Grave Encounters (2011)

Paranormal investigators from the show Grave Encounters travel to the Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital to film an episode of their show.  After a tour of the abandoned building, they are locked in for the night and set about investigating whether the place is haunted.

For years there have been rumors of paranormal activity in the building.  Is the ghost of patients? Or is it the spirit of a cruel doctor who was murdered by patients that were tired of his experiments?

The group is able to film plenty of odd occurrences, which increase in violence as the night goes on.  As their safety becomes an issue, they decide to pack up and go.  But as they're gathering their equipment, one of them disappears.

The others can't find him and start panicking. While trying to escape, they find hallways are now dead ends and doors won't open.  The building seems to have a life of it's own as doors they know they passed through now lead to other places they haven't been.

The guy who plays Lance is amusing as he seems to be channeling Zak from Ghost Adventures.  My friends liked the movie, but I wasn't enamored with it.  It was okay, but nothing special.
