So, on Friday I saw the Slender Man movie. Unlike Peter Rabbit, I didn't walk out of this one, but by Luna I wish I did.

I'm not going to hide anything, I f**king hate this movie. Like, thus far it is my pick for worst movie of the year. Peter Rabbit may have pissed me off, but at least it pissed me off because it had content, this movie pissed me off because it was a f**king slog to get through.

Anyway, what's the plot? Four girls summon the Slender Man...
And that is pretty much it. Yeah, there is a thing about trying to get rid of him, and this characters sister getting caught in the web, but let me ask one question, one question that I ask a lot when I'm reading creepypasta. Why should I care?

These characters are blank slates. I mean, I get that exposition dumps are unliked, but I would take a meaningless exposition dump than four blank slates whom half the time I can't even remember their names. I keep thinking one of them is named Ana or Abi, I thought one of them was named Robin too, and I'm unsure if one of the girl's was named Lizzie.

What could I tell you about these characters? One has an alcoholic father, one has a dead father, and one has a younger sister. That doesn't give them a personality, it just gives them family issues. One of them has a lot of awards though, so you'd think that would make her competitive, but NOPE! It literally offers nothing to her character.

"But why should we care for characters that are obviously going to die?" easy, so we can care about them getting killed. You know why we cheer when Maleficent or Jafar get defeated? Because they were slimy, evil beings. Now, imagine if they had no motivation, no extreme reactions to anything, not even a distinct voice from the rest of the cast. Would we cheer they were defeated? Or would we just go, "Oh, that happened, alright."

This movie reminds me a lot of Ringu actually, and that is an insult to Ringu. They even have someone calling the victim on the phone, only in Ringu it was creepy because their was no answer, and also no caller ID. In the American remake, there was a creepy whisper. In this movie, the girls see that the caller ID says "Unknown" and still answer the phone, this ruins what could've possibly been a good scare in the movie.

Speaking of which, this movie isn't scary. I'd say it's even less scary than Coraline, and I really don't like Coraline. The scariest thing in this movie is when Slender Man starts caressing one of the girls' face and then removes it. The feeling did not last though as the muffled screams of the character ruined it. It would have honestly been much creepier to there was no sound. What sounds creepier: Trying to scream through a gag, or I have no mouth and I must scream?

But hey, I liked The Greatest Showman, a fairly basic movie in it's own right. However, The Greatest Showman was a visual spectacle and has some truly amazing songs, even if they are a bit pandering. So, how is the cinematography of this movie? Awful.

I should give warning that this movie does have a moment with bright, rapidly flashing lights in it so be warned if you are like me and have sensitive eyes, or have epilepsy.

Other than that though, the movie really likes to have the character's faces take up half the freaking screen. It's not as bad as Lord of the Rings or Space Jam, but it's still really bad. I feel though that they did this because they were pretty much the only thing we could see in the whole movie.

The movie is bloody hard to see, and when we do get to see something, it's either not visually interesting, or obscured by obnoxious shaky cam. I swear there was a scene where the characters were sitting at a table, and the camera was shaking, or maybe that was just my head because this movie was boring.

I've seen bad movies before, I've seen movies that were dull like The Black Cauldron and Final Fantasy the Spirits Within. I've seen movies that were so bad they were funny like The Room and Tammy and the T-Rex. I've seen movies that were just generic like Duck Duck Goose, and I've seen movies that pissed me off like Peter Rabbit and Dead Poet's Society. Slender Man is a movie that pisses me off because it's so dull and boring.

They could have made an adaptation of the video game, or made it a more traditional slasher flick, or ripped of Nightmare on Elm Street instead. However, they mad a generic movie that wants to be Ringu without understanding why Ringu was a good movie.

I give this movie a 2/10, putting it straight in the garbage tier.

Well, this was fun, if you're new here I do creepypasta reviews here, you can read my previous review of The Showers Parts 4 and 5 by clicking the link.

And if you want to know my thoughts on the Slender Man itself, the link is right there.
So, I've missed last week's review, and honestly, I'm not really feeling up for today's review either.

Why? A combination of things honestly. First and foremost, I returned from my trip up to Kimberley last week. I just honestly feel so great to be home. I did not enjoy my trip at all, I would literally walk to a nearby cafe just to get away from my grandparents, who are naggy, unreasonable and quick to jump to conclusions.

I just want to relax for the next few days, and do what I want. I want to play Minecraft, listen to the Greatest Showman soundtrack, sleep. I don't really want to read a big story, especially when I'm in a foul mood.

It also doesn't help that I've been dealing with technical problems for a while now. My laptop is slow, can't really do much online without Ad Block and Pop-up Blocker, And my video editing software has been crashing more often, but it's the bottom of the bottom of the barrel. I've been meaning to get a new computer, but that's gonna take a while.

I may also be a touch mad at what's been going on in the animation reviewing community, but that's mostly been talked about near death.

This is not going to end my creepypasta reviews, at the very least I'd like to get this year finished before I consider ending them, but I will say that I am unsure of what August will be like.

But, we shall wait and see, I am the Entity of Darkness, and TTFN, Ta-ta for now.
Before I get to this review, I'm gonna quickly recap my thoughts on the previous parts.
Parts one and two were great, loved them both. Each had their own point of interest and were more than just one-trick ponies.
Part three was a slog, it seemed to ramble on a little, but it had a few good moments.

So, let's go to part four!

I'm very glad to say that, I enjoyed this part. Now they have finally entered The Showers location.

There was actually a lot to like about this one. I remember in my review of "Windows" that I complimented the idea of the creepypasta, of reliving a childhood nightmare as an adult. I think The Showers Part 4 is kinda like that, except done better.

I also really did enjoy the conversations between the narrator and his friend, with the narrator not even wanting to be back in Nebraska and his friend calling him out for being a liar and a coward. I really enjoyed the argument between them.

I also loved the thoughts going through his head, the narrator is not sure exactly what this place is or even if it really is real.

after the slog that was Part 3, I'm very glad this part turned out well.

However, there is still one more part to get through.

Part 5:

Well, that's a way to end this story...

Well I don't think Part Five was as good as Part Four, I think it was still pretty good. This part definitely has more tension and panic than the previous parts. Most of this part is basically one long action scene, which is cool if you like reading that, and I guess since people like me, who much prefer character and setting than action, had four whole parts of I personally prefer, I feel as though I don't have much of a right to complain.

The ending itself is... bittersweet. The narrator and his friend, as usual, part ways and the narrator finally seeks help for his problems. He also basically disowns the whole story, encouraging other people to retell it and put their own spin on it. I'm not fond of this part really, but then again I stopped writing fanfiction years ago so...

