Film Description
"Eveything eventually breaks"

My first movie, done in the actual game, I tried to make a horror film, but more i n the sense of creepy, rather then scary.

It's dark, and I'd give it an R rating for some salty language and violence. Anyway, enjoy, and please, let me know what you think!

EDIT-
The Subtitles may seem a bit fast, and I appolgise for that, but there was a lot of dialoge to fit, and not much room to fit it, so I had to overlap peices, and still make them work. Again, I appolgise ^_^;

I would add voices, but I couldn't do a female voice if my life depended on it..still, I'm considering it XD

ANOTHER EDIT XD-

I hadn't planned on this, but I will be remaking this film, with dialoge, and another 10 minutes or so, to explain more, but I was going for a very "9th Gate" feel. Creepy, but on the dialoges half, not the action of the movie. I'll explain what happened before the film, and afterwards, the setup here, will lead into my feature length Silent Hill movie.

Aside from that, thanks for the reviews everyone!

That was superb! I was highly impressed with the creepy dialogue. First time I've seen the basement used to good effect.

Well done.

It was good even if I could not follow the whole movie in what it was actually about. I got the idea but it was lacking in a good plot which I would of given a much higher rating. Good movie let down just a little. Look forward to seeing more of your movies in the future.

Very nicely done.

As stated, the subtitles were fast, but I was able to keep up for the most part.

Very nice pilot to a series of films, also.

One thing I did not like was the fast cutting once everyone was in the basement, it led to some slight confusion as the scenes progressed.

Also, the costumes seem out of place. Just a tad though.

Good work, keep at it.

Not bad. You have created another of those horror movies where people dont know whats realy happening but we know enough to be entertained. I like the way you used the set and your characters.

For a 2 minute film it felt like an hour of stuff, tightly packed. The dialogue was full of story, as if you had a big story and cut it down to this, I really like how you give away the information, the characters almost tell the story. It was a very good first movie, and I see that your dialogue goes very fast.

That was a really great movie and I would give it 5 stars if it wasn't for the fast subtitles and bad lighting. Good job with mostly everything in the movie outside of those two realms.

Good concept, psycho [bad-word!] on a rampage for God... Cuts were a bit fast though, lost a bit in translation because of that.

I actually really enjoyed that. I wasn't sure it was worth four stars, but I figured you made it 'in game' and it's a lot better than other movies on this site.

Very interesting, although a bit rushed. I'd love to see how you remake the film and what improvements you can bring to the table.

Also, if you are interested, check out my film at:

It's kind of a psychological thriller, and you may find its right up your alley. Rate it and let me know what you think. And let me know when your new one comes out!

Neat! It was actually creepy as you said. Also, I don't mind fast subtitles, I can read pretty fast. Good job, liked the story.

This movie has potential, man! I can't wait to see how you expand on the storyline. It's creepy, but entertaining. Thanks. When you want to take a break from production, take a moment to review my films. Best of success to you!

Swell - really swell...good dialog - First time I really managed to follow the subtitles on this site. Even if they where quite rapid. Good work. Bookmarked you.

Agree with Codyd22, and posted it on message board about this movie. Gotta Speed read to follow what is going on.

I think you have the lighting down. What a difference a couple of slider settings can make. I don't know if I would use that stupid mumbling sound effects they include in the game... but then again, what are the alternatives...

Voted 5 just to battle the ignorant 1-star voter who apperently wanted to just be a jerk.

In reality I'd give it a 4, the movie was very good, and interesting... I think you did a very good job with the cutting tools to make the scene flow more, very creative. Sub titles were indeed a bit too fast, I'm sure you've learned your mistakes... but I'm not going to dock you 3 or 4 stars just because I had to read quickly ;)

Good job Nic, this was one of the best movies I've seen so far.

Though you pulled off your idea pretty well, and had a good feel to it. Look forward to seeing more in the future.

Assaults the viewers.

A good idea, and well produced. As has been said, it's promising. I hope that things are explained a little more in your next part. I would agree that the subtitles move a bit quick (made the same mistake myself!), which makes it a little difficult to follow. But all in all, very intriguing.

I would call this promising but incomplete by per se. Hopefully, that remake you plan will make of this film something really great: 10 extra minutes explaining more, fix many things.

that was a creeeepy movie Nico!
I have to say you succeeded in making a psycholocial horror movie.
Your choice of custome, and very descriptive subtitles have amplified this movie's atmosphere greatly.

Very nicely done. ^_^, maybe later on you can release a new version when your main game goes into year 2000? :D

I have no idea what i have just watched. Shame, because i'm sure a lot of thought went into the script / plot.

Now that was creepifying. No idea what was going on, but I imagine that's the point.

i know you apologized, but for non - english speaking people the dialogue was damn way to fast.

and for a 1933 horror movie, the main actor is tattoed? 1933.. i dont think so...

Very nicely done for an first in-game effort! Despite not really following it too closely, I did enjoy it! I saw where you mentioned in your description that the subs were too fast. I'm finding that even if i slow them down in post production to a manageable level they seem to speed up in uploaded playback. :( Hope that gets fixed if it's a bug. Overall a great job to begin. I look forward to a lot more from you!

P...

Very very creepy. i have to agree on the fast subtitles though. fix some mistakes and im sure next time you'll get a 5

very good show. I think that 'she' should have looked a bit creepier, but before I saw her, I was creeped.

No movie on this site has given me that feeling of suspense except for you. Good job.

Good to hear you will be doing an extended version. This wasn't creepy enough and I'm sure you know that's because it was too fast. Not just the titles but the whole movie. Needed some atmospheric silence in there, slow steady advances.. I look forward to seeing the remake and future episodes :)

Fast subtitles. This made the story even more complicating.

Posted on November 17, 2005
- Ace_24

Certainly creepy, If you can flesh out the story than this movie will definatly get a higher rating.

I couldn't make out what was happening at times, & also the subtitles went to quickly. Besides those weaknesses, the film worked well, & is probably the only horror type film that is realistic & not a sort of spoof.

For some abnormal reason I can follow the movie. But the subtitles WERE a little too fast. Anyway - expand it more, i think - fifth star.

Loved what you did with one set...I can tell you've been writting dialogue sceens before this, great characters, great plot.

Yeah that was kinda creepy. Seems like there should be a part 2. Looking forward to it if there is.

This is my first review of a film, and i thought it was pretty good. Apart from the text being too quick, it set out what it was meant to do.

a good effort with excellent sequences just let down by the rapid subtitles so i could get into the plot :(

Posted on November 12, 2005
- BitterJeweler

Nice sequences, the movie looks good. Again, the subtitles were to fast. Subtitles are often a problem because it takes away from the "Film", and then you have to watch it twice. But keep up the good work!

Subtitles were a bit fast I agree with someone else here and although i'm
not into this genre of film much I must say this is a very good attempt for
making a movie while not fully being used to the game yet...If this would have had lipsync and voiceovers it would have been worth a four stars rate...I'll give it a fair, I hope in my opinion three stars rate...Keep up the good work!! :D
