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: Short on characterisation and plot but strong on atmospheric horror and visual churns.
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.
