Film Description
****READ ALL OF THIS FIRST OR NOTHING WILL MAKE SENSE***

First, I want to thank Kuroken for helping me get part 2 released, without his help, I???d still be chasing down sound bugs. Thanks Ken, you???re a pal and I owe ya one.

Also, please don???t post spoilers! Let everyone enjoy the surprises! Thanks!

The Dead Cases Part 2 (Rated R)

This film will make ZERO sense to you if you skipped part one. I highly suggest you see the first half of the film first, available on TMO Hi-res, thanks to Norrie. Cut and paste this link. Miss part 1 and part 2 will just be confusing.

http://www.tmo-hi-res.com/TMOinGloriousHighResolution/TheDeadCases/TheDeadCases.html

Part 2's run ends soon-Watch it while ya can!

This is a Film Noir with a twist.

John Noble is a man who can raise the dead, a trick that served him well while he was a cop, and later a PI. He spent the last 3 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. Follow John Noble as he works against the clock to find Mobster, Sonny Parrish???s missing daughter. John finds himself face to face with old enemies and new more sinister ones. The 2nd part of the film takes us on a unique rollercoaster ride with twists and turns revealing an already dark story. Step into a seedy noir underworld like nothing you have ever seen. Its part Frank Miller, part Raymond Chandler detective thriller with a new twist.

???and watch the credits all the way until the end, a lot of people worked hard on this film and without their help I could not have made the story come to life the way I wanted.


Starring:

MefuneAkira as John Noble
JazzX as Book
Od_Ork_Boy as Sonny Parrish
AnotherNewDawn as Eddie, Det. Andrews
SnakeEater42 as Mr. Black

Release notes:

There are some glitches, like vanishing props and I could not fix it, please try and understand that. One body changes it skin, and there was no way I could fix it. I tried, but the file was nowhere to be found. Oh well. Some sound may appear a little out of sync, not by much, and considering everything we went through to bring this film out, it???s a glitch I will live with. This was never meant to be a 2 part film, but the bugs forced me to split it up.


ALL music used in the film is Copyright Free and either was composed for the film or is in the public domain.

???The Dead Cases??? The films theme Written and Performed by JazzX. A masterful bit of trumpet playing that will forever mean the world to me.

???The Dead Cases Credits ???Death is coming??? written and recorded by
Languid-Phenomenon (a non TMO Member) and used with permission for this film.


???The Girl in a Cell??? Created by me using Mixcraft and copyright free loops.

???Pie Jesus??? is from a collection of public domain religious music I own. Again, EVERYTHING in this film is used with permission by those that created it and or copyright free.

All sound F/X and Sound Design created by Myself and AnotherNewDawn and mixed with Audacity and Mixcraft. No copyrighted elements were used in their creations, but sounds from my personal collection of Royalty Free Effects that I have paid for and own.

I will release these as a collection for TMO???rs to use.


To the cast and crew: You have my eternal gratitude for your support and encouragement. This film is for all of you.

This film lived in my head for along time and I really hope you enjoy it. Thanks for watching and now, if you read this far, thanks for taking the time and now..our feature presentation.

The Dead Cases is a fusion of genres that is just totally mind boggling to comprehend. Jase180 pulls this off with such precision with an outstanding screenplay filled with twists and turns that will have you guessing,wondering,focussed and laughing throughout.

Yes that's right, The Dead Cases is more than just a noir film with a twist. It is an exceptional tale that shows the vast imagination of such a talented writer and producer willing to go BEYOND the standard genre boundaries delivering a unique and distinctive experience for us all.

The strengths of this movie lie in it's capacity to draw you in from the get go with it's authentic setting coupled with some outstanding sfx. It allows the viewer to be sucked into the world of 'The Dead Cases' and feel at ease with it's progression. An example of this would be the use of sound effects for rain and thunder. It was not only used well but it was used appropriately to capture the very essense and mood the film wanted to portray. I found myself laid back,arms crossed feeling like I was watching the events unfold in front of my very eyes rather than on a monitor screen.

