Really weak in story, pretty good animation
26 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

At a vote of three you probably expect me to hate this little short flick, but I don't. It's not an awful effort, but there are areas I would say is very lacking.

Right at the start of the film a myth is created around this movie. It is stated that the movie is originally made in 1924. A nice touch, were it not for the fact that the film doesn't look aged whatsoever. They made a try to make it look old, but it is just to smooth in the edges for anyone who has seen an old movie to fall for it. Not even close.

The story is very, very thin. What they really got from Lovecroft is some names any reader of Lovecroft will recognize. But other than the names fans of Lovecroft won't get much out of the story and people who haven't read Lovecroft should just stay away from this flick.

The animation is simplistic, which of course is pretty forced since with the story about how this movie was made in '24 demands. As said, the animation is far from convincing anyone that it is that old, but it has a very nice style to it which brings it rating up from a two to a three from me. The characters is cut to their internal states. The innocent boy has the innocent face, or rather profile, and the arrogant older man has a clearly more "evil" face. And though I usually don't like these kinds of stereotypes in movies, it works here, and fits well in with how the movies I seen from the '20:s was made also.

My end recommendation; there's no need to go out searching for this short film if you are not a true die-hard-hard Lovecraftfan who needs to see everything Lovecraftrelated. But if you, as a reader of Lovecraft falls over it, give it a try, it is after all just five minutes of your life.
