Nota bene:
1.This is a subliminal flash,so it have a connection between the black colors.
2.For those who doesn't know,During the Stalin era, Magadan was a major transit center for prisoners sent to labour camps. From 1932 to 1953, it was the administrative centre of the Dalstroy vast and brutal forced-labour gold-mining operation and corrective labour camp system.
And please tell me what you think and read my news.

This is one of the most disturbing flashes I have seen in a while. All the warped graphics create a very eerie atmosphere. Also, the close up of that guys face, while he is running around that camp is distrurbing. I like how you put in some images of what he sees there. Body parts, some things that can't be really identified, the scene where he finds the scalp...

The sudden cut to a normal "breakfast scene" was done very well. The graphical change and the chang in colours is very good here. I like how the guy just says that he was thinking about something unimportant.

The cut back to the unsettling environment with the black colours was a good twist. Now there's some room for interpretation. What scene here was real? What was just imagination? Did that guy really sit at the breakfast table? Or was it just some hallucination to try and cope with the reality of a labour camp?

The static noise at the beginning was a tad bit too loud, since the rest of the flash was so quiet. I know where you are trying to get with the static noise. And it really does create an unsettling atmosphere. But I think it would work just as well if it wasn't as loud.

Another thing are the voices. The program you used doesn't creat good voices. It sounds just too unnatural and too emotionless. It would be great if you could find some voice actors.

Also, if you need help with the german texts/spoken parts, shoot me a message (german is my native language, so I guess I should be able to help you out ;) ). The thing is, that some of the texts don't make too much sense. Some things the woman said I couldn't figure out at all, if it hadn't been for the subtitles.

Overall, this is a well done flash. It needs some improvement with the voices, though.

This flash is special in a way that it is unsettling. The audio at the beginning is what really put me on edge, and set the tone for the rest of the animation. Hopefully we can see more of this stuff coming from you in the future.

Animation / Graphics - The animation was not at all bad. It was awkward in the sense that it seemed slightly stiff and blocky, but it was done extremely well. The look of being drawn every step of the way is something I can really appreciate as I created a lot of flip-books as a child. This animation truly has remnants of that artistic style, and I can really understand it.

Story - The story has little explanation other than the text at the bottom that is meant to be subtitles. This is exactly what makes the eerie feeling of the animation complete. There is little understanding of what exactly it is you are going to delve in to, and this permits a feeling of uneasiness, and that makes it all so perfect.

Audio - The audio at the beginning was unsettling as I said in the introduction. The general quiet nature of the rest of the animation suits it all as well, because it doesn't tell you much, or hint at what might happen in the near future. While I can complain that the static sound at the beginning was quite irritating, its effect was true and well done.

Overall - Decent submission. There are some quality issues here and there but I feel this animation does well for itself. It presents an extremely creepy feeling and does it alright. I am definitely looking forward to seeing more of your animation style. Keep it up.
