|Three innocent kids sit at home, alone, when the devil sends a gift from hell that posseses Charlie. Their fate lies in the hands of the devil.|
Thanks to er-no for cropping off some blackness at the end and hosting it.

Okay - here goes.
Good things -
Cinematography: some very interesting shots.
Editing: Interesting editing with the scary parts being very good.
Music: really cool short bursts during scary parts.
Story: Interesting story that sort of draws you in.
Bad things -
Acting: It sucked. No offense or anything, but it did. "Charlie" actually looked into the camera when he was getting up from the couch.
Music: Sometimes didn't fit
Story: Didn't make much sense at some parts. Why were they sleeping? Why were they just sitting there doing nothing? Why did that girl call?
Sound design: I had to turn up the volume so loud to hear the dialouge that the music and sound effects broke my ear drums.
It was alright - 3/5

Ok, the girl was somewhere and needed to come home, that was self explainitory. Some of the sound effects were supposed to be loud, to startle you. I probably should have made it more clear they were watching tv, even though I had a remote, maybe I should have had some tv noise or something. But thanks for the suggestions. Oh, and as for Charlie looking into the camera, he didn't... But again, thanks for suggestions.

I think this is your best movie to date. I have to admit, I haven't been a fan of your first three films, but this movie proves that you are evolving as a filmmaker and are on the way to making great shorts.
Some of the acting was good, some of it was bad, and you made really good use of music in this, especially in the credits, as it basically set in stone the movie's mood. There were some continuity errors. In the end, I think Charlie's face should have been more messed up than any other person's for the last little second right there. Also, I think if you hadn't brung back the "stabby" music in the end it would have been way more intense and eerie. Oh yeah, and when charlie goes in the bathroom, the twist on the door seemed out of place.

Thanks for the comments Waser. I have only had 2 other films on here, and one was a test though. The other one you are thinking of was my frieds movie that he wanted put on the net. It was so crappy I deleted it.

I couldnt resist! I'm so naughty
But I do have a question about the movie though. When the peole have their faces all messed up, where did you get the images you used?

Hey I'm the one that did those scenes!
Would have been better using a mask or something than an image though.
Anywho, ditto what Waser said.

It wasn't self explanitory because I didn't get it. Why would she be asking her brother when to come home when he seemed to not care?
Oh, and as for Charlie looking into the camera, he didn't...
he looked like he was, but he was definately smirking a bit.
Don't get me wrong, I liked this, Im just trying to understand the story. Sometimes things that you think are crystal clear don't make any sense at all to the audience. Work out the audio issue. Another part of the reason I couldn't understand the story was that I had to turn it down for the effects (phone ringing etc.). Next time, fix that, and everything else mentioned, and it'll be just fine.

Ok, good pointer though, I will try and nail the story in my next big movie so even my dog can understand it. It wont be simple, but very understandable.

It was oddly thrilling. It made me jump a few times because of the music and then certain sounds just popped out of nowhere. Neat flick.

Charlie was pretty good, I liked how everybody's faces morphed when they looked Charlie in the eye.

Woah, good idea, I never meant for that, and all of my friends asked how the people died, I said it's a mystery. That will be my response now.

I liked this film. You did a great job creating suspense and actually startled me once. Everyone in bare feet was a nice touch.
