Free-cam use/overlay use 3.5/5- It could be sooo much better! Specialy when the transformation happened.
Story/character 4/5- You said the story happened 400 years ago, and it's happening in 2006...there's probably something I missed. Anyway, the character are already known.
VO/Music/sound sfx/subtitles 4/5- The music (even if all wasn't custom music grrr) was really well adapted, nothing to complain about. The vo's were ok.
Editing/setdressing 3/5- Nothing amazing either. And when the rabbit get inside the office, it's like you missed something with the light and you add this line about puting the light on... That's my fealing. The setdressing...was really poor.
Enjoyment 4/5- I enjoyed it, that was fun and very original.
Conclusion: An original Christmas Tale, I'm sure it could be better, I have the fealing that the end was done really fast.
Total 18.5/25- 4 Stars

+ selection of music...
+ VO Cast bringing the film too life....
+ Good costume selection for characters..
+ Nice use of lighting setting the dark scenes...
+ Different but unique story about and evil santa clause and sick psycho family.
Overall I was surpised on how dark, evil and psycho the film was... A great film with really good VO work.... 5 stars for creativity...

Incredibly original and fantastically disturbing! Two things I would never link with a christmas movie, but 'Santa And Mr Hyde' is filled to the brim with both. The sound was superb. I really enjoyed the VOs and the music kept it all nice and tense, dispite the bells and christmas theme. Great use of camera and editing, I could hardly find any flores.
The sript was excelent, nice dialogue and the use of the right scenes made this movie truly enjoyable, if not terrifying, to watch.

I'm your 100th reviewer! Great movie, I loved the free camera.

Wow that was so strange i've never heard of santa doing that. Hyde was perfectly played by DRho. It was sinister and had a scence of fear. 4 stars and i've never given any on that many before
watch my movies

I'm always in the mood for christmas, it's my favorite time of the year. But i'm never to big on evil christmas ovies. Like Black Xmas that came out before christmas. It was good and i would of gave you a five, but i'm not big on christmas that has been altered into something evil.
Even though i don't believe in santa no more i stil play along because of my little sis. The thought of him being Mr. Hyde though is just spine tingling.

Very Interesting, I must admit I didn't think this was going to be as dark as I thought it would be. To be honest with you, this didn't exactly have a warm fuzzy feeling at the end, more like "hahah you die! Merry Christmas!" kinda thing. But thats what makes this movie unique, in most cases the average Chirstmas Tale would end with a good feeling and make you feel happy. As far as problems in this movie go, there was a couple grammer errors in the subtitiles....But the VO's were so good, they surpassed those minor errors. The script however, exceeded my expectations much more than what I orginally thought of in this movie. Now the reason I'm only giving you four stars, is because the end of this movie did not satifify me as I wanted it too. BOOM your dead, Merry Christmas. This In my opinion rushed the ending into the bad father dying.
All in all, this would make a good movie for those who wouldn't expect a happyily ever after tale. Good job on your part tas, this really showed a great amount of creativity I'm sure. Thumbs up on my book.

Simply a genious story and really nice shots ;)
I enjoyed it really much!
Posted on April 12, 2007
I just can say what "monkeybiz" said. It's a good story, good sounds, voices and great actors!
In this movie you can see what may happen, if you just have got to do a monotone job!
The really name of Santa is Michael D.?

Posted on March 21, 2007
That was ok, not good, i like it, but still its not one of them movies that i would wanna see again, no offence but it's not a very good christmas movie and it could have been made longer than that and i would have probably liked it more, you other movies are great, im a fan of you, but this has not been your best film, next time just film on and it should take more of my attention, that also reminds me of bad santa, because of what he did. Please watch and rate my movies please. Thanks

Wow... What a bold Bad Christmas movie. Its altogether in another vein than Bad Santa and movies like that. The VO's were great, which stopped me trying to strain my eyes reading the subtitles.
I guess that the subject matter and some of the scenes were sort of unsettling, but that's what it was supposed to be. In terms of freecam, VO's and story, I think it well deserved to win.
Posted on February 20, 2007
Creepy mood. I like this.
Great music. (Festive yet eerie.)
Excellent editing and freecam useage. I loved how you illistrated the letter as it was read. Very very nice (and sad)
Please check out my new movie "Death on Two Feet - CHAPTER 2" if you get a moment.

Hmmm a very strange one indeed. Warped is the key and I thought you managed to bring something different in terms of Dark Xmas. Keep up the strange work ^_^

That was a well made funny little movie.
Not as funny as the reviews below, but still good entertaiment.
Posted on February 17, 2007
Okay that was very different, admiteddly my review has come way too late for me too feel even half christmassy, but then again this is a lot more sinister than your average Christmas movie, to be frank this movie more dampens your Christmas spirit then tries to liven it up. I am a big fan of dark Christmas movies, two of my all time favourite Christmas movies in real life are Nightmare Before Christmas and also Bad Santa, however my feelings towards this movie came out as somewhat mixed. You see my problem is that this seems to go over the limit that a Christmas movie should have. Having darker Christmas stories are nice, but this movie seems a bit too dark and I suppose nasty for its own good. That's the only reason I've given this a four star rating rather than a five star, the movies tone just felt a bit unsettling with me. Anyways ignore my small worry as I still did enjoy this movie a hell of a lot and I would ignore the people one starring and claiming the movie is practically horrific. Its dark to be certain but not to the extent it will reduce children to fits of tears. The movie does have many things going for it and I can see why it did win the Lionhead Competition, mainly for originality. The movie also does feature some brilliant editing and free cam shots that make the movie look and feel trully beautiful. The music also manages to give the film a creepy atmosphere that I felt worked very well.
This movie did have one other problem now I think about it, a couple of dodgy pieces of dialogue that just stood out like a sore thumb. However the good Voice acting made up for the that fact and the fact that the script was generally excellent made me choose to ignore these dodgy lines. Overall Santa and Hyde was a very intriguing and memorable movie that is a lot different from your average Christmas fare. Unfortunatelly I cannot decide whether this is a positive fact or a negative fact. But for the time being it seems an enjoyable if a bit too dark movie that has great atmosphere and a great script. Gets a high four star rating but I can understand a bit of the controversy surrounding the movie.

