My entry into the Halloween '07 contest. Tried to go for a sort of horror movie, noir style. Runs in 25 fps, and was done in little less than 2 months with a mouse. If I somehow manage to win even the smallest sum of money on this, the first thing I will buy is a graphics tablet. XD

Hm...

Well, the graphics were certainly good, and I think I got what you were going for, it just seemed to end too abruptly and it wasn't really defined enough plot-wise. The beginning (the man saying, "Aren't you a little old to be trick-or-treating?") seemed to misconstrue the thing as comedy, which may be why some people were upset with the exploding cat.

Keep what you're doing graphics-wise, but work a little harder on clearer plot and genre definition.

Never actually liked the plot. I was actually going to scrap the entire thing and start over, at one point.

Thanks for the review.

NO YOU DIDN"T. I assure you! Never seen it before (although now I pretty much have to).

Gartuitous Violence, With Style!

Excellent work! The animation was great, especially the way you make use of a relatively small palate of colors to produce an amazingly dramatic effect. The oscillations are a nice touch, and the video quality is top-notch. The slightly cartoony graphics add a little to the generally macabre atmosphere of the video.
The sound was nice, and the seamless integration of the building music and gradually reddening color at the beginning is awesome. Also, the interruption by the doorbell near the end was great.

As for the whole "cat killing" thing, as a cat lover, I have no objection to an animation of a cat getting kicked. I actually think it makes it even more frightening, because we see cats as so cute and precious.

Overall, a delightfully horrifying piece. Keep up the good work!

Very good show

I thought that the first scene was a bit long but taking on account that you made this with a simple mouse... A good movie.
Sad you drew the cat so nicely people will dislike that, no matter what you comment. LOL.
Hope you can buy that graphics tablet!!
Negatives: or the cat was made of butter or the killer was Beckam :->
The cleaver can't cut a mask but a leg flies in a blink of the eye.

Hey, it never shows his face, so you never know. Lol. If I make a sequel, that could be the twist ending.
