Judge 1

Positives: some good camera shots. some good edits. abba a good choice.

Improvements: confused about satirical dialogue in this category. some bizarre humor mixed into so-called dramatic narrative.

Judge 2

Positives: Hallway sequence with the mascot (there and not there) was well done. The Cat Spiderman flashback sequence in different costumes where he says this is his "last year Trick or Treating" because he's getting too old. Using the monitor of the homicidal mascot in the studio was effective.

Improvements: Film students? You guys using film? :-) When the hero is by himself and trying to move the story along, make his words a voiceover of him talking to himself as he goes about his activities (except the part when he yells out they're all dead; leave that as is). Everything was pretty brightly lit to give the feeling of building fear. Mood lightly might have made things a little more ominous.

Judge 3

Positives: Good Humor for a morbid subject Animation and special effects

Improvements: Story line could have been strengthed with some idea of "why" the killer existed in the first place. Music accents could have been stronger.
