I started making flash movies six years ago. I was 12 back then, and since then I just didn't have the patience or commitment to completely finish a flash movie. Finally, I managed to get a movie done to submit it to the internet for the whole world to see. This is my first published flash movie.

It began in march 2009, when me and my friend decided to have a sort of flash contest. We had two weeks to create a flash, submit it to Newgrounds and see who got a higher score. The contest was cancelled as my friend didn't have the time to make flash in the two weeks. This movie turned out to be much bigger than I expected, so I took my time and finished it in a period of six months.

I kind of regret how this movie didn't quite turn out how I originally envisioned. I had a deadline, so I had to cut some corners in the making of this movie. I wanted to make this movie longer, more thrilling and more cinematic than it is.

Yet, I finally did it. I published my first flash, and to me that's all that matters. I hope you enjoy it. :)

Edit 10.9.-09: FRONT PAGE! Friggen' awesome! It's like a dream come true. :D

A week after I first submitted this, I was disappointed for the fact that this movie was so overlooked. It got only 20 reviews. Within a day since Paranormal Creatures got a front page, the amount of reviews was doubled. Great!

To celebrate this, I just submitted an updated version of the movie. It contains only small improvements, no big changes: I reworked some rough looking animations and corrected the mistake where the scratches on the main character's jacket disappeared in some shots.

Thank you for everyone for your support and the constructive critisism. Because of your reviews I now know what I am good at and what I need to improve in my future work. I have a lot of awesome ideas for my next flash. Just stay tuned...

I liked it.

The creature itself reminded me of the chupacabra. I also liked the fact that this didn't nessecarily need a bunch of extra fluff. It would make a great series too!

My 2 cents

You wonderfully managed to build the suspense however the animation was too clear, clean, almost to a clinical point, to be believable for a horror. It should have been darker, smudged...hope I'm making any sense here.

Nevertheless, I see some major talent here. Get out the almost robotic movement at points, add ambience and I'm positive you'll do (even) better.

P.S. Sound was spot on, kudos there!

good but..

bit anti-climactic. i mean.. he goes in and sees this evil monster and starts running.. but all it took was a whack from a stick and it runs off.

dont get me wrong, i loved the flash and it actually made me jump when i saw its face cause i was expecting it not to show itself yet.

Suspenseful

What really got me was the beginning. It doesn't take a lot scare me, but I know what is scary and what is not. The atmosphere, the animation, the music and tone was really at its best, and there was this eerie feeling that kept me in the edge of my seat.

The action was smooth, and the animation was pretty good, although there were parts of the flash when it felt somewhat cardboard and flat. But the flash also had its great scenes: I really loved the first-person view while the character was holding out the flashlight and his camera, and the eye movements that made him more real and life-like.

I'm a bit disappointed at the ending, though. It felt like that was all there is. There's a story in it, but the story is just presented as 'this is a story' and that's it. It has a potential to be something greater, but instead you just ended it with something ambiguous. ... but I guess I'm not understanding the story much. I'm sorry, but I felt like I was missing something important.

But this is a great flash nonetheless, and a great addition to the front page. These days, this site is being filled with (some) meaningless garbage that doesn't make sense, but I'm glad to find something different once in a while. Really looking forward to your future submissions.

wow

this movie was well thought thru, it kept me holding my breath to the end. It sort of reminded me of the book watchers by Dean koontz