An aspect that totally blew me away was something so simple yet pure, the comedic moments. Dead Cases is a very VERY funny film to such a suprise. It's dialogue will have you cracking a smile and even chuckles and laughs. It just goes to show the attention to detail Jase180 went into to delicately write this gem of a movie.

Fantastic use of Mods,Props and Sets to give the viewer a fuller,meatier and more engaging world where grit,dirt,dust,fog etc can be imagined and realised easily.

The Direction was spot on with some fabulous sequences and editting and my jaw dropped on regular occasions just watching this plot unfold.

JazzX provided a haunting musical score which was acompanied well with the plot, characters,dialogue and voice acting.

Overall this was a highly satisfying film and watching Parts 1 and 2 back to back in High Resolution will be amongst the must do things in my list.

Jase congratulations on finally getting this out and I wish you the very best luck with it's success. I look forward to your next imminent project but until then.....

Nuke Well Forever in the Dead Cases!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My name is Tre.Will, and i can review this Amazing film.

There a several reasons why The Dead Cases CANNOT receive anything less than 5 stars. Let's make a list, shall we.

1. This film has, in abundance, what a lot of other TMO, and even Hollywood
films lack, Plot.

2. TMO members who frequent the forums and are familiar with this program, know
damn well that this is an achievement, especially when you compare it to
other TMO films that have received 5 stars undeservingly.

3. The sound design of this film is so well done, that even if you took away
the visuals, it could still serve as an entertaining radio show. Big ups
to all the VA's, you guys did an absolutely fantastic job; but really, what
would you expect from such powerhouse VA's? Mefune, A_N_D, JazzX, the list
goes on. A directors wet dream ensemble.

4. You could take away any "1" of this films strong points, and it would still
be a cinematic triumph. Again folks, you must remember the limitations of
this program. 2 years ago, hell, 1 year ago, a film like this was
unfathomable.

5. The Slow-Motion Sequence! You could strip away this entire project and have
only that sequence and it would still be 5 star worthy, seriously, when was
the last time you've seen a slow-motion shootout in a TMO Film...don't
worry, I'll wait.

From beginning to end, The Dead Cases entertains; and from beginning, i mean Part 1 to Part 2. This ever-so stylish and unique Noir "with a twist", truly lives up to the hype. And man am i glad that you opted to go color and not black and white, which is practically "Noir Law". The color truly gives it a supernatural and dark element.

Now, from filmmaker to filmmaker, to truly do believe that your villain was under-developed. A good villain's role, is to bring the best and the worst out of his "hero" counter-part, though John Noble definitely comes off as more of an anti-hero; doing the right thing because in the end, it will benefit him. I would have focused more on developing your primary antagonist, in oppose to dedicating so much time to developing "Book". Even though he was a wonderful character, i never understood his motive, maybe he didn't have any, or maybe he was just doing as he was told; but if your going to spend time developing a character, i would like to know more about them.

All in all, this film is by far an instant TMO classic; once it's available on Norrie's site, it will be only the 4th film added to my personal collection, reserved for only the best TMO films.

Experience "The Dead Cases", or Mr. John Noble will resurrect your mother and do naughty things to her while your restrained by Book and forced to watch.

Fantastic work!

Fantastic dialogue and great action sequences highlight this noir with a twist. MefuneAkira once again shows us why he's one of the best voice actors in the community. His tough and gritty portrayal of John Noble makes him one of the best characters in TMO history. Full of regret and attitude, he gets the job done the way it should be. JazzX & AnotherNewDawn also showcase their acting talents in their respective characters. Helped along by smooth editing and directing, this is one supernatural noir that can't be missed. Excellent work all around the board.

In my opinion this in one of the biggest films on TMO. A really original movie, it was a noir with a twist. I much enjoyed part 1 and this is an excellent conclusion. The plot and dialogue were excellent and well assembled, voiced by some superb VA's.

The in game and outside content has been used to the full in this movie by all means keeping the movie fresh all the way through. I also really enjoyed the special effects used and the free-cam was exceptional.

