|An over worked Screenwriter is noticing some....ODD activities in his house. Is it his lack of sleep? Is it his scripts coming to life? Or is his house really haunted?|
PS. For best scare performance
1. WATCH IN THE DARK!
2. Turn speakers up loud!

Another very entertaining short flick...and very different in style to the more action-packed movies we've seen previously. Always good to see people able to adapt to different genres.

Yeah, I liked this one very much. Especially the Audiowork was good. Had some really scary moments.
Only letdown was the shakey camera. In places it was very good, in other places it was a bit off for my taste.
But definately a cool experiment!

This film altogether took me 3 nights to film. Most of It I did all by myself just me and my camera.

very good, i thought it was almost a waste of time to make a ameteur scary movie, but what you put together was very impressive.
it seems Stir of Echoes had some creative effect upon your movie
the only cheesy thing was the ghost in the hall, i found myself laughing at the voice, "join us".
Good luck on future projects

Acually the music came from Signs/ Scream 3/Sleepy Hollow.
SO yes you are correct!

I liked the whole feel of the movie. Looks like you have a good feel for horror type films. The only thing that needed work was the acting, when the roomate says "look, you dont have to raise your voice with me ect.." that line sounds like it should come from a parent, not a roomate. He also sounded like he stumbled his words around when he was talking about going to the club or something. My only suggestion is to run threw your lines many times. The more you do, the more believable it will be to the viewer. And now I sound like my theatre teacher from back in High school... haha. Anyways, cool film.
p.s. i liked that skeleton in the comp, pretty freaky

Camera work was good. i liked the different shots and angles. Good stuff when the guy opens the door and the view zooms backward ala evil dead. The film was quite funny. The acting had all the hallmarks of the b-movies i grew up with. When that ghost says 'your gonna die' I almost fell off my chair in laughter! Pure cheese! I loved that part. Lets have a sequel.

I'm a bit reluctant to comment on this, for fear of a backlash.
I'VE GIVEN IT 4,
The main thing I didn't like was the camerawork, very wobberly and not enough diffferent angles ( in my view )
But the reason I gave it 4 was because of the acting, I'm very impressed by those guys, I would suggest (if you haven't already ) get yourselves into a drama school, you could go far.

Well B4 I am greatful for your honest vote! And I think it's big of you to give me such a huge compliment. Becuase if you didn't already know, that was ME who starred in the film as the writer. And I thank you for liking my acting skills.

Great acting Matt. nice story, pretty good use of plugins, although it would be frickin cool if the statue would have done something instead. I give it a 4, it worth it.

I can't comment on the movie because I can't download it, but it sounds similar to a film I've just been involved in the first third of which I've submitted here ...
I look forward to seeing it when I figure out how.

hmmm. I find it odd that you can't download it. But I hope you figure out how to fix the problem.
