What a well-rounded text. The art is beautiful, the song is beautiful, the story is sufficiently paced, and I have a feeling that you mean this to be read between the lines. It reminds me of the endtimes. Hmm... maybe if I ever get off my rear I could write a 1000-word essay and kick all these essays' asses. :P
Thanks for letting everybody know how confrontational and insecure you are. As you appear to agree, there is nothing wrong with writing a damn essay about a deeply textual flash. If you have spent any time with academia, you should have learned by now that well-developed rebuttals don't rely on personal insults. It's a good thing people around here are detached enough not to notice when you're stifling intelligent discussion on Newgrounds.
This is a work of art.
You've done an excellent job. Congratulations.
noone can be sure what this means, maybe it means that even the innocent (represented by the child) are still close to hell and evil (represented by the 665 beside room 666, the view out onto the crazy village, being inside a cage and let down to the monsters) and the devil is always tempting them and waiting for his opportunity (when the boy litters that guy that I see as Satan comes.) I thought this was very good, like all of you're movies, and you're movies are ones I can enjoy without violence :) Very nicely done.
Can't stop myself from watching it.
I agree with Vodkarom, also, i think the mummified "authorities" represent age old depression, realeased from their graves and reaching for the weak and little ones.
but, yeah, Best flash i know so far.
great flash man.
the guy before me is a pretentious idiot. the guy with the bird face represents sickness because back in Renaissance times doctors would wear masks like that. plus he is continually connected to the 665 card. 665 meaning, to me, near death becuase 666 means hell, satan, death. it may go so far as to mean depression, which could be considered a sickness, and as far as the keys go i dont think this has anything to do with repression. i think it has to do with depression and sadness caused by people around you that hold authority over you. it represents a feeling of despair and a feeling of being trapped. in the beginning another child who is not the main character has a key around his neck. so the main character attempts to find his own key while dealing with depression and sadness which is always trying to get him. and the puppet represents a friend who shows him how to escape and deal with his problems. so basically i think the main theme behind this is that every one holds the key to their own salvation you just have to find what or who that key is. so mr..... wraith2000 i think you got this totally wrong. and i hate when people try to act like they are so much more intelligent than every one else by "revealing the true message" behind a dramatic flash such as this. the only reason im sharing my opinion is because i cant stand people like you and your ignorant posts. and i think the majority of people on NG could read more deeply into this flash than you ever could. so congrats on sounding and being a complete moron.
