SynopsisThis anime is a compilation of 3 Lovecraft works:
The Picture in the House, The Dunwich Horror and the The Festival.
Characters & Voice ActorsLearn how to add characters and voice actors.
Well since there has yet to have been a review written about this I guess I'll take a shot at it.
all three of the stories are written by one of the most lauded horror writers of all time, H.P Lovecraft. So the stories are automatically good, well the source material is atleast. As a result of the very, very, VERY limited animation it makes it hard sometimes to follow the story, and for someone who has never read anything by Lovecraft it may not be very enjoyable. I give the story 9/10 because they are based off of masterpieces (though I may be biased)
I really enjoyed the handmade characters and sets. It's obvious the creators put a lot of effort into making the animation have a unique feel to it that contributes to Lovecraft's eerie source material. On the other hand the animation is terrible. Characters rarely move and when they do it sometimes plays out like a slide show. The majority of anything consisting of movement is just the camera panning or looking at things from a different angle. This made it really hard for me to enjoy because it was barely an animation. I give the art 9/10 and the animation 2/10
It's accompanied by a nice creepy almost ambient soundtrack consisting of a lot of acoustic guitar, this fits the art style quite well, though it's nothing special. The voice acting (what little there is) is actually surprisingly well done. I give the sound 7/10
If your a fan of Lovecraft and can look past the crappy animation it has several redeeming qualities, plus if you enjoy art specifically sculpture and stuff like that you may enjoy the art. If you are really into well done animation and have never read Lovecraft this may not be something you'll enjoy (though you really should read some of his stuff, it's fucking awesome) read more
