"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 movie everyone should respect !

“A few nights ago, a couple of friends and myself watched The Evil Dead again. It was like the 68th viewing for me ( I think...lost count somewhere around 50) but it still only means one thing to me: PARTY !! Many feeling can occur when watching this delicious masterpiece by Sam Raimi. You can either adore it, be frightened by it or be disgusted by it. But it always leaves a big impression on you and I can't imagine anyone would hate it.

And there is ONE feeling that everyone should have towards this movie...RESPECT ! Mostly respect regarding the achievement of Sam Raimi. This guy was 21 years old when he made this film and that's impressive to say the least. I'm around that age at the moment and I sure as hell haven't pulled it off yet...I strongly doubt I ever will, actually. No” read more

250 Of My Favorite Films From The 80's, y'all (250 movies items)

"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"
