This is my 21st animation and my longest animation ever - it was REALLY hard to make it from beginning to end, and there were alot of times where i almost gave up, but i kept on through it, and I'm endlessly pleased with the result.
Sound might be kind of bad, my new computer is LOUD.
I reccomend watching at low or medium quality on weaker machines.
Anyway, i've been up for almost 8 hours straight putting the finishing touches on it, so I'm crashing.
Hope you enjoy! (submit to zombie collection)

Rated 4 / 5 stars

The drawings are pretty simple, with thick lines and basic shapes,but the effects make it all the better. The mist, glow, the fading effect, all really cool. I thought it'd be pretty creepy after the intro, with great music to heighten the effect, but it turned into more of a comedy at the end. Fun to watch, but it would'e been cool with something more atmospheric/apocalyptic. :/ Keep it going!

Funny, but sound was screwed

Didn't you warn me that this was the worst piece that you had for sounds? I can see why if that was the case.

The animation was decent and the standard was still improving with time. I think that while the sound may have let it down, it's still quite funny. I'm guessing that you get this issue sorted, as with another 50 odd animations to your name, we're looking at too much to sustain with such a critical issue. There is a great few jokes from Castro's grandfather / uncle that would have been made better by subtitles, as I couldn't understand him on the second or third tries, which was a shame.

The fact that you've made it a cliffhanger as well might indicate the possibility of a sequel, so give that a shot, why don't you?

I ended up redoing this cartoon with some refined animation and better sound like a year later, under the name "NOTLS: Redux" - I would recommend watching that even though it's not in the order you're following for my cartoons, since the writing and animation aren't changed much.

I did say that this was my worst for sound, and I think it's somewhere between this and "The Real World!" for my worst sound issues. This is a better cartoon than that one though.

I ended up making a trilogy out of Night of the Living Spud, with the other two being NOTLS 2: Spud Terror, and NOTLS 3: The Evil Jeb. Hope you like those two more than this one!

on your first rated "M" flash to make it on newgrounds (at least i think its your first sorry if im wrong) awsome flash though

Battosai810 responds:

Yeah, I'm pretty positive this was my first. I don't do M rated flashes too often though - I leave the sex and violence up to the more accomplished animators and 12 year olds with their sprite flashes.

Glad you liked one of my few forays into M rating though :)

Battosai810 responds:

That's why I remade it.

is that

is that spud boy's first movie?

Battosai810 responds:

Yes, actually. He'd been appearing in comics of mine for a decade or so beforehand though.
Glad you liked it.
