| I always feel like… somebody's You Tubing me!
Apparently "Marble Hornets" the long-feature film is based on a series that can only be seen on You Tube. Personally I didn't know this series existed… No wait, let me rephrase that, personally I didn't even know there existed series that can only be seen on You Tube! Anyways, the series revolves on a fictional character referred to as Slender Man – although for legal reasons here re-baptized into 'The Operator' – who is a type of boogeyman-for-the-cyber-generation and appears in sinister internet videos rather than underneath your bed. The bad news, however, is that "Marble Hornets" is also one of those dreadful Found-Footage horror movies, which means that the hand-held camera-work is horrendous (and, no, it's not adding any atmosphere or suspense), the characters are underdeveloped and over- the-top hysterical most of the time and that the film ends suddenly and abrupt without any type of proper explanation. Sara and Milo are a not-so professional duo of news reporters, sharing a brief but uncomfortably awkward love history, are following around a team of evictors for a human-interest documentary. They enter a rather nice and well-decorated middle-class family house where the residents cleared rushed out of unforeseen and in a hurry. They stumble upon a pile of family videos and discover that the father became gradually paranoid – and righteously so – because he always spotted a sinister figure observing his family from a distance. This perpetrator can only be seen through the lens of a camera and pretty soon he's also stalking Sara, Milo and their obnoxious supervisor Charlie. If you disregard the connection with the Internet series, "Marble Hornets: The Operator" is an incredibly mundane and forgettable movie. The only remotely interesting added value in the script is the unhealthy relationship between the lead protagonists. For example, Sara and Charlie learn about the existence of The Operator when they stumble upon Milo's private videos in which he's stalking Sara. Both the appearance and the background story of The Operator aren't very interesting or scary, and he honestly doesn't do a whole lot apart from discretely standing in the background. If there ever was a movie that is suitable for Found-Footage fanatics only, it must be this one.