My hat goes off to the cast and crew of this production and of course Jase180 the writer/Directed. Congrats on a groundbreaking movie.

Strider Out!

Well -- a damn fine film. Both parts. It's been a long time since I've watched something I feel is worth putting in my 'Recommended Films' thread, and this has got to go in there.

All the macro elements are fantastic here... An immersive story, some memorable characters, a great noir atmosphere, and some great pacing that culminates in a satisfying conclusion. The witty banter during the raising-the-dead scene was a very nice touch. And to top it off, you've put in some obvious effort on production value. The sound design is great, and helps set the mood.

There's alot of good micro here as well. You've taken care to match the character animations that can often be difficult to manage, and for the most part individual scenes have a good flow.

It's only in the tiniest of details I can find the odd flaw... a voice or two that (with my headphones at least) had a touch of background noise... some camera moves in part one that passed through objects... one or two moments where the characters seem to mysteriously be in a new location. Those sorts of things.

Kudos to your entire cast for a job very well done, and your modders for their work. Make sure you send along a special kudos to JazzX (which I'm sure you've already done) for the trumpet solo; and to Ken for helping with the export. I know all too well how tough it can be to get these behemoths out there.

A mid-to-high 5 stars from me.

GREETINGS FROM L.M.A.O. STUDIOS!

The mind blowing ending to the film noir epic of the year, doesn't hold back!

THE GOOD: Oh yeah this is easy. Where does one start? I think what crabs most viewers attention in this film is the quality of detail to every shot. First, the audio has many layers of rich depth that stands out from most TMO films. Music, sound effect, atmosphere and voices are all carefully balanced with fine tuning to entrance the viewer and draw them in. The voice effect of Eddie are disturbing, but by adding a comical undertone, not to mention the acting by AND, is what really brings the character to life. The second is the story flow or pace of the film. The writing doesn't rush the story or try to patronize you with cheap story telling. Jase lets the scenes themselves unfold the story and has a gift for explaining the story with a cinematic paint brush. Thirdly is the dialog. I loved the thought process Jase used writing this story. Using the classic film noir dialog is a tricky thing to attempt. Get it wrong and the film becomes laughable, like many films made of this genre. Jase pulls it off without breaking a sweat. Word for word, its simple priceless.

The cinematography is exceptionally original. When film like this stand out for its visual beauty its not wonder it has taken the TMO community by storm! Jase uses every angle possible to give the look of the film a unique look that keep you attention.

The special effects of both audio and visual left us in awe. Never have we seen the pains taking level of detail to come up with these amazing effect. The slow motion in the office, the car scene and the blood spurts are another layer of thi8s films premium caliber.

The acting on TMO films usually take the viewer out of the film when a line is read badly or by a bad actor. Hey, it happens! But as a direct Jase knows what it takes to get it right. Every line was a perfect and very well acted by allm. Pace, volume and clarity were perfect and adds yet another layer of realism.

As I said in part 1, JazzX's music is the emotional backbone of the film. He has a real talent for carrying each scene with amazing scores. Brilliant.

And who doesn't love "No, your just dead again!"

It was an honor to be a part of this project and I thank my pal Jase for bringing such a masterful piece of art to TMO.

Well done.

Great second part. You got pulled right from the start into the story and first I found it a bit confusing, cause I couldn't remember the first part that well. But soon I got into the story again and was very entertained by it.

There's a lot of positive to say about this movie, but I also like to mention that I found some dialogue scenes to be a bit unoriginal in terms of directing. You could have intested easily a bit more love to the detail into them. I also quiet didn't like some of the jokes, I think they didn't fit in here, like the smoking joke. Or those one-liners.

Nonethless, so much positive has been said about this movie, so it truly deserves the five stars. Just because of the slow motion, wow!

What a climax! And what was it that I saw? It was unbelievably fantastic!

I loved the camera work in many places, and editing was right on the money (but that�??s no news). Together, they really grab the viewers and immerse them into this other world.

