"The Book" is an unfinished short story by American horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft.
I changed the story, but the main idea is the same: A young man finds an ancient, dangerous book, which can give him power to visit strange dimensions.

I hope you enjoy it,

Edit: Thanks everyone :)
About the story: The animation is similiar to the book until he wakes up in the other dimension. After that I changed it, in the book he returns safely to his room.

I'll definitely make more animations based on lovecraft or with a similiar atmosphere. I'm also planning a strange, dark-themed series.

i liked the ambience, the mood you had going, the painted backgrounds were really cool. they had a nice contrast with the character animation.

so many people have told me to read lovecraft but i haven't yet.

I really enjoy Lovecraft's work and i think that you did a great job presenting it. Lovecraft would be proud.

That scared the crap outta me

Excellent work. I'd have to say that the rotting alien was the scariest part though. Not to say that it was bad (it wasn't at all), but I'd recommend that the music didn't stop so early and abruptly, it lost some of it's effect that way. Also, I would try to place more emphasis on the protagonist's unsightly state after reading the black book. Please, do make more of this amazing work if you schedule allows it, this was truly great and near perfect!
