«Great movie excellent sound design also script.
DON't BE ALARMED...A Serial Killer Thriller
«All valid points. Thanks. However...it is a horror movie and as in other horror movies, have you ever wondered why the girl will go into another room to check out a strange noise only to be killed when she should have just ran out of the house in the first place. Nothing ever makes sense (lol). Thanks to everyone who took time to give me feedback on the movie. It's a learning process.»
«Interesting piece, it holds your attention pretty well, and the animations were good, too.
My top concern was how the officer's eyes would change red as they did, as I'm sure that was implying that he'd have been the killer, but even before you learned it wasn't, it seemed that it'd be a prelude to a supernatural tone.
There's also how the cop got her phone number without having to look anything up without having to look back as his car and radio so much as the house info, and not see something went down, or even heard the gunshot that took his partner out. Perhaps it's me nitpicking, but there were these points that were worth mentioning. »
«The production values on this video are just superb. Your attention to visual detail and adding in the little extras is just phenomenal. The post production effects you add just push the production over the top. What are you using, After Effects? Visually, I'd have to say you are working at a professional level. Your sound design is pretty dam good as well.
I don't get to work with MS enough to be sure of all it's capabilities or if I don't have a pack that with some of the animations you use but a couple of things left me asking how you did them. The first was the van window going down. I'm guessing that was post production. The other one was the lean out the window. Was that an After Dark pose positioned on an invisible prop near the window?
As a MovieStorm director I am pretty much in awe at what you are doing. As a viewer I had some problems with the plot which I will address below in the "Spoiler Alert" Section.
Ultimately, I feel your movies are not to be missed and encourage everyone to see them. I'm giving this 5 stars for all the goodness that is in it but I still think you could have tightened it up plotwise.
One cop is shot at the van and presumably dragged to a position under the window and yet the other cop indicates that he was chasing someone. This implies a foot chase. What were they chasing? Where's the van with the blood stain outside the door? The cop who is shot clearly comes from a squad car with nobody else in it. Are there 3 cops in this story? If so, why doesn't anyone notice the abandoned squad car or the van?
Why does nobody hear the gunshot? First of all, any cop would be keanly aware of the sound. Secondly, it would be hard to argue that someone in the neighborhood wouldn't have heard it. I guess a silencer would have solved that problem but it just seems too many of the events in the story seem to take place in a a vacuum.
What about cop to cop communication? There doesn't appear to be any and a cop going off the communication grid is a major deal. I guess that could be written off to an error in judgement on the partner for not calling in reinforcements but that definitely puts him on a track to be the worlds worst cop. (Lost hat, un-noticed dead partner in alley when he saw someone go behind house, doesn't hear gunshot, calls the woman on a cell phone rather then going to the door, gets taken down by hairspray)
The biggest problem I had though was with the effort taken to make it look like the cop was the killer in disguise. First there is the cell phone call to the woman. That's definitely not police procedure. Then, he acts wierd when asked to show his ID. When he does show it his face is hidden with an overhead camera angle. And then there are the red eyes. Who but a killer has red eyes? (Except for me on New Years Eve) It just seemed hughly disengenuis and I believe you could have led to the same cop is killer perception without taking it to this extreme.»
