«Although is not my cup of tea, it's stylish and well done.
I think people are reading too much into the 9/11 thing, it's just the backdrop of the scene and has little to do with the subject matter. There was no footage just the news report.
This film did it's job, it raised eyebrows, it sparked controversy and became a big conversation piece around the water cooler.
«Although is not my cup of tea, it's stylish and well done.
«For me it simply confirms one more time man"s inhumanity to man - if we do it to one person we do it to all people. It's that part of ourselves we need to change - Hey - I loved it. - Job well done and right in time for Halloween too - Great eye for detail - great set design and great job.»
«Great animation with a lot of attention paid to detail (and the devil is in the details); liked the posters in the bathroom, especially. I have Dead Snow in my Netflix queue. I need to watch it. While I don’t like your subject matter, I do admire the way you execute it.»
«Excellent! and very dark and disturbing. Very nice camera work too.
I was thinking that a few added sound fx of a chainsaw being started up and then a female scream at the fade out would have enhanced the scene change to the conclusion fade in and make it a little more disturbing.»
«Interestingly, I wish I had seen this before the descriptive was added. It's a brave path to take in making something like this, and I wonder if I would have realised the context before knowing the intent. It's short, sharp and rather disturbing in its own right, but attached to the events of the day in question it rears up quite poignantly. The idea of the movie is a clinical way of examining the events and a certain perspective of what happened. A bit surreal and bizarre. I can't say that I "liked" this movie, but you have to admit that it stirs something within the viewer, and that is always an achievement.
Technically very good - I think it would have had a greater impact without the slasher-film caracature and monster-movie laugh - kind of sledge-hammering the idea a bit. My greatest criticism is that it seems to have been made for a quick shock effect rather than as an analytical treatise on removed violence... But then again, we're talking about it, aren't we?»
«Yikes. Great graphics work again. As to the film itself, I interpret this to mean that everything has a meaning based on one's own perspective. For most Americans, 9/11 brings up memories of the brutal mass murder of thousands of their countrymen. However, for the family and friends of this film's victim, it'll be remembered primarily for her solitary death (and I guess the killer may also remember that date more for his own deeds since it seems he scarcely paid any attention to the newscasts). Yes, it's a bold move to choose such a sensitive topic for use in such a film, but if you can't experiment on a free-for-view film site, where CAN you try such radical ventures out? Sure you may drive some viewers off from watching your future exploits, but that's the risk one takes with each and every film released. So if you're testing the waters as to how people will react to your visions, definitely go for it (and if your goal is to simply shake up the scene and shock viewers, heck that's your perogative as well). One thing's for sure though--I'm gonna keep checking on what you drum up next. »
«Even though I totally detest the subject matter and the meaning behind the piece, of which I can fully understand people being upset! I cannot deny that you have a certain flair with iClone and I would love you to produce something that I could be entertained by as opposed to impressed by your technical ability.»
«What the hell was that.
you know i understand your going for the shock factor in your movies but your always slaughtering woman.
And know too take something like 911 and too another slaughter of woman with it.
what are you trying too day in then yeah there where other thing going on that day like killers killing woman.
there where also people watching in horror as some of there love ones where in the building falling too there death and burning too death you have know idea the pain that day caused people shidden i don't think u think of other peoples feels at all. »
«I think that without the description, this could easily be taken in the wrong context and I can understand why people would get upset.
Once I'd read your comments/description, I was fine with watching this and I appreciated it for what it was...a visually twisted and disturbing, but thought provoking observation with excellent direction.»
«9/11 is an extremelly touchy subject for many (myself included), but with the aid of your description (which came after a couple of perplexed reviews, the initial description being something much more vague) this worked for me adding an extra layer of context to an otherwise well made but standard torture porn flick. Feels much less exploitive (and without purpose) and more interesting once I understood where you were headed.
I agree with Johnny in that it was much less graphic than others and you can indeed do what you like but its nice to hear your thought process along side the product.»
«I thought it was abstract, thought provoking and not in the slightest bit offensive.
It was said: "You have to handle the subject with sensitivity, something that the genre lacks.'...
I disagree; "u DONT have to" do anything in art, film or music.
Sometimes its best not take shit so fuking serious...
Weird one there for sure though, as usual Shidden.»
«In fiction, you should always have a damn good reason to mention an event such as 9/11. You should have an important message to send.
In the last paragraph of the description, you claim to be doing so (sending a message) but theres a much more sensitive way to go about it. You failed at sending a message.
You shouldn't have used the exploitation style - it makes me doubt the sincerity of the message and cheapens such a horrifying event, simply making it the backdrop for a grindhouse style horror flick.
Regardless, using 9/11 as a backdrop for your bad taste/exploitation horror movie is extremely offensive. You have to handle the subject with sensitivity, something that the genre lacks.
I understand that being controversial is your shtick, but theres a place where we should draw the line between being controversial and stupid.»
