This is really good, I enjoyed that. The quality of the animation was a little variable - I found the 1960's psychadelic spiral as he fell into the Australian ruins a bit jarringly-bad - but some of it was very well realised including the Yithians themselves and their battle with the polyps was quite satisfying.

 

Some curious mangling went on for reasons I didn't quite understand - the race to follow humans was arachnid (spiders etc) rather than coleopterus (beetles!) - why?

 

But I thought this was a very creditable little film and I'd like to see more. I watched the whole thing whereas I had to give up on an animated version of "At the Mountains of Madness" on youtube recently...

 

Well done!

 

Kind Regards

Dave

I really enjoyed that. when I first started to watch it I just saw it as low budget, and hmnnn, but now I see it as very interesting. His character and voice are really good. I'm presently hunting down good little videos off the net, and that was worthwhile.
