This was originally for Halloween of last year but never got around to finish it. I decided to end it differently from what I had planned. It's my first animation that isn't based on other people's characters.

The intro is simple as I want people to focus on the movie itself.

I hope you enjoy it and I will be looking forward to any feedback, both positive and negative.

Enjoy :)

Edit 1 - I switched the loader to one with a play button so it doesn't loop.

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Way too predictable

I don't think there's a single thing in this movie that I didn't know was gonna happen... And even if you leave that behind, the whole thing isn't executed too well.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

cool enough

People seem to think the title gives it away, but I would say the twist is in the way he collects the blood, more so then the fact that he paints with it.

I see the style was, eh for lack of a better word, bland. Like how there were no faces. It's cool how it reflects the fact that you never see the painter at all, yet if there are no faces, the area should be a little more stylized or something to take it's place.

I noticed how the time went back a minute in the ending in the kitchen ;) Guess you just missed that lol But really, interesting build up, how the viewer kinda saw time ticking by the minute.

Very Good

This is a very good horror movie with the blood and all that. I was surprised when the spike killed the girl and then another one came. But the thing I don't get is that didn't the girl ever notices the chair and doesn't she ever looks at the floor?Weird... And this is a good flash.

Well Done

That was really good. The tension was great and the story was good. I love this animation, please keep animating


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


The title sort of gave it away, but the build up of tension and suspense was really well done. Even though you sort of expect that the flash is going to be about someone like Sweeny Todd or something, I think the main idea was the supense build up, and it worked well. The animation could be worked on a bit more, but it is still a very good flash for this type of "thriller, halloween, etc." genre.

I think the scream at the end of the flash was unecessary. I mean, the painter killed the other girl with hardly a sound, and I'm presuming that since the painter has been doing this often, he would have gotten rid of the bodies before the next girl came, or otherwise why would the girl be posing so calmly for the painter if they hadn't seen the bloody corpses? Or has the painter hypnotised his victims after they scream...=P

Oh well, I guess it is open to speculation...otherwise a top job for this kind of thing. My only real criticism is to improve your animation. Nice job =)
