"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.

A bit confusing

I'm a fan of Lovecraft, his writings are so fashinating and enigmatic at the same time. The Horror narrated by HP Lovecraft in his books is the horror for the unknown, and i think it's the most powerful fear of mankind. You did really a little nice animation, the style suites the story well, but i've found a bit of confusing following the story, maybe some lines from the "The Book" here and there could helped a little the ones who didn't read this short story of lovecraft.

Anyway i can't wait to see more animation related to HP Lovecraft, nice job pal.

Nice really nice

I really like the fact that someone made a Lovecraft animation. its awesome. The animation is really good and the backdrops looks amazing. However I feel like the end was a bit of an anticlimax, and could have been more exciting.

Love it!

I have been making Flash films for a few years now and have seen quite a lot of movies on this site, but this is actually my favourite one yet... I have never added a clip to my favourite movies- this is the first one.
The excellent drawings and the feeling this clip has got to it give me the chills. The only thing you could improve is the timing of the music.
Plus, you got me really interested in the Cthulu myth. Any suggestion for literature?
Cheers,
Hildebrandt
