HALLOWEEN BANNER IS STILL UP, THUS I AM NOT LATE.

This is by far my biggest project I've ever completed. The filesize before it was compressed was so large it crashed my computer four times, and the file got corrupted three times setting me back several days. That's why the second half of the animation seemed rushed.

WARNING: I suggest setting the quality to Medium because of the intense graphics that make even my ultra-soopur-awexzomes computer lag. It also goes at about half the normal speed if you expand it.

Needs better sound

A good piece, with a well planned plot and a sensible progression. I would say that a few continuity errors crept in there, but aside from making nerds cringe, I don't think that you really made that much of a difference to the piece in all honesty.

I could do with a better quality copy of Monsters - you've got a 2 megabyte file, so there's plenty of space, without having to compress it. Have a look, to see what you can find, as it will improve the sound of the piece.

I'd have said that a few pieces needed to be amended - why did the woman dial "991"? When last I looked it was 911 or, for the benefit of the UK, three nines. These details make all the difference, as does the cop pulling up and standing in front of his car. Standard procedure means that they tend to use the car as a shield, so would probably do the same here.

When you emptied the spent rounds from the weapons, it looked great and really fit in with the piece, but the problem was that the revolver bullets were whole - the top part is the slug that gets fired. You need to draw a case without that part ;)

A little more work on drawing the car and perhaps the fingers of the cops looked a little too much like Salad Fingers in my eyes, but other than that, it was a good and ambitious piece.

Yeah, I know the bullet casings weren't realistic.
But they're more visually appealing they way I showed them, IMO.

Incredible work

Pretty insane black thing, whatever it was, nice little plot line and music video.

Animation: Animation was a little better than most of what I've seen in the flash portal. Very nice animating skills, enjoyed them quite well. Might need to watch this again.

Storyline: Some weird black creature pretty much starts to kill people and all insanity breaks loose when they can't kill it as it kills everything that decides to oppose it, pretty sick and insane, nice.

Audio: One amazing song that I still enjoy to listen to when I remember how great of a song it is.

Overall: Very nice piece of work, really enjoyed this, no real improvements needed although this should also be in the music video section as well, wonderful job.

Cool, but the "cheating", ended up hurting this...

Hello,

I really think that this is a great halloween film,
but various aspects of it hurt it's overall integrity.

I guess the thing I should mention first, is some of the animation looks really choppy, and since the monster was always in the shadows, it's hard to really capture what it looked like.

This may have been intentional to allow the audience to use their imagination so to speak, which is fair.

Unfortunately you also cheated on showing some of the kills, which were done off screen, or blurred, this was a bad decision I feel...

Since your already showing shitloads of blood spraying everywhere you might as well give the audience the "gory details".

I can only see one reason why a person wouldn't do this, and that reason hits every animator, LAZINESS.

The audio worked in your favor though, and the monster seemed cool enough,
although I still would have liked to have seen more of it.

Thanks,
- Celx

Monsta!

This flash is too epic. Not only because of the song, but because it goes so well. The points when the song builds up to a sort of semi-climatic point is when the SWAT guys come and also when the first murder happens.

The monster is even more mysterious. Alwqays in the shadows, always moving. Never seeing his whole body until the end when we think he's dead. That part is also pretty epic. THe part of the song does make it happen. The we are the monsters with his revival after the cops is certainly good.

It takes skill to sync up a song with your own flash. Making time cutting out adding to make it happen at that one specific part, all make you a talented flash animator. The graphics do not need to be improved, but that would be pretty top 50 for this type of flash.

His eye looked like a werewolves, too. Could that be what he is? The last parts I can talk about are these. One is that I saw an NG Blam/Protect symbol on an officer's hat. Polive sergeant? Could that have been me? The other is that the only thing that could stop him is a nuke. It would have ended better if he came back alive with a shot of his eye at the end like in the icon. Good flash. Good flash.

I'm glad you caught the easter egg with the badge ;D

Also, about the syncing...

The way I did it was I listened to the song about 20-30 times, and while doing so I planned out the basic timing of everything in my mind. First, I just did the major points (The first kill, the climax, etc.), then filled in the details. By the end of that phase, I knew almost exactly when to cut from one scene to another.

The animation was good, i liked the blood. Also it was totally epic, i agree a little bit like Joshouza, the art does need a bit more art work, but it was good still. And for the music, it was nice, so the artists of the song is called "Matchbook Romance"? And if i could make an animation, i could've make an animation just like this. If i could animate, i would make sequels or prequels each Halloween, anyways could you make a sequel or prequel next Halloween?

So this deserves an award, because it was nice. And all of your animations should get at least an award, i watched them all and i loved them. And the game, Highway Jumper was awesome! I should review on the game, maybe today, maybe tomorrow. But anyways this animation was one of the best animation i viewed in here today. 10 stars for you plus a favorite. Anyways here are my scores:

Graphics: 7/10
Comedy: 0/10 (Wasn't really a funny animation.)
Music: 10/10
Animation: 10/10
Creative: 9/10
Total Score: 10/10
Word: Very nice! Added to my favorites and 10 stars for you.

Well, now this the end of my review so i hope you enjoy and like it.

10/10 & 5/5
