Sam Raimi’s debut feature, the one that introduced audiences to anvil-jawed hero Bruce Campbell and scared the world out of creepy cabins in the woods forever, is a low-budget rollercoaster ride double stuffed with shocks, gore and bizarre humor – a funky fright flick made by and for true horror fanatics. An unsuspecting group of college pals decide to vacation at a creepy backwoods cabin (big mistake!), but instead of rest and relaxation they find an unspeakable evil lurking in the forest, and one by one, the kids are transformed into undead creatures with a taste for terror. Soon it’s up to our man Ash to survive the night and save the day, but it ain’t gonna be easy. Famously hailed by Stephen King as “the most ferociously original horror film of the year,” The Evil Dead is wildly fun, truly terrifying and downright disgusting … in short, an undisputable horror classic! (Dir. by Sam Raimi, 1981, USA, 85 mins., Not Rated)
