Notes: I know all the sound is probably off, but there was nothing I could do about it. I've been exporting this movie for the past three weeks and had no good copy to show of it. This is the best of the bundle. Enjoy!

Review Replies: Thank you all for your reviews. I'm pretty sure, if I change out the music today and get a good export, that this version will be gone by tonight. I've taken all the criticisms into consideration.

Also, it hadn't even occurred to me to coincidences that this movie had with some real movies when I was making it. It wasn't until editing that I realized how close this movie was to some others.

Highly entertaining..Great storyline.
Orginality 9/10 Fresh on the tmo scene.
Story/Plot 10/10 Loved this body of work.
Dialogue 10/10 Very nice work and great delivery
Editing 4/10 While your use of fades and quick camera movements made the movie more frightening, the consistant jumps by the actors around the screen was very distracting. Like the car scene...it looked like they jumped out of the car to do some face close up then back in hehe. And then in the bedroom a couple times this happened. We have our limitions in the game..I know that..but we gotta find the ways around them. And ya the sync thing was distracting. Try making sure you save one last time in pp then uploading with the vtech button on...usually causes the time in the upper left hand corner to run more fluidly helping sound syncs. (and make sure your not running anything else on your pc)
"wow factor" 9/10 I loved the story and cant wait for more.

Total 42/50 84% 4 Stars Stong Point: Awesome Story and Amazing VO delivery.

You are a great movie maker. I almost forgot it was made with the movies. Very well done. It got more confusing as it went along in a good way, giving the story more depth. You wouldn't think the movies could make something scary but you have. Well done. (Sound glitches were annoying but you don't lose a star for that. It's not your fault!)

A lot of very good stuff here, Jack. You really have deepened your story and character skills. I was hooked from the start - an excellent opening. The sound slippage was, like you said, kind of bad, and that kept throwing me off the story (not because I was dwelling on the problem, but that the slippage actually causes some story confusion). The early direction and editing was very solid. Musical touches were smart and really added to the mood. So - this felt like a five star flick that was kind of choked by some unfortunate glitches. Anyway - I was glued to my seat, really enjoyed it, and will definitely be ready for Night 2.

Intriguing plot and excellent use of horror shots and backdrops. Unfortunate sound glitches midway through. You have a unique directing style, and I look forward to seeing more of your movies.

I thought the sound effects were superb, really quite chilling & the story was fairly original (Room 247 the shining?) but the editing could have been better. Although I still knew what was happening it did affect the flow of the story but I still look forward to Night Two!

Great beginning of the series, with good and original ideas and remarcable characters, but... I know is hard work with TM, but you need to be more accurated editing: some scenes are wrong cutted, or don't appropiate the pass to some scenes to the other... making the movie a little dizzi. And the sound (music and VO), sometimes was superb, but another isn't good enough... Try to arrange this issues in the next episode :)

great plot and VO's, the only thing that ruins it a little bit were the sound glitches, but i'm up to see the 2. part
