The Evil Dead

US, 1981, 85mins, Cert.18
Halloween Special

Film description

A genuine classic of the horror/comedy genre that fully deserves its reputation as a must-see cult film. A grimy, gore-filled, and blackly hilarious tale of five student friends vacationing in an isolated cabin and the gruesome events that unfold after they inadvertently unleash a horde of evil spirits. Raimi’s seminal horror has been imitated many times, but never bettered,

The Evil Dead was the birth of an independently-spirited, viscerally- minded new wave in low budget horror cinema.
