Title: The Evil Dead
Post by: neuromancer1984@hotmail.com on December 27, 1998, 09:06:57 PM
 I find this movie to be an inspiration for anybody that wants to try their hand at amateur filmmaking. for the budget, it rocks. I still get chills watching the scene in the basement with the projector and the record player. Gross, but still an etertaining departure from (dare I say it?) I know what u did last summer!

Good movie, good effects for the budget, but Ash is a pansy. I guess I shouldn't have watched Army of Darkness first, I couldn't believe that Ash couldn't bring himself to chop up his zombie girlfriend. I was so stoked to see the chainsaw, and then...nothing! And that scene where he's walking around the cabin for like 45 minutes stalking the zombies...I found it hard to stifle a cheer when something finally punched through the door at him. Watch these movies in order, they get progressively better.

Evil Dead is one of the better horror movies out there. It mixes the scary with the funny, the humerous with the peverse, and leaves you feeling satisfied at the end. It's always best to watch the trilogy in order, starting here and finishing with the over-the-top Army of Darkness. Good stuff.

Campbell didn't get a 'rogering' at the end. What he did get was smacked in the mouth with the camera, knocking out most his front teeth. The rest of the series is dissapointing compared to this. Evil Dead 2 might have more gore, but it's a comedy and doesn't try to scare you at all. Army of Darkness is just lame, its a substandard comedy with no gore at all.

Evil Dead only 2 Slimes? What's the deal with that? No, seriously. I thought this was the best in the series. Army of Darkness was too adventury and Evil Dead 2, while I thought it was very good, was just a remake of this only more polished and comedic. This one was really really good, and as soon as I have any money I'm at Best Buy getting the Book of the Dead special edition.


P.S. Are you going to review Last House on the Left? Or the Baby?

The DVD has a great commentary - and I beleive Ted Raimi (Joxer and brother of co-producer Sam Raimi, who also produced this summer's Spider-Man film) was part of the crew.
Word has it when this film was released in New Zealand a girl named Lucy watched this film and commented on how sick the producer of this film must have been.
Years later she ended up working for the producer (and with his co-producers brother Ted).
Years after that they married and today she is knows as Lucy Tapert.
Don't get her angry or she'll throw her round killing-thing at you.

  To slime drops is a bit harsh for this movie I think. I would have given it four. I agree that it's not as good as the second but after the first twenty five minutes of relatively nothing this film becomes great. I love it when she chews her hand off, that part really does it for me. This film was incredibly well directed so a rating of two just doesn't seem fair.

I think you are pretty hard on Evil Dead. Yes, the story is ludicrous, yes the acting is atrocious, but hey, Sam Raimi does a wonderful job, and shows to all the Sonnenfeld & Shumacher of this world what can be done with little money, talent, invention, and the Coen brothers on your side :) Evil Dead almost invented a new filming style of its own, and certainly kicked some major butt when it was released in 83. Maybe one of the most important horror film of all time with the Exorcist and Dawn of the Dead. Too bad Raimi ended filming Kevin Costner in crappy movies...

Not much to add.  I agree with most of the below messages.  Evil dead 1 is very good.  The most complete of the three films.  It is hard to compare with evil dead2 as they are different visions of the same film.  Evil dead2 is excellent but it should not be compared to evil dead 1. They excell in different areas.  As for Army of darkness, it is fun to watch but it lacks the seamless magic of the first two.

I remember watching the first couple parts of this during school lunch last year (we had a cool writing teacher who let us watch stuff like anime at lunch time in his room) and several of us noticed this: Ash (only in this one though) looks a lot like Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

What in the Holy Hell is this horror clasic doing in the Bad Movies section? This is the very best. Contains some really gory shots and is really freaky. Originaly released in the theaters with an Unrated, it is out on video with a Not Rated and yet the MPAA should say this should br rated R or NC-17 (my ass it should be, that's a joke). And this was made in 1979, not 1982! 1982 is it's release date. Trust me this film is NOT chessy. Followed by EVIL DEAD 2 (1987) and ARMY OF DARKNESS (1992).

Why was this film only given two marks? That's blasphemy! The gods of gore are frowning upon you. The Evil Dead is the best of the trilogy, and that's saying something! Although I enjoyed the sequels,they seemed to put  humor at the forefront. But we're talking horror movies here. I thought Evil Dead suceeded on every level. I saw this one before the sequels so maybe that's why I thought it was better. But it has a real horror movie element that the sequels just didn't have. I really enjoyed Evil Dead 2 but I have to admit I was a little disappointed with Army Of Darkness. Although a fun film,I felt it took a wrong direction somewhere. I hear they are going to make a fourth installment. I hope they don't pull any punches with it and just let the body parts fly! Have a nice day.

