i felt this movie was exceptionally well made. The editing, the voice overs and the music all fitted the theme perfectly.

In my opinion this movie is more than just a horror story. It also tackles the tough issue of depression. I myself have been around a lot of people with depression, because of the fact i lived in a lodge for people with cancer for a long time. Anyway, it is just as horrifying having depression, and you took this issue on very well.

I read a previous review that said you needed to tell us why he was depressed, well to me you didnt need to, because it should've been obvious if we pay attention.

Well done, a very good movie!

Seriously some freaky stuff, here :) Story was really good, and the music really helped increase the tension in the movie. Also noticed there was quite a bit of work done with the sound effects, which I didn't notice at first because it was done so seamlessly -- wasn't until I thought to myself "The game doesn't do that." that I realised what you'd done.

Nice voicework too, though I was never entirely sure if the deeper voice was saying 'Sever' or not. An instant horror classic, nonetheless.

Holy crap! Thank you for ending the series about this animalguy and making now such a great horror movie. :D

It was strange and shocking, well, maybe not so shocking, but yeah it was shocking with all those fast cuts. They kicked my ass and were done great. Even you used no backdrops effects, this movie definitly shows a lot of effort.
And the effort you don't only see in the editing, no, you see it too in the story. It was a strange story, through and through. I still didn't get it at the ending and I had to watch again, and than, it made me say "aha!". Well, at least I think I got it.
The VOs were great. I really enjoyed when this guy was talking and than the bad guy...uhuhuh! I was at the beginning a bit disappointed about the music, because it was from the game I think, but than the music got custom and the custom music fitted into the movie quiet well.
Oh and one more word to the Story. It was holy original, havn't seen yet something on TMO. I guess you got this movie idea and than took it into the game, without changing something on the idea. I guess so and I like that. So I think you know the game so good, that you can say "Ok, I have a movie idea and I know excatly which scenes I will take", and that shows in the movie.

Overall: How can Movie with 57 ratings be on the top? It's from Duxy, one of the greatest reviewer all time on TMO and a great movie from a great moviemaker deserves a great review xD. The movie definitley deserves to be so high, as it was just great to watch and very, very entertaining. Keep up the great work!!

I really enjoyed see this in better quality than the version i saw previously.. this movie had the right atmosphere to set the mood. Which is key in a horror movie.

Visually, this is a spectacular from the flashing white screens to the dead world backdrops to the freeze frames.... very nice to watch

The lighting, effects, music, and images meshed and really worked well....

Nice Work my friend and congrats on the hot pick.... more success to you...

BRAVO

Duxy, you have created a horror masterpiece here. A zombie film with style and fueled by sheer terror. The flashing and nightmarish effects you involved in this movie are perfect and add to the atmosphere even more. The editing is fantastic, and rolls perfectly from one scene to the next.

My only complaint is of course the sound bug, which became slightly annoying at the end, but this is not your fault. Movies should not be voted down because of this issue.

Ok, the CONXROXS SHASHNAZZLE bit -
MUSIC/SFX - 10/10 - freaky, spine-tingling SFX and professional music to match.
STORY - 10/10 - fantastic horror elements mixed with action to create a gripping tale.
CHARACTERS - 10/10 - you really felt for the character who was going through this terrible ordeal.
VO's/SUBS - 8/10 - for me some of the acting was slightly wooden, but good nevertheless.
WOW! FACTOR - 10/10 - I was blown away at the editing and creepyness of this movie. Well done.

CONCLUSION - 48/50 - 96% - this movie is a must see - the best horror movie ever on TMO! Easily beats Fear! A chilling, nightmarish masterpiece that sucks you in... winner of a CONXROXS SHASHNAZZLE PRIZE!!!

That was a fantastic mind trip WELL DONE!

I could go on about the fantastic use of camera and editing, I could go on about my great music and voice overs, or even the great backdrops but HEY you know it's good, very good.

One of the best mind mess movies I have seen on TMO.

A very different movie with execellent editing of scenes. Seems to take place mostly within the main characters deseased mind as he grapples with his own insecurity. But hidden within this movie is a message that you are the master of your own destiny. (IMHO). 5 stars.

