Necronomicon is a horror film fanzine by Necro Neil published in Yorkshire, in the UK.

The first issue was released in May 2001. It is a black and white, A5, cut and paste, stapled publication. As of 2011, 18 issues have been published.

Necronomicon has been described by it's author as " A love letter to the horror genre" and is known for it's personal diary style, starting off with issue one Neil wrote of the horror films he was raised on and through the following issues has commented on every horror film he has watched in the ten years it has been published. It started off in a tight format of features about films, directors and actors (such as Evil Dead, An American Werewolf In London, Sam Raimi, Peter Jackson, Bruce Campbell) with reviews of dusty VHS rentals from his local video store. It developed into a much looser and personal style over ten issues but kept the nostalgic and nerdy sense of humour.

It publishes on average two to three times a year and is sold through Yorkshire comic retailers, fanzine fayres, film festivals and all issues are available through Etsy year round.
