Grave Encounters

Grave Encounters

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 has 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.

ABOUT THE FILMMAKERS: The Vicious Brothers is the writing/directing collaboration between 25 year old filmmakers Colin Minihan and Stuart Ortiz. They first met through a filmmaking web forum in 1999, and bonded through their shared love of horror/sci-fi films and a mutual hatred of film school. Together, they have written four feature film scripts and collaborated on dozens of media projects. Their debut feature film, “Grave Encounters,” has recently acquired domestic distribution through Tribeca Film and will have its world premiere at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. The trailer for the film, which they produced themselves, quickly went viral on the internet and gathered 1.5 million youtube hits in only 3 months.
