"I know now that my wife has become host to a Candarian demon. I fear that the only way to stop those possessed by the spirits of the book is through the act of... bodily dismemberment."

For the ultimate paradigmatic definition of a cult classic horror movie, one should simply behold the unforgettable ultra-low-budget Sam Raimi flick The Evil Dead. Back in 1979, Raimi and a cheery g... read more

Great movie on a low budget. All three Evil Dead movies are a good example of what you can do with a great director like Raimi and acting talent like Bruce Campbell.

Sam Raimi Films - Ranked (14 movies items)

" The Evil Dead is a glorious mix of horror and comedy. With a beautiful mix of gore and violence together with Raimi's inventive filmmaking, this film is an absolute feast. He understands that watching films is about having fun, and in here, fun is absolutely allowed."

"13.5. Netflix Uusintakatselu. Useiden katselujen, mutta vuosikymmenen tauon jälkeen edelleen armoton. Hurjat kamera-ajot, oudot lattiatasokuvakulmat ja nopeudessaan lähes ahdistavat leikkaukset tuovat saatanallisen tunnelman hermostuttavan tehokkaasti näköjään myös suht valoisaan olohuoneeseen. Innovatiivisuus kameratyössä ja hyökkäävässä editoinnissa antaa näyttelytyön täysin anteeksi."

A classic

“Of course, I already saw this movie but since it was ages ago, maybe 20 years ago, I was really eager to check it out again. Obviously, it has become since then a major cult-classic but, to be honest, even though I did like it, I have never been a really huge fan and, to be honest, this re-watch didn't change my mind. I mean, sure, I have to admit it, it is definitely a fun horror-comedy, no doubt about it, but, at the end of the day, I think it was above all a cheap flick that Sam Raimi made at the time to start up his career. Eventually, after all these years, if you look back at his legacy, it still is pretty much his most acclaimed directing effort which is, at the same time, pretty neat but also pretty sad, when you think about it. Since then, they have recently released a remake whic” read more
