HowStuffWorks "Necronomicon Appearances"

Perhaps the most infamous appearance of the "Necronomicon" in cult film circles is "The Evil Dead" series. Sam Raimi's films follow the misadventures of Ash, played by Bruce Campbell, as he encounters supernatural ghouls and ghosts determined to cut his life short. The source of all the trouble is an ancient book bound in human skin and written in blood.

The "Necronomicon" from "The Evil Dead" movies shows up in other films as well. It's just one of many horror movie references in the movie "Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (click link and go to 5:15)," and appears on display in "Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings." It also pops up in a television episode of "Hercules" called "City of the Dead" and in Marvel Comics' Zombies storyline.

On television, the "Necronomicon" shows up quite a bit, mostly in cartoons. Here's a short list of some of the animated shows that reference it:

"Aqua Teen Hunger Force"
"The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy"
"The Real Ghostbusters"
"The Simpsons"
