The "Necronomicon ex Mortis" is a reference to the "Necronomicon," a fictitious grimoire (textbook of magic) found in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, first mentioned by name in his 1924 short story "The Hound," though its "author," the "Mad Arab" Abdul Alhazred, had been quoted in 1921's "The Nameless City." See more »

The uncut UK and US Anchor Bay DVD releases in 2001 had a Dolby Digital 5.1 and a 6.1 DTS-ES remix. The image is also matted to 1.85:1 aspect ratio from the original 1.37:1 frame, by the request of 'Sam Raimi (I)'. See more »
when I first saw the movie i was expecting it to be a splatter movie with no scares just gore, I was very glad when the i was about half-way through the movie because it was one of the scariest movies I have ever seen. The sounds the possessed make and their empty eyes,the cheap yet good make up effects,the thick fog and darkness.
This movie also features some great camera work, and some of the shots were pure genius. It might be a little nasty with the trees raping women and the gallons of blood and gore but in this case the gore is not just filler to make the movie more repulsive so it wont need to be scary, no this movie really is scary.
Every horror movie fan should own this.
But I'm not giving it 10 points because of the silly FX in the final scene with the book and the demons.
The plot is not a masterpiece but it's alright and nothing really bothers you, and as for the acting lets just say that although the actors would never win the academy awards they are much better then Saw's actors could ever be.
