PostSubject: What worries you the most about the Marble Hornets movie?   Sun Jan 19, 2014 7:28 am

Since the Marble Hornets (working title: The Operator) movie is coming out this year. I kinda worried of it. I'm afraid of it just begin bad and a bomb/flop at the box office and then people would probably only remember Marble Hornets and the slender man from shitty movie that flopped. Other thing that worries me is that people will bash it as a paranormal activity rip-off  which I'm sure will happen. Does anybody shares the same worries about the movie?

I am concerned about the Paranormal Activity "ripoff" part of the film but I believe Trosephim did assist in the motion picture right?

I guess I am just worried that they won't put the effort that smaller workers have put into their vlogs would because of it being a larger product. If you understand what I mean

The guys making the movie are fans of the series proper, even Doug Jones (who's playing the Operator) is a fan -- it's likely going to be very good, especially considering the reaction the clip they showed at Comic Con got.

...Ok now I'm confused. What is it with fandoms automatically assuming movies based on their fandoms' fixation are going to suck? Just because it's a professionally-made piece doesn't mean it's going to be bad.

Given enough examples of said case, that means the odds are against it.
That being said, it could be bloody fantastic.

I'm trying to not worry about anything and maybe I'm even avoiding thinking of the whole movie thing. Because yea, not many horror movies are really good... I love the genre and I watch a lot of horror movies, but there's a lot of not-good-movies. :/

But I hope that I'm going to see it when it comes out. (Aka I don't think that it's going to be in theaters here because here it's kinda rare that a horror movie gets played in cinemas. Bohoooo.)

I'm worried by the lack of action, or explanation. It would suck to be a movie that only MarbleHornet fans would understand. I'm also terrified of it being sucky, or dragging on for way too long.

A lot of people aren't into that sort of thing.

My worry is that it won't get enough advertisement and that it'll be too small for a movie, even if it's an independently made movie. Though I don't think very much that it'll be a bad movie, probably average at least. But now that I'm hearing it might be in a similar style to Paranormal Activity, I don't want it to be seen as a PA rip off either. My main concern is that, in hindsight I don't want to think of it as being a movie that sucks.

The only problem with the "PA rip off" thing is that Marble Hornets (the web series) is definitely filmed in the same style. The uninitiated would call THAT a rip off -- but that's not stopping the folks making the movie since the idea is for there to be a connection between the web series and the movie.

That said, we'll have to wait and see how well the movie does.

I have high hopes for it. I think with the right people behind it and the right ideas it could be a great film. And a good addition to the Slenderverse.

It could also be shit, but hey, we're used to that Smile

I'm not worried about anyone calling the Marble Hornets web series a PA rip-off, no one has done it yet, and when the movie comes out if people see the movie and then the web series I think they'll see a noticeable difference in the filming styles if the film isn't shot in the same way. I'm only worried the film will be called a rip-off if it's advertised as being found footage I suppose. My fear is of ignorant people lol.

Media reporters and such doing reviews or news about the movie would likely call it as based on the webseries anyways and of the creature known as Slenderman and media helps how anything is perceived by ignorant masses, although there's no ghosts and people being thrown around by invisible things in the Slenderverse so people would barely be able to compare when seeing both movies.

I'm equally not worried myself, in fact I don't care WHAT people will think of the movie, I know for a fact that I'm likely gonna enjoy it myself. Plus, as stated before, the very people MAKING this are fans of the web series and they respect it enough that they didn't order Troy, Joseph and Tim to stop working on it, while also throwing homages into the movie script.

This IS an independent film company making this movie, so the whole thing about Hollywood's reputation isn't exactly a factor in the equasion. However, is it POSSIBLE that this film will be seen as trash by many? Quite possibly. The people I work with have no idea what the Operator is or what Marble Hornets is, hell they don't even know about the Slender Man (probably because my running gag is that I call myself by that name because, well, I'm very slender lol).

I think, therefore, that ignorance on the part of the majority is to be expected. Only the most savvy of individuals would know anything remotely related to MH or the Slender Man, and I think it's clear that the movie's being targeted at the fans more than a broad audience. This leaves me hopeful that the film will be good, will do itself justice, and will hopefully introduce whomever didn't know about the mythos before, to the mythos.

I'm trusting these guys but I'm not unprepared for a flop, basically. Optimism goes a long way.

....So said the serial pessimist. >.>

You are probably the only person I saw on the internet that is not worried about MH movie.

Of course I'm worried that it could flop and give Slender Man more of a bad reputation, and also that Slender Man in general could become a much less distinct and effective monster than he was as the internet's nightmarish brainchild. But I'm hopeful as far as Marble Hornets is concerned, because it could earn some new attention from people that heard about it from the movie- and since the movie will have a different story and therefore different title, Marble Hornets will not be confused for it and will be judged on its own merits.

I'm not worried at all. I think it's gonna be good. First off, Troy, Joseph, and Tim are collaborating with the project which will make it very good, everyone in the project is a fan of the original series. The only thing I AM worried about is the fact that it probably won't play in my local cinemas (they only play 2 movies per week, and that's when there's a lot of them out). I really hope the movie will be good and I'm looking forward to watching it.
