"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.

"How could I not have the franchise that introduced us to Bruce Campbell? It just wouldn't be a list of 80's horror movies without it."

" My favourite spirit possession movie. The over the top and humorously intense representation of demonic possession make this film great. No use of CGI here, everything that happens in the film happened in physical reality, which made shooting this film an arduous and creative experience. I also like the fact that it doesn't make use of Christian religious ideas to explain the possession. Definitely one of the best horror films of all time. The remake was awful and unnecessary. "

" "We're going to get you. We're going to get you. Not another peep. Time to go to sleep." I had a hard time choosing between this, Evil Dead 2 and even the remake (i don't think of Army of Darkness as a horror movie), but in the end i had to go with the original. Most fans love Evil Dead 2 the most, and i can definitely see why, but there is just something about the grittiness of the extremely low budget effects here that i love. Knowing how this movie was made and what they had to go through d"
