Evil Dead, The (1983) 
The Evil Dead review
4/4 stars

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 gore was just right, and its pace doesn't slow down even to the last shot. Campbell's fantastic performance sells the movie. The Evil Dead influence is incredible since it had remakes, spin-offs and tie-ins including a musical and comic mini-series. Surely it has been on of several lists of this genre to be emulated.
