Atmospheric and visually inventive short
24 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

The Other Gods is a brief but unique short with a simple HP Lovecraft-inspired story. A magician's arcane studies lead him to come face to face with various monsters of Lovecraftian lore.

The black and white cutout animation is very similar to that of The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926), although presumably this was made on a computer. A title card claims that the film is from the twenties but it clearly is not, as the copyright notice says otherwise. The tame deception isn't necessary as the antiquated style suits the film perfectly whether it was made in 1924 or 2004.

A creepy little success, I found it atmospheric, entertaining, and the perfect length - unlike many shorts it understays its welcome. See it if you get the chance.
