Vivi Finally Watches MH

Post by Vivi on Sat Dec 11, 2010 9:35 pm

This is the re-post/archive/compilation AND continuation of my widely well received "VFW MH" thread that began November 11th 2010 and had 987 Views as of December 11th 2010. All red text from here on out are either Titles/URLs or new notes made with this update. Thank you!
~~~


As many of you probably know, I'm a pretty die-hard Slenderman fan... Who got on that boat just as Marble Hornets was ending. I've been telling myself that I'd get around to it for months upon months. Somehow I just kept putting it off. But ladies and gentlemen, the time has finally come for

VIVI FINALLY WATCHING MARBLE HORNETS


In this thread, I will post my feelings, reactions and thoughts to each entry as I watch them for the first time. How they match up to my own expectations and conception of the Slenderman mythos as I know it. (I plan to watch one or maybe two videos a day in order to keep my own interest and anticipation up.)

Questions, discussions and requests for things I should talk about are welcome. It's not every day that someone already so engrossed in a fandom actually experiences it for the first time, so I thought I'd share the experience with you guys.

"Introduction"


Here I am in my room, lights turned off, the dull roar of traffic mingling with the bleats of crickets outside my window, pale blue lamplight casting shadows around me. Enough ambiance? Good, cause here I go, pressing play.
(These posts might be best enjoyed while re-watching these along with me.)

My Notepad
First I have to note that i like how the background noise at the beginning is actually kind of pleasant to hear, which is rare.
Nice camera quality, this really does seem like it deserves its reputation so far.
"Burn them" OSHIT
Okay, so Alex is in another school, and out of the picture at the moment for this part.
Why would you want the tapes if they unnerved you, dude?!
Oh, so all these entries are possibly going to be out of order, somewhat disappointed.
Who is "I"?

Overall: Looking quite good and want to continue, since there is so little to go on so far. I am most definitely intrigued.

It's good to see you put this up here. I'd hate to see all your hard work with this little project go to waste.

"Entry #1"


I felt like I needed more, so this is the last one for tonight.

My Notepad
Random shot of scrambling about... and then something i couldnt make out.. seems a tad out of place.
Well hell.
Seriously awesome choreographed sighting.
Maybe I'd be a little more creeped if I hadn't inadvertently seen this section of the clip before.
I'm almost surprised they went out and brought out the big guns so soon. its a ballsy move, but I like it.
Maybe I'm a little hung up on this, but since I frequently purposefully averted my eyes from posts about MH, I really wouldve wanted an introduction of who our narrator is here. I don't even know this guy's name.


Overall:
Still impressed, but kinda wish these clips were longer. (Pretty sure they get longer along the way though) Also, my beef with the narrator.

That's enough for tonight, awaiting input/discussion.

But of course, I only did all of it for you guys, no sense in letting it dissapear!
Thanks for the support.

"Entry #2"

Day Number 2 into my MH viewing endeavor. The sun is down, the lights turned low, let's get this parted started!

My Notepad
Ominous road, just the glint of shine from the signs on the side of the road are making me a tad wary.
Alex has a pleasant enough voice.
A dog freaking out over slendy... the idea of that creeps me out due to some recurring dreams I have.
Ahh no, don't pull over!
"So I guess he's moved on" *huge sigh of relief*
Half expecting to get psyched out and see some freakyness.
Ah no, no freaky here.
Yep Mr Narrator, seems he had/has a bad case of the slendermans.


Overall: I might just be stringing myself up all by myself, but I like the underlying tension, acting isn't bad at all, the pacing is going quite well. No complaints from me.

Onward!

"Entry #3"

To quote Daft Punk, "One more time!"
My Notepad
Oho- can someone say paranoid slendy surveillance~?
>crotch shot
I cant help but smile at this being the first time we SEE Alex. How promising.
Pretty ordinary... seems a little tense maybe.
THEM TREES. (ooh sunset)
Some film/batteries for camera, I assume. He's probably using up a lot.
I am now expecting something horrible to happen beyond that window.
Disappoint.
MORE TREES.
THAT WINDOW.
But nothing comes of it, think they're just leaves.
Cementing the idea of feeling watched/followed/stalked, very nice.


Overall: Some underlying theme development, nothing too tremendous for me to comment on, but I can surely see where this is going, good stuff.

"Entry #4"

The sun has set kind of early today, I was outside watching it; for some reason seeing the sun dissapear is always such an inherently creepy feeling to me, way more creepy than pitch black.

