The pacing dragged up to the killing. The graphic extremity of the kill after suffering the lead up made me feel a little dirty, like I was watching a snuff flick or something. Kudos for gore though, it made me wince away from the screen. I would equally have liked to have seen him trip on some garbage cans just as he was moving in and land in a pile of garbage while cursing under his breath.... while she walks off in the distance maybe chatting on her phone.

If this was made into 3' it would be one of the best!!!
The coffe house sequence was way too long for me, I understand what you tried to achieve there but especially for a 6min film, it went on and on....
I also disagree with the type of knife you used....but that's just the serial killer in me....
I loved the editing and the killing frames you used..it was very realistic....as for the story...well I couldnt make out what he was saying while watching her...the sound was ...sorry but cant find another word but 'bad'....however you made a great horror/psycho thriller flick by using the typical CRAZY PSYCHO PEEPING TOM theme....it worked great for me!
Really, if it was shorter I would watch it again and again but I have to be honest...second time i skipped most of it to go to the end sequence....
ps. nice touch with the coffe shop in&out bits...the sound transitioned very well even though the levels were way off...

I've got to say your film is the most disturbing of all. Yes stalkers, I've read many cases and it's basically how it happens. Great work.

How it needs to happen is this leads up the part where the killer attacks, but we discover....The girl is a NINJA! She then whips his gross butt and stabs him repeatedly with the knife...er.....um....wait. Nice job again!

I was thinking of putting a flashback sequence showing her getting the last "Peeps" on aisle 3, that he had his eye on....

Hey greeches, good job on your film! It has so many good things going for it.
I like the slow, methodical pace leading up to the murder. I was wanted it to push forward but when it didn't it created an uneasy tension in me. I think that is a good thing in your film.
The performances by your actors were great. So subtle. Nothing unnatural at all. Such a "day in the life" feel about it. (a bad day... for her!)
The cinematography and camera work were well done. Just some outstanding imagery you have going on there.
The make-up was great. I don't know what is suppose to be wrong with that guy, but his make-up was flawless. (I tink that I've seen people like this before... I'll be a little more careful in the future!)
That was a sick knife and stabbing scene. The best that I've seen. My one criticism was that the first blow and the shot of her immediately afterwards looked like too much blood. The blood was all the way up around the collar and yet he stabbed her in the, um, uh.. the chest. This caught my eye both times that I viewed your film.
Again, great camera work and editing. It was a very simple but disturbing film. I hope that is what you were going for!
Well done! Looking forward to more of your work!

I disagree with Kohli, I kinda liked the makeup.
Pace suffered, cinematography was decent, but nothing spectacular.
The stabbing was a bit disturbing. Good sound design. I think it suffered a bit with the editing though, after the first three I could tell it wasn't the girl that was being stabbed. Maybe if you could have got a bit of movement in there? I dunno. I've never been brutally stabbed so I'm not sure how much "pain squirming" would be going on.
I liked it, but wish it had had a bigger story.

Greeches been a fan of yours since way back now.
I think I understand what you’re trying to achieve as an artist, an overall feeling, solid creepy images, and brutality.
Yeah it was a little light on script, but man I love your style.
Loved the make-up, best killing - realistic wise, that knife was wicked looking.
I felt genuinely shocked when the attack finally happened. No compromises just as it would be, vicious and bloody.
A beautiful looking gore fest for me, thanks for making it.
