You should probably see psychiatrists. Do your parents fight a lot? I'm going to call social services just in case.

Despite the completely uneccessary violence, the punches did seem to connect well, although made quite a loud noise for a child's punch. The glass also shattered far too slowly, and although the poor compression coincidentally made it seem more 'raw' that you probably intended, it also made the glass shattering look worse as i couldn't tell what was hapenning (besides the comedy glass-breaking sound effect).

Is this THE Jack Pearce who made the mystery and devil may cry!!! Woah! Im expecting lots of cursing in these 17 seconds adn some random glass breakage. Ill check when it downloads.

Edit: You are one disturbed kid. And I guessed the glass breakage smile

Go get some help if you think its funny running in front of a camera and smackiing a kid, making them bleed to death.

Err...girl? He said his brother.

Well, to be honest, this wasn't good at all. Nor was it funny. But I bet you're thinking it is funny. That's fine, but understand that people acting stupid is only funny to the people who were the ones acting stupid, otherwise it's just stupid. So expect bad reviews.

Try creating a short movie with some sort of a plot, many camera shots, and no swearing. You might get somewhere with something like that.

i think that when people realize that this was made by the same filmmaker of The Mystery fame it will get allot of flak. Though I don't think that this was great, it was better than i expected. It was a little twisted, but I can see what you were trying to do. The violence almost looked real, minus some cheesy blood, but thats what you get with alam. Much better than your last two entries, but still only 2 star material for me.

EDIT Brettsta- Nice call on the glass smile

Erm............


I was going to say something very nasty about this but ive decided not to, im gonna be harsh....


What's the concept??? Ok lets wack a newsreporter whos ment to be in a garden centre??? You could of actually shown the reason of why this person got beaten up unless you have no brain in your head and you need to see someone for your help as xcession has said...


Pointless violance and overall a waste of my time hearing 3 year olds with high pitch voices screaming in my ears....
