That's really NOT very cricket - but it DOES bug me sometimes.Jim
Patience, grasshopper.

I think the Necronomicon was used in all three of the Evil Dead movies, of which Army is the last. K-B-N was used as an incantation (that would allow one to safely bind the book's evil) as kind of a double-edged inside joke -- using one of the most famous classic sci-fi quotes as magic words, instead of coming up with original gobbledy-gook.

Okay, many of us know how the movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still" finished, but how many know how the original short story "Farewell to the Master" ended?

Abdul Alhazred heard the buzzing of crickets, which tells us that Jiminy was far more sinister than Pinocchio ever suspected.

Also of Note
In Return of the Jedi two of the skiff gaurds for Jabba were named Klattu and Baratta, at least the action figures that Kenner put out had that name.. Lucas's little nod to the genre methinks...

Yes it was a delebirate nod, He gave the nod to all three.
Barada , was the name of one of the Klatooinans, which is a name that got used twice, they never used Klaatu outright, but the species was a derivation of it.
Others (WEG) later made the Klaatu a sub species of the Nikto. The Nikto were named all along as Nikto, but WEG wanted the final Klaatu in, not realizing that Klaatu was in the Barada already.
