Tome of the Week: Necronomicon Ex-Mortis (Evil Dead Franchise) – ’80’s & ’90’s | New 5th Edition Artifact

“Klaatu barada nikto

The book that opens the doorway to the legions of hell throughout the Evil Dead franchise, the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis is based on the literary grimoire of the same name (sans Ex-Mortis) made famous by its inventor, the horror writer H.P. Lovecraft.

Entirely fictional, the Necronomicon has appeared in countless works of fiction, always having its authorship and backstory altered to suit the particular realm of fantasy it inhabits.  In the Evil Dead universe, the Necronomicon unleashes the Deadite demons, raises the dead, or gifts the reader with magic and alchemical formulae. 

The popularity of the book has lead to numerous fan-made and even canonical reproductions of the infamous book, including an official latex replica sold with the 2002 “Book of the Dead” edition of the original film.
