"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.

Lessons To Be Learned From Horror Films (187 movies items)

"Don't read it. No good, has ever come from reading a cursed book. Especially, if the word "Dead" appears in the title."

"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 this a re-watch didn't change my mind. I mean, sure, 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 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 released a remake which which was approved by Sam Raimi and which was fairly w” read more

Greatest Horror Movies (18 movies items)

"Sam Raimi's (Spiderman, Evil Dead II) low-budget explodingly gory zombie flick is not one to pass up. A cultural classic along with it's sequel, Evil Dead is a funny, comical and spooky supernatural tale that is the polar opposite of a simple "slasher" film"

500 Essential Cult Movies (502 movies items)

" Any fan of Sam Raimi's work will find the genesis of his directing style here; unique shots he created to work wthin the limited budget have appeared in most of his films since. Evil Dead is mind-bendingly gross; even beyond the infamous "tree rape" scene, the sheer amount of physical abuse Campbell takes as the lead is both cringeworthy and hilarious. As one of the classic cult films of the horror genre, Evil Dead is a must-see. "

"LAST WATCHED: 12/22/2016COMMENTS: The only NC-17 movie in my collection. I love the combination of comedy and horror, which says a lot, because I normally don't care for black comedy. The only other exposure I'd had to Bruce Campbell's acting was as Autolycus from Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, so it was incredibly refreshing to see a younger him in such a fun role in this movie. The makeup effects were absolutely stunning and some of the creepiest I've ever seen in horror movies. It's funny "