STORY - Story and the plot are interesting, but main character's behaviour on the city street was strange. Man would except more surprize. (1 star)
DUB + SUB - Dubbing is on a high grade. Only the policeman could talk up. In some places you have a feeling that the dubber of main character could go deeper in his role and don't say everything so monotone. (1 star)
MUSIC - The music is very good. Only a track in the city is too much out. Something better could be choiced there. (4/5 star)
DIRECTOR - Master on a right place. This movie has super cut, perfect use of effects and we can call it almost realistic. Director missed only in one place - in the hell (or what it was) where the main character is writhing at a fear. This sceene is good for BW films where it is needed to emphasize actors emotions by the picture. In modern films it looks strange, especially when character is in next scene calm as an ice. (1 star)
INGREDIENCES - In the end is the film getting little bit boring and it attracts only by a hope of solution of whole thing. (4/5 star)

OVERAL - This is one of few pearls which could be found among the flood of movies. Horror as it should be. Even if you're hunting mistakes, you'll rarely see any. Maybe little bit boring in the end, but the rest is really professional. If you don't like horrors, watch this to see at least how to use effects and cut. Many people could learn from it.
STAR RATING: 4.6

after viewing that.. i will admit: it has everything a really great movie should have: sets, good VOs, and all that good stuff but it lacks one thing: developement.. why is the main person in a state of sadness? the characterization is not developed, and without those key elements, this movie lacks off terribly.. you must open up..

Brilliant editing! Excellent job with cuts and scene changes. That was the best part of the movie. The music was good, but sometimes felt out of place. The music choices could have fit the scenes a bit better. Overall a good story. But at the end I kind of felt that it didn't really lead anywhere. We had already seen what happened and I was hoping for a bit more explanation. But despite that, this was still a very good, very creepy movie. Excellent work!

Decideded to return the would-be favour (If i had any movies!) by reviewing one of yours with my own patantented style (hatemail sent to the usual address ;) )

How smart is it?:8/10: I liked this story alot! It was very original and had quality to it, that i would have preffered to get to know the main guy more but other than that brilliant.

What kind of squeak does it make?: 8/10: The zombie talking was very effective as was the music humming away in the backround.

How well groomed was it?: 10/10: The edditing was superb with the people changing into zombies and the guy jumping off the roof and it pausing and changing colour, all genius and very well put together.

The Acorn Effect:7/10: I enjoyed this emensely, especially the flash backs (I realised that they were flashbacks! Do i win a prize? ;) ) The custom backdrops were excellent as was the dream sequence. A very good film!

Would i mate with this?: Again and again! 33/40 As is always the case the 5 mark rating is scraped by a couple of marks! This is a very well put together film with excellent imaginative script, good VOs and custom backdrops and music all thrown in a pot untill it was almost unrecognisable! Brilliant film, wins the Golden Acorn!

Hands down the best horror movie on TMO till this point, which is saying alot because good horror movies are very hard to come by because of current game limitations. Good use of VO and scenes. The only downside I see to this movie is story is kinda hard to follow, and if you aren't simi intelligent then it can be confussing, but great job with limitations of the game. Keep up good work.

Well, great VO's and sets but I felt the story came from nowhere. There was no build in character, in the lead roles case. Why was he angry, why was he depressed? So many unanswered questions, which makes this film a dissapointment, 3 stars for the sheer brilliance in VO's and sets. Please rate my films :)

Well the story was abit vague in places but it was still good and I liked the dream sequence...It had a good ending and it was full of suspense which the music carried through as the film progressed. Altogether a good movie but at moments it could be confusing which lost it a star!

Admittedly what is here is nothing particularly origonal, and I would have liked a move decisive ending, but it was spectacularly done, and had just the right number of origonal touches to stand it out from all the other fast cut movies on the site.

-A Dark and Makrim review:
With mascot Krimmy


*****5Stars


From Dark himself:
This was a masterpiece of horror deserves all the credit great horror film even thought this is was from the studio that brought you the crocidile hunter and other timeless classics such as Demon and the turner mystery topped off with a story like 24 days later but better and editing and effects from the twisted yet brilliant mind of Duxy .

THIS FILM HAS BEEN KRIMMY HORROR APPROVED

From makrim himself:
this a timeless classic and i agree with every word that dark said
this is a true horror classic.

What krimmy calls
"one of the most artistic and finally done films ever made".

good luck for the future - dark and makrim

This had a very nice look to it, but didn't quite put me over the top. Starting with the narration, it needed more feeling. I just felt like a big chance was missed to sell the whole feel of the movie via narration. Way to monotone, not sure if that was intended or not. The story itself was ok for the most part, though it was a bit weird and lost me many times. A better choice of music might have set the whole tone much better.

Don't get me wrong, this is a great job Duxy. Some of this stuff I mention might be nitpicky, but in my opinion, they are things that could have improved the film.

