As a matter of debate – it could be the prequel to Cloverfield. It could feature kids filming with a Super 8 camera and who happen to catch sight of an alien.
Copies of the Super 8 trailer are already being YouTube yanked. At the time of posting this one is still live – watch it, if you can and pay attention to the flickering grey images that join the shots.
Think there might be a hidden message in there? Yup. You’re right.
The brains over at the Unfiction forum have collected all the pieces.
Put those together and you get “The Scariest Thing I Ever Saw.”
There is a matching domain worth note. The domain www.scariestthingieversaw.com/ was registered via one of those proxy services.
It has a touch of Lost about it. A computer console that needs some sort of attention but also seems to be broken.
Play around and you’ll see the countdown. If we go back to the brain power at Unfiction we can ride on CrispyG4’s maths and workout when that countdown is due to finish – some time on the 15th.
There are more clues, though.
This time I need to credit Super8News with the investigation.
They’ve a possible connection between the name “D. Morris” and the apparant testimony of a Master Sergeant Dan Morris talking about UFOs. The testimony is up on www.bibliotecapleyades.net.
Too much of a stretch? What do you think? Remember; it would be easy enough to research this stuff in advance, with a viral marketing campaign in mind, just to make sure there was fuel for the fire.
