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.

Lovecraft rulz!!! :D

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.

Dem good musics!
But I imagine it should be more interesting for those who read the book.
Very nice, anyways!

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.
