"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.

You can never go wrong with Lovecraft

I am a huge fan of H.P. Lovecraft. I have been waiting for someone to make a good video inspired by one of his stories. I'm impressed. And- what's more- you used music from Nox Arcana's "Blackthorn Asylum," which itself was inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's tale "From Beyond." I am very impressed by your use of Nox Arcana. I would absolutely adore if you continued that tradition. :)

I Like The when it's hallow the music make it's quietly and seriously but I think it's scary and horror, terrify.

The sound editing ruined it

I'm a huge lovecraft fan I would LOVE to see you do some other stories of his, he has so many cool evil stories it's just endless..

This would have been a good movie BUT the sound editing is terrible! Honestly this is some of the worst editing I've ever heard in a flash...

Make It Blend Dude

I would have really enjoyed this if it weren't for the abrupt stops in music...Really fucked up the flow and made it impossible to get into the story.

Mixed feelings.

Your backgrounds are amazing and your animation is good in its scribbly way. You know how to capture a feeling and how to use scenery.. but one thing you really really need to work on is your use of sound. The music you chose fits the content, but it often ends abruptly in a way that doesn't work and you kind of get jerked out of the story.. But otherwise a pretty good movie.
