    I'm late to the train on this one, put it off for far too long, but I think it's a damn good effort for a 23 min flick. I do think it does suffer from it's short length when it comes to character development and the plot, the acting was alright for the most part but sometimes it was obvious there wasn't a lot of experience there (the acting is still miles better than many films shown on Theatre Mode and a lot of Halloween themed films in general so congrats) but the camerwork, lighting, set design, special effects... pretty much all of the production effort was really damn good for such a short Halloween film by a crew not used to this kind of production.  I wish it was longer and I really hope you guys and gals think about making longer one-off films because this really shows how much potential there is in all of you.


    Also, I appreciate the ending so god damn much. It was refreshing and satisfying.

    Definitely entertaining. But this would have been better if it was somewhat longer. 15 minutes of character development would have been fine in an hour long video. But they crammed all the action into 8 minutes, and I feel like they could have done a lot more. It was good for what it was though, honestly.

    This was...... just okay. It looked nice and the soundtrack was great. But the story lacked a LOT... It can basically be boiled down to, "People go to cabin, are attacked by monster, some escape." There wasn't really anything to invest in. No stakes. It essentially felt like a highly produced piece of nothing. 


    But hey, that's my opinion. I'm glad people are enjoying it. Plus it was made, which is more than I can say about any short film ideas I've had.

      I'm with you, dude. It felt super rushed. What was the point of having one scene discussing Steve's dad? They never brought it up again. It didn't feel like it did anything besides being there. What was the point of having the couple argue endlessly when, the second the monster shows, one dies and the other doesn't speak his name the rest of the film? And then they had that whole thing with the town that never got truly explained, it just needed more time. Maybe if they'd done this in installments of 15-20 minutes instead of one 23 minute short movie.

      I liked that it was "different" in ways like that - like for me, at least, I wasn't expecting to just suddenly get to see the whole entire monster all at once in broad daylight. I feel like usually you just get little creepy glimpses through the trees for a long time and then when you do finally see the whole thing it's at night and you almost can't always see all the details, but having only a few hints like seeing the sheriff's death from its perspective and seeing (unless my eyes were playing tricks) a brief movement through the trees, and expecting, "Oh, we're still gonna get some hints and glimpses before we actually see it," and then just suddenly seeing it a) with no prior indication of what it looked like and b) right there in broad daylight, breaking the rules and bringing it into what is supposed to be the "safe" realm (as opposed to the night, where the bad things usually happen) made it all the more jarring and all the more realistic (as well as the killer makeup and acting).

    Devin's death scene was just a masterpiece (no offense dude lol). Never seen a horror film that made me feel that kind of intensity when someone is being stabbed or slashed. This will definitely open more opportunities for future projects. Great work!

    Framing was great, sound was great, spooks were great, but characters seemed contrived and dialogue was rough to sit through. I am the self-proclaimed biggest fan of SP7 and love you guys to death. Amazing job on almost every single aspect of the short. Devin's death was so brutal good lord. The pacing felt right as well, and for a short horror film that's not easy. 7/10 from a critic that knows absolutely nothing

    *Minor Spoilers*

    For a first short film this is not that bad, the plot felt like it was missing some things that would have only added 5-10 minutes to the whole thing, but then again production time takes longer than a few minutes. I do appreciate that they stayed accurate with the gun only having and firing six shots. My one major rag on the whole film is the antagonist which could have been something more than a classic monster and maybe had a bit of actual background instead of the 2 minutes of exposition at the end. All in all I still have some minor tweaks and ideas that I wish were there (non of which have connection to SP7 channel) mainly minor story modifications and plot development, but for what this is its ok in my book and a good start for what will hopefully be a great career for the SP7 crew

    Fuck yeah! Short, simple, and nobody was an idiot (as opposed to a lot of horror films). Loved the end! Good job SP7!

      I'd disagree about the idiot part. How about the sheriff saying "guys don't leave the cabin" and then everyone that dies, dies because they left the cabin. There was one rule, and half of them managed to break it. But capping the creepy townsperson at the end was mosdef the right play.

    Wow, I really enjoyed this.  Especially that ending.  I'm glad it didn't follow the predictable path on a lot of things.


    Also, reading these super critique-y comments, do people not realize 'shock' is something that can actually affect people and delay a response?  Maybe some of the acting could have been better but its a damn site better then most people could manage.

    This was absolutely incredible! Loved how the characters were practically the same from alternative lifestyle but in a serious setting. The character build up was insane given the short amount of time they had to do so. For the length it was this short film was unbelievable, however would have loved to see it longer and more fleshed out. Either way I hope Sugar Pine 7 is happy with their final product and get more opportunities to work on any dream projects.

    Definitely some parts that should be reworked, but all in all a great first short movie for a small production crew. Kind of expected it to be longer too.

    This was a great video. A really big change of what they usually make. Obviously there were a bit of iffy parts but it can be easily over look on the over all video. They did a well job and can't wait to see more long shorts they do, and see how much they will improve.

    I am not by any means a fan of the horror genera. This short film however was amazing. Even before the monster was revealed I was enthralled, I had cold feet and was almost sweating. The characters weren't stupid like most characters are in horror and I didn't see that ending coming. Great job, hope to see more.

    This feels like a weekends job (and it is). The creature did not look believable, you could easily see the edges of the prosthetic make-up. Everyone one is raving about the cinematography, it's apparently beautiful. Sure for a 23 minute long youtube video it's good but if I'm going to compare it to short films in general it's quite average. The directing for the more action heavy sequences are just terrible without any form of tension at all. The acting was okay at best. James was surprisingly the most capable actor on the cast. The rest struggled to convey emotion, especially Cib. I think if they would have actually taken there time to figure things out it could have been good. And also maybe cast good actors.

      From the serious attempts at acting and writing on the Sugar Pine 7 channel, I was worried going into this short film that it'd be unbearable. I can't say I'm a fan of any of the "serious" scenes or episodes of Alternative Lifestyle, especially the "Death of a Water Warrior" episode. I can definitely say they've either improved in both acting and writing a lot or they did a phenomenal job editing it to look like they have, because they're much better here than their other attempts. Though I agree, there were times in the film there was not nearly enough emotion being conveyed, i.e. Elliot being ripped to shreds and Mimi initially just looking around mildly worried (granted she did end up screaming and kicking, it was not nearly immediate enough). For what it is though, I'd say it's a nice little slasher. I'll disagree with you on the action scenes, I thought they were the most attractive part of the film in terms of choerography. Rather than a looming, intelligent sort of creature toying with its prey, this demon thing just unforgivingly rips Cib's throat out as he peeks out the door, which I'm all for in a short slasher like this. If they put effort into characterising this demon that just showed up, I feel like it could only be bad, so they were right to just introduce it and allow the viewers to draw their own conclusions, or simply just assume it's just an unforgiving evil.

    Overall it was a great film, especially for a first time short film, but I feel like the pacing was a little off, specifically how the minute you realize there's something strange going on, the creature is revealed, in broad daylight. It just felt a little odd. That being said, I loved it.

      It was cell reception. During the car ride, it was established that James lost signal, and then at the cabin, they tried calling Devin and had no signal.