GREAT movie, taz, really good. You covered all the bases, you directed it superbly - the camera work was outstanding, the titling and voiceovers were Excellent.
The story was superb, with a great ending. Fabulous movie.
Posted on February 11, 2007
This movie really didn't do it for me. I just felt it lacked so much. The story was not that good in my opinion. While it was a new fresh and thrilling idea, I just don't think it worked well. Especially the ending. That was just rediculous. The Vos were ok and the freecam angles were great. Overall though, this was kind of a let down. Oh well.
Good luck on future projects!

Editing 4/4 : Good editing. The various shots of santa getting drunk were a bit hard to see, I think the camera got a bit to close, but otherwise everything looked good.
Dialogue 2/3 : Mostly good dialogue. A few minor grammer errors in the subtitles. Plus the volume changed on the voice overs about mid way though the movie. The volume change wasn't drastic, and everything was still understandable, but it was noticable.
Plot/Originality 3/5 : The plot wasn't bad, however there needed to be something more. It felt like the movie was just getting started. You did end it at a decent place, but the more interesting plot was left untold. Did santa go bad, if he didn't how will he react to this change, assuming he regains his goodness again. The plot as it stands resembles many of the other guy with guns goes on a killing spree, at least this has a reason behind it, unlike many others.
Entertainment 4/5 : It was a little slow, but it was well done and wasn't too long. A good effort and you have some talent.
Music/Sound 3/3 : The sound and music were good thoughout the movie. The music could stand to be credited though, unless you made it yourself.
Total : 16/20 - 4 stars - Good job.

Story: 4/5 Pretty nice. Strange perhaps, but hey, then you should see my Santa movie, which I havent uploaded yet due to some technical problems. Anyway it makes stange get a entirely new definition. I will upload it soon, so you people can enjoy it.
Subtitles: 5/5 Good job.
Voiceover: 5/5 Look up.
Editing: 4/5 Nice but you use the fading function far to often. It isn't nessecary to use it that much.
Music: 4/5 Brilliant, but why did you use "A long time ago" for the letter scene. It is made for "The Godfather" wannabe movies, not for tragic letters.
Posted on February 3, 2007
I Loved it! it is one of the best movies i have seen. I love how the camera kept on changing shot and moving around! I think the best scene is the last and the close up on the hsot gun worked realy well!

Very nice film you have would have been 5 stars but somethings could have been done better:
Vo's : 10/10
Posted on January 20, 2007
Nice little movie here. It told what it wanted to in the short time of 5 minutes. The effect at the end (the one with the shotgun) was really cool. Try using that again. Oh, and your voice work was really well done.
Posted on January 16, 2007
Wow...I was actually into this one! I loved the narration. Also the music, even though it's from the game, it really had that Christmas movie sound to it, so that was very well selected. The custom music you added was even better. Overall...so far the best Christmas movie I've seen to date. kudos and good luck in the competition!
Posted on January 13, 2007
Hey there Taz - great flick. read that you had to cut this down some to enter into competition and that is probably the reason that this lacks a certain bit of story. Hence the lack of the full five star rating. Overall quality was pretty good with some set dressing and the scenes totally fit what you were trying to do. A dark tale of xmass and alter egos. Nice VO work.
Posted on January 13, 2007
It's hard to believe that this movie was once 11 minutes, because it worked quite well for the 5 minutes that it ran for. I enjoyed the beginning, although custom titles would've worked a lot better. The editing was good, but there were a few continuity errors such as the time mysteriously changing from evening to night and vice versa. The VO's were all great, except for one or two robotic lines which I need not address. The transition between Santa and Mr. Hyde was very well worked, I quite enjoyed it. The music fitted the dark, eerie tone of the movie and wasn't too loud nor too quiet.
Overall, I enjoyed this movie, but the plot seemed a little too weak. Good luck with the competition though, I know this movie can go far!

Dark Santas are always a psychological nightmare for a lot of people! How cool would it be if there were more Dark Santas to take care of all of the bad little boys and girls? LOL ! Thanks for this present! He's making a list and checking it twice... gonna find out who's naughty or nice........
Posted on January 9, 2007
I have to say . . . . that was both disturbing and depressing, but once you work past that you realize it isn't so bad of a story, it actually all fits together.
But anyway nice voice overs, maybe a tad too loud, and nice editing.

Duey Decimal Rating: 4.5
Good use of music, it helped to keep it dark. The transition from Saint Nick to Mr. Hyde, was done very well. The VA was very good as well. Rebecca's subtitles were a little dificult to read but, the VA over more or less made it a non issue. The story was good and kept my interest.
Good luck in the Competition.
I found your movie searching for all the competition entries.
Posted on January 6, 2007
Good work - lots of good V.O. performances in a well paced and edited film.
The story wasn't the best, to be honest - and when the guns came out at the end, I switched off. But despite that, there was some great work here.
Posted on January 5, 2007
Nice movie just keep on filming this and you will own:)