4.5 rounded to 5

Horrifying...major horror. I love this scary movie, it has really an unique style. This movie puts you to thinking concerning living.

Posted on May 24, 2006
- Orion801

Plot and Characterisation - 33/40 - A very original and non-naturalistic plot. It was very interesting and had plenty of twists and turns although I felt you could have made a bigger deal of some of the twists for greater impact, maybe some loud sound effects, a few more flashing scenes or some loud music. You did this a lot at the beginning but tailed off a bit towards the end. Great plot though, had me gripped from beginning to end.
The characterisation was reasonable but was definately the weak point of this movie. This whole movie was exploring the inner demons of one character but the characterisation just wasn't good enough. From this movie I could tell that this character was depressed and on the verge of being suicidal. He had a lot of inner demons but I still didn't feel like I knew anything about him. I knew nothing of his background, I knew nothing of his personality apart from that he was depressed at the time. Because of this I really didn't care all that much what happened to him which really let down the impact and overall resonance of this movie.

Soundtrack, subs, mods and SFX - 17/20 - The soundtrack really wasn't what it should have been. In a horror it is one of the most important elements for building up tension and giving the revelations and scary moments added impact. The music at the beginning was fine, although the second track went on a bit too long I thought. You didn't use enough loud, jumpy sound effects for the moments that should have had the audiences jumping out of their skins! The soundtrack was reasonably good at the beginning but towards the end, when all of the important moments were, it really tailed off into nothingness when it should have been getting even stronger than it was for the beginning.
The SFX were brilliant. Perfectly executed and really added to the overall impact of the film! The white flashes were very effective and all of the quick changes between the different faces really added impact to this film and made it scarier.

Dialogue - 8/10 - This was reasonable but very much underused to add depth to the main character. It told us what was going on in his head and didn't sound out of character or forced at any point but was nothing special.

Editing - 20/20 - Flawless! This was the strongest point of this film. Absolutely amazing editing, the quick flashes between different scenes and between different zombies was great. At some points I forgot that I was watching a movie made with The Movies as the editing was so well done. There were none of the tell tale scenes that are repeated over and over in TMO movies because they had all been cut up and reformed into new scenes! Great job with the editing, I can't think of a single criticism for it!

Orion's Bonus Marks - 10/10 - I really enjoyed this movie, there were some resonant and meaninful themes addressed in it which is quite rare for a horror. It was very non-naturalistic which I liked and the editing was amazing. The 2 things that really let down this movie for me were the soundtrack and the characterisation. Otherwise great movie!

Total - 88/100
88% - 5 stars! Great movie!

This movie has made me rethink what can be done with the horror genre. Quite frankly... I'm speechless. A film this powerful and strange surely signifies something more than some gutteral utterences from a crank reviewer like me. Treading carefully between artistry and pure terror, Sourman steps into the world of ambiguity, where personal demons dictate the life of a single man trying to cope with his own depression. The writing in this is superb, understated, saturating the viewer in the boiling hot atmosphere that makes us gasp for breath.

Visually, this film left me breathless. This is some of the most incredible editing and visual design I've seen in a long time. But it's the writing that really carries this. You conceptualization of a personal hell really reflects what we have all gone through at one point, only amplifying it to a symbolic status.

I love this movie.

Wow! Fantastic film; I loved the technical work done in this flick, it was obviously a labor of love (well, twisted love). Great custom backdrops and excellent creative use of editing. Quite inspiring for a newbie like me, makes me excited about the filmmaking possibilities! The story line did seem a little off, but any flaw there is vastly compensated for by the very palpable mood created by you efforts. Kickass!

Very unusual. Lots of editing went into this, and it shows. A few too many white screens for my taste, but thats obviously an artistic judgement. Really good job on the voiceovers. Unfortunately, some of the voiceovers were a little quiet - I had a hard time understanding them.

Seriously some freaky stuff, here :) Story was really good, and the music really helped increase the tension in the movie. Also noticed there was quite a bit of work done with the sound effects, which I didn't notice at first because it was done so seamlessly -- wasn't until I thought to myself "The game doesn't do that." that I realised what you'd done.

Nice voicework too, though I was never entirely sure if the deeper voice was saying 'Sever' or not. An instant horror classic, nonetheless.