There is another word I've never heard of before in here too; "Obfuscate".
Verb; to render obscure, unclear or unintelligible, or to bewilder.

Hm...

So, my thoughts altogether?

Over all, the whole story is pretty good. I think my favourite would have to be either Part two or Part four, Part two had the advantage in it being a first time for the narrator, and by extension the reader, to really explore this location. Part four on the other hand, has the narrator revisiting this place and going through all of those emotions.

Part three was my least favourite though, it was a bit of a slog to read through and offered pretty little.

individually, I would say that Part 3 gets a 3/10, part 4 gets an 8/10, and part 5 gets a 6/10.
As a whole, I think a 
7/10 is a fair score.

And if you haven't caught up, you can also read my review of the first two parts here: The Showers Creepypasta Review

And one more special thanks to :iconthesynthetic: for alerting me to the existence of these parts.
Well... Holy shit.

So, last year I reviewed the creepypasta "The Showers" a two-part pasta that told differents parts of a larger story. I thought it ended with the second part, but as it turns out, there are now five parts to this story.

Well, I wanted to cheap out with SpongecryII.AVI, so I may as well take this as punishment. Anyway, a special thanks to :iconthesynthetic: for notifying me of this.

So, let's begin with part 3!

you know what made the first two parts a good read? Although they were both long stories, they each had a seperate PoI (Point of Interest) to keep me invested. I love hearing old ghost stories and rumours and I like the idea of exploring creepy places, Hell I want to explore old abandoned amusement parks myself.

With that being said, Part three to me, kind of drags a little.

With all that being said I do enjoy the first part of this story. I like how the narrator talks about his current relationship with his story and the moments when he and his partner are talking about suicide. Small parts can really add to a story. I also like a lot of the dialogue between in the story, it's a small touch but it really does make the story seem more... human, in a way.

That being said though, personally I struggle to find any interest in this part. It's never good for me to force myself through a creepypasta, or anything for that matter, but honestly, this is kind of boring to me.

This is dangerous levels of just being set-up for the next part. Which, is not good. The only reason I did force myself through the whole thing was so I could get to the ending and hopefully understand the next part. While I enjoyed the first two parts, I really struggled with this one, not because it's bad, it's the same quality of writing, maybe a little bit better, but I personally just don't find it very interesting.

No, I don't think I'd read this again, but I'm gonna withhold on giving this part a rating until I review part five. Suddenly I'm looking back to my BEN Drowned review, oof.

Anyway, hopefully next week, I'll get to part four and if I can, part five. If not, that will be the week after.

Also, feel free to read my previous review of SpongecryII.AVI if you haven't.

Or you can read my review of The Showers parts one and two.

Oh, almost forgot, if you want to read the story for yourself: <Link Here>
What the HELL? I wanted to get a quick and dirty review out before I went on my trip next week, so I went to a creepypasta that I figured I was gonna despise.
Oh yeah, um... there may not be a review next week.

What did I get instead? A creepypasta that I kinda liked!

WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TOO? RIVERS FLOWING RED WITH BLOOD AND YELLOW WITH URINE, EARTHQUAKES, VOLCANOES, HURRICANES AND FOREST FIRES. HIGHWAY ROBBERIES AND POLITICAL ASSASSINATIONS, DOGS AND CATS HAVING INTERCOURSE TOGETHER, MASS HYSTERIA. LIONS AND TIGERS AND BEARS, FNGR GIVING PRAISE TO MR ENTER! THE END IS NEAR!

Okay, okay, let's calm down.

So, a long time ago, I reviewed the creepypasta "Spongecry.AVI". I thought it was awful, boring and cliche with nothing worth reading. Now, just like when I found another crap pasta had a sequel "Sonic.EXE", I had to review the sequel, even if I had nothing to say about it, I had to review it.

"Sonic.EXE Round 2" was shit, so I had lower expectations for this one... or... Zero expectations are low expectations right?

Maybe it was the low expectations, but this, this wasn't awful. I'd dare say, it wasn't even bad. No I wouldn't say it's good, but if there was a creepypasta that legitimately surprised me as a creepypasta reviewer, it was this one.

So, after the events of the first creepypasta, there is now a whole mystery afoot. Already, a point of interest that isn't "here is an episode that nobody ever saw and it's super scary!", that wears out it's welcome. However, a mystery, especially about small details that seem off, that is bound to get me interested.

Now, I am going to admit, this creepypasta is STUPID. They go to the police to examine the footage, and they know everything about it, and then someone just happens to find the second half of the episode online, come on, I don't think the writer was even trying with this one.

The "episode" itself is... actually different. I doubt many of you will want to check it out because I have stated I liked "less favoured" creepypasta in the past (such as "The Land Before Time"), so I won't spoil what the "episode" is, but I did not expect that.

But that does bring me to one thing. Is this really a good creepypasta?
No... Kinda... Maybe... I don't know.

I think I was mostly caught off guard by the mystery and the "episode". Which I did like those aspects of the pasta, but then you have the contrivance that isn't even hidden, or maybe it was supposed to be, which in that case that's just sad. To be honest, I am willing to put up with more stupid and contrived plots and story moments for the sake of parts I enjoy, to be fair it does kind of come with the hobby of animation.

So, I really don't know how to recommend this one, maybe it was a fluke that caught me off guard, or maybe it's actually good I don't know.
So, you know what I'm gonna do, I'm gonna to give it a 6/10 on my recommendation scale, putting it into the "Recommend Zone".

And if you haven't read my previous review, it was of Aesthetically Pleasing

Or you can read my Spongecry.AVI review if you missed that.
I don't think I have ever read such an interestingly strange creepypasta like this. Don't get me wrong, I've read my share of bizarre creepypasta, but none have really left me with such an interesting feeling of... "Huh?"

The first half of the creepypasta is pretty good, talking about how people say they want "natural beauty" but usually salivate and lust after processed "Factory beauty". Off topic but still a tad relevant, when I took fashion design in High School, I actually went out of my way to not look up what I call "Catwalk fashion" preferring to mostly focus on casual and street wear. I just think catwalk fashion is really boring. Essentially, my point in saying that is, yes, I agree.

Hmm... that may have been the most unnecessary tangent I ever went on.

Anyway, I can definitely agree about the whole, "Natural beauty is dead" idea, because my first girlfriend felt like Gollum without her make-up on, so it's an ideal that is sadly becoming mainstream. Personally I think we put too much emphasis on beauty instead of actual qualities that would make for better relationships. I think we as humans have built a society that straight up goes against our most basic of animalistic behaviors.

Wow, I'm getting really off topic...

