Lance Preston and the crew of "Grave Encounters", a ghost-hunting reality television show, are shooting an episode inside the abandoned Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital, where unexplained phenomena have been reported for years. All in the name of good television, they voluntarily lock themselves inside the building for the night and begin a paranormal investigation, capturing everything on camera. They quickly realize that the building is more than just haunted - it is alive - and it has no intention of ever letting them leave. They find themselves lost in a labyrinth maze of endless hallways and corridors, terrorized by the ghosts of the former patients. They soon begin to question their own sanity, slipping deeper and deeper into the depths of madness, ultimately discovering the truth behind the hospital's dark past...and taping what turns out to be their final episode.

"You're in for one hell of a ride."
"This veritable spook house of horrors will have you jumping out of your seats for sure. Strap in, kids! You’re in for one hell of a ride. Totally recommended.”
"...Very, Very Scary!"
"I wish I could have seen Grave Encounters in a theater full of screaming teenagers throwing their popcorn in the air. It’s the perfect movie for that: fun, surprising and often very, very scary."
"Had us jumping out of our seats..."
"Grave Encounters is very enjoyable and had us jumping out of our seats through much of it. It's surprising this hasn’t gotten a cinema release because word of mouth would probably make it a hit."
