    ★★★

    A visual and audio marvel, which unfortunately is overshadowed by the convoluted plot and uninteresting characters.

    ★★★

  • Grave Encounters

    Grave Encounters

    ★★★

    A very solid found footage horror movie. I really liked the whole atmosphere with the haunted abandoned insane asylum and how slowly everything escalates into madness. The found footage genre completely fits for the concept very well. The performances from actors are actually pretty decent.

    Unfortunately, I didn't really like the ending, as it got pretty cheesy. There were some moments, that were unintentionally funny, instead of scary. The special effects in the film don't really hold up either and…
