UPDATE: Huge thanks to Tom, Newgrounds, and the community for everything they've done to support this piece from front page to daily/weekly awards, and to first place in the Halloween competition this year! You guys are great!

Happy Spastic Flailing day Newgrounds! After lots of being eaten alive by insects, moving, traveling, and procrastinating I finally got around to finishing this thing. The entire concept of the movie came out of realizing that the little guys in my work have faces like power outlets. And that's pretty much all I have to say about this.

The awesome music was contributed by the following artists:
"Joker" and "Personal"
by Sulek (myspace.com/doctorsulek)
Both songs are available on their album entitled "Believer's Lane."

"Impact Event"
by the Hamster Alliance (hamsteralliance.com)
Available for free online download at the link above.

Flash likes to remove sound layers tonight and I had to reduce image quality a little to allow for somewhat reasonable download times. Higher Quality: barfquestion.com/viewmovi e_grumatorium.html

Also WATCH TO THE END OF THE CREDITS if you have questions about one of the plot threads. Thanks!

The Master Rater

This was just phenomenal in so many ways. First off, you drew every single one of these things by yourself by hand. I can totally tell. It was just fantastic. Amazing sound, amazing picture, and just downright creepy. It was just so weird how you managed to come up with that monster. And how it plugged into the face of that kid. To be honest, while reading the description, I did wonder how this came from how the little guys at work have faces like power outlets. Words of advice, go see a psychiatrist buddy. You might be suffering from childhood trauma. Just kidding.

P.S. To answer the questions below about the kids, I think I can clarify on this a bit. The kid that flushed himself. Gone. He flushed himself, he obviously drowned. And that other kid didn't die from the generator explosion. He just got covered in blood, and through the wonders of cartoon effects, it disappeared. You think the artist wants to draw all that blood along with all the other stuff for the rest of the flash. I think not. So there were only 3.



unique

ive never seen anything like it original and amazing

@bobby0010 the reactor doesnt explode the creature does just covering the kid in blood ont killing him allowing him to escape with the other kid



funny

you are an awesome animator. but im confused. 3 kids fell down a hole, 2 escaped through the hole , 1 flushed himself, and 1 died from the generator explosion. there was only 3 kids not 4.



My favorite video of yours.

A lot darker than most of your videos. The begining was funny, and I liked how they were all kids. My only question is: what happened to the kid who flushed himself down the toilet?



really very good

one question though... where were the kids parents during all of this? o.0
