Now, in 1983, the children and teenagers of Hinamizawa are being haunted by a ghost from the past, one who visits and kills them in their sleep. Mion and Shion Sonozaki, Satoko and Satoshi Hojou, and Rika Furude are among those plagued by these strange visions, and together they must figure out how to make it through the night alive. Will they be cut down in their sleep by Keiichi? Or will their own growing insanity be the downfall of them all?


    This project started over a year ago, and unfortunately I left to study abroad for a year before I could complete it. Once I came back, I decided to finish it and submit it for the AMV contest at Anime Iowa 2012.

    I'm not a big fan of horror movies, since I personally can't stand the gore, but I watched the 2010 trailer of Nightmare on Elm Street and figured that it would tie together perfectly with the anime Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. Since Keiichi is the only one with decent footage of being run down by someone, I decided that he would be the perfect candidate to play Freddy Krueger rather than being one of the scared kids. The synching I think came out alright; it could be better, but by using Video Studio 7 to make it, I literally had to render the video every single time I wanted to check to see if everything matched up with the audio. If I manage to get a better program, perhaps I'll perfect it all in the future. For now, though, it's probably as good as it's going to get, lol.
