Really great story telling!
The more this movie played, the gory it became. A blood fest.
While the animations are a bit hard to watch at times and the intro scenes to the movie are a bit confusing initially, it all comes together as the movie progresses into one of the better cosmic horror movies that takes just enough from the fantasy genre to drawn in lovers of either genre. What initially felt like I was watching a slow burn really took off into the second act and really immerses you in this world, giving context to the groundwork laid by the first act. Truly one of the best films of the genre and a worthy watch for D&D players and Lovecraft fans alike.
This is fantastic! Keep making these animated films.
I can't stand the animation. Not a fan of rotoscoping.
