A small town news team discovers a box of video tapes where a faceless figure dressed in a dark suit, haunts and torments a family... slowly driving them insane. Soon after, they realize that the "Operator" has begun to stalk them as well.
The middle class Emmy receives a video camera at home and her husband Tom starts filming. They believe they won a prize from the mall. The college student Beth is alone and bored in the empty campus and also receives a camera. Out of the blue, they are instructed to film and not call the police; otherwise they will die. Meanwhile the unemployed Leonard that lives with his mother receives a clown outfit and make-up and instructions to receive ten thousand dollars. After moments of tension, their lives are tragically entwined. Who is the stranger behind the prank?Written by

I don't understand the bad reviews of this movie. It wasn't predictable. The music was great and perfectly timed. The acting was great. Especially Leonard (the clown) who was such a comedic relief and so likable. The ending scene was done so well, I was stunned and had to rewind it so my husband could watch the last 5 minutes with me. Of all the horror movies I've watched (and I almost exclusively watch horror films), this one actually scared me even with the comedic breaks. I think anyone that gives this less than a rating it deserves is either not a horror fan or doesn't appreciate a stunning piece of art like this is. Definitely a 10 and though I don't buy movies often, I'll have to purchase this one!
