Is it the traces of paranoia, of fear, of madness that managed to linger there long after the people who once stayed there are gone? Is it those countless stories you’ve heard about the weird things that keep happening to those uninhabited asylums? Whatever your reason may be, one fact remains: Mental hospitals/asylums are scary places. I wouldn’t have the guts to go in there alone, even if I was paid a million bucks to do it.
Except maybe 1.5 million bucks. I’d have second thoughts about actually stepping inside.
But kidding aside, I think “Grave Encounters” is one of the movies I’d love to see (with friends. Ahem!) The format of this movie is the documentary type. A group of people take the challenge and sets up their tools in order to provide the public the proof that yes, there is something weird going on in there. And that’s when crazy things start to happen. You can watch the trailer here. And if you want a detailed review of this upcoming movie, you go click here. Enjoy!
