''Grave Encounters'' is a 2011 indie [[FoundFootageFilms found footage]] horror film directed by the Vicious Brothers. It documents the fate of the crew of a ''Series/GhostHunters''-esque (or more specifically, "Series/Ghost Adventures") reality show which surveys haunted locations in the hopes of capturing ghostly activity on film. A prologue mentions that this particular episode, centering around an abandoned mental hospital in the Danvers County area, was to be the sixth, and the raw footage shows how the crew initially play up the spooky factor to increase the atmosphere. [[FromBadToWorse However, they soon find themselves in the middle of a nightmare as the sun goes down...]]

* DevelopingDoomedCharacters
** It works better than other movies, though, as the characters all behave realistically, and it helps the audience empathize more strongly with their situation - a key element in a movie built on NothingIsScarier.
