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.
This is a nice horror anthology about the things the Necronomicon has seen. If you like Cat's Eye, Tales from the Darkside the movie, or Trick R Treat then I think you would enjoy the Necronomicon.
We all have heard about this infamous book. So who among us has seen the movie. Well I just watched and wasn't too disappointed. It's a movie about H. P. Lovecraft reading stories from the necronomicon. Pro's: The acting is good, direction also good, and the effects are really well used. Con's: Well there's not many cons, so I'll just say this. The stories they selected aren't stories you would know off the top of your head. If they are indeed Lovecraft stories at all. I'm unsure, but that's about it. Oh, the timeline seems to jump around a lot. I'm not sure if this intentional to say that the book exists forever or if they didn't think we would mind. I don't really mind it, but it does tend to make pinning down the timelines a little difficult. So pick it up, Jeffery Combs stars as Lovecraft. So if your a fan (as I am) he does a good job with the little scenes he's given.
