  1. Ligia Prodan's rating of the film Necronomicon: Book of the dead

    That baby part was quite nice.

  2. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Necronomicon: Book of the dead

    5 - It would be foolish of me to disparage this film for failing to capture the essence of Lovecraft, when I'm not even sure if that's what it's going for. In my view, it's just trying to be an entertaining, campy little collection of horror shorts, and it's wearing the thematic garb of weird fiction for flavor exclusively. Under those criteria it's passable, if predictable.

  3. Siaudebert's rating of the film Necronomicon: Book of the dead

    Ok for the stories of Lovecraft

  4. V.S. Luoma-aho's rating of the film Necronomicon: Book of the dead

    Some pretty awesome effects here and there and the third story "Whispers" is actually pretty cool. But all in all the stupid/bad stuff outweights the batshit crazy.

  5. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film Necronomicon: Book of the dead

    I really, REALLY want this movie to come to DVD. I saw it on VHS and it's too much fun. It doesn't really have the full-on dread and living fear of Lovecraft, it's Brian Yuzna so it has more in common with the Stuart Gordon school of batshit crazy Lovecraft adaptations, and therefore is a good wacky experience. Also, Jeffrey Combs is a scream as Lovecraft (he has also played Poe). Best viewed with beer on hand.