Snappy dialogue was fun to listen to. So was the great cast.

This is going to be a classic!

This was an outstanding project as well written as anything on TMO. VOs, sound and especially the music all top notch. Set dressings and mods all very impressive in setting up this off kilter place. My favorite script element in this episode was the eddie character, tough, funny, dead. A lot of fun left in that corpse.

Editing was ultra smooth though my only critique concerns the action sequences. While bullet time was nifty (worked better the second time) the action scenes that applyed around them were confusing to me. It was hard for me to discern the direction and general goings on that were happening at the 13:30ish minute mark and in the scene after the ghoul goes out the window. In the grand scheme of things this would knock you from about 8 stars to 7 so not much else needs to be said.

Enormously entertaining.

Incredible! The sustained film noir lighting, music, atmosphere, and dialogue are a huge achievement. The limitations of The Movies may be getting smaller, but this series (both parts) push them to the limit and beyond. An obvious labor of love, done with intelligence and passion.

A thrilling conclusion to this highly unique film noir/horror mix. If I hadn't read the script already, I would have been completely clueless on what was going to happen. I can't say much about the plot as I don't wanna spoil it, but I will say that the VO's were very good. I was even impressed with my own this time around (still think I coulda' used more voice deepening but meh). A big kudos to everyone who made this possible - I plan to gather my family around and play both parts for 'em sometime this week. I'm sure they'll love it.

All in all, anyone who doesn't watch this is going to be seriously missing out on one of the BEST TMO flicks out there.

Just as riveting as the first part. The style stands out and the voiceactors bring life to the characters. It's obvious they were given true direction. Exceptional work here.

Dulcilicious!

It's kind of funny....After reading a good portion of Raymond Chandler's "The Long Goodbye"(a great recommendation by the way) I have grown to have a new appreciation for the character that is John Noble. He is a no-nonsense bad ass with a conscious.

Part 2 of the series has it all; action, suspense, and more thrills than a roller coaster with a 100 foot drop. Of course this what we have come to expect from the excellent exposition brought to us in part one. Gritty, ominous, and supernatural; The Dead Cases 2 delivers the goods. Hell, there was even some great dark comedy with the Eddie character.

In closing "The Dead Cases" is exactly what I want to see when I watch a film on TMO. Something fresh, unique, thought-provoking, entertaining, and of course expertly crafted.

I can not elaborate on my review for part one. I can only say that this brilliant film delivers the goods in spades! I must say how much I love JazzX's score on this film. It is so haunting and beautiful.
Jase you are a star in my book. There are not many I would say that about but then you got it in your blood. Hollywood fever and there is no getting away from it. You can only turn it into a dream which is what this film is. But then you know I am a sucker for a Hollywood dream.

Watched and downloaded. A fitting conclusion to the story. I loved the way the the Noble backstory was explained in snipets throughout both halves and did not exactly go where one might have expected. I could go on but suffice to say I agree with much of the praise of those who have comment before me. I hope this half experiences some chart traction and draws more viewers to the first half.

I was an instant fan of part 1 and I am am even more in awe of the series now that I've seen part 2. Truly a film that you can sink your teeth into and just let yourself get swept away.
All of the performances were excellent as was the direction and music.
I might go a bit easier on the pitch shifting of some of the voices next time, but that's just my personal preferance.

I have an old expression that I still use when something blows me away : "un sucess fou!

cheers Jase, cast, composers and modders.

I was glued to the screen the whole 22 min, and I just hope we'll get to see a high res version of this one soon... I'm sure a lot of details will be even more breathtaking then...
Just loved the cam work, Festus did the most amazing slo-mo effects, and sound, music and voices were, as in part 1, outstanding!
Great, great work Jase, an instant TMO classic!

