Necronomicon Ex-Mortis (Also known as "Book of the Dead" and "Naturom Demonto" in the original Evil Dead script) is the antagonistic object in the Evil Dead franchise. It has the power to harness The Force's ability to control both the dead and Deadites, as well as summon the Kandarian Demon itself. The spells on its pages are written in Sumerian and can be used only if they are said correctly. The book is unaffected by fire or any conventional damage and can only be injured by the Kandarian Dagger. However, as well as containing passages on summoning demons, the book also contains instructions on how to destroy them as well as clues about their motivations and aims.
