    I finished this AMV quite a few months ago.. I was first inspired when I saw Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade and listened to "Haunted" by Evanescence. Jin-Roh seemed to have a nicely-done, dark-tale sort of aura, while "Haunted" sounded perfect to show the horrors and drama in the movie. Basically, I introduced the first "red riding hood", Nanami (short-haired girl), as the one who is being chased and harrassed by the Wolf Brigade (the heavily-armored soldiers). Then Fuse (the short-haired male protagonist/antagonist) is shown as part of the Wolf Brigade, and he goes around harrassing Nanami until he kills her. He is left with vivid images of Nanami as he befriends the second red riding hood, Kei ([sp?] the long-haired girl). Kei reminds Fuse so much of Nanami that he is haunted by her.. One scene leads to another and Fuse ultimately kills Kei. Most of the video has to do with these main characters haunting each other, namely Fuse. I added some minor characters such as Fuse's best friend ([dunno his name...] introduced at 1:38), the government police officers (2:21 and so on), and The Sect rebels (2:28, 2:43, etc.). I believe that they help to represent the "haunting" theme through mistrust, oppression, etc., respectfully. This is my first, solid attempt at making a dramatic video.. Enjoy!

    [Edit: 9/20/03 - 11:59 pm] I forgot to mention that this video contains a fair amount of violence and blood (it's a good indication of what NOT to put on the Golden Donut), mostly from gunshots and such. So if you don't like that sort of stuff, please refrain from watching the vid. It isn't just one big bloody massacre, however.. Mostly full of drama. I would also like to say that I synced quite a few, subtle actions in the vid.. Such as eyes blinking, heads turning, guns shooting, etc. I hope they're pretty noticable. Have fun.

    Lyrics to "Haunted" -

    Long lost words whisper to me slowly.
    Still can't find what keeps me here.
    When all this time I've been so hollow, inside (I know you're still there).

    Watching me,
    Wanting me,
    I can feel you pull me down.
    Fearing you,
    Loving you,
    I won't let you pull me down.

    Haunting you, I can smell you - alive.
    Your heart pounding in my head.

    Watching me,
    Wanting me,
    I can feel you pull me down.
    Saving me,
    Raping me,
    Watching me.

    Watching me,
    Haunting me,
    I can feel you pull me down.
    Fearing you,
    Loving you,
    I won't let you pull me down.