An amazing achievement here Jase..and A_N_D.
I'm fairly at a loss for words. That was just Brilliant.
Well.., both Pts 1 & 2. But it was great to see this 2nd part
finally finished and released.
With a film with so much Extra stuff in it
you really did well with that damn Sync Bug.
While watching I just kept thinking of how much care & effort
has gone into the making of this (Will be if not already)
Legendary 2 part Movie.
No spoilers so I won't bring up instances or moments that really stood out
to me, but lets just say I sat through the 22.40mins and I'm not sure if
I blinked once. So much crammed into this to bring it to life.
Slickness! All the way. Festus's Help was Amazing.. That blew me away..
The VO's were excellent, everyone seemed to suit their Characters.
The Production was just Magnificent.
This is already Downloaded for the FAV's Folder.
You are one of my most respected Directors in this little place
we call TMO Jase. Hats off to you..and Kudos & all that stuff.
Sound Effects were great.The Music.., by JazzX was Brilliant!!
Wow Paul.. Really amazing job there. Spot on.
Thank you for letting me be a small part of this Amazing Movie.
Rubbing shoulders with the Best TMO has to offer. Cheers.
Well Done to you Jase on making your Idea become a Reality.
Great Movie.

MMF contributed a nice surprise to this enormous film. I'm so happy to have Part 2 now residing on a CD so I can watch Jase's well crafted movie again and enjoy the story and the performances of some mighty talented VA's. Of course the sets were a visual treat with content from a host of modding gods. WEll done, Jase... Super job, everybody! This will be a movie that will retain a recognition as a splendid example of high end entertainment! ===K4===

A fantastic conclusion to one of the most original works on TMO. The Dead Cases PT2 delivers and more - with stunning visuals, beautiful vo's and music, crips clean editing and an athmosphere that pulls you right in. There were a few hicups as have been stated, but i appreciate with the limitations of the sfotware these are unavoidable. Overall a brilliant movie and well deserving of my Spark of Inspiration Award

I've seen this movie more time than anyone other than Jase....I've seen it with no sound at all...I've seen it with sound effects and music, but no dialogue....I seen it with dialogue but no music or sound effects. And each time I've seen it, I've discovered something new.

The visuals are terrific - evocative of both time and mood. The sweeping camera movements are always spot on, and the editing is tight. And the special visual effects are frankly a wow!

The sound effects and music are amazing....sound layered upon layer, some sounds identifiable, others unnervingly unfamiliar...and always the sound of the thunder and the rain. The music - sparse, but always there when when needed. And JazzX's haunting theme to cap it all off.

Put it all together and you've got an amazing film, one that's both lush and creepy, with outstanding voice acting from every member of the cast. It was a pleasure to do what little I did to help Jase get this out to the community.

Wow, what is there to say. Just an absolutely outstanding piece of work. Right up until the end I was walking side-by-side with Book and Nobel. Once again all of the VOs and music were seemless and perfectly done. I would have to say some stand outs in the cast are, of course, MefuneAkira, JazzX, and I loved A_N_D as both the police detective and the salty corpse. I would say that I was wholeheartedly impressed with the slow-mo effects. That whole sequence is definetely something to be proud of. I just cannot wait to see this film in High Quailty. It will surely bring this magnificent film to the level of realism it deserves.

Wonderfull!
"The Dead Cases" is now on my favurite top ten list! What an well crafted story with a few twist and surprises.(now shut my mouth, no spoiler) And again all voice actors did a wonderfull job, combiened with the awsome music, that makes such an intense atmosphere... just wonderfull!
Only at the last shot in the credits, I spotted the end of the set again...

All in all "The Dead Cases" truly is one of the best films on TMO and couldn´t be better realized with the movies than you did it!

That was spectacular! Everything was done so well, with great VA's, sets, mods, freecam, etc. Speaking of mods, that's without a doubt the best slow motion I've ever seen!
There was some certainly smooth and realistic dialogue, and I loved the voice of Eddie. But, was it just me, or did the language get a little saltier?
However you slice it, anyway, it lives up to the hype of the first one without a doubt. Excellent.

Yeah, some nice set dressing and smooth dialogue and sweeping camera angles. What lets it down for me was a bit of sloppy editing in the converation sequences. The random actions didn't seem to fit the moment. Otherwise a good movie.
