Interesting film. Your use of black & white was a good touch. This maybe strange...but I thought the film needed to be a little longer to explain why it was happening. Your sound effects could have been better (thought they were a little too soft especially in the fight scenes). This was a good film that kept my attention. Nicely done. A well earned 5.

yeah it was uploaded once before but got taken down once the link failed so i re-submitted it to the cinema.

Michael Suzor - Yeah i originally had this great backstory and stuff but in order to get it made i cut it into a ten minute film. I was meaning to right a longer script but then 28 Days Later came along and i like it so much that i thought i'd leave this story alone for a while and move onto other stories. I agree the sounds were crap but i didn't have access to the internet at the time of post-production so i had to make the sounds myself. Glad u like the film

not bad, not bad. like most people have already said, it's a little dark, with a few sound problems.

so, are they vampires? or something else?

SWEET GUN!! I know Two_gunned saint will appreciate this one! a beretta M93R II. John Woo fans will recognize it as the gun that Deakins used at the end of the movie, gun enthusiasts will recognize it as a full auto pistol when the firing mode selector/mini foregrip is in the down position, and a standard, yet powerful single shot semi-auto when it's up. complete with extended magazine, and wood finish handle. a truly beautiful weapon.

that can't be a real beretta, so it must be an airsoft gun, I don't think that they make the M93R II in a spring gun, which means that it must be a gas gun, which makes me wonder why y'all didn't have any closeups of the slide blowback action?

is it gas, or spring? if it's spring, can you see if they have anymore? if you could pick one up and sent it to me, that would rock! I'd make it worth your while. . .

the gas gun is what I'd prefer to have, but it's 250 to 300 bucks, and while money may not be hard for me, I still can't justify laying out that kind of money for a single prop, not just yet, anyway. . .

Good work. Very well made. Could have done with some developement.

That M93R was cool. It's also used in "Broken Arrow", "Desperado" and the hi-octane, hyperballistic action film entitled "Sunset in a Beretta's Eye."

I like what I saw. Nice amounts of blood as well. Well done. a 4.

Whoo hoo! I've been promising greyo I'd review this film, and I've finally gotten around to it smile. I really liked the editing in this, it was very unique and 'film like'. And we've had a debate about the dialouge, and I still say it's fine how it is biggrin. My only gripes are that I think the fight scenes should of been in fast motion. I think it would of really held up the pace of it if you did. And is that music an original score or did you just find that somewhere? Great *original* movie. 4 Stars. cool

I enjoyed your movie I thought it had a good feeling to it. Although I was confused by the black and white scenes at first. Now of course I was watching this at work so I didn get sidetracked. It was a little dark like everyone said but of course it could be my monitor. I enjoyed it. Finally one of the horror movies that I have seen on here that has actualy blood in it. Always good to see real special effects once in awhile. Now I don't know if people from before are still reading this but I have found two airsof gun websites that have some pretty good stuff in them you should check them out.
http://www.1899airsoftguns.com/
http://replicaweaponry.com/index.html
Now the second one has blank guns as well if you wanted a more authentic sound. Either site is very well priced and some nice items.
