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!

FOLLOW UP:

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.

At first I thought it may have been just one of those things where it's disturbing for the sake of it, but as I watched there appeared to be a method to the madness. It was done elegantly and I'd be interested to see what you could do if you had access to top of the line software. It definitely reminded me of Silent Hill a bit but more gritty, like the first time I played Manhunt and the feel I got from that. Not bad.

I feel like i just watched a bad acid trip show this as a PSA to keep kids off acid , it would scare them the fuck away from it im sure.

While I was watching it, I was thinking it looked like Where the Dead Go to Die. Then I started wondering if the same people made it. So I thought I'd go look it up but then I saw that you mentioned it in the description. What do you know?

Then I saw it at the end of the video. Nice work. Very arousing.


screamerclauz responds:

haha yes I did make Where The Dead Go To Die :)
