i was a bit bored, and i realised i hadnt done any flash for a while, so i decided to try a movie using a new animation style ive been experimenting with. its been done before, but im new to it, so excuse me if it seems a bit slow.
the movie has got blood in it, but it is a halloween one, so it has to have blood realy :D
i added a game into the pre-loader as i hate boring loading pictures.
there *was* gonna be an extra hidden scene, but ive decided to turn it into a sequal. instead theres some extra props.
you may want to watch the movie twice to see everything.

i didnt start off with a script, the story came as i animated, so sorry if its a bit random.

please vote fairly, dont post spoilers in reviews, and enjoy!

followed the link in your msn name, great stuff, im nothing compared to you, liked the style. only thing i can see that needs improvement is the pace, its a bit slow, but that could be stylistic.


Just great!
This was very interesting. The strange noises and music made it sound not funny, but like black humor. This was impressiv, how you thought of such storyline. For instance the 'Take off my body' was very funny.

I would like to see from you soon, keep up the good flash.

GCool responds:

wow thanks!
well there is gonna be a sequal (as mentioned in the movie), so you can look forawrds to that for some time before christmass, i may do another lil animation some time soon, but i wont start it straight away, since its my birthday soon :D

i still dont get the low scores on the interactivity, thats why i put the game in! im sure i coulda got a 10 if youd realised :D

XD now i want to get this into the halloween colection.

thanks for the awsome score! best so far :D


At the beginning, i thought it was going to be another rubbish flash, the characters moved really slow, and i normally hate that, but i dunno... it actually worked in this, i actually "loved" that skeleton character, it was cool.

So uhh... yeah, this has everything i normally hate, but it all seemed to work, so well done!

GCool responds:

haha, cool, yeah, i woulda sped it up if i could. ah well.
its hard, this animating style, comedic timing can be hard too, i meen, i wanted the skeliton to move slowly anyway, cos they seem to look better that way.
im actually pleased with it, i dont usually like slow stuff either, and i wouldnt have posted this if i didnt like it :D
the skeliton i tryed to make look scary, but still match the style, then when i showed it to one of my friends on msn she just put 'the skeliton is so CUUUTE!'
so yeah, thats the birth of that ;)
so from then on i made him cute as i could.

as for comedic timing, i think i put too much of a pause at the end, cos it seems like everyone closes it before they get to the 'happy halloween' scene..


Randomness, yay for the random! I liked it, and the way he walked off-screen, nice work, keep it up, i liked the ending :D

GCool responds:

hehe cool, thanks for the great score! great for my work anyways XD

Not bad at all

Keep up the good work!

I like the way you madethe character walk off the screen and the way you shook the screen after every footstep from the monster. Good effects. I 5'd it so that it's hopefully protected. After all, it's obvious you spent a lot of time on this and I hate it when voters blam more than good enough entries like this. Keep up the good work!

GCool responds:

thanks, i thought some people might like the walking-out-of-the-screen effect, or at least confuse them a bit ;)
the screen shake took ages, and i added the skipping music for effect :D
thanks, yeah i spent quite a while on it, and i allways like some positive comments
