Week #3 The Differentiator To Hunt a Monster...

When was the last time you watched a television show that made you laugh and shiver with fear? Combining the edgy humor of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" with the fun horror of "Evil Dead", "To Hunt A Monster..." is unlike anything you will find on television.

    To Hunt A Monster.. Wow! What an intriguing title :D though it kinda sounds like a Dateline special for a hunt for a serial killer haha. Definitely great special effects and makeup. I feel bad for whoever the actor is haha

    I was intrigued by the premise and thought it was well executed. You explained the difference of your show in a unique way. However, the set up for the final joke seemed to take a very long time such that I was disappointed by the punchline. Great job though. Good luck with the Top 15 vote!

    Being a person why is terrified of any kind of horror film, i really enjoyed the comedy aspect! I thought the makeup was well done and I just really enjoyed being able to laugh at a horror film, rather than being terrified out of my wits.

    There are so many directions this show could go in. You could go in the direction of real-monster spin-off monsters, or just completely made up ridiculous ones. The editing is perfect and the actors play really well off each other. It's pretty great that you can get this even just from a couple minutes.

    This show looks like a ton of possibility. I love horror comedy (probably because I find regular horror kind of boring) and this has a lot of potential. I'm also a huge fan of obscure monsters, so that sounds like it will be interesting too.

    Is "To Hunt a Monster" a play on words for "To Kill a Mocking Bird"? Or "To Sir with Love"? Anyway, I love the concept. I'm hoping there are some lady "Big Foots" coming up?

    So far I have been impressed with every one of your weekly vids. I like the idea and you have kept me interested in it. Although this video really just boils down to a conversation within a crazy context, I haven't seen any other group actually complete the challenge in a better way so I think you did a great job on this one.
