I tried to get this out before Halloween, but the Hurricane knocked the power out for a few days, so pretend it's a few days ago and go to digital hell!

By reading a lot of comments a lot of you seem to bring up the same few points, so rather then respond one by one I'm just going to put this up.

"There's no story and/or it's confusing" - There's a story, though it's technically a "back story". I wrote how the characters ended up in the place they are but didn't put it any where in the short. The purpose of the film was to simulate a hellish dimension or a really intense panic attack. The main character enters this place not knowing who he is or how he got there and is acting on feelings/instincts alone.He wanders from scenario to scenario clueless and terrified which, hopefully, makes the viewer confused and scared as well. Like if I'm trying to get you to see through the eyes of the character instead just follow his story. To do that I wanted the viewer to only have as much information as the man with no memory. My point being that I wasn't telling to tell a detailed narrative story, I wanted to take the viewer on a roller coaster ride of panic and terror!

"The animation is bad and/or the hair physics suck" I know, but I animated the entire short by myself using home computers and a hacked xbox 360 kinect. I never went to animation school and I don't have a team of animators. I am in the middle of making a feature film and took a break for a month to try and make a halloween special for the internet. This short is what I can accomplish on my own without any help or money in 30-40 days time.

"the sound is really noisey and/or loud" - I wanted to use a soundtrack of only noise to heighten that sense of dread and terror. I admittedly only listened to it on my home speakers, which include a subwoofer, etc. I never tested it in headphones or regular computer speakers, so my mistake if it sounds way out of sorts on some home speakers. If i ever decide to release it on DVD I might pay to get it remastered first.

The entire short was made by me (ScreamerClauz) using Cinema 4d R13, Adobe suite CS6, Interposer, Daz Studio, IPI Studio and a bunch of plugins.

It's...diferent than most animations. Though the sound quality does rather suck on laptop speakers, the disjointed reality of the short definitely enhances the experience you are trying to give viewers.

Psycho-drama at it's best.
Disjointed, mysterious, macabre, and brutal. The atmosphere leaves the audience confused, and uneasy. The ambiguity and recurring elements allow for open ended interpretations. Great use of color and shade enhance the surrealism of the nightmare.
Surely, this is what hell must be like.

wtf was that?! animation is good, models are great but still........how to say it gently.....IT'S THE ONE BIG PIECE OF SENSELESS CRAP! Halloween was supposed to be scary, BUT THIS IS NOT SCARY, IT'S TERRIBLE! no normal human will like it! because there is no story, just a bunch of UTERELY DISGUSTING scenes, SHOWING THE INSIDE WORLD OF A NECROPHILE! THIS IS AMORAL!
