"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.

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.

Excellent story, easy to follow, suspenseful and had me at the edge of my seat. Love what you did with the ending as well. 10/10 and 5/5 is my vote

H. P. would be proud!

Being a bit of a Lovecraft fan, I'd say this was an ideal way to showcase one of his stories. I know it is difficult to sum up a full book in one short flash, but you did a heck of a job. This story in particular, you brought out the suspense without trying to turn it to horror... just as Lovecraft would have wanted it. Well done! Straight to favorites, this goes...