Anyway, the first part is good, and the first bit of the second part is also good. It's basically the narrator revealing her true self to her boyfriend, and he is horrified. He tries to escape, only to learn that all women look like that and gets torn to pieces.

Yeah, the ending is kind of the strange bit for me. I like the fact that it didn't go the route of "She killed him to keep her secret", which is a huge point to this story. I just don't know about the, all the women look the same part of the story.

I get that there is something said about society and it's standards of female beauty, but I don't know, I feel like the story may have been stronger if most of the women weren't monsters in masks and still killed the guy, or would that make this story "Feminist propaganda". I don't know, I just feel like this story could be stronger.

In some respects, I probably should have waited to make this review, but with amount of weeks I've already taken off this year, I'm not going to miss another one if I can help it. So, I may end up giving this one a re-review somewhere down the line. As it stands right now, I really don't know what to think of this one, it's good, but I don't really know what to make of it other than that.

Probably doesn't help that I've been thinking of "The Invisible Man" while writing this review.

Oh well, I give this pasta a 6/10, but score is subject to change.

With a score that is subject to change, you may want to give the pasta a read yourself, Link Here

If you missed it, my previous review was Stargazer

Or, you can read a classic review of mine, Licking
Remember all the way back in 2014 when I reviewed the creepypasta Jeremy's Broken? I should re-review that one actually... Anyway, I mention that because, Stargazer is that creepypasta done right.

For those of you who don't know, Stargazer was a 1970's heavy metal song by Rainbow, it's often said to be one of the best songs by Dio, yes, Ronnie James, Black Sabbath, Holy Diver, Dio.

Stargazer is actually one of my all-time favourite songs, I love the instrumental work, especially that awesome guitar solo in the middle, and Dio's vocals are, as can be expected, spot on. However, what I really like the most about the song is, amazingly, the story. The song tells the story of slaves building a wizard a massive tower, of course similar to the idea of Hebrew slaves building the pyramids.

So, what do you do with the story? Expand on it! Which is what the writer does in this creepypasta.

We follow one of the slaves, Nahsut, as he is forced from his home to build a massive stone tower. We're also given the backstory of why he and other slaves are there, and we really get to see how cruel the wizard can be. I'll admit, in the song, I could see the wizard as cruel, but never so far as to brand people and be openly abusive.

Much like Jeremy's Broken, this pasta has lines in it that were taken right out of the song, and I think they were much more cleverly used than in Jeremy's Broken. Thinking back to that one, it was kind of lazy the way the writer used the song lyrics, and while one could make the argument against this pasta as well, I would make the counter argument that there is enough original work here to pardon the issue.

While the pasta does skip over a lot of death, usually letting them have the broad explanation of "dehydration, starvation, accidents, or the relentless whips of daeva", but there is one death that is described. It's pretty bad, the character is essentially whipped to death and it's uncomfortable to think about. Aside from that, the story isn't really so much focused on the deaths as it is the mistreatment, and we really do get an idea of what Nahsut is going through.

If I had any complaints, which I do, it would be the ending. Not that the ending is bad, but there is something about it that kind of tarnishes it. At the ending, Nahsut begins to wonder about the family he left behind. Personally, I think that knowing what he left behind would help emphasize the tragedy of his situation, while putting it at the end would retroactively make his situation worse as we finish the story. Honestly though, I can let it slide, it's not an ending that completely ruins the pasta.

Aside from that, this was pretty good. While I much prefer the song, I can say that this creepypasta is still good. It's probably one of the few creepypasta to actually have a happy ending, and it surprisingly works. Barring that, the lead is sympathetic, the villain is disgusting enough to love-to-hate, the nods to the song are nice and all in all, I really do like the expanse upon the song.

Overall, I give it an 8/10. It is the rainbow rising!

I... I... WHAT THE FUCK!!

So... this is a fascinating creepypasta that I kinda like, but also really hate at the same time. It's like D&D to me, except I don't have two sets of dice for this.

The Coin and the Clock is one of the most confusing stories I have ever read while doing creepypasta reviews, which is why this review is a week late. Super late apologies for that too. The Coin and the Clock is pretentious and nihilistic, but at the same time I find it neither of those things.

So, the creepypasta is about two guys sitting at a table, with one guy trying to learn algebra and the other trying to show him something about the universe and modified behavior I guess. Again, rule of thumb, if I have to use "I Guess" in the plot summary, you need to simplify your story. However, this time it's not to big of an issue. For a complex idea and story, when you boil it down to the bare basics, it's surprisingly simple. I would have liked it to be easier to understand, but in that case I should simply just... How you say... "Get Good".

A part of me is intrigued by the conversation and story of this pasta, another part of me however, is bored to freaking tears. It's a combination of the idea being interesting, but not enough to the point where I really follow it. If that doesn't make sense to you, let me try to explain it in a different way.
-
So, this creepypasta to me, is kinda like learning to splice DNA. I would love to understand how to do it, mostly so I could shoot fire and bees out of my hands. However, as I have no invested interest in DNA or biology beyond a cellular level, (Or even at the cellular level to be honest), I would never be able to do it. In terms of this story, I'm interested in the ideas present enough to stick around, but not enough to be invested. If that still doesn't make sense I'm going to have to apologize, that is the simplest I can put it.

The pasta does present ideas of humanity and whether we truly are moving forward as a species. As a species we do kinda frown upon staying in the past and moving forward don't we?

There is also a bit about how small people are in the grand scheme of the universe. I always hated that line of thinking, because yes, in the grand scheme of life the universe and everything, we don't really matter. However, we don't live on a "Grand scheme" style of life, we makes our choices and plans in the moment based on what works for us and the people we are directly affecting, not based on how it affects some species thousands of light-years away.

Sorry, I just don't like that line of thinking. Anyway, I'm not going to much into this pasta because I really don't want to spoil it for anybody who wants to read it.

As a whole, I think it is a good creepypasta, it is interesting, and interesting enough to keep me reading, but not really enough for me to be properly invested.

I think I'll throw it a bone and give a 7/10, give a read and see what you think.

So, this is... interesting.

I typically try to avoid shorter stories. Very rarely do I ever have much to really say about a story that fits on one page. However, this does lead to an interesting point of discussion, what are the benefits to a shorter story?

Going a bit off-topic, as I also do video reviews of animated works, I write a lot of scripts myself. I try to keep my scripts short, mostly because I want to make my point and move on. However, I see merit in much longer scripts, allowing other critics to analyze and further explain there thoughts on why something works or doesn't.

A story can be similar, a shorter story gets the important things across, where as a larger story can get the details all down. Both have their merits and their issues. A longer story can risk losing the reader's interest and boring the reader into stopping, where a shorter story can risk the reader missing most of it and it's possible meaning.

