Horror classic for horror fans

by Darryl on 2/21/2013

I am a horror movie fan and never had the chance to ever see evil dead because I never knew how good it is. A friend recommended it to me and I ordered it and was completely satisfied. This is one of the best horror movies ever and I'm a fan of Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice). I know that they are remaking this movie but I don't think it will be as good as the original. I recommend this to other horror movie fans.

Editors Note
Note Director Sam Raimi's first film has achieved legendary status since its 1982 release, and for good reason. Though perhaps not as widely seen as its two sequels, EVIL DEAD 2 and ARMY OF DARKNESS, THE EVIL DEAD is arguably the best of the three. It is the story of five college-age friends who travel to a cabin in rural Tennessee where the stumble upon the Book of the Dead, an ancient tome bound in human flesh and inked in blood. After unwittingly awakening the unspeakable terror told of in the book, each of the friends is transformed into the evil dead, one by one, except for Ash (Bruce Campbell). So, Ash is left with no other way to survive than to dismember the living corpses of his sister, girlfriend, and two of his friends. Shot on a shoestring budget, the film boasts some impressive camera work and extremely over-the-top gore effects as well as a sense of humor much more subtle than the tongue-in-cheek aesthetic of the two sequels.

Sight and Sound "...[A] tongue-in-cheek cult favourite..." 05/01/2002 p.59,"[H]ighly effective as a tense horror -- its scares balanced by plenty of tongue-in-cheek humour." 11/01/2005 p.88
Premiere "Sam Raimi's masterpiece that's still as shocking and entertaining today as it was in 1981." 08/31/2010
