The series is great on Youtube, but if you have the bandwidth and time, I recommend downloading each video, splicing them together, burning it to DVD, turning every single light off inside, then watch it on a big TV.
My friends are from all over my state, but being Mardi Gras, they came back home and I threw a party. Since most don't have the attention span to sit and click through the Youtube videos, I pulled the videos off Youtube with KeepVid
, all in FLV format since the resolution was a bit higher, converted them using AVS Video Converter
, which converted them to MPEG and created a seemless video from Intro to Entry 36 along with every ToTheArk response following the respective Entry. The free version of this adds a watermark and the paid version is like $40 and $60. I bought the latter because I like to do video conversions and authoring projects. I burned a video disk using free software on Linux, which froze in the middle of Entry 26 the first night, and we managed to finish the last bit last night.
When I first saw it, I was incredibly unnerved, but watching it on TV with zero lights and with everyone discovering it together was quiet an experience. I'm not one to really scared of movies, and I believe I legitimately screamed at one point (this could also be due to my friend who is very skiddish and would scream at random things).
Since this is NoSleep, I'll end this with a creepy bit. I just posted this to try to spread the word on what I consider the best way to view this movie yet.
We watched it Saturday with some friends who came over for a party (different than those who came specifically to watch this). A tornado had passed earlier that day, took power out for several hours, and when it came on, our motion sensor would come on and off repeatedly for about an hour. This is a testing system to make sure it works. In the middle of Marble Hornets, I noticed that the light was staying on a bit long than the previous testing cycles. Then went off all together for about 10 minutes. Then, it came on for the normal duration of if there was movement. Then never came back on. Very unsettling.
