Not going into debate about it's meaning, I applaud the fact you get such a mixed bag of reactions from people with this animation. There are a few technical points which I'd like to adress. I thought our protagonist had a bit floppy hair, and some of his facial expressions were a little hard to read. A little over-exaggeration would have helped. Overall I think you did a vibrant, thought-provoking piece which reminded me of David Kronenberg and David Lynch in terms of style.
Length and pacing were excellent. It contained enough visceral horror and pornography in order to be disturbing, but it was subtle enough to look for meaning beyond shock value. One more thing: the audio part where you hear the words "worship death" were very unclear. This left me wondering what the antagonist was saying, and whether it was very relevant or intended as the insane, hostile rambling of the demon.
Don't let critisism on your themes detract you from exploring this direction more. I for one found the level of visceral intensity and sexuality to be "just about right", serving it's purpose to give voice to the protaginist's insanity, not just as easy shock tools for your viewers.
Woot! This rocked!
Being an all-time Transformers fan, I thought this was a hilarious take on every Transformer life! Funny references to internet phenomena always make me smile, and the voice acting was top notch.
I LOVED your Castle III submissions! The Lovecraftian storytelling, the invisible tentacle creatures, all topped off with a great soundtrack. You should sell the script to some manga-making firm for lulz!
Me no cry for nuthin' but this made me weep man
Whoa... one of the greatest submissions I've ever seen so far... Actually brought tears to my eyes (though I'm somewhat biased on the music, it's one of my ex's favourites), and that says enough... On a technical side, I love the way you animate, and using blurred images and even real photography (yeah I noticed that!). If the blood would be a little more convincing in some scenes (when it's on the fathers hands, for example) I'd even give you the full 10... though the puddles on the floor with the reflections in them where gorgeous... keep up the good work! With this stuff you could make a small fortune!
Review from Zero fan
Great job man ... I liked it, I know the game and it's goodie, especially since you get to fight X ... anyway, great stuff ...
I'd really like to know who the author of the soundtrack is, or what band ... that kicked ass so I gave you the full 5!!!
Always liked Extrabad's W.A.R, & he did it again!
Really cool movie. Not as humerous as Angrybot but it's hard to beat! Nonetheless, I still think W.A.R is exellent! Keg-O-Matic is a cool character and I like the nice, crisp (and clean!) graphics. The best part was the one with the burning house (the cellphone!). Keep W.A.R going, this is one of the best NG series!
