Review (spoiler-free)

Grave Encounters 2 (2012) is a horror movie. It's a video mashup about a film crew investigating the events of the first film.

Unlike the first film, the beginning is solid, it's one of the best parts of the movie. (It was the second best part of the movie for me.) The tempo and quality however is very uneven, you can clearly point out better and worse parts.

As the whole thing just happened without any real story behind it, and that would have been important for me, I couldn't really enjoy this, but I can imagine others might do.

My experience

For me the best part of the film was the music during the end credits, it was entertaining. There were also some seconds that featured girls that were nice to look at.

Will you enjoy this?

If you like found footage films with no story, you could.

If you enjoyed Grave Encounters (2011), you might be interested in this story.

If you get through the first 10 minutes still interested, you might enjoy this film.

Watching for plot points

If you are only watching this film because you are curious whether it has some interesting scary background story - it doesn't. I can't even really tell if it has a story at all.

Do you need to see the first film to enjoy this?

There's enough explanation that you'll understand what's going on without seeing the first film.

However as I think this film is somewhat inferior to the previous one, I feel that watching the Grave Encounters (2011) before this would improve your experience of Grave Encounters 2 (2012).

Review with spoilers

I don't think there is anything worth mentioning about this film that would spoil anything.

I felt that the most creative part was the first few minutes with the video reviewers. Those got their own review style, footage resolution, aspect ratio. It really felt there was some work put into this segment.

Possibilities of improvement

Improving this would require better men than I am.

How it could have been better?

I'm pretty sure the camera work was intentionally bad. Considering the previous works of the camera crew I'm also pretty sure that they would have achieved a semi-amateur looking effect without any additional work. And that would have been all that would have made it an average film.
