A grim and gross movie with dark comedy mix with it. the story is about Five college age friends road trip to a remote location where they are slowly swallowed by an evil presence one by one. this movie is only a first time watch for me, The demons in the movie are scary and gross.

The budget limitations are obvious (the stop motion animation is particularly poor) but the ideas are here, and it's a triumph of independent film-making that it became such a success. The sequel which was a virtual remake, is much, much better though.

Edge of your seat gorefest with creative, amazing camera work/direction. Hard core horror on a low budget, and it works on every level.

Evil dead is creepy, but extremly fun horror film. Some of the most memorable horror scenes are in this movie. Atmosphere is awesome. Woods are unexplainable. Masks are creepy but also funny. Entire thing is great fun, intensive but also funny in some very creepy way. Film is very well directed. Evry shot was good and it really served well in creating atmosphere.

The Evil Dead review

Ash, Scotty, Linda, Cheryl and Shelly spend a weekend in an empty cabin with The Book of the Dead and a recording from the said book. Cheryl (Ellen Sandweiss) gets possessed first and victimizes Linda (Betsy Baker). Shelly (Theresa Tilly) and Scotty (Richard DeManicor) soon follow and Ash (Bruce Campbell). The beginning was a good introduction to the book and its characters despite its slow pace. It picks up when one of the figures changes shapes. Had a few humorous moments but mainly thrilling sequences, spooky score and skilled editing (Joel Coen served as an assistant editor on the film) and make-up. I enjoyed the scene where the corpses decompose, camera turns bloody red, burial and overhead shot of Ash. Well presented horror touch with dark comedy. It's special effects and gor...

The Evil Dead.

The Evil Dead.

Having just freshly come out a home screening of The Evil Dead, I'm not too sure what to say. I mean, it wasn't a bad film, hell no, it's just not what I was expecting.
Now, I've always thought of Ash as a 110% bad-ass, la Army of Darkness, but here he's a fairly bog-standard horror film protagonist. He has no one-liners or awesome battle scenes. But I suppose that was saved for what appears to be a remake, Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn. Fair enough.
Now, I was told by a friend who's opinion in films I trust, that The Evil Dead can be taken as either a horror or black comedy. To be perfectly honest, I found neither. If there was dark comedy, I didn't find it. I didn't chuckle or smile once. As for the horror, it was of the low budget gory kind, which simultaneously adds ...
