    Also I would like to add that not one of them, minus maybe the door knob one, was creepy. Also that last one, come on guy it’s obviously just trying to freak people out just like the one about the whole Alien invasion thing, granted it was intended for entertainment purposes. But yea, I found thee stories lacking.

    I’m usually a really positive guy but…these were not scary nor good. The snipe would have been almost scary if there would have been a blur or some hint of the monster bird even for a SECOND. The door knob needed ANYTHING other than just watching the door, and the radio thing…man…just facts no scare.

    I find there well told.Why would you want to tell a scary story in a light tone,it ruins the atmosphere created by the story.The stories themselves we good,they set the mood up and weren’t some stories that lose your interest.Overall,nice stories,9/10

    Hey!

    Videopastas have quite a few advantages to the written pasta IMO: sound effects, undeniable imagery, voice acting – in short, increased immersion. Once you listen and watch, you’re inevitably pulled in. This, however, can work against the form; the audience expects more from the entries. They expect new dimensions of creepy delivered audiovisually.

    I don’t really feel that most of the entries fully exploited these advantages. The voice acting was pretty dull (with the exception of Reffugio Lake, maybe). I’m thinking they wanted to come across as clinically creepy and monotonous, but it came off as bored and disinterested. There’s no inflection, there’s little sense of characterization through voices and overall they feel like someone’s reading off a scrap of paper.

    The imagery is minimal, but this varies from ‘quite well done’ (The Snipe Hunt, Locks) to ‘stock-image silly’ (Reffugio Lake).
    Of all the entries, I felt The Snipe Hunt was the most complete: there was imagery, tension-building sound effects, but there was still the problem of voice acting. The worst was ‘The Age of Information’, which was simply watching someone watch a video; boredom defined.

    The stories themselves were quite mundanely creepy, orienting around urban legends, which is a plus in my book. That said, cumulatively I think the stories wouldn’t be able to stand on their own, most of them ending in ellipses suitable only for videopastas.

    Overall, a rather poor-to-middling collection of videopastas. 6.7/10

        Hey!

        I guess I just prefer inflectioned readings. I really felt at times that the one reading was bored rather than emotionless though, especially at the end of Reffugio Lake.

    While working for the Daily Planet, ive covered a lot of creepy stories in my life. Generals who want to enslave mankind, a robot who has a personal vendetta against a man in a cape, billionaire that creates monsters on a daily basis and a large grey spiked creature that had a horrible childhood upbringing wanting to kill everything in its path. Until now, ive never seen such great creepy story telling before that made me want to watch them over and over again. I now understand that it’s the people who think and come up with originality and teamwork, or shall I say league work,that get things done in this world ;p to make something so spectacular. it is far better producing a story than sitting down doing nothing your whole life.

    They get better as you go along. I started on the 3rd installment and I was like oooooh interesting.

    As far as the monotone; it’s similar to just relaying information. I didn’t mind it. I usually do but for the sake of how short it was, I didn’t mind it.

    My Order of Scary:

    1 Locks
    2 Snipe Hunt
    3 Windows ( I actually liked POV better, but I like the recut versions voice)
    4 Reffugio Lake
    5 Signal Lost
    6 Strange Woman (I blanked out during it so that was a sign I didn’t like it lol; the ending was good…I think)
    7 Age of Information
