The tale of a boy confronting his fear of what could be out there in the dark.

NOTE: This submission is supposed to be (graphically) dark. However, since monitors have all different settings, if the film is too dark, push SPACEBAR to brighten it up.

This is my second flash film. This was just a test of some different drawing styles. I did the entire thing with the paintbrush, which was a new technique for me. The end is frame-by-frame, which is the first time i tried it.


that was cool

nice touch

Good ..

But I saw this coming.
Sounded just like a bedspring's squeaking. :)

Good use of fades albeit absent from frame animations.


SecretAgentRege responds:

haha, yeah, it is kinda predictable if you either know me, or have the same mindset. It was supposed to sound sort of like bed springs, though; the end wouldn't have worked if it was, say, a monster's growl. I'm surprised more people don't find it extremely predictable.

thanks for the review

Great stuff

This was preety funny, you feel as if something bad is going to happen such as a evil clown coming out or something but really it the kids parents doing it. Also, nice way of using one frame at a time motion.


That ending was so totally unexpected. Or maybe I'm just being naive again. Only one complaint: that squeaky toy sound seemed kinda inappropriate.

SecretAgentRege responds:

thanks. yeah, the sound is kinda inappropriate, but, at the same time, i couldn't have something that sounded completely far from abed squeaking, and i didn't want to have it sound exactly like a bed squeaking. If i find a better sound, I'll throw it in there.

thanks again for the review

lol that was great!

my god, that reminds me when i first say my parents doing it... O_O it was freaky lol! *pokes the stuffed bear* is it dead? o_O'