A lot of this comes back to the "Point of Interest" I keep bringing up. This PoI is the reason readers stick to a longer story or come back to a shorter story.

I think this is a fascinating creepypasta because, to me anyway, there is no singular point of interest. While the title caught my eye, I can't really narrow down one point of interest for me.

This would be a bad thing in a longer story, however, as this story is only three paragraphs long, this actually works in the pastas favour.

I do have to say though, each separate paragraph is interesting on their own. The first one gives us the narrative, the narrator likes lilies, but not just any lily, the most beautiful of lilies. The way the words are written, you can tell that something isn't right with the narrator.

Then there is talk of the lilies screaming and bleeding and that is when you have to wonder, is this story really about flowers?

I also do have to compliment the writing, each paragraph is of a fair size to get the ideas across. No paragraph exceeds four lines, but none are shorter than three either so, it's fine. There's also a word I've never heard before in here, I like when writers do that, even if it may come off as a bit pretentious. Anyway, the word is "recherché", I wonder what it means...
...
Rare, exotic or obscure...

Peche Péché

Oh well, I thought this was a pretty good story. It's pretty short, but I don't think that's such a deal breaker, everything else is pretty good.

I give a 7/10 on my recommendation scale.

And of course, if you wish to read the story, you can do so here: <Link>

Or you can read my classic review of The
So umm.... yeah, I've been meaning to do a re-review of this one for a while. But since 2018 has to be the worst year of online personalities, I had other things to discuss. Since I'm not in the mood to go digging for another creepypasta, I'll compromise and re-review an oldie.

So, if you haven't read my original review, I wouldn't recommend it, I really don't like the old review. However, if you really want to read it: demo reel lost episode creepypasta review

So, is this still a good creepypas-no. No it is not.

I find it kind of amusing how abruptly the pasta begins. It's has no build up, no introduction to the narrator, all it is, is just "This is what Demo Reel was, not many people liked it." The narrator doesn't even say anything about their own thoughts on the series or Nostalgia Critic in general. For all I know, Misanthro Pony could be writing this pasta, except he might have made it entertaining.

Then there is a toss out line that just separates the "introduction" from the actual pasta. It is literally a two-word sentence that does only that purpose.

The pasta itself is bland and uninteresting. Legit, I wasn't even skimming the paragraphs half-way through the damn thing. It doesn't even do much with the scenario it has, there is a demon in the equipment, that is it. There is nothing about the scenario that makes this story interesting. The only point of interest in this pasta is the fact that it is a creepypasta based on an internet series, which is not an appeal that lasts.

Sorry for the brief review this week, I've not been feeling well emotionally. I am also working on a new video review, so I want to try and get that done before July.

Have a good week everyone.
So, yesterday I wanted to discuss the #CreepyLeaks controversy. I held off thinking there was more information than I got, but now I feel as though I know what to say and what I want to say.

I think I should first discuss why I'm doing this, and unlike something like #Changethechannel or #ToonGate which I delegated to a small part of different posts. While I am not a big name, or even a known name in the creepypasta community, as someone who reviews creepypasta, I feel as though I should say something on this matter.

For those of you who aren't aware, some big names in the CP Community like MrCreepypasta and Vincent Vena Corva have had a few allegations thrown their way, ranging from small things like general incompetance, to large things like crowdfunding fraud and sexual harassment. Needless to say, if this is true, than this is really horrible.

An entire document was compiled by Creepypasta author Slimebeast and if you want to look at it yourself: docs.google.com/document/d/1P5…

As for my thoughts on the matter, I think they mirror my thoughts for #Changethechannel and #ToonGate as well. There needs to be a place for open communications, and the accused should, if these allegations are true, earn some for of punishment.

If the accused really are guilty and the allegations are true, I hope that the situation can be resolved without more drama.

I'm gonna leave you with a couple videos about the situation, thank you for your time.

I was going to talk about something else, but something tells me I should wait this one out.

Update soon!
Sometimes I have to wonder why some creepypasta are good. Then again considering last week, I may just be getting lower standards, but I'm feeling better so let's get on with the review.

You know, the more I think about it, the more this story brings me back to my childhood, and the horrific nightmare I've always had. We've all had "The Monster" as a kid, the reason we dreaded going to bed. I actually had two monsters, one was a tarantula in my blanket (Don't ask), and the other I called "Motherhook" it was a black skeletal being surrounded in a red aura that would appear anywhere. It appeared in pictures, my GameBoy, the floor, even in my god damn lightswitch. That was my recurring nightmare and the big reason I hated going to bed as a child.

So what does any of this have to do with the creepypasta? Well, the story is about someone reliving their childhood nightmare as an adult. Immediately, an interesting concept. Adults and children think about and react to things differently. So it's interesting to see what kind of reactions a grown up would have to seeing a nightmare that they never really conquered.

However, what kind of ruins the creepypasta is that, the writer seems to make it more than a nightmare. At the beginning of the story the narrator says he was diagnosed with "Hypnogogia", which is an actual thing from my research, but then again I do barest of bare bones research so take that for what it's worth. Towards the end of the story, the creature is doing things like, lifting the window and removing boards from the windows. I might be a bit more forgiving to the absence of vague if the creature was described differently.

I'm going to be honest, I hate the description of the creature in this one. To me, it checks off the generic boxes of creepypasta spook; Pale skin? Check! Blank eyes? Check! Weird Non human features? Check! Bony Complexion? Check!

The monster design is pretty generic for a creepypasta. It's like you took Slenderman, Eyeless Jack and The Rake, and mashed them together. The description of the eyes is what gets to me though.
"its eyes just two gaping holes filled with an endless darkness."

That's just stupid.

On top of that something about the writing just doesn't do it for me, I don't know, maybe it's just that this may be the writers first story, but the writing seems odd to me. Maybe that's just me I dunno.

Honestly though, I do kinda like the story it tells, I do wish it to be a bit more on the vague side though. I like a story that can leave the reader guessing. I also wish that the monster had a more interesting description, or maybe for it to be left more in the shadows. However, I should focus on what is there instead of what isn't, and what is there is pretty alright, not great, but not terrible.

I kinda want to see a creepypasta with this kind of similar concept again, an adult reliving or facing a childhood nightmare they never truly got over. It's a good sounding concept, I'd like to see others write something amazing with it.

As for this, I think it's worth a read or two, so I give it a 6/10. Window, shut!

Yeah, last week was not fun for me, but I'm back, feeling better and as a whole, doing alright for myself. Especially since my last review of Dirtgirlworld

And I really need to talk about them.

