Plot Summary

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. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: To say that the Evil Dead movies are not for everyone is an understatement. A strong stomach is required. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Oct 22, 2010

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. – Pat Graham, Chicago Reader, Oct 13, 2014

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. – Empire Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

At Last TRUE HORROR has come

everyone should know what the evil dead is, this classic set the bar high for movies now a days. The gore and effects is epic, and besides who doesn't love zombies. Also if u hate this movie, i'm against you.

Great Movie...The Sequal Is Better

Get Evil Dead 2!!! You Have Evil Dead 1 and 3 But No 2! Each Film Has A Different Sence Of Humor. This One Is More Outright Horror, While Army Of Darkness Is More Of A Comedy. Evil Dead 2 Is The Happy Middle Between Bloody Horror And Goofy Comedy.

Yea!

Classic!
