I really want some expert feedback on this one because to be quite honest it scared the bleep out of me when I watched it. This would have to have taken long hours and many people to pull off the effects to hoax something like this. this thing looks like predator in its camoflaging. Its presented as a shadow being, but I have seen those all my life.. they never looked ANYTHING like this. I would like our CGI experts to pipe up here and give their expert opinions.
If its fake. my hats off to the creator, if its not.. this scares the crud out of me.

They don't look anything like shadows, they just looked cloaked with transparency. The last creature looked like a giant scorpion.

actually if you followed it, it was tall like a humanoid then leaned down in a sprint type of position or sideways stretch. I am going to put up a screenshot because in that moment you can see the eyes.. and it looks like a grey.

I have two words for you

Blair Witch.

Wow, amazingly crisp sound from BEHIND the camera as if everyone was miced. Crisp, crunchy sound effects. Appropriately astonished remarks.

Mhm. That's just what we need.

I'm 99% sure its a fake, but I would love to watch a movie, with those kind of effects. Kinda like Signs, but instead of aliens, creepy aliens like that in a video.

I enjoyed that for a fake one. Not disappointed, enjoyed it.

IT'S A PREDATOR! Anyway if this is fake it's very well done.

Don't think I have ran into this video before here, and being that this is the first time I have seen it I will share some of my preliminary observations on few things that stand out to me regarding the film.

The Audio:
First and foremost the accompanying sound is in very good quality, from what I have gleaned from listening to the youtube link. Decent stereo image even with the low quality bitrate of youtube audio, which means to me that the background audio track did not come from a mono source. Just a FYI, click the youtube link and you can get a higher quality version of this by ticking the little HQ box.


The Video:
Now I really can't comment on this aspect too much at the moment but the creature visuals are pretty impressive. That could be a detractor to it being a real occurance but I will leave you all up to your own with that. The one thing about the visuals that do stand out to me is the quality of it, I'm not sure if it is a formatting thing... but it is basically the black bars (upper and lower horizontals) that seem a bit off to me, acpect ratio?

So going on the information we have, this camcorder was found by a hunter in 1997 with tape intact?
The odds seem slightly stacked against it from here on out with me: for one, the probability of that are astronomically low... but one must assume that the film was taken at an earlier date, early 1997~prior, by some people traipsing through the woods. What needs to be addressed is the technology of the era first and foremost, as I am not 100% certain on this, but I believe mini DV was just entering the game in '95ish and most consumer cams in circulation were Hi-8 or VHS-C. Vidoe is not my forte' though.

As a footnote for research:
What about the audio quality on these cameras from the era? AFAIK there were not too many out there that had dedicated stereo mics on consumer products. My old Sony 8mm handycam had crap audio, and I'm not sure it ever picked up anything near the quality level of this... ever.

Take that as you will.

To me it seems like it would be a project of some kind by somebody. Perhaps a viral thing for a bigger movie? Or a (very) short film?

The special effects aren't anything spectacular in this day and age. It could be done with any number of combinations of relatively cheap video editing software.

I vote hoax, albeit a very entertaining one.

I believe its fake, just by how the video fades out. It fades out like skipping frames of an old film reel and I doupt very much they had this kind of camera. Furthermore, magnetic tapes don't skip like this. Lastly the skipping looks like it was made by amateur via a video editing program.

fake

This is so plainly fake that it makes me wonder at the sanity of the OP. Did you "honestly" think that there was a chance that this was real? Give me a break.....

One more thing, on the audio deal: (forgive the back to back and font-screwery)


Upon re-listening, around 31 or 32 seconds into the video you hear what sounds like and approaching thunderstorm, not sure what that means as far as anything but it has me wondering how long one of these older video tape recorders would survive in such conditions. Hrrmmm


That's all I got for now folks, like I said... jut my input.
Oh, and yes... I messed up the size thingy... fonts are not my friends tonight.


Cheers,

I vote fake as well. The sound was too crisp/clear and it "seemed" acted to me. Especially the girls lines. Although I thought the effects were too high a quality to be complete amatuer. If fake, the maker had some pretty expensive video editing software and knew how to use it. And how long was it supposed to have been sitting in the woods before being found?

That's my leaning at the moment as well ... maybe I didn't just come right out and say it, but there you have it. (note to self... no more beating around the bush)


I'm more curious about the audio more than anything, as the beings 'noises' appear to me to be studio made, and the sound is pretty darn good. Gotta say, if I lost a nice rig like that back in nineteen ninety-something I would definately be coming back for it unless I was dead.


Cheers,

its not that well done to me, I mean take a good look at the ''shadowy figure'', the whole time the camera is shaking like hell but the shadow figure doesn't shake along with the background at all when its moving

I think some of those sound effects were from Doom 3.

If you listen to th ebackground audio, the birds dont freak out and fly away at all the screaming from the two people!!

Unfortunately, and luckily for the two involved, fake!!

I vote hoax. The girl's lines were like she read them off a script. The creature snarling even after the camera was dropped sounded like something from a video game (like one of the posters above mentioned). Lastly the skipping at the end... I've never seen a tape do that. Good effects though... be nice for a movie if they could find some better actors!

I know there are things that scream it must be fake but can an ammateur do something this good? And why would they do it? No one has taken credit for it.
I just find it odd. I really would love to hear how this is done or could be done by internos or mungodave

Blair Witch is exactly what came to my mind when I saw this...
