The Beast Within
Here's another cinematic I created. I started it in May but it was delayed due to a lack of time. This one is about 5 minutes long (including credits). It's a small horror cinematic about a man and his unfortunate trip in the woods. Comments/Critics would be really nice.
All credits should be at the end although I wouldn't be surprised if I forgot someone.

Pretty good. Story and indoor things were good but the outdoor terrain were a bit flat.

Thanks for the comment man. Yeah, terraining has always been one of my weakness. When you say flat do you only mean terrain height variation?

The terrain height was what i meant but also in some areas it was really empty.

one advice... when the guy leaves his car, you might want to set animation speed of car to 0 so it wouldn't bounce up and down as it does.

its very good ! it was just perfect with the hole in the wall.. but at the end where u watched the beast comming closer and closer, it ruined it a little bit.. dunno why but it was cool where he run and watched back and you could see the beast in 0.50 sec or something. 5/5

well, many criticism... at the beggining it isn't scary at all. It's just too simple. It goes that way until he enters his room (btw, he asked for a room, she gave him a key and that's all? it's weird). After that, the woman gets killed, it's nice, but you must put the wolverine siluet or shadow, or even only a scary roar. The viewer must know bit more than the victim, but in your cinematic it's not that way - he sees the wolverine and runs, but we don't see it. It's tricky to put "inside monster" sight, you must use it in the end. Or make the viewer see the monster, and make the chasing longer, showing both the wolverine and the victim.
However, it's good. I enjoyed it and the terraining was nice (not perfect, but nice enough). good job.
This inspired from Gabriel knight and the beast within by any chance?, if so i am duty bound to watch!

Thanks for the critic WerBackIII. Just to tell you though, if you watched the cinematic attatched to my post, you watched an earlier version. There's a newer version in the map ressources that has a few things modified. You can check it out if you want to see the small things I changed.
To Em!: No sorry, the title was inspired by the movie The Howling (1981), although I just looked on wikipedia to see what Gabriel Knight was and it does look cool.
Critters , that was pretty damn cool ,you really got the "Horrer Movie Feeling" right , I kinda got a fright when he woke up and looked through the hole XD

Critters, nice cinematic, I like your short stories very much. And the hole in the wall wouldn't happen to be inspired by Silent Hill?

To CMarket: Hehe yes indeed, you are a good observer.