For a low-budget (no budget?) film, Evil Dead had some really cool lighting and well set-up shots.  It was a good time had by all who I watched it with, whether they liked the filmmaking or the ridiculous amount of blood, guts, and tree rapes.


Title: The Evil Dead
Post by: Chadzilla on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
I had the displeasure of first seeing The Evil Dead during a theatrical run in Hong Kong in 1983.  I saw it with a bunch a rowdy classmates who heckled and laughed their way through the entire film and, to add insult to injury, almost all of the more flamboyant special effects were cut out.  I came away feeling that it was nothing more than an energetically made and vastly overrated cheap horror movie that was about as frightening as a dime store halloween mask.  During the summer of 1984, while visiting a friend in the states, I watched the film again on video, alone, and it scared me.  Too bad the first time I had seen it it had to be ruined by its "target audience."

Post by: Cham on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
Evil Dead is one of my all-time favorite movies. SO cheaply made, but really a very scary movie. Ash isn't chubby, and he sure as hell isn't pansy. He kicks demon ass in every direction. One of the first horror movies I ever saw and still one of my favorites. I give it a 5/5


Title: The Evil Dead
Post by: Dano on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
Here's a dissenting opinion: This movie was a big disappointment after all the hype this friend of mine gave me.  She convinced me to watch all three, and in my opinion, they get progressively better.  Army of Darkness was a good, funny comedy-horror movie in my opinion.  Evil Dead was far less entertaining.  It was nothing but gore by the bucketful.  That can be fun, but not all by itself. Evil Dead II seemed like exactly the same movie only better because it had more of a sense of humor.

Post by: The_Cynical_Critic on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
Isn't everyone a teen when they see this movie? I was.

I thought this movie was great. It wasn't AS gory as I was refered to by it's reputation, but it's better than that. It's very scary. It has an eery atmosphere that kept me in suspense the whole way through.

I'm not necessarily squeemish about gore but one part that got me in this movie (and in HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL) was when Linda got a pencil shoved through her ankle. That just grossed me out.

Post by: Trash on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
Ahh, Evil Dead. What else to say about it that hasn't been said already? An awesome movie, with lots of gore, a few slow parts, creepy monsters, the ultimate hero (Ash), and of course, the tree rapists. I still havn't seen the other two movies (will rectify that soon), but if the other comments are any clue, I expect a good movie. And two slimes? Damn, it needs at least one more slime to do the movie justice.

Post by: Gerard on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
This film scared me rigid when I first saw it as an impressionable teenager, and I'm pleased to say it still delivers shivers in abundance today. One black mark is the rape scene. It is crass, and forcefully demonstrates the director's misogyny.

Post by: Justin on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
When i first saw Evil Dead i was taken back for several reasons. For starters the film is awesome and very unique. I couldn't believe how groundbreaking the film for its time. No film that was made in the late seventies or early eighties can compete with The Evil Dead. Second, i couldn't believe that with a budget of $375,000 two stars were born. Sam Raimi has gone on to direct several criticly acclaimed films that include A Simple Plan and Spider-man. Bruce Campbell has gone on to star in several films and his own television series. Bottom line, a great movie like this only comes around in a long while and has such a strong impact on the movie industry.

Post by: (aka Troglo) on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
Evil Dead - The Mother of...of...no matter of what!
It's a really great movie (it's Raimi's "Masterpiece", like "Bad Taste" is Jackson's), i luv it.
Of course the masks of the possessed people look like stolen from the garbage of Jim Henson, and most of the actors aren't much better than any C-Porno-Star, but the atmosphere and the style of narrating the story is really great...if ya don't take it as a "serious" horrormovie.

The Evil Dead Trilogy - a great experience in entertainment!

...Oh yeah: The voice of the german Linda is great "Wir kriegen Dich, wir holen Dich wir werden Dich bekommen...Du ganz uns nicht entkommen"

Post by: lostmissy on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
I think the best thing about this movie was the atmosphere that pulled me into the movie. the creepy dark murky feeling that things aren't quite right and probably bad things are going to happen. 2 and army just didn't match up to that edgy tension in my opinion. Ash in this one wasn't a "hero" yet just a scared guy trying hard to survive. and the in the woods rape/sex/seduction scene is still a amazing and impressive piece of work!

