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.

Just what is the limit of your imagination?
budget, that's what it is.

I always get reminded of recent Silent Hill games when I watch this video, specifically the part where those franchises fail to deliver genuine scare while this video succeed. your film shows an effective usage of grotesque that reflects deep psychological scar. You can tell it's low budget by the weird way the animation can be sometime, yet at the same time it is the same awkward animation that sometime make this film stands out. For example, when the woman is dancing in the cathedral, it seems like an amateur animator trying to make dance scene. Yet when we see that the lady is in fact demon, I actually wonder if this inhuman movement is the way that the demon moves normally as well, which is outlandish and disturbing.

The main character is very well developed. Originally portrayed as disturbed man or sort, he slowly breaks down psychologically to the point of corruption at the end of the movie. Weird hair physics? To me it just accentuate the whole otherworldly quality of the animation ( I actually enjoy seeing it bouncing)

Hmm... This was quite... disturbing. But, judging by your additional description, I am guessing that's what you were aiming for. So, kudos for almost making me poop bricks. For review, well, I usually don't like 3D animation, but I think it fits this setting. The sound accompanied animation well, IMO. I kinda get the story, but I am guessing some people don't.

Not in my faves, yet. However, if you ever come up with another one with front page, I will sure to view it.

Also, this reminded me of We Are the Strange. Have you ever seen that movie?


screamerclauz responds:

Thanks! yes M dot Strange is a friend of mine, we do a podcast together about animation
