Halloween 2008 Results 2008-11-06 16:09:56


If you contributed to AlmightyHans' comic book, please READ HIS POST. He is trying to hunt down a lot of contributors to wrap up some last-minute loose ends.

Time to announce the winners of the Halloween competition! As usual we have tried not to stray too far from the audience voting, but have made adjustments where they seem fit.

I decided to break games into their own category so they could get some decent prizes.

Due to the sheer awesomeness of this years entries, the pot has been raised from $5250 to $8750 in total prize money!

MOVIE AWARDS

1. $1000 - Jerry and the Closet

2. $1000 - EW: Matt Sucks

3. $1000 - The Dangers of Halloween

4. $500 - Flecko's Halloween

5. $500 - Rockoons 2

6. $500 - Nocturnus

7. $500 - Ghost Crush - MAGICAL ARTNESS

8. $250 - Gone Too Far

9. $250 - The Ladys Room - SCARIEST!

10. $250 - Jigsaw

11. $250 - SCHOOL 13 - H.S. - SAW 2

12. $250 - Sing you Sinners

13. $250 - The Murderer

14. $250 - Rocket Crotch Halloween

15. $250 - KILLER - DISTURBINGEST!

16. $250 - Edd Egg - Saw

GAME AWARDS

1. $500 - Orchestrated Death

2. $500 - Look out, Mr Johnson!

3. $500 - The bright in the screen

Congrats! All winners will receive stickers and a 2009 NG Calendar, soon to be released in the store!

Rather than PM Bob, all winners should fill out this form. Prize money will be split based the percentages specified in your submission!

BONUS CONTEST: You have until Monday to respond to this thread with a SINGLE recommendation for "overlooked gem" of the Halloween contest. I can already think of a bunch that I didn't include in this post.

The winning gem will receive $100 and the person who discovers it will receive a 2009 Newgrounds Calendar! To enter, respond with a single submission and include 3-4 sentences about WHY you think it is one of the best non-prize-winning submissions. To post a link like the ones above, simply paste the URL of the submission on a line by itself.

Winners for Best of October will be announced early next week along with the winning Halloween gem.

I'll also be making a dedicated post next week for Edmund's CD, now available in the store. For now, here is the short version; Edmund has been contributing to Newgrounds since 2001 and has won lots of awards. This CD contains the past ten years of his life: comics, sketchbooks, animations, movies, games and commentary. The first run of 50 CDs are signed by Edmund and buying them will earn you a limited edition icon like the one cableshaft got with his purchase. Once these 50 sell out, you will still be able to get unsigned CDs with the "standard" icon, but only the first 50 will get the "signed" exclusive icon and signed disc.

CONGRATS WINNERS!!!


¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Personally, I think Rockoons should have finished higher.

But that may just be my bias towards funny animals talking.

Congrats to all the winner.

ok my entry to the bonus competition is this

We tried for mounths to get this right , and for us 2 begginers we done extremely well , enjoy the flash and it contains zombies for zombie fans :). We're both still improving with flash so dont expect it to be perfect animation.

Maybe it should be the begginers Attempt reward :)

That would be me =D
With the quality animations that got in, I'm actually quite surprised to have gotten a daily fifth. I didn't see a lot of "real scary" animations though. Oh well (:
Congratulations to the winners!

I seriously think that This_is_Halloween by DerajN really deserved to be on at least that top 15 list. It seemed to be voted a lot lower than it should. It really depicts a scary atmosphere like the contest had suggest and is very smooth animation. He did an awesome job and deserves recognition.

Check it out for yourself. I personally believe most people probably watched this movie and seeing it in mostly black and white are quick to give it a low score without actually taking in the feel they get from and and the awesome choreographing to the song especially the very impressive lip syncing. You can see another example of people giving a black a white movie like Killer getting a low score but still winning. DerajN's movies This_is_Halloween is lengthy and full of great animation with a scary feel, what more do you want for this Halloween competition? I think this movie was probably just overlooked by the judges and deserves a second chance.

Wow awesome, thanks so much :)!

Congtratulations to all the winners.

Response to Halloween 2008 Results 2008-11-06 16:35:13


out of order: Nocturnus is too low and eddsworld and lazymuffin are too high.
FIX THIS TOM


you are probably not funny

Response to Halloween 2008 Results 2008-11-06 16:36:01


Great they were brilliant entries! Absolutey everything on that list is worth checking out!

Rocket crotch made the list, that made me smile :)

Congrats to the winers...
The 1st place was given to the right person :3

Response to Halloween 2008 Results 2008-11-06 16:39:29


Congrats to all the winners, those are great flashes, all of them. I haven't watched all of them though, but I'll do it when I have enough time :D

Cheers.

Lucky bastards, loved the Jerry one too by the way.

There's a much scarier Halloween flash than all those!

I just gotta find it!

It's where a kid in a bunny suit goes up to a house, finds a piece of candy, then off-camera, gets strangled and decapitated and dismembered!

DAMN, wasnt everyone supossed to fill out that form? like submitting your mailing info so its saved just like your personal NG account info? i feel dumb now :C

Also, Eddsworld should had been lower on the list. It was kinda funny but not as good as the other ones around there...

Response to Halloween 2008 Results 2008-11-06 16:54:04


Haha, oh, Tom, you're going to bankrupt in your generosity.

This is really awesome, though. Thanks so much, guys. I'm also glad you did make adjustments where you saw necessary. Mine definitely didn't deserve to be in the top five, so I would've just felt terrible about robbing some more deserving movie of the $500. I feel great in a tenth place, especially seeing all the deserving movies got the prizes they should have.
I was really voting for Jerry, Matt Sucks, and Dangers of Halloween (voted for those almost every day). Glad to see they all won.
Man, it was exciting to come on and see this post!

Awesome Halloween. Newgrounds continues to showcase really entertaining material.

Oh wow thanks everyone. This is great.
Congrats to all.

Hallow Statistic by Scoot I thought was overlooked. It had some spectacular animation moments and it was quite eerie at times too. It was definitely overlooked, in my opinion anyway =]

Forgot why...

This is one of the best subissions that didn't win because it has a very scary style which goes great with Halloween. It is animated well, and it has a good plot. It is a very interesting movie and it is spooky. Watch it and you should like it.

Response to Halloween 2008 Results 2008-11-06 17:11:14


I say the Halloween entry that I failed to make cos i was too busy with stuff and therefore doesn't actually exist should win loads of money.

But yeah some good winners there. I liked Andrew K's one.
