All directors have to start somewhere, and this is Sam Raimi's first full length feature film. It's may have been seen as a trashy horror film at the time, but it's become a cult classic and the blood spattering story of a holiday gone wrong holds a fond place in many a
film watcher's heart.

We see a group of young students on their way to a secluded cabin hoping for a quiet break in the country. From the very first moments of the film Raimi creates an eery tension as the camera follows the group to suggest that there is somehow an unknown presence. Great use of sound ensures that you are never at ease and always on edge - even if you've heard nothing about this film - you'll instinctively know that things are about to turn sinister.

This shouldn't be a great film, it should be consigned to schlock horror history as one of many low budget horror films designed for the American drive-through market. But is hasn't been forgotten and for good reason; it was the debut feature from Raimi and it showcased one of most loved director-actor collaborations of the film industry, it also didn't take
itself too seriously and helped to create a new genre - 'comedy horror'.

It's true that there's not that much humour in Evil Dead, but it is there simmering underneath and whilst watching it you are always aware that the small team behind the film have a sense of fun and that adds a personal touch. It doesn't feel like a 'conveyor belt' flick which
picks out a few choice cliches from a well established set, instead it reinvents them in a way which only a true fan could by hand crafting them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Film, Awesome Release 17 Jan 2011
Evil Dead: Ultimate Edition [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

I'm not really going to review the film. Usually these reviews are meant to be about the product itself, so here goes.

THE EVIL DEAD is a classic low budget horror from the eighties. Enough said.

Now for the set. You get 3 discs in an awesome case, with amazing art. 2 discs contain the film. 1 disc is full of extras. There is also a poster in the set.

The film is presented in its original full screen format on one disc, whilst on the other it is presented in widescreen, its theatrical release, where the top and bottom have just been cropped out.

There are amazing extras such as:
. Two audio commentaries on the film by the cast and crew.
. The Evil Dead: Treasures from the Cutting Room Floor, which is outtakes and footage in final film.
. One by One We Will Take You: The Untold Saga of The Evil Dead, which is a documentary about the film.
. Life After Death: The Ladies of The Evil Dead, a documentary about the women who were in The Evil Dead.
. The Ladies of The Evil Dead Meet Bruce Campbell, an interview with Bruce and the Ladies about the film.
. Unconventional, a documentary about the fans at conventions.
. At The Drive-In, footage at a drive in screening where the actors and crew give out DVDs to fans.
. Reunion Panel.
. Discovering The Evil Dead, another documentary about the film.
. Make-up test.
. Theatrical trailer.
. 4 TV spots.
. Still gallery.
. Poster and Memorabilia gallery.
. Trailers for - Hatchet, Phantasm, Hellraiser, Re-Animator, and Behind the Mask.

Disk 1 - The film in widescreen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! 27 May 2008
By Ticks
the film is great even now and this is the best edition!!! the book is great and looks just like the prop. there is a load of extras on the disc such as the FANalysis. the bonus film Running Time is also a great film though it is a bit short. the film (RT) has been filmed in black and white and it is continuous shot (the transitions have been cleverly covered up and so it looks like its has all been filmed in one go). both films are highly enjoyable and show bruce campbell in all his b movie greatness. It is a great edition which is worth buying whether you are a die hard fan or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased with this edition. 18 Oct 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It must be safe to assume, that must people looking this title up, already know the movie. Great film right! I was 20 then I saw this for the first time, recommended by the local Video Shop. I remember it clearly! So you have never seen EVIL DEAD? Shame on you!
Wonderful to see it out on Blu. Picture and sound quality, fully lived up to my expectations."I'm used to the laserdisc version" For this release, Sony have included, for what I can tell, all the previous DVD extras, plus a Picture in Picture track and of cause the much talked about new commentary track. I found this track very informative and entertaining, at the end, Sam & Co. speak about the picture format, not a spoil it for you guys.
Speaking of the format, this Sony release, only have the modified 16:9 picture. In my opinion, it looks great on a 16:9 TV, not squeezed at all, but as other reviewers have pointed out, the picture is chopped - if you what the dual picture option? Make sure you order the Anchorbay region A Blu ray.
Anyway, I guess the question you are really looking for: Is this BD worth the upgrade? Absolutly, Evil Dead looks great on blu ray!
