Film Description
From the creator of "the Volunteer" and "Dawn With the Devil!" This is a call you can't afford to miss. New special effects, full VO, custom art, custom sounds, custom music by PhantomRaul (Daniel Tidwell) used with permission. Previously the audio did not synch up, so I spent one week using a stopwatch to re-edit the soundtrack (for some reason, the only sound I could not remove was the explosion, which still can be heard in the subway scene).

This film was the 1st Place winner in "the Plague Contest" sponsored by Eric Stones Art Studio and the_God_of_Plague.

DISSECTION: This film is a satire on modern man's (and woman's) over-reliance upon others (and technology)--and a lack of faith in one's own strengths.

Of course I love this film...Why?... Intelligent, hilarious dialogue inside of a creepy, well though-out storyline. Splice in some great edits and impressive modifications and you've got yourself a Five Star ***** Movie that is destined to be a chart climber. Teriffic characters and char. development and a perfect length. Great VO work that was clear and easy to understand/ right on time. Outstanding film Josephkw! TMO could use a few more films like this. From YOU?? = Keep up the frightening hilarious work! Love it.

Another masterpiece of unique and brilliant comedy from Josephkw, who just doesn't know how to make a bad movie!
Timing and editing are immaculate, visuals and VOs are incredible and the style is fresh and innovative...particularly the fight scene, which is like no other fight scene here on TMO.
Top notch.

MoMc review~!

originality--5
funniness--4
plot--5
editing--5
overall effect--5
overall score-- 4.8

this obviously took a whole lot of work. i couldnt describe all the amazing things you did within this movie in my review, so i won't even try.
but i will say that this is one of the most original stories i've seen on TMO. you didnt need gorrillas or chickens to make a good comedy movie, you just wrote a really good script and executed it perfectly. the editing was superb, with some modding and a lot of scenes put together to form one big scene.
the only thing i took off for is that it seemed more like an action or horror movie, though it was still very funny. i just felt that there was space for a lot more funniness. but the jokes that were in it were hilarious.
i am glad i watched this movie. thank you.
great job!

Joseph, I loved this movie. Very creative and funny. I also saw the Warrington cut of Dawn with the Devil and liked that as well. Viewing a number of your movies, gives me a feel for your movie making style. Your voice work is excellent.

Also, thanks for your comments on my creativity as well. Unfortunately, I am not a professional comedian although I pnce flirted with the idea of doing some Open Mike. I think the Movies provides the best outlet for my ideas. Sorry I only have the one movie so far. I am still in recovery from making Crossfire Capers and getting reaquainted with my wife. I ran into some really bizarre post production problems and I was lucky to get the version I posted up before the deadline. I have a couple concepts floating around in my head that I intend to work on at a more relaxed pace. I may not be happy until I re-edit CC and make it come out the way I intended it to.

Have you been reading any of the Chrysler thread on the forums? Eveyone there is on edge. I am open for email and private messages on the forums. I also have my AIM listed. I will let you know when I get something new posted.

Editing : 3/3 - Great editing.
Dialogue : 3/3 - Clear and crisp. Excellent
Plot : 2/4 - Not much depth as far as plot goes, but it has what it needs to be an entertaining comedy.
Scene/Prop use : 3/3 - Good scene and prop use.
Entertainment : 5/5 - A very funny movie. Sure there wasn't much of a plot, but this is a movie that stands on it's own without much of a plot. Great job.
Music : 2/2 - Good music

Total : 18/20 - 5 stars - Excellent
seen on dulcilicious "Yummy Chart"

**** MoMc Comedy Review! ****

In the beginning, the movie felt like a Horror flick but the funniness kicked in when the touch-tone menus were heard and fight scenes ensued. Before the fight, you get the "Push-this/Push-that gag". It's not an original gag but it drives a person crazy if he has to hear that in the middle of an emergency. The fight felt like a step aerobics program or a square dance because the operator was handing out instructions to both the perpatrator and the old man. The Upgrade was a nice kick to it that allowed the old man to get the upper hand.

I really loved the Custom Music and Special effects. Really awesome stuff! The backdropped text near the end of the movie was a nice touch. Kind of makes it feel like a sarcastic advertisement. Speaking of which, the statistic on crime was a nice chuckle "since the Jurassic age". Classic. You also included Alien abductions. Cute!

The VOs were great and Unique and I liked your use of SFX.

On the flip side, I do wished it had a few more gags in this flicks ... an Axe joke would be nice as the perp was bashing through the door.

But overall, I found this movie to be great.

4.8

all the sound and VO to work in sync with the pictures, but you made it work
perfectly. Well done.

BWAH-HA-HA! Genius. Thanks for the lighter side of self-defense. I've already added the number to my cell phone. (Clearly, the creator is interested in creating clever, amusing movies while pushing the boundaries of the game's capabilities. Sir, you are blazing a trail that few of us can follow. Thank you.)

- tigereyes

the film was pretty good, the B/W 'effect' really took away, you should try to download the B/W sets and make-up from Ozman69 because using a screenshot doesn't cut it, doesn't make sense why a guy with an axe would get "shaken up" so easily, i'm giving you ***** because the satire was very comical, but it doesn't fit as a horror, the ending took alot away from the film, but overall the script was solid and the VO for the intruder was top notch

Life Studios Report:

An extremely amusing comedy horror action movie. The music and sound effect were very professional but more than all the recordings were very high class. Surprising end no doubt and good storyline for a comedy. A truly talented satire on "The Ring". Very good directing and acting.
Tips: There was a small lack of "funny or silly moments" that are often found in comedy. Not needed but could have worked good on the general comedy audience.
Overall: Brilliant movie, looking to more of this studio's work. Great job!

You put a lot of care and effort into this and paid plenty of attention to detail. The VOs were absolutely fantastic. It was intelligent, funny and dark all rolled into one. You used combined custom content with the game's resources extremely well.
