Storyline

"Three times Randolph Carter dreamed of the marvelous city, and three times was he snatched away while still he paused on the high terrace above it." Thus begins H. P. Lovecraft's epic tale of the courageous dreamer Randolph Carter and his search for the mystical sunset city by petitioning the gods of Kadath. During his journey, he travels deep into the world of dream, to the edge of the world, to the moon and back, and to the heights and depths of human and... inhuman experience.

Animated only in the barest sense
10 June 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I see that some people have seen hidden beauty behind this film, but I simply cannot agree. As much as I am a fan of all things HPL, I was extremely disappointed in this film.

First off, you can only call this an animated film in the loosest sense. If your idea of animation is moving a 2-dimensional cutout very poorly, then this fits that qualification. My wife likened this to a long episode of "Reading Rainbow" than an "animated feature length film".

The voice actors for the film sound like gamers who were called in by their friends to read lines. Actual voice acting is almost non-existent in the film.

I could go on and on why this is not a good purchase, but suffice it to say that I would heartily recommend renting or borrowing this film before purchasing. It is not going to be for everyone and if you are one of the select few who enjoys it, congratulations. For the rest of us, we would best be served by watching one of the many excellent live-action adaptations of HPL.