I think it's going to obvious to say that, there isn't going to be a new Creepypasta Review this week. I'm gonna say it now though, this is all because of personal issues that I've been dealing with.

I think a good place to start is with the small stuff, the stuff that can, and has, blown over but still helped add up. So, let's talk about #changethechannel and why it has been affecting me, despite me never even having spoken to anyone on Channel Awesome. I, much like many others, was inspired to start reviews after watching the Nostalgia Critic, but it goes a bit deeper than that.

When I was younger, I was usually yelled at for things that, I thought were beyond my control, things have changed now, but for the longest time I always felt as though, it was wrong to be mad and wrong to make mistakes. Of course, I don't think this now, and a lot of that was because of the Nostalgia Critic. Those videos taught me that it was okay to be mad, it was okay to fuck up, but it was better to be passionate, especially when you'r mad or mess up. I don't think I'd even be a creator if I wasn't watching Nostalgia Critic back in the day.

I want to state that, I'm not siding with CA or Mike Michaud, I am not mad at the former contributors that have left, quite honestly I'm glad for them. I'm just stating why this controversy has, in a way, brought my spirits down. A lot of who I am as a reviewer, creator and even person was because of the NC, it's not easy to hear things like this.

But that is quite small, especially compared to some of the personal issues I've been dealing with.

I guess the other reason I'm feeling down about CA is because, I am a very emotional person, like more so than most people. While I try not to think in extremes, my emotions usually do come in extremes. While I do have normal reactions to some things, most of the time I get overly-emotional over small things. For example, I'm  not just angry, I explode with rage, I'm not just happy, I'm giddy and literally singing. I'm not just upset, I can get full on depressed, and for the most part that has been what I've been dealing with, waves of just not being happy.

While I wouldn't say I'm really depressed, I do have issues with brief bouts of it, which have gone up to and included thoughts of taking my own life.

It's not that I don't have people to confide in, I have many good friends that are willing to lend an ear, I find myself thinking though that I bother them a lot, especially when I talk about my problems. No matter how much they tell me I'm not bothering them, I still feel as though that is all I do. It also doesn't help that I have a pretty low opinion of myself, which leads me to question why I have these people in my life in the first place.

Because of my low opinion of myself, taking better care of myself has become difficult, as many times I don't feel as though I should treat myself better than I am. I've tried to monitor my eating, and I'm currently trying an exercise routine. I hope that one can stay for longer, I can't afford to have doubts when it comes to my health.

That's the overview too, I'm not really going to go into things like the break-up I went through in December, that I'm still kind of going through. Also not going into the things about myself I hate, but that can all be a different post.

I just needed to make a post about my troubles, it has been kind of rough sometimes, but as a whole, I'm still going. Maybe things will get better, I may be grasping at a thread of optimism here, but maybe things will.

Until next week, I am the Entity of Darkness, and I hope you'll forgive me for not having a review up this week.
You know, I love PhantomStrider, I like his videos and he seems like a good person. So for his sanity, I hope he never reads this garbage.

No I have never seen Dirt Girl World outside of his videos, to be honest, it doesn't look like anything special, just a pre-schooler's cartoon with a different theme. Then again, I spent money on three separate Thomas the Tank Engine VHS Tapes so I doubt I'm in much position to judge.

Speaking of which, why was it a massive trend to make crappy creepypastas out of innocent enough children's shows? For whatever reason, be it Thomas, Max and Ruby, SpongeBob, MLP, Hell if you look on the Wayback machine, you'll find creepypasta for fucking Kirby Right Back at Ya, an anime that was so kid friendly that it makes god damn Hello Kitty look ugly. The trend mostly seems to have died, thank whatever deity you want, but there is always some archive to be aware of.

So yeah, this is a Dirt Girl World creepypasta, and do I even need to say it's bad?

I'll give it this, it's short, but that doesn't excuse being complete and utter crap.

It's your generic lost episode where someone darkify's and edges up something relativity innocent. What else do I have to say? Well, this may be one of the few creepypastas based on pre-school cartoons to feature mutilation! Because the character designs weren't horrifying enough, we now get to have the image of one of them screaming her lungs out while having her hands cut off. Pleasant I know </sarcasm>.

It also features the "I can't turn down the volume or turn off the TV" cliche that I really cannot stand, so that's a point against this pasta.

But you know, I think there is one thing I really don't like about this one. The narrator calls the channel staff. It sounds like a smart move, but this is where the writer would normally reveal that something went wrong, someone was hacking the station, Captain Midnight went berserk (Okay I SERIOUSLY need to stop with these obscure and oddball references), but no, the writer gives us nothing of the sort, making the only purpose of the call to be a vague questioning of the narrator's sanity.

This, this is awful. I can't even lump this with the genericly bad lost episode pastas, this is worse than that Thomas the Tank Engine creepypasta from last year.

Buh... you know, this year has really been becoming negative. I feel that has been reflected in my reviews a little bit. I mean, so far the best creepypasta I reviewed was The Chandelier, which I criticized heavily for it's use of twist ending. I'm not going to take a break, but I'm going to try and find actual good creepypastas to review. I don't want to make this year another 2015, so let's give this crap a swift kick in the ass, and let's move on.

I give this garbage a 1/10. It set a new low standard for bad lost episode creepypasta.

And if, for whatever strange reason, you want to read this trash: web.archive.org/web/2012102108…

Have at 'er!

Or, you can check out my previous review of Run Across the Desert

Or my classic review of Thomas and the Children
...How many creepypasta am I gonna read where the first paragraph is all I need to dislike them?

Let's talk about dialogue. Dialogue is without a doubt, one of the most important parts in telling a character driven narrative. Dialogue communicates ideas between characters and to the audience, and it is important that the dialogue is clear in who is speaking and what is being communicated. Of course, this is not to say you can't have a story without dialogue, but that's not a discussion around this creepypasta.

The big problem with this creepypasta is that, the majority of the story is told through dialogue, which is fine, that is how stage productions and cinema mostly work, the communication of these ideas through some form of dialogue that moves the story along. The problem with this story is that, it's done poorly.

So, what is the story? I couldn't tell you really, there are these Arab men who were following this woman who was running across the desert and she left a straight line of footprints, then there is this other person being told all this information and he may not be human and... Okay, a general rule of thumb is, when it comes to your main plot, if you need an "I guess" to be placed in there somewhere, you fail!

Now, the writing is generally what makes or breaks a creepypasta for me, and in this case, it really breaks the creepypasta.

