Review by Ken
4 stars out of 4

Proudly billed as 'The Ultimate Experience In Grueling Horror', this cult horror-classic certainly lives up to the hype it has built around itself in the years since its release. Gore enthusiasts will find PLENTY to revel in delight here; while those who are not quite accustomed to shockingly graphic scenes of blood and dismemberment might just find themselves regurgitating last night's dinners. Plot revolves around a group of teenagers; led by Ash (BRUCE CAMPBELL) and friends who spend the night in a cabin in the remote woods and are assaulted by terrifying forces of the undead once the sun goes down. The movie remains a terrific example of how you can make a really effective horror movie by using simple claustrophobic settings and frenzied, almost deranged camerawork. All this despite having a drastically low budget that clearly shows in certain scenes. Though not for everyone, THE EVIL DEAD is compulsory viewing for any self-respecting horror fanatic. Who would ever have guessed though; that the makers of this movie, Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert would someday go on to produce such mainstream TV fare as Hercules and Xena: Warrior Princess?
