The sound effects were amazing, and it's clear you knew the feeling you wanted to convey with each part.

However, like most people said, the monster looked a bit silly. He was still kinda intimidating in my eye, but I really think its appearance could have been improved.

Aside from that, maybe it's just me seeing too much into this, but the woman seemed to me like a really bad mother: letting her daughter wander off, not being alarmed by the buffalo running away all of a sudden, just looking down at her son and crying (or something) as the monster is coming to get him, letting herself be fooled by a *completely white* duplicata of her son, etc.

Anyways, the style was good, although it could be improved upon, the idea was great, and the sound effects were amazing. The animation needed a little more work, and the monster could have been more threatening.

All in all, a good flash.

Oh my god... This is so beautiful... i was actually crying while i watched.
if you make more, make them exactly like this.

P.s. great blurring effects, really gave me a consistent point of view.

Literally nothing happens until 5:50 minutes in. Special effects can only get you so far.

i agree with the comment below me. All i felt like i was seeing was great effects and a beautiful envioronment. I didn't feel emotionally connected to the characters , and the beast looked.. well.. rather crappy. not scary in the slightest.
