The Cast of Cthulhu: Necronomicon: Book of Dead
A horror anthology demands a discussion with someone who knows a thing or two about horror anthologies, so Jonathan Inbody of Gray Matter: An Acid Horror Anthology Podcast joins the podcast to discuss the truly weird and difficult to track down Necronomicon: Book of Dead from the long ago time of the 1990s when anthology films were still in vogue.
Adapting 3 stories from Lovecraft — very loosely — Necronomicon is a quintessential 90s horror film filled with gnarly practical effects, troubling sexual politics, and important questions asked of the viewers such as “would you have sex with David Warner?” and “does Cthulhu want to have sex with that guy?”
