Quotes

Alex Wright: So you admit it, the footage is real
Jerry Hartfield: Yeah, every last frame of it. Except for a few cheap visual effects that we added at the last minute.
Alex Wright: I guess I just don't understand why you did it.
Jerry Hartfield: Listen, when I first saw those tapes, I was scared to death. You understand? I mean, I even thought about destroying them.

Great Encounters
9 November 2012 | by FilmGeek89See all my reviews

Not going to bore you, so let me be frank.

I really enjoyed it. Watch this film with no expectations in regards to the first and you will to. The problem is people expect way to much from these fairly low budget films. This film does its job, make you feel uneasy and some good scares. It makes me laugh when critics on here are like 'It was so boring, not scary at all, a waste of time' lol I bet you at some point in the movie they were like "s*&t!" lol.

Just stop trying so hard to hate and enjoy. I rate this a high 6/10, gave the first one 7/10.
