Film Description
To Harry, it is better than sex. He just cannot help himself.
All he wants is to see the look of fear on their faces.

This is a bit of a departure from my usual comedy offerings , I guess I felt like a change.

OK, before you ask, where are the VOs? Well I don???t do them OK?
And as for subs, I toyed with the idea of using them, but felt that there was just no need ??? the plot???s
strong enough to stand without ???em.

Music.
My thanks for the music go to ???
tracks 1,2,3 and 7 - er, to me, which I composed and created myself.
tracks 4 and 8, John Sore and Xcyril respectively, which are available for commercial and non commercial use from www.jamendo.com.
track 5 - Meowan, and The Movies Vision at http://www.themoviesvision.de,
track 6 - Bruscar5 at http://8eyedbaby.com/8eyedCM/content/displayMods.php?Category=mands

Props/Mods
My thanks for custom props go to ???
Bongoman, for that invaluable forehead shot.
Fraas for the extra-gore blood puddle.
Stormwhitelab for the Union Jacks (we have crime in the UK too you know ;o)
The bullet-through-the windscreen, and the driving mirror, were done by me.

Finally, my thanks to Pegleg for his Daz-rendered image used in my marketing poster.

That was pretty good.
Really liked your Rearview & Bullet in the Windscreen Overlays.
Story was good.. Easy enough to follow & understand.
Editting was great. Only minor thing I noticed was near
the end it took him a while to drop after the 3 shots.
All in all a well presented enjoyable watch of retribution & Murder. :D

Wow I really liked this flick!
I liked the direction you took this one leading up to the final twist...excellent.
VERY effectively put together with the music,and once again I have to mention how much I liked your self-made music...it fit the tone of the flick spot-on.

I agree with Pegleg about the freecam,and I also was especially impressed with the panning shot from behind the chainlink fence.
I'm glad you didn't add subs or VO..they would have been more of a distraction than anything...the music and freecam together were more than enough to explain the story.
The car-mirror overlay is a fantastic idea.
Overall more than nicely done:-)
Another great flick to add to my collection:-)

Impressive movie soundtrack compositions there, Maestro. I liked all the tracks, the 1st three being my faves. Nice overlays, especially the comic-style vertical box cutouts. Lotsa killin'. I thought the car kill was choice.

Good stuff that contains a very strong storyline and great music and visuals. Some of my favorite shots include the striped overlay shots and the chain link shots. Very stylish. As per the story, there were some distinct changes that continued to make things interesting with the story moving from a dc sniper angle all the way to a pacinoesque 'cruisin' type of thing. Very interesting and entertaining flick.

A departure indeed but what a departure! From the opening scene expertly crafted by utilising inventive camera angles and some great music all the way through to some fantastic overlays and mods, this set the scene for an exciting experience.
The story is simple enough not to need subtitles as you mention in your write up, and the ending was a departure within a departure making it fresh and unexpected.
To me though the strength of this was the camera work which seemed to blend with the music seamlessly. The shot behind the fencing in the alley was particularly effective. Also the first killing had me thinking wow how did he manage that?
All in all this is one of the most interesting movies I've seen on TMO.

Very well done. Beautiful looking movie with unbelievable camera work and editing. Bummer story but still I was drawn to it. Clever twist at the end. Extremely well made. Continued succes.

Wow now thats a hell of alot of entertainment.
I really enjoyed this.

Not much of a mind blowing killer.
But it was very entertaining. Your camera angles were awesome which were helped by your overlays. I hope to see more from you Bob.

You have made a interisting work on that movie. First I like the atmosphere of the movie with the soundtrack which give an original style to your movie, the good use of the camera is important too. And overall the good music, I see you've created several tracks, congrats, it appreciated it. I like the oeverlay and the work ont the post-prod in the scene of the car.
The story was plesant to follow.
So, see you!

Excellent camera angles and moves. Story a bit sick, but properly twisted at the end.

nice little morality play, here. your camera work rules, both editing and placement. the keyhole cut out overlays when the woman was walking are particularly cool, and i will steal that idea for a future movie. i gotta say, i think the story line needs some work, but otherwise, an excellent 'the movies' film.

Great opening sequence, there was an emediate tence that this woman sooner or later would to be killed. Very good. I was rather surprised at that moment where she gets shot actually. Pretty good proceeding of the next assassination, that was also pretty scary.

However, I'm not very happy towards the ending and the ending itself. I mean this killer is obviously good at what he does, and should've because of that been able to kill that particular man as well. Suddenly when the man pulls out his gun, the killer suddenly becomes helpless and doesn't act like a professional killer. And I don't understand why the killer waits with stabbing him to death, instead of just doing it right away. I can understand that you wanted a twist in this movie, but in my opinion, I didn't like it very much, I think you should have thought out something else.

But apart from that it was good.

Man what a sick and twisted little society you've created here. Very good movie and your right the plot was strong enough not to have had subtitles. Very good transition from comedy m8, keep em coming. 5/5

Wow, great cam work and overlays! And I liked the end of the story very much... kind of sometimes people reap what they sow, isn't it?
You're right, this one needed no vo's nor subs! Loved the music too! Great work!

Holy Sh!T that is freakin cool. sweet overlays, very nice camera work. The plot is solid, and the music fits like a glove. Looks like I got a long way to go LOL.
Check out "Killin' the Sheriff" when you get a chance.
(Where can I find a good freecam tutorial? I havn't quite got it figured out yet.)
