A classic for any modern Horror fan, the original Evil Dead is almost considered these days a comedy. A group of friends researching a cassette recording of the Necromicon, the Book of the Dead, in a mountain cabin encounter a whole lot more than they ever bargained forBruce Campbell is the lead, Ash, who in this iconic first movie discovers his innate ability to run, fight Deadites, and in general be a badass! The film also happens to be one of Director Sam Raimis first runs into film making at all, and boy did he nail it. A little bit of everything for the discerning Horror fan – the jump scares, the grossout factor, props and costumes and makeup and lighting and sets oh my, and my personal favorite, nary a CGI bit in sight as far as I can tell. If you’re preparing to start a new Horror fan on the road to the right kind of Horror film, The Evil Dead is for you!
