The hole film not, but a few scenes could be a little funny, yes.

I still love the way tha half the movie is pitch black, all except for someone lighting a cigar!

I also still love the 8mm style snuff-film voiceover and eerie musac.

If it suddenly broke into heavy rammstein, and all the charcters threw off their clothes and started throttling and whipping eachother whilst having sex....i wouldn't be in the slightest bit surprised.

Yeah, too much darkness.

I couldn't help laughing my head off when the voiceover said "obstacles have to be...obliterated!" The "obliterated" sounded like William Hung.

Dont put rolling credits on a trailer. Also, thats one of the worst lightsaber "effect" models you could have picked. Your camera quality looks good tho, except for the whole minute staring at some1 light a cigar in the dark. One more tip... i would ditch the v.o....

Hmm...that was creepy in a weird, unpleasant way. Also extremely funny.

The credit took up the majority of the trailer. i dont prefer downloading an extra 10 megs of credits. considering that ADV can do, that lightsaber looks pretty damn bad.


A connection? hands of darkness and hands of fate?

Its was ok. The music was not my favorite. I liked the costumes. I thought some clips were very long and could have been quicker.

The last scene at the end is a keyscene. Thats the reason because it is so long
