WOW! It's smooth and clear. It has the 3D perspective with the trees getting out of your way, and having the distant thunder with Fog effect. You animated this very well.
I particularly like how the thunder creates the creepy faces within the background tress.
You also did very well on giving the flashlight light's its own movement. Something a lot of people miss out on.
The sky has a beautiful texture before and when the thunder strikes.
The face on your emoti-con is funny. It represents that he is scared, and is really taking in his surroundings. o.O Is what I would do as well if I'm walking in the rain seeing faces in the shadows.
The tone that you chose to give your emoti-con, plays well with the background and helps you focus in that area, before widening your eye range.
I give this a 10/10. 100%
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
69 out of 72 deviants thought this was fair.

One: I love the purple (my favourite colour tehe)
Two: Very good concept and animation. Very well done.
Three: I love how believable and 3D it is. It's just done very beautifully.
Four: When It goes back to the original, it's a transition not many would notice, except probably someone who has worked with this, like me. Either way very well done.
Five: I love the little emoticon. It's just so cute bouncing around with it's scared face.
Six: I love how it has this dark theme to it, with all the lightning and the scary faces. Very well done.

All in all, I love it 10/10. Very well done.

One thing I would consider is making the protagonist of the scene look around with the flashlight while walking but miss the ghosts/figures. Just a thought, maybe its better straightforward. Anyway awesome animation!
