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.

I liked it, in whatever way someone could like this. I think that the message (I hope you intended one) can be a bit hard to discern through all of the strange and haunting images. Outside of that I must say you have a lot of dark thoughts, and a lot of guts to really put yourself out there with material like this. Not everyone has that confidence. There is a lot here to chew one, and I think I like that most of all.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

The animation is impressive, but it's slow and boring. Other people obviously like it, it's just not my thing.

People find this review helpful!

I liked it. How did you do the animation? You should do a tutorial on how you did it because I think it works. Great visuals and sound design. The yt link for the trailer of your film doesn't seem to be working.

The short and the use of color reminds me of the Art House Horror film Subconscious Cruelty. Check that out if you can.

screamerclauz responds:

Thanks! I've been trying to do a tutorial vid/making of but I'm not very good at it. Subconscious Cruelty is a cool movie though, I sampled it on my last two albums haha For some reason newgrounds put a sapce in the "watch" word of the link to the trailer, it won't let me take it out so you might just have to do it manually! :)
