It's very, very Lovecraftian, and very, very bad.

Audience Reviews for Necronomicon: Book of the Dead

A fun adaptation of some of Lovecraft's tales related to the Necronomicon but also a very messy movie at that. The most interesting stories are the worse directed and acted and the best talents wasted on the middle story which is too boring and actually, one of Lovecraft's lowest and most uninteresting short stories. A good ride for the fans but overall, too messy and rushed to be truly memorable.