This is the movie that introduced Bruce Campbell to the world. Yes, it is true that the remake was a bit more polished, but for a true horror fan, this was a low budget classic. I think your rating was kind of harsh...


Title: The Evil Dead
Post by: Hyperion X on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
Personally, this wasn't my favorite in the Evil Dead Series, but it was very cool. I cringe everytime Cheryl jams that pencil into Linda's ankle. God! That must hurt!
Anyway, I found that the funniest thing in the entire movie is when Ash says, "Oh, you bastards. Why are you torturing me like this?" I laughed because he sounds like the little twelve year old that just had his lunch money stolen from him. Well, in short, I liked this movie, but not very much. However, Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness are freakin' AWESOME!

Post by: Chris.P.Fish**** on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
Evil Dead was the first actual Gore fest I ever saw, so the first time I saw it I freaked out. It gave me a wierd nightmare all my freinds agreed that it was really freaky but after the 3rd time I saw it I realized it had quite a lot of humor and cheesy acting however it's still pretty freaky and Bruce Campbell did a great job. I give this film a 5 out of 5 even though most people will say ED2 was the pimp daddy of the trilogy (witch who can argue) I'd suggest anyone who hasn't seen it watch it alone first just before dawn for an ultimate scare. Best wishes "Crispy Fish"!

Post by: Rktikfox on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
I didn't think the movie was THAT bad. It was low budget, what dyu expect? Acrylic paint and fruit punch sort of look like blood. haha. Anyway it wasn't really a zombie knock off movie as lots of people deem it. The only flesh eating was evil Scotty biting Ash's leg. I wanted it to have zombies, beleive me. It was, in fact, Scotty chopping his girlfriend into little peices that made me watch the rest. The tree rape was random and vile. I thought it was kind of funny how Ash was squashed under a shelf 2 different times. But i felt sorry for Scott getting mauled by trees and Ash trying to make him drink what looked like watered down liquid soap.

Read Bruce Campbell's book "If Chins Could Kill." I had a lot more respect for this film after I read the chapter he wrote about it.  Making this movie was quite an ordeal for everyone involved. This book might also give anyone second thoughts as to whether they would want to enter movie making.

Post by: on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
Pretty much crap except for the Camera angles and gore. There is no need to see it. If anything see Evil Dead 2(Also see my reveiw, it's the one that ends with "And in the words of Ash:"GROOVY") And Army of Darkness. This movie ain't that great. Most likely two stars or less. Although Raimi does improve his skill in his sequels.


Title: The Evil Dead
Post by: Do on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
Hm, yes, Evil Dead is an incredible piece. Without Ash, the movie is nothing. Ash is the character who gives a sens to the movie. This is a great gore movie with a funy feeling that we want to see Ash chop everyone so he can have some silence time with his idle hand. I'm starting to think that these low budget movies are better than the unrealistic CG monster movies that are never original.

Great movie. If you're a Bruce Campbell fan, it's worth reading his autobiography, "If Chins Could Talk: Confessions of a B Movie Actor."  It's got a whole lot about Bruce Campbells first real movie, a movie that became a cult hit.  A true inspiration for anyone who has wanted to make films.

Je trouve que ce film est un des plus beau  que je trouves effrayant par exemple le passage du crayon directement dans le pied de linda c'est un passage tres sensible,aussi quand ash est souleve par scott le zombie et pour se degager lui enfonce ses deux pouces dans chaque oeil et le sang sort des yeux c'est un passage egalement tres sensible, et la musique et l'ambiance est gore,en fait il a tout ce q'il faut pour un bon film,c'est mon prefere dans les trois et le plus horrible car la premiere fois que je l'ai vu il m'a fait tres peur, en tout cas pour le premier film de sam raimi je le trouve super, je lui mets 10/10. C'est un film a voir et a revoir sans s'enlasser...

"Evil Dead" is a superb film, especially for the budget it had. "Evil Dead II" was a good horror/action comedy, and "Army of Darkness" was simply superb, with wonderful blends of humor and horror action.
Vive the Evil Dead series!

Like somebody else already said, I can't believe this movie would ever be bunched with truly bad movies. This movie scared the hell out of me! It's one of the few I've seen, before or since, that actually made me jump and feel the same sense Ash had of being trapped alone in a scary situation.

This one is just plain classic, not classically bad.

