The less you know about the series when going in, the more scary and exciting it is. I am writing this while it has just started its 3rd and final season. So far, it is very intriguing, atmospheric and terrifying and for any fan of horror or found footage. The threat introduced in the very beginning of the series is not only visually scary but its vibes are found everywhere in the series. If there is anything worth watching online, this is it.
Marble Hornets Season 1 and 2 is available on DVD!
The film is about 5 random citizens who take part in a Big Brother-esque web reality show where the have to stay 6 months in a secluded area, if they last they win 100 Million Dollars (Each, I'm not sure)However,if one person leaves they ALL lose.
Without spoiling too much, towards the end of there stay, weird and creepy things start to happen that escalate to a bloody ending.
I really enjoyed this film, the acting, the camera-work, the story is great and for me is very engaging as it also works as a satire of all that reality TV crap everybody seems obsessed with nowadays. The ending shifts the film from a creepy thriller to a full blooded horror which may change people's opinions about the film positively or negatively, but I still found it entertaining.
The film is overall a very bleak, disturbing, rude and violent film, that most people should like if they are into this sort of film.
I suggest getting the special DVD edition as it comes with many extras and an interactive viewing mode which gives a lot more insight and footage into the story,characters, squashes plot holes and answers questions not explained in the standard edition (The film was originally 4 hours long) So it's good so this interesting interactive experience as it adds more replay value to the film. Not saying that the standard version isn't good, its that the interactive extra adds a WHOLE lot more.
There are people absolutely hating this film, saying its the worst film they have ever seen. They obviously don't watch much movies. They can, not like it, but its not one of the worst films ever made in the least. Give this film a chance...
Chronicle jumps straight in showing the audience the harsh life of a troubled boy named Andrew. He, his cousin and his friend Steve discover a mysterious crater and within there an object that grants them extraordinary powers. What starts out as learning these powers and using them for fun turns into a dark tale of what our generation would do with limitless power.
Chronicle. Kics. ASS.
Everything from the acting, the effects and the story make Chronicle a joy to behold as it takes the over used genre and takes if for an enjoyable spin with glorious action and a really deep story not shown in the trailers.(This film is best enjoyed not seeing any footage but knowing that it is a found footage film). I am being very conserved about what I give away but I will tell you, check this film out. I believe you will have a great time. Even if you don't like found footage films, this is great! My father isn't a fan of the genre but he loved it.
Not Oscar worthy, but what it sets out to achieves, it does to a genius level..
Worth a trip to the cinema and I would even buy it on Blu-Ray!!!
Chronicle - 4 out of 5 = 80%
