Try Once Upon a Blue Moon
(Canadian film from 1995, I find it lame but it has a similar story-line).

Lex's rating:
People who added this item 2044 Average listal rating (1377 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.5
The Evil Dead (1983)
You should check out the Masters of Horror mini-movie Dreams in the Witch House It is about an hour long, so not a full-length movie, but it also has cheesy kills, features a necronomicon (that looks very similar to the one from Evil Dead, but this mini-movie is based on the H.P. Lovecraft short story, so that makes sense) and also has some stupid, gory horror.

or The Changeling(1980)

or Darkness
Lex's rating:

My list of movie recommendations based on some popular movies. Of course, in most case, the recommendation is not nearly as good as what it is based on. Oh well. However, in some cases the recommendations are as good or even better. I base the recs on the general story-line and genre. If the story-line is similar (or similar enough that a fan of the original might be interested in theory), that's how the rec got on this list.