Most of the story is told through one of the Arab's perspectives, and for some odd reason, the person's thoughts are spliced in between segments of dialogue. Normally, what a writer does something like this, they do something to convey the idea that this isn't something the character is saying, usually adding in "They thought" at the end or middle of the sentence, or maybe going further and putting the thoughts in a different font or text style. Kinda like what I do when I'm splicing in pieces of other creepypasta into my reviews. However, the writer for this creepypasta made the odd choice of putting asterisks at the start and end of a thought.

Now, I can't speak for everyone here, but when I see a asterisk before a sentence, I tend to think that the character is speaking in a different language, not that the character's thoughts are being directly given to the reader. It created a confusing problem before I realized that these were, most likely, the character's thoughts.

The first couple of paragraphs describing the scene also bother me. They're written as though you would read them like a poem, but when you read them in the paragraph style they're in, the weird word choices and poor punctuation really do stand out more.

So, this was pretty bad. I wouldn't say it's really terrible, but that really is only because I've read worse. On it's own, I don't think it's really great, the writing is poor, the dialogue is bad and the story is a bit confusing. The sad thing is that I kind of like the idea of this creepypasta, exploring ideas of omens to other cultures. I think, if you cut out and rewrote the stuff about "Perhaps they weren't human" and make the thoughts more clear that they're not being said aloud and you'd have a half-way decent creepypasta.

As is though it gets a 3.5/10, not worth it.

And if you haven't read it yet, my previous review was on Abandoned Servers

Or you can read my classic review on A Strange Night in the City of Angels
Well, because yesterday was Easter, it doesn't feel right to write a review this week. However, I do have something else to give you.

Released at the start of the month, I give you, my review of my least favourite SpongeBob episode!



Creepypasta reviews will return next week.
Outside of animation, writing, music, history and baking, video games is one of my favourite hobbies. I remember the first video game I ever played, kinda. It was either the second or third Spyro game, I think it may have been the second. Anyway, I have a large interest in games, as someone who LOVES the art of storytelling, video games are a fascinating art form for me. The stories they tell are not only interactive, but they can be a lot more clever than the way a movie or book tells it's story. When it comes to story, BioShock and Portal 2 are my two favourite games, but I also enjoy games like SMITE, Stardew Valley, Gauntlet Dark Legacy and Rocket League, which aren't big on story, but super fun and addicting.

I'm telling you all of this because, I'm not really an online player. So the idea of abandoned game servers is not an idea I can relate easily to.

But with that said I enjoyed creepypasta that I had zero ways to relate to, so how does this one fare?

About as well as Steam Greenlight... is that a relevant joke to make?

Whatever, this creepypasta sucks, but it actually starts out pretty well. The game the narrator described was not scary, but still odd and not something they can get their mind off.

Then we get to the latter three quaters of the creepypasta, that is probably a low-balled esimate, but it sounds about right.

Have any of you read my original review of Mortal Kombat.EXE? The creepypasta that I said was the worst that I reviewed in 2014? Well, this kind of reminds me of that, in fact, it kind of has similar cliches to that.

I hated Mortal Kombat.EXE because of these stupid cliches, and this creepypasta uses some of the same.

There is the cliche of the game knowing your face without there being any conceivable way for the game or programmer to know your face. This is a stupid cliche because it lacks the most basic of logic. Everything has to run on some form of logic, and in fiction you always have an easy out, but nobody wants to write in demonic magic because although that is logical, it's also really stupid. Here, there is some kind of doppelganger and there is no explanation as to how or why it exists, it just does, again, please reason and logic!

Then you have the cliche of seeing pictures of horrid atrocities you can't get rid of. This cliche has more logic to it than it did in Mortal Kombat.EXE, but even here it has little logic, and little reason to be outside of "OMG SUPAH SCRY!!! PLZ B SCRD!!1!".

Mirrors, because why the hell not, we have entities that can see you from the screen that aren't explained at all so let's have a weakness be not explained, if it is the weakness.

Oh, and there is also a bloody forest... I have had it with creepypasta that rip-off Sonic.EXE! Rule of thumb, if you're creepypasta even makes me think about Sonic.EXE, it's crap on the spot.

It's all a shame though, the writing of this creepypasta is pretty good. It's detailed enough to allow a reader to visualize the settings. Unfortunately, even this comes with an asterix the size of Montreal. A few of the details are described as being like something else, like trees being like Nightmare Before Christmas, this is just kind of lazy, but it's not the worst thing about this pasta.

The stupid cliches are the worst thing about this pasta, and that really does suck because the story and writing are not bad. The story kind of reminds me of Herobrine myths, except done well. With that said, the cliches are annoying and stupid, and they really bring this pasta down. I do not really suggest reading it, but I can't really say it's as bad as something like "Sonic.EXE".

I give a 4/10, it's only somewhat better in quality to Sonic.EXE.

If you have yet to read it, my previous review was on Survival Guide

Or you can read my classic review of Mortal Kombat.EXE although be warned, it is kind of a crap review.
Yeah, that's a new one, I've put "Creepypasta" in commas that I use as quotation marks before when I reviewed "Pattycakes" which was technically a fanfiction. But both "Creepypasta" and "Review" has not happened to my memory.

This is because, this really isn't going to be a typical kind of review, this is really an overtly-long comment on this "Creepypasta Survival Guide".

Now, I know there is a "horror movie survival guide", I've never read it, but I assume it's kind of the same thing except with horror movie tropes and references instead of creepypasta cliches and references.

I'm serious, this guide makes references to many, MANY other creepypasta. Typically my rule of thumb is, DO NOT DO THIS! it usually makes you're story look worse because it reminds the reader that they could be reading another, most often better, creepypasta. The thing is that, this gets a pass because it's obviously not trying to say, "Here is this story you know that is obviously fake, and now here is my story", it is what it says it is, a survival guide.

The guide makes reference to creepypastas like, Red with White, those lousy lost-episode pastas with file extensions in the title, BEN Drowned, Smiledog, Dolly Molly, Happy Appy, Rap Rat, Cupcakes, Jeff the Killer, Slenderman, WHO WAS PHONE?, Kuchisake-Onna, Normalpornfornormalpeople, and many others. Seriously, many of these rules made me chuckle because of the reference. The guide even referenced the "WWF: Canceled in your House PPV" creepypasta, I bet some of you didn't even know there was a WWF Creepypasta, it's... kind of crap really.

There are 144 total rules and many of them provide handy tips on how to survive in your next creepypasta experience. For example, the first tow rules are about mirrors, and not just don't break them. Rule 34, is about finding VHS Tapes, Rule 52 warns against buying second hand TVs, Rule 100 disappointing me because it warns against abandoned amusement parks, and I've always wanted to explore one. Rule 104 is a general rule for everything, Rules 108 to 111 are about finding the Holders, Rule 119 is the truth and rule 126 is basically natural instinct, if it bleeds it can die.

