Necronomicon – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 12

Necronomicon

It’s difficult to articulate an opinion about Necronomicon. Like a thing out of the Lovecraft stories that it is based on the movie seems unknowable and unnamable. It’s not good, but it’s not exactly bad Esther. It’s an anthology of three stories, with a wraparound story starring Jeffrey Combs as H. P. Lovecraft. There are parts and moments of the movie that are really good, only for it to turn outright bizarre. The first story is a creepy ghost story… plus a giant tentacle monster. The first half of the middle story is a surprisingly good adaptation of Lovecraft’s Cool Air. The second half did not live up to the beginning, to say the least. And the less said about the third story the better. All in all, as I said, the movie is difficult to get a grip on. If I had to be more definite, I’d say it is a bad movie with flashes of excellence.

About Ted Dahlberg

I'm a stoic, a pessimist, a bookworm, a skeptic, and possibly other things which take more than one word to say.
