5.0 out of 5 stars Come get some ..., 31 July 2003
This review is from: The Evil Dead Trilogy [DVD] (DVD)
They come out at night. Their appearance is hideous as they scream out "JOIN US! JOIN US!", and the only way to stop their unearthly howling is through the act of bodily dismemberment. Yes, that's right -- whatever you do, beware of Evil Dead fans.
But then, as the old saying goes, if you can't beat them you might as well join them. This boxset boasts on the front cover that it is the "Definitive" collection, and that claim is entirely accurate. Whether or not you've been a fan from the start, this DVD trilogy will clue you in on the world of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead.
From the low budget charm of the first Evil Dead, through the slapstick gore of Evil Dead 2 finally arriving at the action-fest that is Army of Darkness. The Evil Dead's ability to change style throughout the different films is what keeps it so interesting.
The first disc containing the original Evil Dead serves almost as a crash course in how to get your own film made, as well as star Bruce Campbell's hilarious "Fanalyses" documentary which will familiarise you with exactly how insane the fans of Evil Dead and other films and TV shows can be. The second disc contains information on the making of Evil Dead 2 while there is a disappointing amount of visual content regarding Army Of Darkness, and even the video quality on the DVD itself I noticed is a little sketchy at times. However, the bonus in this collection is the fourth disc which contains even more content and documentaries regarding the trilogy which seem to be made by the fans for the fans.
I would definitely recommend this collection to both Evil Dead fans and Evil Dead fans-to-be, for the simple reason that there are very few more entertaining ways to spend an evening in with friends then to sit down and watch the Evil Dead trilogy.