Post by: Paco on November 25, 2006, 04:09:49 PM
Sam Raimi or whoever wrote the script has NO IDEA what the Tibetan Book of the Dead is about. I read it myself, anyone can find it in a good library and it is the most wonderful piece of work I have ever read. Not designed to wake up the dead or to create zombies. Only to help a recent dead person to find its way to Eternity. It helps him not to be affaraid of it's own Yi-Dam, horrifying creatures that come to him and which represents parts of one's very self. The dead must recognize them as part of himself to have access to the path that will take him to the light and, if he's well guided by the monks who must read the book next to his body, he may as well become Buddha, that means achieve absolute enlightment. One thing is to make a funny movie, the other is to mock one of the wisest culture which humanity ever had.

Would have it been another book, I would perhaps have enjoyed the movie.

Eurm, the plot revolves round a Sumerian manuscript, NOT an Tibetan one... This Necronomicon idea was invented by HP Lovecraft (even though this version differs significantly from that one) and has been a main stay of the genre ever since, nothing to do with real life books you know.

Post by: George on November 25, 2006, 04:10:12 PM
This movies rocks hard!!!! For a low-budget horror flick that could have been easily overlooked among crappy splatter flicks like "House On Sorority Row", "Evil Dead" returns some dignity to the horror genre. Bruce Campbell may have been a wuss in the 1st movie, but the Ash character is one of the baddest action heroes of the latter 20th century. "ED2" is even better than the 1st! "ED3" (aka "Army Of Darkness") is good, but after two great, unrated, wild-ass gorefests, an R-rated movie is kind of a letdown. BTW, did anyone hear that a remake of "ED" is in the works? I think I read about this in Entertainment Weekly. Also, there was some talk about putting Ash in the next "Freddy vs Jason" movie. Can you imagine him up against those two? That would be a really kick-ass fight!

Evil Dead wasn't the greatest low budget film ever but it WAS influential.

Yes, it is slow at times but it does make up for it all simply with the tree rape scene and the pencil to the ankle scene.

The other 2 movies are superior, and I like how the Ash character progresses through the films!

I can't believe some people didn't like this film, this movie scared the crap out of Stephen King. I found the stabbing the pencil through the girls ankle scene very disturbing but this movie was great.

Classic movie but Campbell is not as funny as in Evil Dead II and AOD. Still, the violence is cool and some blackc omedy makes a delicious Evil Dead. Though we do not see the ghost, the film is very creepy. And the violence, well call it dirty, amusing or gross, it is brilliant. Can't believe how Raimi got selected to make Spiderman which was so subdued in violence. Still, this is one of Raimi's GROSSLY UNDER-RATED Classics. Cheryl being raped by a tree was quite weird for me. But it was rather humorous at times. Linda's 'We are gonna get you' is quite funny.

B-Movies are quite good. This is certainly the better horror film than the crap served nowadays(except The Hills have Eyes and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake).
Evil Dead pioneered the comedy horror series before Scream gave it a new dimension.

Evil Dead pioneered the comedy horror series before Scream gave it a new dimension.

Uh, there's been comedy-horrors for decades prior to Evil Dead. I think they may actually go as far back as the silent film era. Therefore, Evil Dead didn't "pioneer" it.

Raimi obviously cared a lot more about moving as quickly as possible from one cool camera trick/gory scene to another, and that keeps it from being a "good" movie as opposed to a collection of memorable scenes.  Still, it's obvious why most horror fans love this one.  There's a real exuberance, love and creativity to it that you don't see very often in low budget flicks.

As bad as it is this is the bad horror film by which all other bad horror films are ranked.  When someone tries to sell a script for a horror movie the first words out of his mouth are usually, "This script is just like Evil Dead, only..."  Interestingly, the girls in ED and EDII never acted before, never acted again, and have a webpage bragging about their involvement in these films. "Linda" has the dubious distinction of being the only character in any film in the history of motion pictures raped by a tree.

The cabin where ED and EDII were filmed was real, wasn't a set built for the films, and "mysteriously" burned to the ground a few years later. 

The scenes where the camera "flew" through the forest were filmed using a camera mounted on a board that Sam Raimi and his brother ran with through the forest.  It was called, not surprisingly, the "board-cam". 

There are numerous subtle and not-so-subtle tributes to the Three Stooges inserted throughout the ED trilogy.  Raimi includes some salute to the Three Stooges in all his films.

obviously the guy who wrote this article just looked at it without thinking and just watching how "cheesy" it is compared to what hollywood could do. I don't know.
This movie is just too brilliant to be put on Badmovies.org
One of the first underground films to hit a mainstream, hardcore fans status. Cheaply made, yet well done both in effects and atmosphere.
This film needs to be taken off.
