Halloween Horror Movie of the day:The Evil Dead
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.
