About the Movie
The Ultimate Experience in Grueling Terror, The Evil Dead is a movie so relentless that it will stand forever as a landmark in modern horror history. When a group of college students finds a Sumerian Book of the Dead in the old wilderness cabin they've rented for the weekend, they unwittingly unleash a demonic force from the surrounding forest. As each of the kids are possessed by the demons they've let loose, body parts and bodily fluids go a-flying until only one young man is left to face down the Evil Dead.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: While injecting considerable black humor, neophyte Detroit-based writer-director Sam Raimi maintains suspense and a nightmarish mood in between the showy outbursts of special effects gore and graphic violence which are staples of modern horror pictures.
Fresh: To say that the Evil Dead movies are not for everyone is an understatement. A strong stomach is required.
Fresh: Sam Raimi directed this 1983 horror feature fresh out of film school, and his anything-for-an-effect enthusiasm pays off in lots of formally inventive bits.
Fresh: If you can overlook the mostly lame-o acting, cheeseball effects and fumbling drama, there's enough fledgling genius here to fill another thousand horror movies.
Who can forget Bruce Campbell and The Raimis' team-up in this AMAZING film? This movie was a stepping stone for all the other great horror films out there now adays! I highly reccomend this, Evil Dead II AND Army of Darkness. It's probably cheaper to get this movie elsewhere, but it's SO worth $20! Reading If Chins Could Kill by Campbel will also maximize your Evil Dead vieweing experience, but the movie alone is great too! LOVE THIS!! Watch it and you will NOT regret it!
Give me all the Evil Deads
In one package deal would impossible to resist the entire evil dead series.
A true horror classic!
A very low budget horror movie that succeeds on all levels - gory, scary, and even a little goofy at times. You have to watch this one in the dark. A horror masterpiece. Highly recommended for any horror fan!
