A horror classic, tautly made by Raimi, full of scares and that gets a lot of bang for its buck.

The cult classic 80's horror B-movie that inspired a generation of filmmakers. Sam Raimi's low budget horror film would spawn its own franchise as well as countless imitations and homages. However without the true savior of humanity, Bruce Campbell, all others were doomed to fail.

Raimi's early work is raw, but you can see the beginnings of a certain style which has since been repeated by manay others. Campbell is the fucking shit here, the rest of the cast is just ok. Must see at least once if you even remotely enjoy horror.

(Viewed on 20/05/13): Evil Dead is a testament to low budget ingenuity and the complete triumph of talent over adversity, marking the arrival of two promising newcomers in Raimi and Campbell, who went on to do bigger but not necessarily better things. The plot is merely an excuse to stage bloody mayhem, which Raimi does in high style, offering a series of disorienting angles and crash zooms and a nightmarish tone pitched somewhere between horror and farce. Its great reputation is well deserved.

One of those movies you hear about when you really start getting into movies as THE cult classic and then you rent it from Blockbuster and don't like it but pretend to because you think it makes you a bad movie buff to not like it until you get older and stop caring what other people think and are more than willing to admit you think it's not good.

Effortlessly likable and charming from the offset, while also being a genuinely unnerving excercise in horror, "The Evil Dead" is a film that is helped by its shoe-string budget and inherent, unintetnional campiness, not hindered, and one that has shaped the way that mainstream horror looks, feels, and shocks, thanks entirely to Sam Raimi's absolutely masterful direction.

Sam Raimi's running loose on a low budget, fueled by directorial creativity and a love for meat-and-potatoes horror. To his credit "The Evil Dead" can get pretty creepy or even full-on scary - and Bruce Campbell is in fact pretty good when Ash takes more of a central role towards the end. Still, Raimi's directorial approach strikes as kinda arthouse at times, something that, I think, clashes with the suspense he is elsewhere trying to create, the plot being too bare to withstand that antithesis.

Unlike the even more OTT sequels, the original Evil Dead combines its comedy and horror in a rather subtle way (yes, I'm aware of the absurdity of using the word subtle in anything related to the Evil Dead). It's never clearly comedic or really straight-faced horror either but maintains a delicate balance. I think that's lovely & intriguing but some might find it a bit disappointing in this day and age. Uses the bare bones budget well and, tree-rape aside, has a tangibly infantile charm to it.

The Evil Dead is a classic of the horror genre. This movie picks up where The Night of the Living Dead left off in the genre. The Evil Dead is revolutionary because it is one of the movies that started the comedy/horror subgenre. The acting in the movie has it's bright spots and a lot of low moments. All of the special effects in this movie are practical and they look both well done and goofy. The Evil Dead is a true B-movie. It's a great movie and it is done really well on a short budget.

Some great effects here, but in the middle of the film there is a weird stalling period and therefore a loss of tension.
