No review neccesary,cause if you are any kind of horror fan(Young or old)and you haven't seen this than just ....go make time and watch this...over and over and over again,then slap yourself for having not seen it earlier.
The Evil dead,of course directed by Sam Raimi is definitely one of those movies you can watch over and over and over again...and never get tired of it.I can honestly say I watch it at least once and month.They definitely don't make them like this anymore,low budget meets high imagination is one of my favorite lines I read describing the Evil Dead,it just nails the whole aspect of Raimi's film.
Tree branches sexually assaulting a helpless young women,a pencil not only plunged into someones ankle but repeatdly gouged and swirled around while in there. The we have girlfriends turning into demons and tauting their boyfriends with nursery rhymes,not to mention a plethora of dismemberment's,all done with just the right amound of campiness and creepiness,balancing them perfectly.Raimi also of course used his homemade Steadicam for numerous point of view shots of the demonic force coming at us.
A cult classic that of course has 2 sequels or if you want 1 sequel and 1 remade ..with a bigger budget and both are of course fun but they really don't mix the scares and humor as well as the original did.The Evil dead just has that certain charm about it,no one expected it to become such a classic.
Oh yeah and Bruce Campbell is in this
some of my favorite lines
Kill her if you can, loverboy.
You will die! Like the others before you, one by one, we will take you.
We're going to get you. We're going to get you. Not another peep. Time to go to sleep.
I'm gonna break your face!
I fear that the only way to stop those possessed by the spirits of the book is through the act of... bodily dismemberment.

Where do I start?I guess I could start at the one good thing,the cast,it had some pretty faces for us guys...thats about the only positive I could say about it though
Cast includes:Shannon Elizabeth,Diora Baird(mmmm)Monica Keena and Bobbi(not a guy)Sue Luther and a out of shape tired looking Edward Furlong.
Plot:Slutty Angela(Shannon Elizabeth) is throwing a Halloween bash at the legendary Broussard Mansion(which is New Orleans" legendary haunted spot). So long as you have money you can get in and get drunk,and get high and fuck.Of course Havoc soon occurs as a group of seven is stranded in the mansion.Little do they know that there are some demons laying in the basement waiting to be reanimated by some dumb-asses.The demons soon start possessing them one by one and we learn that if they possess all seven of these people they can rule the world...really.The trick is the demons only have till dawn to make this happen.Can the group survive till dawn??
Nudity:For such as hot cast it's kind of a shame there isn't more nudity,not that its all I look for but when you assemble a cast of hotties like that we should get something other then a few brief shots.I was waiting for Bobbi Sue's Luthers breasts to pop out of the top the whole time,I think that held my attention more than the rest of the movie.
Gore:I guess I can give it away but Diora Bairds character gets killed by anal sex,yes you heard it right.She also magically jams lipstick into her nipple and pulls it out of her cooter,I kid you not.Other than that there isn't much to make note of,your average amount of gore.
Creepiness:None whatsover,I wasn't expecting to watch a serious horror movie,I knew it was somewhat campy but there was no tension whatsover and not even many cheap/jump scares.
Final Say:Not the worst remake I have ever seen but I do feel they could have pushed the envelope a little more,after all it was direct to dvd.I also found more than a few parts absolutely ridiculous.Worth a watch or rental but do not buy.
