Five friends travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons.

"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.

"A group of teenagers go off to an isolated cabin for the weekend, and soon come to discover that whenever a group of teenagers goes off to an isolated cabin in the forest, the end result is never good. Particularly when the cabin contains a tome of demonology. Heck, I coulda told them that. 1983's The Evil Dead is the first chapter in what would become the colossus of cult scare fare and the most definitive when it comes to the cabin in the woods theme that made it a subgenre to begin with.

" Date: 5/20/2021 Viewed: 4K UHD Re-Watch Note: Seeing that this year is the 40th anniversary of the Evil Dead franchise, I plan to rewatch all of them this year including watching the remake (or spin-off, or whatever it is) for the first time. I know the 40th anniversary is not until October, but I'm jumping on the hype train early. Evil Dead is one of my favorite horror movie franchises next to the Alien & Predator franchise and I have been a huge fan of these movies since I was a kid. I fir"

" Notes: 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, even after rewatching the damned thing recently. 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 mu"

"Re-watch - July 17th When I saw the local drive-in was showing The Evil Dead with The Lost Boys I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I do rather wish they'd flipped the order around, however, as this film is a tough act to follow. But I had a great time overall and I'm thankful for the chance to see both films this way."