Typically, there are only two things one should really do in a situation akin to most creepypastas, run or fight, and I'm personally fond of running. Keep in mind I'm a general pacifist that tends no to carry weapons on me unless required to.

You know what I would love to see, a horror story or creepypasta where the narrator does everything right, and then still gets killed. Nothing is scarier than a killer that can catch and kill the competent, except maybe a government that caters to the stupid, CANADA!

I can say that, I live there.

Survival Guide is not really a creepypasta per say, but overall, it's a fine read. I feel like this is a better list of cliches on the wiki, than the Wiki's actual cliche page. Then again, that page has little actual presentation outside of a picture of a lion face-palming so, points to this page.

While I can't recommend this as a creepypasta, I still recommend checking it out as a wiki page, so in that respect I give a 7/10.

Next time will be a return to the real creepypastas.

Anyway, if you missed my last review it was on The Chandelier

Or you can read my classic review of The Prophecy of Zarah

And if you want to read the original post, you can do so here
It's no secret that critics and journalists make mistakes, everyone from MrEnter to Jim Sterling makes mistakes, to error is human. Of course, since 2014 I've made over one-hundred reviews and other posts and made many, many mistakes in a large amount of them, if not all of them. So, like a good critic would, I am going to make this post about what I consider to be, ten of my worst mistakes. Keep in mind that if I miss any, I would like for any of you to bring them to my attention, I can only improve if I get beaten down first.

With that said, here are ten mistakes I've previously made that I am now going to fess up to. Yes, I did intentionally make that title super long, because why not? I want to have some fun with this.


10. Spelling and Grammatical Mistakes (All of them)

I'm going to get this one out of the way first. It's pretty embarrassing when I'm criticizing a written media, and still making a bunch of spelling and grammatical mistakes. Granted, most of them are minor, but that is another problem, I am an actual writer myself, so I shouldn't BE making these mistakes.

The problem is that I rely on spellcheck a lot, and the problem with spellcheck is that it only detects improper spelling and incorrect grammar, not really when you're using the wrong word or when you placed an apostrophe where one shouldn't be.

The mistakes I make are easy to miss, but once I see them, I can never un-see them. Sometimes it's missing the "r" in "for", typing "is" when I meant "if", or making improper contractions like typing in "let's" as in "Let us" when I should have typed in "lets" as in "allows". Being honest, this is mostly just me being blind to my wording. I do look over each review I make, but because the brain is weird, it doesn't register when I make a mistake unless I really focus on it.

It's embarrassing that I criticize creepypasta so heavily about their spelling and grammar, when I myself have shit spelling and grammar. This is not because I failed English, it's mostly because the mistakes are so small I barely see them until it's too late.

I should also mention that I'm not going to update all of my reviews to get rid of the spelling mistakes, not because I don't want to fix them, but mostly because I don't want to flood my watcher's notifications with over one-hundred journal entry updates when I don't make any other changes.

9. Not mentioning the cult (Sonic.EXE Round 2)

When I did my review of the creepypasta "Sonic.EXE Round 2" I had many complaints about it, but one complaint I had but didn't go into any detail into was the cult.

As far as the cult goes, this is all I mention about it in that review: "In fact, I'm fairly certain that this wants to be a Candle Cove spin-off. I think this because they keep going on about a cult and all the victims and conspiracy. That sounds like something I would read in a spin-off of Candle Cove."

Now, disregarding that I made a direct comparison between "Sonic.EXE Round 2" and "Candle Cove", which considering me, should be enough to get me exiled, I only mention the cult at a small portion of this review.

:iconarrishades: made a comment about the cult in regards to the creepypasta, which made me realize that I didn't go into the detail I should have. I should have been pissed there even was a cult in this story. In fact, every time a cult is brought up in a creepypasta, I seem to ignore it. I think in this case, because I didn't finish the creepypasta, which is a task I dare any mortal to try without cringing, I figured the cult played a bigger part later in the story, so I held of on really commenting about it as I didn't get to that part.

It may be a bit professional to not criticize a work for something when you don't know how well they do it, but let's be honest, cults in creepypasta are kind of like zombies in visual mediums. They are overdone, mostly unnecessary and pretty much the "kiss of generic" to your story. The only difference is we still have stories to tell with zombies.


8. I do not understand Ouran Highschool Host Club (Honey's Fatal Depression)

In my review of the creepypasta "Honey's Fatal Depression" I make this point:
"Also considering it was just the bunny's ear and arm, it's kind of dumb. Honey is the youngest member of the club so somebody, most likely Haruhi, would have told him that it would be fixed."

Now the point I made was that, in the creepypasta, because the stuffed bunny was just that, a stuffed bunny, it could have been fixed, and at least one of the characters would have assured Honey that it would be fixed.

The point I screwed up with was that I said that Honey was the youngest member of the club, as it turns out, Honey is actually the oldest member. Yeah, this is me holding my hands up an admitting I had no idea about that, and I'd like to thank :iconcjcroen: for pointing that out to me, as well as one more mistake on this list.

I think a part of it comes from me not really liking "Ouran Highschool Host Club", not that it's bad, it's just not my thing, although coming from someone whose first anime they watched from start to finish was "Lucky Star" I don't know how well that explanation will hold water. I've also never read the manga, mostly because only recently have I gotten into graphic novels and manga.

My point still stands though, but I will concede that I made a mistake, and hey I got some anime recommendations out of it, I should check those out when I have the chance.

7. Italic mistake (Fluttershy's Childhood)

I'm separating this one from the other writing mistakes because this one has a different problem.

When I wrote my review of the creepypasta "Fluttershy's Childhood", I made another writing mistake. Whenever I take a line or paragraph from a past review or creepypasta, I usually put in italics. This is because, it's really confusing to see one paragraph that is from another source, and then a paragraph I wrote underneath that in the same writing.

Well, when I uploaded the review, something happened and the text that should've been italic wasn't.

I don't know what happened when I was uploading the review, I think because I wrote the review in Google Docs instead of in the Sta.sh Writer, the copy/paste made a couple errors. I've dealt with errors like the paragraph spacing issues before, and that was my main focus when I was copy/paste-ing the review. I missed the paragraphs because either I was too tired and fed up with using Library computers, or because I was on a time limit, or it could even be that I forgot all about them.

I've thought about fixing it, but at this point I don't really see the necessity, it's also partially for the reason I'm not fixing all the spelling mistakes I've made, I don't feel like updating something unless I really need to.


