The Black Book

"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.



O MY GOD its the necronomican

What the hell was that all about? Well I don't get it but who cares it looked and sounded really good. 10!

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.


An excellent combination of story, art and music. This really stands out above many of the other submissions. You sir have earned yourself a 10 and a 5