But now it IS quite black outside... You know what time it is~

My Notepad

Why is there never any audio?!
Its always even creepier to me that way *insert expression of despair*
A playground, of courrrrse.
ooo, did we interrupt somebody on the swings?
SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT
NO, DONT STOP, KEEP RUNNING
The way he was walking, does that mean the whole time slendy was circling around Alex? gahhhh!
But why would ALEX remove the sound, narrator? what the two clips have in common is the tall man.


Overall:
Great great great stuff, I felt what seemed like my heart bouncing like a rubber ball inside my chest cavity once or twice. They really know what they're doing and how to film things JUST right. Its no surprise to me that I recall the makers of MH are ACTUAL film students.

"Entry #5"

Last one was kinda short, so why not do another while I'm still riding on the waves of fear.

My Notepad
Mein gott, them woods.
[Pause] I have half a feeling that any SM ARG PM (wow that was a lot of acronyms) should know better than to place a conversation taking place in front of the backdrop of the woods since its so distracting and you cant help but scan the woods more than you pay attention to the dialogue, but it also gives me a feeling that was the point, so I guess it's excusable. Builds tension anyway.
THE BIRTH OF SLENDY DISTORTION
Although, I'm not seeing any hint of him, maybe I'm missing it. *is really bad at this*
Okay, a clearing, much less brush, this is a little more reassuring.
>"Fire departme-"
Throwbacks to SA thread, IC WUT U DID THAR
That fumbling clip that always ends up in a yellow-lit room is similar to that other one. Reminds me of bathroom lighting.
OH, it WAS the same clip, and this is a recap.
Yep, rips and tears.



Overall: A definitely solid ARG-building-up-video, my impressions and feelings remain very much the same.

"Entry #6"

Today's been kinda stressful, so purely in order for me to keep up my pace, only 1 viewing today. It's a short one, but I imagine you peeps won't mind.

My Notepad

WOAH man, Slendy's just doing circles around the guy's house if this is a continuation. I'm utterly shocked that Alex survived that scene in order to give these tapes to our narrator.


Overall: I'm just so impressed at how many actual focused slendy-sightings there have been so far in this ARG, densely packed into nearly each entry, and how they still manage to be frightening and not cheesey in the slightest.

"Entry #7"

There may POSSIBLY be a post late late tonight, but don't expect it; I seem to have suddenly become busy o_o

My Notepad
Awkward amateur movie filming with lame scripts, awww, this reminds me of middle school :]
So cheesey, and yet believable for the same reason.
hakdlshjlaslaksjdklsd
[pause] SHIT SHIT THIS IS BRILLIANT
YES, RUN ALEX, DRIVE AWAY
That little snippet after theyre "not in character" I like, it was very believable
Someone?! are you not seeing that dude in the suit with a tentacle for an arm?!


Overall: The choreography is amazing, the placement of SM was just far enough away to be credible, and yet when Brian guy stretched back, your eyes shoot directly where they're supposed to be. Skillful, downright skillful.

"Entry #8"

You know what time it is- Let's go!

My Notepad
Slendy scribble mural~ bahaha, the madness begins. or began.
So THAT's that yellowy thing I've seen before. Its a lamp.
So i guess he just cowers in the darkness for a while after that.


Overall: A nice little piece of character/paranoia building. Short and sweet, but everything you need to get the point.

"Entry #9"

Once more.

My Notepad

You're damn right you havent. I don't think I've seen anyone scribble in such a creepy manner in my life, scribbling is supposed to be a happy activity.
Please tell me this part of the student film MH, and not the arg MH.
Ah thank god, even "Alex" the character can spot bad acting.
Annoying children >_<
Oooh, somebody's feeling a tad testy.
OH WAIT, CHILDREN (cue "I see what you did there" and paranoid forest scanning)
Holy crackers, this is good, really good, i legitimately feel like Alex is being a total dick now.
I semi wish there had been snippets of Alex being an everyday nice guy before so I could see the contrast, but I can totally jive with the idea of Slendy making him so upset.


Overall:
It was surprisingly immersive, I'm definitely a fan so far.

"Regards"

A bonus ToTheArk viewing.

My Notepad
SLASH RECTANGLES.
I moved my face closer to the screen and half expected a screamer.
Oddly I feel let down that I didnt get one.


Overall:
Kind of an "Uhh, okay" reaction, if i didnt know better... I would've pretty much rolled my eyes and went along on my merry way.
