The Black Book

Author Comments

"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,
CosmicGhost

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.

Question for u.

It was that book cursed?.-----.
Btw,nice art/storyline... :3



this is sad yet amazing

this would have to be the most sad yet amazing thing i have watched today



A thrilling adventure

The animation and the music was good, but the story sounds a little complex. I enjoyed it thoroughly and I hope to see more of your work.



Surprising...

It was definatly not the cheesy Indiana Jones type of thing that I was expecting,loved it's chilling,eerie atmosphere,weird storyline and the sketchy graphical style in the begining,and how you handled the twist,with the sudden stop of music and the graphical style change was a big up for this animation,and the creepy old man with white eyes at the end gave me the creeps.Very well put together,worthy of a sequel that would make a little more sense,although Metallica's The Call of Ktulu would have worked much better as a theme song.
