Check Out The Look Of The “New” Necronomicon Ex Mortis From The Evil Dead Re-boot (EW.com)

This isn’t exactly a breaking newsflash, but we hadn’t seen these yet. While we’re bummed out that there’s no gnarled scabby human face (or what WAS a human face at some point) on it, the inside looks pretty scary. Hope all the characters smoke a bunch of weed like in the original before they play the reel-to-reel recording (if it’s set in the 70s-early 80s –if not, read it, I guess) because if they decide to bust out a book like this with very succinct, blunt warnings including  DON’T SAY IT. DON’T WRITE IT. DON’T HEAR IT. DON’T SHARE IT, then I’m going to have serious problems having any sympathy for them.* Not to mention, no-one in it is half as goddamned gorgeous (or funny) as Bruce Campbell was in the originals, so there’s no distraction to let a few things slide. OK, where were we? I realize this is a “re-boot”, but come on… having a female heroine saw off her “possessed arm”–give us a little more than that. It’s not like the old-school Necronomicon looked goofy, it was pretty disturbing, and the Raimi/Tapert team did a really amazing job constructing it with such limited funds (as with all aspects of the series). So let’s see more of the inside…

*maybe it’s because we’ve seen enough horror movies, but no matter what dose or kind of alcohol and narcotics were in our systems, we’d take one look at that thing and say, “Welp, that just about does it for me,” then put it back right where we found it, and go start looking for somewhere else to spend the night that didn’t contain a book bound in human flesh and inked in blood in the first place.
