At approximately the 37:30 minute mark (during "The Cold") some violin/synth cords are played as a part of the score. This tune is identical to the closing credits music of the TV show Dexter. Daniel Licht composed both scores. Dexter was released 13 years after Necronomicon. See more »
During the first story "the drowned" Edward De LaPoer is tearing the old library books off the shelves, looking for the necronomicon. The books are covered in dust and cobwebs and have clearly not been disturbed for a long time. But their pages are strangely new and and not in the slightest bit yellowed as one would expect for a collection of very old hardbacks. See more »

A movie based on HP Lovecraft's fascination of the Necronomicon (The Book of dead names). It begins with HP (Jeffrey Combs [including, fake chin]) entering a library (belonging to an order/cult of monks). He goes into the forbidden section containing a certain book. Unknown to its keeper(s) HP opens the book obtaining inspiration from it's pages, then writes down the following stories: The Rats in the Walls, Cool Air and The Whisperer in Darkness. Which of course are shown graphically within the film.
A lovely and well-presented movie, though it reject's then places in certain details onto HP's stories. Jeffrey combs was the perfect candid for this film being a HP Diva. A definite 8/10
