Blown away, Arginnon, blown away. That was legitimately creepy. Great work, and best of luck in the contest!

Whoa....um, ok.

After fond memories of "The Yellow Brick Horse" I was certainly not expecting...this level of seriousness.

It's incredibly well made on a technical level. No doubt about that. The cinematography, scoring, animation, set, and so on are all top-notch. The only slip in quality is the knife at 0:40, but that's easily forgivable.

I loved the dolly zoom at 0:32; in fact, all the camera movements were wonderful.

As I hinted before, up until the actual knife shot, I figured a swift twist would turn things into a funny, lighthearted film where this was all a mistake, or joke or something. Because of that preconception, the film was jarring the first time through. (Perhaps the release date, nearly a month after Halloween didn't help.) However, after watching it again, a little more aware this time, I do appreciate what you've done here.

I think it's a strong film to introduce yourself with here on Newgrounds.
Good job!

Arginnon responds:

Thank you! This means a lot, coming from you.

This is actually going to be the opening scene of a longer brickfilm, which will be a crossover of two franchises with very different tone and style. I set myself the challange to try and bring those two together, without extenuating either one. So this is the reason for the darkness and seriousness of this scene: this opening clip is purely Halloween, so I thought it should be done in the most horror-esque way.

Since it's going to be mixed with a more light-hearted franchise, I hope the final movie will be closer to my usual style.
