Not familiar with the Marble Hornets web series, I took a chance on "Always Watching," not particularly expecting much. It's my personal opinion that probably 80 of horror flicks are just plain bad, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one, as the story is good, the acting commendable and directing very adept.
My main beef was that, like so many horror movies, the characters have this "we can't go to the cops, they'll never believe us" mentality. This is sorta explained away when one of the earlier victims went to law enforcement and was pretty much laughed out of the police station with his story. However, later in the movie, the three main characters have plenty of video evidence and still didn't seek help from the authorities. I think that if they had, the story still could've proceeded just fine, and the entire premise would've been more believable.
I'm more than willing to find more movies by this director
