I don’t want to say this is underrated because it does sort of fall into the cheese category but my god, this was a fireworks show of incredible body horror; complete with the most ridiculous finale imaginable.
Necronomicon isn’t a perfect movie nor is it even the best Lovecraft adaptation I’ve seen (that goes to In the Mouth of Madness). However, it’s absolutely fucking insane and there’s really zero reason not to love it. I feel like horror fans can take off their film critic hats for one evening just to enjoy this splatter fest.
I’m excited to watch anything with Brian Yuzna’s name attached to it at this point. This is the type of horror movie that really brings me back to those cold winter nights, crushing beers while geeking out over absurd movies. I’d recommend this to fans of Re-Animator, From Beyond and Society.
