Taking cues from films like Paranormal Activity and The Blair Witch Project comes a new cinema verite ghost flick, Grave Encounters, which comes from directors simply known as “The Vicious Brothers”. Starring Sean Rogerson, Merwin Mondesir, Ashleigh Gryzko, Mackenzie Gray and Juan Riedinge, Darclight is selling the film at this week’s American Film Market where Bloody Disgusting scored the first poster and a nice handful of images.
