@00:36It's great how the camera zooms in.
One is used to see that as a creature poin of view, about to attack, but here is used for a clever
storytelling effect.

@05:05Thank you, by the way, for not showing all of the monster.

It's scariest when it's left up to the audience.

@05:38Excellent.

As an aside, as a WWII enthusiast (and M-1 owner), I also appreciate the correct (and apparently, practiced) use of period firearms. Great job!

The G.I. by ~BenT-Random Great effects, the sound works good, the idea is very original and it is a simple but nice script. I like the acting and love the camera's work. ( Featured by InpuUpUaut )

@04:06Why hasn't the grenade exploded in his hand?
Reply
:iconbent-random:
@04:06He is still holding the striker lever down when he's looking for the pin. If he could have found it he could have reset the grenade and not thrown it away. Throwing it at the monster would have made it bounce back and kill him.
