The second entry in the "Tales of Horror" series. The story of a man obsessed with his mother, and the secrets she hold.
This flash kicked my ass. I worked myself to death on it for months and now I'm glad its finally finished. The story of the Banshee the mother tells is supposed to be metaphorical for our humble narriator's fate. Reviews would be greatly appreciated! I take all critics into hand.

So sad and tragic..this honestly touched me. You have an amazing way of telling a story...i was unbelievably impressed. I rated this a 5 because it most certainly deserved it....if you were to make the art and animation better i would have asked newgrounds to add a 6 button because it really would deserve it.

Thank you for sharing this story with us.

Take care!

That was brilliant my friend. I'm looking more toward your thinking, writing and imagination rather than your animation. I found the story very sad, it made me think about all the people out there in the world that really do suffer from this isolation, cut off from the rest of the world. It is a sad childhood to experience and this is what made your story so intriguing, he is forced to kill his dying mother, the only person he's really known or cared about.

As well as tragedy, you have captured the essence of horror well with great use of music, which was playing at a uneasy intensity. I also liked that the animation was in black and white, this really adds to the story, this lonely bleak cut off lake, so grey and so depressing.

I found your actual dialogue simple, but descriptive and it was to the point, you really didn't waste words, it was well narrated.

I do wish something better would have happened at the end, as the story seemed to just cut off with his mother standing at the door. But I commend you on your effort and imagination in creating this tale and it goes into my favourite Flash videos.

5/5 10/10 Great work.
