Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The filmmakers seem unaware that they're beating a dead horse. As the uniformly annoying characters stumble around, screaming and cursing, we don't give a hoot for their survival."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Despite its meagre budget, Grave Encounters boasts surprisingly solid acting, vertigo-baiting hand-held camera antics and enough [REC]- style shock-horror to keep your pulse throbbing throughout."
‑ Ken McIntyre, Total Film
"Grave Encounters can't even pretend to be anything other than hopelessly derivative."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"True terror needs at least some authenticity. That's perhaps too much to ask of a faked movie about a faked reality show that still can't scare up a fresh idea."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
"Offers some decent scares once you get past the somewhat labored set-up."
‑ Ethan Alter, Television Without Pity
"A ghost of a different color turns the gurneys on a hip TV production."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"The pic's creepiness factor is sufficient to rate this a notch above genre average."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
""Found footage horror" is here to stay, so let's concentrate on simply separating the good ones from the bad."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
