EVIL DEAD

"A cult classic of the highest order, Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead is the rare 80's movie that actually feels worthy of its lofty reputation." - Film and Felt

Bruce Campbell stars in the cult classic tale of the Book of the Dead. Filled with absurd humor and a whole lot of demon gore. This auspicious feature debut from Sam Raimi -- shot on 16mm in the woods of Tennesse for around $350,000 -- secured the young director's cult status as a creative force to be reckoned with.

The nominal plot involves five vacationing college kids -- Ash (Bruce Campbell), his girlfriend Linda (Betsy Baker), and their classmates Cheryl (Ellen Sandweiss), Scott (Hal Delrich) and Shelly (Sarah York) -- making an unplanned stopover in an abandoned mountain cabin surrounded by impenetrable woods. Before settling in for the night, they come across an ancient-looking occult tome filled with dense hieroglyphics and macabre illustrations, a dagger fashioned from human bones, and a reel-to-reel tape recorder. Unaware of the after-effects, they played one of the tapes of ancient spells, and unleash demonic forces.
