Writer/Director SAM RAIMI’s relentless, gore-spattered debut is a landmark in horror cinema, a no-holds-barred onslaught of gruesome terror and nightmarish effects which has earned its rightful status as a legendary cult classic. Five college students travel to a remote cabin in the woods and unwittingly unleash a monstrous evil force hellbent on their total destruction. Now with newly restored state-of-the-art digitally remastered picture and loaded with incredible extras, THE EVIL DEAD is truly the ultimate experience in grueling horror.
Director Sam Raimi may now be renowned for his trilogy of Spider-Man films, but for many, it’s the Evil Dead films that hold a special place in their heart. Unsurprisingly, too, for here’s a horror film that’s got no sign of Hollywood studio interference, no wish to tone things down, and instead finds a massively talented film maker stretching a small budget to impressive ends.
The Evil Dead, along with its sequels, has built up a cult following since its original release, but it’s also earned a deserved respect too. For this is a film that’s jammed with energy, and genuinely bursting with ideas. Granted, in the years since its release, many have been mined by the horror genre. But there’s still so much to admire and enjoy.
The film, if you’ve not had the pleasure, stars Bruce Campbell as Ash, one of a group of five friends who head to a cabin in the woods on holiday. While there, unwisely as it turns out, they play a tape that they shouldn’t, and all hell breaks loose. It also sets loose a very enjoyable half and a half of stylish, and gory horror.
It comes out of its Blu-ray release surprisingly well, too. Here’s a film shot on old stock, that should be showing plenty of wear and tear. And yet the 1080p transfer here is a fine job, backed up by an always-welcome package of extras. The end result is both a fine way to enjoy the movie for the first time, or arguably the best way to revisit it. Either way, it’s very much a recommended buy. --Jon Foster

exactly what a horror movie is supposed to look like.
Critics and censors dismissed it as trash and not long afterwards it was relegated to the video nasty bin and banned. As silly as this may seem, that was the lunatic logic of James Ferman's BBFC. The fact that it is inventive and well directed was lost on them. And until fairly recently only cult audiences appreciated its value. With Sony's new Blu Ray we can all finally enjoy the uncut, definitive and best-looking presentation possible.
Originally released in 1981 as The Book Of The Dead, this was a feature length re-make of Sam Raimi's short film, Within The Woods. The plot (excuse) and story (violence) involves a quintet of friends, enjoying a few days of quiet at a remote cabin in the Tennessee woods. These are not Friday the 13th goofballs who want nothing but sex and skinny-dipping. They are realistic. And it all goes nicely until Scotty (Hal Delrich) finds an ugly-looking book (with a face) and an old reel-to-reel tape recorder in the basement. The tape is of an archaeologist explaining how he resurrected demons that took over his wife in the very same cabin. The professor is nowhere to be found, but the haunting burial rites and incantations written in Sumerian text in the ugly book, The Necronomicon Ex Mortis-Book Of The Dead, are on the tape also.Read more ›
when released onto the format, not sure whether it was the ground and trees outside the cabin moving or the evil emerging from the
cellar.....though buying the first two on Blu-ray when first released it has taken me till now to re-view the film....woos....maybe.
The film centres on 5 students - 'Ash' (Bruce Campbell) - 'Cheryl' (Ellen Sandweiss) - 'Scott' (Richard DeManincor) - 'Linda' (Betsy
Baker) and 'Shelly' (Theresa Tilly) who during a spring-break hire a remotely situated cabin.
Things quickly go wrong when during dinner the trap-door mysteriously fly's open, 'Ash' and 'Scott' investigate below, they find a tape
which they of course play,,,,bad move as it turns out, it releases demons and spirits upon them.
After 'Cheryl' is attacked and raped by possessed tree's she finds it difficult to convince the others of what had happened, however 'Ash'
agree's to take her to the nearest town to find somewhere else for her to sleep only to find the only bridge offering exit from the area
The evil will take hold of each in turn, they turn on each other, mayhem ensues.....will anyone walk away alive ?
Though a low-budget offering the film is truly dark and creepy.....will send a chill through your spine.
