Young Howard Lovecraft begins his adventure by going to the Butler Sanitarium with his mother to visit his father Winfield Lovecraft, a patient there who has been driven mad by something he's done. Howard's father goes into a spasm of paranoia and fear, begging his son to destroy a book that he should have never written. The boy doesn't scream during the incident, but does go home with a small gift - a paper star made by his father. Once home, Howard's curiosity is too much and he begins to read his father's book. He's drawn into a dark, cold world of magic and deceit. The book tells of a place - R'yleh - a "kingdom described as an unholy marriage of fairy tales and nightmares." Unwittingly, the boy reads a few words written in the book in a strange language - and is sucked through a hole in the fabric of the universe.

As a huge fan of the graphic novel this is based on, I was very excited to learn that they were doing a movie. While I do wish that the movie could have been truer to the book, I still loved it. There are plenty of Lovecraftian elements woven into an original, kid-friendly plot. The animation is reminiscent of old Rankin Bass stop-action animation. This gives it a cool retro feel and also just really works with the frozen kingdom/winter setting. Its a great way to introduce Lovecraft to the next generation of fans and also has plenty of fun moments for adults as well. It's accessible to anyone while still having plenty of perks for Lovecraft fans!