6. Lack of reviews in 2015

So, I've been reviewing creepypasta since 2014, and in 2014 I reviewed thirty-nine creepypastas. In 2016, the year I reached review one-hundred, I made forty-two total reviews, keep in mind that these counts do not qualify quickies and re-reviews. In 2017 I made thirty-six reviews, not as much from the previous two years, but still a nice amount. in 2015 I released twenty-eight reviews.

Twenty-eight official reviews; that is a pathetic output amount.

This is why my best list of that year had only two honourable mentions, because those were literally all of the ones I thought were legitimately good from that year. In fact, if we take out the honourable mentions, that leaves eight total reviews that did not make either list, and from both lists, there were six mentions total; SIX!

A part of this mistake was my frankly idiotic idea to split up my "Ben Drowned" review into three parts, and that at the time I was posting reviews on Monday, and because I still had school that year I didn't have much spare time.

Honestly though, I'm doing much better with these now that I'm no longer in school, and now have time to read these whenever I please, so I think this was an error worth making in the long-run.


5. Putting "White with Red" on my worst list despite giving it a "7/10"

Yeah, back to 2015 for this one.

On my "Top 10 worst creepypastas I reviewed" from 2015, my number 10 entry was the creepypasta "White with Red", and while I did justify my feelings toward it, it may have still been odd to see a "7/10" creepypasta on my worst list.

I think the best way to explain this one is to explain what my rating system really is. At first, it was a way to measure my feelings towards a particular pasta, however, as time went on it more developed into a recommendation scale.

A "7/10" does mean I recommend the creepypasta, and for the most part, "White with Red" is worth reading. The problem is that I didn't think it had a strong ending, and kind of wasted it's potential to be great, and that's why it made my worst list.

Looking back, I probably could've placed "Childhood Stories" there instead, but I'm satisfied with the list as it is.


4. Apparently it's not a Molestation joke
 (Friendship is Witchcraft)

On top of not understanding anime, I also don't understand parody/abridged series based on MLP.

When I did my review on the series "Friendship is Witchcraft" I only watched like three or four episodes, and not even fully, and if you're going to say I shouldn't have reviewed it, keep in mind that FiW has been designated the literal worst thing I've ever seen, and considering I've seen "Dorbees", "Madballs: Gross Jokes", "Stewie is Enceint" and a couple videos by Lily Peet, that is some stiff competition.

I made this comment in my review: "Oh yeah, they also make a molestia joke. Rule of thumb, NEVER make jokes about molestation, because that is a HORRIBLE thing to do, and this is coming from someone who enjoys a fair bit of off colour humour, and yet I do not think rape and molestation jokes are funny. It also doesn't work because it's just an easy joke to make, although the fact that they did work off of it was slightly amusing"

Yeah, apparently they do continue on with this joke in a sense. Apparently the joke is that Princess Luna is Princess Molestia. Just typing that sentence made me feel so wrong.

But yeah, technically the joke was not a molestation or rape joke. Really though, the point still stands, don't make those, they're very rarely ever funny and usually they shed a bad light on the person telling them, looking your way Louis C.K.


3. Obscure, confusing and unnecessary references (A handful of reviews)

Yes, I'm counting this, why? Because quite frankly, it's annoying me at this point.

I have a bad habit of referential humour in my reviews, and I use that term loosely because I don't typically try to make my reviews especially humorous. Honestly though, many of these are not really ones I expect readers to get, and even if they do, I doubt they'll find them funny. At most, they'll probably think "Oh, this guy likes Homestar Runner" or "Hey, this guy is a fan of Aurelio Voltaire", and then go on their day.

This one here from my "Thomas and the Children" review is the example that made me consider this a screw-up: "Also it does make you look a bit bad as a parent, I mean I get not looking over the content of the DVD, but only if it’s from a place you trust, nothing is said about where the DVD was bought so, all I can gather is that this was bought from Strong Bad while he was riding a Black Unicorn down the Side of an Erupting Volcano somewhere in Muskoka, Ontario. That my friends, is how you really stretch for references…"

Yeah, I make a cute comment about it, but really I have no clue why I kept that bit in, maybe because I thought someone would find it funny? I don't know, I just read it now and think "What the Hell was I thinking?".

There is also my "Pale Luna" review where I make reference to three different text adventure games, at least that one was funny at the time.

I also make reference to video game critic the Wiiviewr a lot, but that is mostly because I take a couple of my cues from him, the year end top ten list that starts with the worst was an idea from him.


2. The entire review (Demo Reel: Lost Episode)

This review sucks, the end.

Okay fine, here is a better explanation for it. The only reason this isn't number one was because this was a really bad review and not a technical or a factual screw up. I have no clue why I wrote it the way I did, but I kind of go off the rail talking about things that aren't relevant, making unfunny jokes and all in all just making the review as bad as it is.

Although I do think the first half of the review is, alright for the time I wrote the review in, it's hard for me to even think back on the review.

Honestly, I don't even agree with what I say about the pasta anymore, but the review is still up, and I'm not taking it down. I'm not proud of it, but it is a nice reminder, a reminder of "Do not suck this bad ever again!"

If you want to read the review, I don't know why you'd want to, but here you go: demo reel lost episode creepypasta review


1. 
My comment on what creepypasta should be (Mereana Mordegard Glesgorv)

I will never get over this one, I can't believe how stupid I was when I wrote this.

For those of you who aren't aware, in my original review of the creepypasta "Mereana Mordegard Glesgorv", I made this stupid comment: "Some of you may be saying that this wasn't supposed to be a story and just be informative like the news. Well a few problems with this being that as well, first off creepypastas aren't supposed to be informative, they are supposed to be stories."

I hang my head in shame that I used to think that, and I hang my head in shame again for the fact that I actually typed that.

I was kind of new to creepypasta still, I really only got into reviewing them because I wanted to share my thoughts on the creepypasta "Luna Game", so even then I had no right to say that. Even if I did, that comment is so stupid.

Really, there are other problems with the review, but this one just overshadows all of them, and the kicker, I was aware of how stupid this was before :iconntsefan: left a comment on the original review. Actually it was that comment that sparked the re-review of the creepypasta, where I also explained how stupid the comment I made was.

I'm not going to get over this one, this is something I legit, thought, wrote down and published as though it was a legitimate point against the creepypasta. Sweet Luna I was a moron, a dunce, an idiot, a whatever the Hell you want to call me for that comment.

But the important thing is that I fess up to my mistakes and try to improve, and over all I've seen some good improvement in my work, to the point where I can read some of my reviews without cringing. Again, if I make any more mistakes, feel free to bring them up and if there is enough, I may make another post about this. I thank you all for reading and understanding, I'm not perfect, but I try to improve, and isn't that all someone can ask of me?

Also, don't worry, next week will be a full review, I just wanted to get this off my mind.
