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
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.

Im gonna live a rockstar life. Money, b***hes, and fame. Because my mommy said I can do anything I put my mind to.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
