Definatly your best one so far. It seemed that this had alot more thought process involved in the makeing of the film. I dont get the basement scene though. What was that effect you were trying to get across. My best guess was a night vision type effect. Anyways great job, they are getting better. Oh and you need a tripod.

Wow, a horror movie aye?
I like the whole development here -- you know.
We have that classic spy movie -- The Agent
We have that classic shoot em up action movie -- The Project
We now have this classic horror movie -- The Stalker

Hurray.

The "negative" or "inverted color" effect was kind of misplaced.
And I can't figure why the guy went down to the basement.

Can the stalker die? Everyone was shooting him...
And why didn't everyone just run away from the house?

hey come on be nice! its a classic horror movie... nobody knows why the victims do stupid things... but thats what makes them good

...waiting to buffer...

it was pretty good... could have done with a non-halloween musical score.
liked the end. the shots could have had better angles and stuff not having so much light coming into the lens that it darkens everything else... you know? and most cameras have nightvision on them... but the inverted thing was weird... overall: i gave it a 4... it would have been a 3 but thats the first decent horror movie i remember seeing on here.

well done.

Me thought it was good for your standard - but I noticed 2 errors:

1- I saw some guy pop his head round the corner at one point.

2- I see London, I see France, I see some guy's underpants.

Anyway, just for no reason I'll give you a 4, because now you are thinking properly about your movies, and planning.

Some of the older people can learn from this, you knew what you were shooting and why and then you edited it together in a smooth veiwable way. Much improved over your other stuff as Tarn said I expect we will see some very good stuff from you in the future. Keep up the good work.

sorry kids! But Brittany Murphy can act better than you guys did. Although the shots were decently done. The camera was a little too shakey a few more snapping movements would have put it right in the category with THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.

Anywayz the main problem was the acting. Work on that. And you could get another star from me in the furture.


PEACE OUT
