Yeah, they scared the S*** out of me when I was a kid with the way they looked and screamed, hell, they still creep me out (but not as bad as back then). I used to try to get my brother to go in the graveyard to get the sun song and every other Redead's so that I wouldn't have to... *shivers at the memory*...
Anyway, awesome flash, awesome story, and you managed to bring back some of my previous memories on those lanky brown guys (but in a good way... I think... :) )
Keep up the good work!