Interesting yet strange and disturbing story. I often found myself feeling slight unease watching it which is credit to the film making. A more artistic film style which pulls off pretty well. Great Effort

Holy crap! Thank you for ending the series about this animalguy and making now such a great horror movie. :D

It was strange and shocking, well, maybe not so shocking, but yeah it was shocking with all those fast cuts. They kicked my ass and were done great. Even you used no backdrops effects, this movie definitly shows a lot of effort.
And the effort you don't only see in the editing, no, you see it too in the story. It was a strange story, through and through. I still didn't get it at the ending and I had to watch again, and than, it made me say "aha!". Well, at least I think I got it.
The VOs were great. I really enjoyed when this guy was talking and than the bad guy...uhuhuh! I was at the beginning a bit disappointed about the music, because it was from the game I think, but than the music got custom and the custom music fitted into the movie quiet well.
Oh and one more word to the Story. It was holy original, havn't seen yet something on TMO. I guess you got this movie idea and than took it into the game, without changing something on the idea. I guess so and I like that. So I think you know the game so good, that you can say "Ok, I have a movie idea and I know excatly which scenes I will take", and that shows in the movie.

Overall: How can Movie with 57 ratings be on the top? It's from Duxy, one of the greatest reviewer all time on TMO and a great movie from a great moviemaker deserves a great review xD. The movie definitley deserves to be so high, as it was just great to watch and very, very entertaining. Keep up the great work!!

Duxy, well done on an excellent example of what can be done with The Movies! I loved the 'dead' flashes on the people and the voices fitted perfectly. A great example that movies from 'down under' are some of the best around! Solid Effort!!

SUFFER... AND THEN YOU DIE
Reminded me of this:

Into the abyss, perpetual and torturous
The gallery of suicide, internal torment
Archaic carcasses, displayed degeneracy
Once within these walls a life of death will be unleashed

Forever dying are the dead, countless bleeding heads
Cadavers splattered red from the self-slicing of necks
Stenching maggot filled bodies, skulls and bones rot away
The slaughtered souls that chose to die, enveloped in death

Darkness is the only light, suicide the way
Hideous forms of human death, mounds of flesh slowly decay
Embrace the horrid nature, carnage on display

Pain never felt
Enslaved inside this massive grave
Life, evil fate
Only slaves to death can survive this place
Die, perdition
Penance in putrid decadence
Dead miscreants
Enter the decrepit necropolis

Lurid interment in the hellish abattoir
Impetuosity and horror, after-life is tortured
Entrails, guts, and blood is this museums decor

Blood, impiety
Chastened are the sanguinary
Purge, radical
They perish, the victims of vagary
Vile tragedy
With great vehemence the hapless died
Kill, suicide
Serrated blades assist in destiny

Death opened the gallery
Sarcophagus
Ecstasy in suffering
Imprecation

Blood, impiety
Chastened are the sanguinary
Purge, radical
They perish, the victims of vagary

Amazing. You're definitely getting bookmarked. This really explains a lot about depression, but more importantly it explains how one should view depression -- do something about it. A strong message strengthened with great dialogue, seamless VOs, and a soundtrack that I'll remember for quite awhile. You deserve every one of these stars and more.

I really enjoyed see this in better quality than the version i saw previously.. this movie had the right atmosphere to set the mood. Which is key in a horror movie.

Visually, this is a spectacular from the flashing white screens to the dead world backdrops to the freeze frames.... very nice to watch

The lighting, effects, music, and images meshed and really worked well....

Nice Work my friend and congrats on the hot pick.... more success to you...

This is really one of these wishy washy philosphical films marquerading as a horror.

There was a lot really good about this. The first half was done really well and the ending was fantastic. So why not five stars? two reasons. In places in the second half of the movie it began to drag and was slightly repetitive. secondly, the message from the monster was too banal and a bit of a let down. I would have prefered to hear something a bit more metaphoric and dark, rather than the dull "you've not lived life to the full" message, which has already been done in a subtily different way (but not as well as this in my opinion) in "The other Dimension".

In fact the the film was really spelt out too clearly. I think if the whole thing was put in a metaphoric story with the same elements. It would have appealed to me a lot more.

I'm not so sure about the content. Don't get me wrong I did like the movie. It was cool that there was a message in it to. It kind of dragged at a few points, but it is a 5 star movie to me due to the excellent editing done in this film. Keep up the good work.

Duxy, you have created a horror masterpiece here. A zombie film with style and fueled by sheer terror. The flashing and nightmarish effects you involved in this movie are perfect and add to the atmosphere even more. The editing is fantastic, and rolls perfectly from one scene to the next.

