Rated 3 / 5 stars

It was okay. Honestly I had trouble keeping myself interested. I found the style to be quite dull, at least the monster anyway, looked kind of silly. The story was simply a family running from a monster to all day which honestly I don't find to be that great, audio/music was great though. I think you nailed that.

It isn't all bad and lost you did pretty good all considered, definitely something here keep it up.

P.S.: Didn't seem artsy to me, it was just a simple plot. Even if it was artsy it's worth something, not 0 stars so take note everyone.

lol. i get that having a sad/bitter ending is supposed to be artsy. but it's really obvious you only did it for the same of trying to be artsy. it accomplished nothing. there was literally no meaning here. i had all kinds of ideas for interesting twists and turns and subtle meanings throughout the whole thing and yet kept waiting to be surprised.

the end was pointless.

the art was ok. music was ok.

and if i know NG, this is going to get overrated.

I blam this. I give it a 0.

you need to learn to tell a story.

Masterfully put together. I thought the atmosphere you created was beautiful.

I gave it four stars instead of five because as much as I liked it, some of these scenes were STRAIGHT out of the game Limbo. I cringed a few times because it's hard to ignore the similarities. It's easy to see you were inspired by Limbo, which I have no issue with, but I would have liked to see more original ideas. Not saying you didn't have any. I just would have liked to see more.

But over all, you still did an awesome job with this. That's obvious.

I am simply astonished.... The soundtrack is top notch, it's scares the willies out of you while the stylish graphics turn every frame into a piece of art. I won't lie if I say that a horror movie never impressed me as much as this movie did. It just absorbed me. The only thing that I found distracting were the titles. I understand that they purposely split the movie into separate parts of different mood and atmosphere but to me they seemed to last forever. However, these episodes in between the titles... I do get the feeling that it should have been hell of a lot of work and the result is. absolutely. terrific. Thank you for sharing this. You did just great!
