A Bruce Campbell classic. This is the movie that launched a thousand cheap horror movies. The difference between this one and the many that came after? This one is scary. With no budget and no famous actors director Sam Raime managed to create one of the most enjoyable horror movies ever filmed. Some young people go off to the woods to a secluded cabin for a weekend, had they never even seen a horror movie? They find a tape recorder, a man on the tape reads a mysterious passage from “The Book of the Dead”. The mysterious passage unleashes an evil force, and then the fun begins. There are two sequels, Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn, and Army of Darkness. All three movies have achieved must-see status.
