This one is best with your volume up. The words to the narration are below:

My dear father died in a faraway war
Left Mother and I quite without hope
We used our last pennies to leave our fine city
And away to a house on a farm.
And on this farm, on the thorniest edge
Stood an ash tree as old as the earth
With branches so gnarled and twisted and black
That my every bone cried out to climb
"But no! Oh no!" said our funny old neighbor
Wringing her hands like two rags
"Don't you go near it, young Miss Eliza
For her roots are bad all the way down."
I thought it silly but did as she told
Until Mother went missing one eve
So sad had she been that I feared the worst
And went down to the old ash tree
And now here I stand but here there is nothing
Naught but a flowering weed
But the breeze, I could swear, carries upon it
The scent of my mother's perfume
Yes, the wind, I declare, does carry upon it
The scent of my mother's perfume

kk, I was waiting for this to load, and read manga while i waited, it was also like 12:00 when I watched it, and when the whispering started on it's own...

Freaky! and awesome, wish you'd done more with the animation tho

Loved it

@scarykid you're a moron. You got the creepy feeling and you achieved it in a way that for me is truly beautiful


Rated 5 / 5 stars

No offence

Looked at all your flash submissions, loved'em, and i gotta say that you're mentally sick.
But that's what art is all about, eh?


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Too predictable

To be blatantly honest, this wasn't very effective at being creepy. I could tell from the very thumbnail and the name that the tree was going to kill someone, and from there on out watching this it wasn't hard to predict what was going to happen next. Not to mention that the voice acting makes the whole film feel like it's trying too hard to be scary.The story wasn't very interesting to being with either, I mean a tree that kills people, hasn't this been done before a million times? Also, the typical black and white film was very boring and again done before.

You get a 6 because it was a very mediocre flash, nothing special.
