Well, when you are next to the event horizon (as seen by a distant bookkeeper), you do not see the event horizon right next to you, right? Due to different metric you see it ahead from you at some distance and thus of smaller size. Thus you see more gravity around you because you see "frozen in time" collapsing black hole of SMALLER lateral size than the bookkeeper sees from far away. Thus you see gravitons originated under the event horizon of distant observer (EHDO). Coming closer (thus crossing EHDO) makes you "see" even deeper into the black hole - and event horizon will apperar even smaller.

So gravitons do not have to travel superluminal to "build" gravity around black hole - in each distance you are still "outside" of collapsing shell of mass which generates virtual gravitons.
