Wow -- that was really impressive. Don't think I've ever seen a better Halloween-time horror! I spotted many influences, but they were all bound together in a reassuringly dark vision. Well done!

That was beautifully done! Besides the animation, I really love the music and sound design. It's so atmospheric.

Because the film is literally so dark, at first I had trouble seeing all of it clearly on my screen with any room reflection, so turned out the lights out. Wow! That's the way it MUST be watched. :shock:

Congratulations! That's great work João.

Hey guys,

thank you for the compliments. It was 7 months of hard work, with only 3 people working on the entire animation. It was a very fun experiment.

Excellent artwork, excellent shot POV, excellent mood set up, excellent scene transition, excellent technique, excellent music editing choice.....my only critique was that it could have been done in 8 minutes rather than 18 plus. The extra time did not build the tension but rather made the viewer accustomed to it.

Great work overall

A bit too long, maybe for the story it tells, but AMAZING under every aspect.

Congratulations!!

This is superb! I love the design, the lighting, suspense and storytelling. I did not find it too long, on the contrary I enjoyed every minute of this nightmare!

Finally able to watch this, after fixing up my flash settings. I think this is what they normally call a tour de force. I'd love to see something like this style for a James Bond opening credit. You managed to keep me watching to the end, and you kept piling on the surprises, I don't think there's any room for improvement.

This is really well made. The way the character's joints are very interesting, and I like it! Art style and the color scheme is on point too. Nice work!!
