    there's 15 of these videos so far. I was up last night and watched them all which was a bad idea, they freaked me right out.
    They're not long but man, they make my flesh crawl!
    (fyi, there are no screamers. Just general creepiness.)

    weird ... and fun.

    It appears to be a load of bullshit, or I would assume it is - but fun...

    It's an ARG (alternate reality game). An interesting as hell one at that. It all started with a few pics on Somethingawful's paranormal pic thread.

    There's also a twitter account, and someone called 'totheark' is replying to the original videos.
    Here's a wiki if anyone is interested:
    Marble Hornets: Marble Hornets

    I read about it on Somethingawful a week or so ago and was hooked. If anyone wants to wade through a shitload of pages, here's the somethingawful thread:
    Marble Hornets: A Creepy, Very Well Done ARG - The Something Awful Forums

    Also if anyone wants to waste time with more ARG's, there's a site dedicated to them:

    ^^^Thanks for those links - that's really interesting, I hadn't heard of ARG's. I think there'll be a few more internet hours spent looking into these.

    I watched it alone at 4am this morning alone and it creeped me the hell out, but figured it was supposed to be some "Blair Witch" type of thing. But this makes it far more intriguing. And it's really well done - I'm not easily spooked, but this one got me!

    It looks like of hoaxy.. I read that it originated on SomethingAwful's forums. Still creepy, though.

    eta: Ah, yes, L1049 beat me to it.

    Yesh, it's a total hoax/set-up but it is so well done. And Slenderman is such an intruiging character....where is he from? What does he want?

    If you're interested in following this, you might like to look around the UNF forums section on Marble Hornets.

    It did. I am a die-hard goon and it didn't creep me out in the least. They come up with some freaky/scary/wild shit but to me, this particular ARG was kind of lame.

    They did some cool photoshops and drawings with it, though.

    Aw, didn't that last video even make you jump?? I have a high 'squee' factor but that one got me...
