Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Averted in the case of Alex, who viciously beats Jennifer, his own girlfriend, to death so he can leave the hospital and save his own sorry ass. Made even worse by the fact that he lets the footage be made into a film and claims it all to be staged, as a way of luring even more people to the hospital so he can stay free.]]


Added DiffLines:

* VillainProtagonist: [[spoiler:Alex becomes this by the end, murdering his own girlfriend and agreeing to lure more people to the hospital just so he can be free.]]


** Immediately after the above, the elevator reaches the lobby of the hotel but when the doors open, the lobby isn't there. It's the underground tunnels of the hospital. They never escaped the hospital...

Added DiffLines:

* WhamShot: After losing two of their friends, Alex, Jennifer and Trevor actually managed to escape the hospital, drive to their hotel room and pack up to leave. But when they enter the elevator, the cleaning lady in the hallway ominously stares at them as the doors close.

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler: Alex survives and is set free, but his friends and Lance have all been killed (his girlfriend by his own hand), and he finishes his film and puts out a huge piece of ShmuckBait to get other people to go to the hospital to ensure that there will be more victims. Why? Because he'd be yanked straight back into the DarkWorld if he didn't do it.]]

* AttackOfTheMonsterAppendage: Like the previous film, there's a sequence where a monster grapples Trevor when they open a window. This time, however, the example is Type 2 as the beast climbs in through the window and chases them.

Judging by the color of it's skin, this could be the same creature that grabbed Sasha in the first movie.


* ConspicuousCG: The first film avoids this - what little CG is used looks pretty convincing. ''Grave Encounters 2,'' though, does have a few instances of this trope during the second half, namely [[spoiler:the first floating camera making an almost cartoonish bulge as it falls back into the bag (the floating cameras in general might be this trope, as well), and the portal breaking though the wall at the very end.]]
* [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Corrupt Executive Producer]]: The Producer that released the original film admits to Alex that he originally was scared to death of the footage from the original, but decided to release the film and pay off the families of Lance and his crew because he needed money and was nearly bankrupt. He had a bunch of interns claim to be the actors, and only told Alex this because he knows Alex has no proof. [[spoiler: He also willingly releases the second film, this time stating it is fake and pretending none of it happened in reality.]]

* StageNames: Lance Preston apparently isn't his real name; it was a stage name he told everyone was his real name and his real name is Sean Rogerson (the actor who plays him). So we have a fun in-universe example of a stage name where an actor is playing himself who is playing a different character.

* YearInsideHourOutside: Possibly the case for [[spoiler: Lance]], who insists it's been nine ''years'' he's been trapped in the hospital.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler: Lance]] has been in the hospital for almost nine years and has never found a way out, and if the lack of the first crew and the second movie are any indication between each other; once you go in, the hospital will only let you leave if it wants you to, and it likely will not.
