"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.

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.
