This again?

So when has Halloween (or any other festive occasion) not been a ridciulously commercialized event? This entry was nothing new at all. By the way, where do you live? I ask this because costumes are expensive. I still see many kids wearing home-made costumes on Halloween, and that's not because they are creative.

Oh yea, and when you complain about why the movie industry does not make horror and Halloween-themed movies during the Halloween season, aren't you being hypocritical? That means you want Halloween to be an even more commercialized event with the movie industries taking advantage of the Halloween season.

Ill will fans.. Stop..

Ok, let's get one thing straight. I'm not against this cartoon because I'm anti-goth.. I AM fucking goth. Now, since I KNOW that Jonathan Ian Mathers won't read crticism, I'll lay this out for the fans, of whom which I know will mark this as abusive or unhelpful. He's not making any points. So he thinks no one's going out dressed up in bloody, gross costumes "like they used to." Me, and all my friends, still dress up in bloody, gross costumes, every year. Everyone I know isn't doing anything differently. The only trend that seems to be in fashion more and more is the girls "sluttly version" of such and such a costume (ie - slutty nurse, slutty snow white, slutty nun). The only valid point in this cartoon was that there is a shitty crop of horror movies this year. And this year has been horrible for the movie industry in general.
I'm going to lay it down for all goths everywhere, pure and simple-You're doing yourself a great disservice by, not only not blaming this, but giving it a high enough rating for a "blue-outline." You let Jon Mathers sub-par work get worse and worse every two weeks (yes, I follow Neurotically Yours quite a great deal, though I've never been a big fan). You validate every point that the anti-emo/goth movement makes. You rally behind a champion who is VISIBLY NOT EVEN TRYING! He uses the same fucking animation week in and week out. The BG seems new, but that's it. What we have in this toon is Foamy ranting about how great Halloween once was, when he could apply the same rant to any situation he wants (everything was soooo much better back then). Please, don't just mark this as unhelpful just because I didn't like it. Take my words into consideration; is IllWillPress really trying? Or is he making money off of your own gullibility? I thank you for listening to a REAL goth's rant.

I gave you a 1, for eff-- trying?

You've started to try to use blurred hand movements for inbetweens, it's just not working. It looks like Foamy's hands are turning wrinkly then smooth. Work on that. Also, for christ sake use some easing. Your movements will never look smooth if you just have this character waving his arms with no change in speed. As for the rant itself, it was as useless and pointless as the last 500 cartoons you've shat out. Seriously, get your act together. I am completely baffled as to how you still get praised for this kind of crap.. And the exploded boobs at the end.. Nice attempt at appealing to the 13-15 year old fan boys.

Whenever I make negative reviews to a foamy movie, it's interesting to see my helpfulness guage fluctuate so much. Before saying my review was unhelpful, just read it and try to see how I've been looking at things. I actually used to like foamy, which you can see if you look back on my oldest page of reviews. However. I've come to see that he isn't all that great.
I'll break the movie down...
Graphics: The backgrounds art is good. The character art and animation isn't. It lacks easing and shading & shadowing, and the hand frames are sloppy. 2.
Style: It's too much like illwillpress's other movies. It's really getting old... 1.
Sound: Foamy's voice is getting a tad on the annoying side, and there are parts when one actually hears his voice crack. 2.
Violence: The only violence was a rather gross and unnecessary bit at the end. 1.
Interactivity: -
Humor: It's just not funny. See, when comedians use 'complaining' humor, they have to include witty comments and snappy punchlines. This is just... complaining. There's nothing funny in that. And the last bit... well, that was uncalled for. 0.
Overall: 1. I wish illwillpress would just make something different with real voices and good animation. Foamy has been milked dry. 1.