My only complaint is of course the sound bug, which became slightly annoying at the end, but this is not your fault. Movies should not be voted down because of this issue.

Ok, the CONXROXS SHASHNAZZLE bit -
MUSIC/SFX - 10/10 - freaky, spine-tingling SFX and professional music to match.
STORY - 10/10 - fantastic horror elements mixed with action to create a gripping tale.
CHARACTERS - 10/10 - you really felt for the character who was going through this terrible ordeal.
VO's/SUBS - 8/10 - for me some of the acting was slightly wooden, but good nevertheless.
WOW! FACTOR - 10/10 - I was blown away at the editing and creepyness of this movie. Well done.

CONCLUSION - 48/50 - 96% - this movie is a must see - the best horror movie ever on TMO! Easily beats Fear! A chilling, nightmarish masterpiece that sucks you in... winner of a CONXROXS SHASHNAZZLE PRIZE!!!

all right, the first part of the movie is alot of action that keeps you watching and stimulates your curiosity, leading to a second part full of meaning and morale.
All this, plus is a lot scary too!
the editing is sharp as a knive's blade.
a must see...

A switch from the comedy series, Duxy Studios releases a supernatural horror onto TMO. This is an intriguing film which has its own freakish style to add to the story. This movie leaves us asking the question is it better to be dead or alive?

Critical areas:
Storyline/Plot: A very interesting storyline for this unnatural horror. The plot is never really defined you leave implications which the viewer has to make as to what is going on. Well written, with good dialogue.

Editing: Freakish cinematic style to create the nightmare effect. Yes it can leave us in an epileptic fit. I liked it though, with the limitations we have in the game this technique worked well to provide the needed imagery.
Sound: Kwistufa's role was so small as well you would have fared better to leave him out (I know Aussie pride and all....). Aside from Kwis's low voice and the synch problem, Your vo's were excellent and you did a good job as a VA.
The music and sound effects added the extra feeling of horror and nightmare to the film.

Overall: It was a good change for you to bite into a more serious role. There will always be room for your Humper series, but this shows the depth you can also achieve as a director. Excellent Horror movie.

What could be worse than not being alive? A great many things.

Firstly, I was worried from the description and the first scene that this was going to be another "I'm depressed and now I commit suicide" movie, which I really, really don't like watching. But I decided to keep watching anyway, and I was pleased to see that it was not. While it did start that way, it then moved in a completely different direction with some great twists and turns.

The production was excellent throughout, with some good use of special effects, backdrops, and editing to create some memorable scenes. The VO's for the two leads were very good, though the volume on the extra was too low.

Overall, I thought this was an excellent horror movie that kept the plot twists coming so that just when you thought you knew what it was about, it changed again. All the best for the future.

Excellent and thoroughly enjoyable horror movie! I have to say I was very impressed by the style - the editing, the atmosphere, the zombies and corpses used to maximum effect - but not so much by the content. But, no doubt, this is in the five star territory (in my book) for horror movies... Great!

I'm going to break with everyone else (at my own peril, I know) and point out that sound synch issue, Dux. This is yet another case of what would be an almost perfect little gem marred by that damned sound/export issue (had it, hate it, feel your pain)...

BUT

You have crafted such a creepy, creepy, creepy tale, visually, storywise (and even sound-wise) that I couldn't possibly take marks off for it. What a story, what a mood, what pacing, what tone, what WOW. The further I get into this community, the more talented storytellers I find...

And the more my bookmarks grow and I find films I can go watch again to pick up tips and tricks on the medium. I love that.

Cannot wait for more from your studio, Dux. Just can't wait.

Excellent Duxy!! So much better than the original rough copy you sent me.
The Editting is out of this world... Great! The 'human zombie skeleton' thing was superb.. Well thought up and creatively cool. The BG sounds & music was also awesome.. Created an excellent eerie vibe through the movie.. The Storyline is also great.. thoroughly had my interest for the entirity of the Movie.. I reckon your going to hit the Top 10 with this one!! Give yourself a pat on the back cause all your hard work & effort has payed off with watching the final Result.. A Horror Masterpiece...!

Duxy! I am impressed with this work of art. Great VO and some cool flashing going on here. The story was well written with some scary bits that actually made me jump: The first flash/result scene. I loved the BG music which propelled this story along with ease.. not that it needed any help because of your outstanding plot. Great FX started towards the middle of the flick and did not let up. This is your obvious best effort and I look forward to more quality flicks from this up and coming studio. Fabulous effort and outcome Dux.
