"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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars


I Know that the Story Wasn't Made by You, but the Animation is Really Good!


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Nicely done

I liked the lack of dialogue, you're a very good visual storyteller. The backgrounds are definitely my favorite part of the cartoon. The jagged, blasted landscape he encounters on first entering the other world was very powerful, it really gave you the impression that something terrible happened there.
