Apart from the ending, that was amazing. Your shots were fantastic, you had tons of different angles, low shots, a shot through the stair rails, a good close-up of your face etc. Very very good stuff.
The thing that let it down was the ending; it wasn't really satisfying. What would have worked was something like maybe an energy bolt comes out of the cupboard, sucks him in & then slams shut again. Cut to deathly quiet scenes of the house, with the same music. That would have worrked with the whole weird radio storyline..maybe there's a huge amount of energy in that house or something.
If the ending had been better I would have given this a 5 because it is just extremely well produced, with good music pacing, sound effects & shots (apart from a medium close-up of your facte which didn't frame too good, cutting off your neck or top of your head, can't remember). Still, it justifies a 3.
Try more 'serious' stuff, this is good sh*t man

Woah, these movies is usualy not so good, but you changed the history!
Great angles except that halfhead at the end.
Loved the camera at the begining, going over the remote controlls and you had some other really nice ones to.. altho the story seemed a bit wierd...
I thought there would be some radio problem, instead there is a ghost thing... You could have worked on that!
The titles were good! you could had added a little motion to them and they would have been even better. Music was scary and actully made me wee-wee ... Good Work!

Thats the kinda movie id like to see a bit more of, a little chiller movie.
It was well done, had some nice shots in there i liked the shot through the railings, was good.
I have done some short movies like this myself wasnt quite as well done as this, one of them involved b4s Zombie plugin, another wasnt to bad untill i ruined it with the ending, good job im gonna give you a 5!

I liked it. Much much better than the majority of all the other "It's just me and my camera" movies. Edits are well done, nice shots, and COVERAGE! Wheeee!!! Looks to me like you actually planned on editing this and got more shots than you needed, which is more than what some would do. By the way, that "half-head" angle at the end, when you first look over at the closet is oh so nice. Very reminiscent of a similar shot in Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind. Loved it. And the end didn't bother me, either. I can dig the weird stuff.

overall i liked it, and the thing that stuck out the most for me was the cinematography. My only real problem was it looked like you looked at the camera once or twice, but I could be mistaken. Also, i don't like it in movies when people have to hold up the extension cord to show that it's working without power. you have to assume that the audience would get that, and you should never dumb down anything. Also, the ending didn't bother me either. overall a pretty good movie

I am not sure what shot everyone is complaining about? All the shots at the end look quite intentional and very nice to me. The only thing I saw that I would have changed was the effect at the very end, you should have changed shirts before shooting that part, just to look different. Generally very good job. I am trying to think of reasons I shouldn't give this a 5 and I can't so a 5 from me!

I liked it a lot, though it struck me how much it resembled a short movie I made recently, it was basically the same thing, except it's that I'm woken up by what sounds by my alarm clock, and there is a close-up shot of it with my hand pressing the stop button with no effect too, but it ends up being the burglar alarm, and it ends abruptly like yours, with somethign attacking the main character, and I have a shot through the stair bars too. Creepy!
4 from me.

I emphasise, I liked the film a lot, see raving about it above. My reason for criticisng the ending was that it's very swift & I wasn't affected by it. It also looks like what it was, a shot against bluescreen with the transparency altered a bit.
To maybe make it more effective, how about applying a bit of a smoke/dust effect or something so it doesn't look so 2D?
That's just my opinion. But I love the other parts of it. I know I may seem harsh taking away 2 points because I think the ending wasn't so great, but I just felt - you know? Everything was so great before it I felt it was leading up to something better.
Again, keep these kind of things coming. Great work!

this is weird. No, i do not mean the movie, for i have not yet seen it. Whenever i try to open it, it messes up. I have downloaded the latest quicktime, yet it still wont open. I click on the play icon, and it gives me the cannot display page error. And when i try to download it by right-clicking and saving, it trys to open it, but then says something along the lines of, "cannot open information"... Any ideas on how to help?

I enjoyed it. The ending could've been expanded on so that the viewer would have a better idea of what was happening, but, overall, this was very well done. I'm looking forward to your next one.

Yeah. If the ghost or whatever jumped out and then they fought or something it would have been really lame. The end is great.

wow... this movie is sweet! i realy liked it how all the radios in the house were all skewed and messed up. The peacefull-yet-eirie music that added to the tension and gave the movie a very nice overall effect. The ghost of himself at the end gave you something to ponder over whether it meant something, or if there was just no one else to do the acting.
Definitly worth a 5 in my eyes.

Like most of the comments I think parts of this were nice. Music and pacing were good and I'm very impressed you managed to do this in an hour. However I felt that the ending was a bit lame - I would have gone very dark - and also there were three shots in a row of your chest which I'm sure is due to the fact you were doing this on your own. 3 from me.

My apolgies for not getting the chance to see this movie sooner.
Overall, I'm not into "scary moive" genre. However, the usage of your soundtrack and the sound effects really helped established the mood.
Considering you shot this in one hour, I think you're cinematography was excellent. Your use of angles was really good, particularly your use of low and canted angles to create the mood.
There was a shot where you turned around to look at your closet that I thought could have been better framed (I thought it showed a bit too much of the ceiling), however you did say you did everything yourself, so that might explain that issue. I think that almost everyone said this already, so my apolgies if the redundant response is annoying. The only reason why I noticed was that your other shots were really done well.
Lastly, keep making movies and submitting them. I think you have definite potential to make this a serious career, if you chose to do so.
