Five friends take their car to a remote hut in the woods for a weekend. Things take a macabre turn when one by one they are colourfully possessed by the titular ghouls leaving only Ash (Bruce Campbell) to fend them off. The story of Sam Raimi’s debut is a fascinating one: Raimi, Campbell and Robert Tapert were school friends who went everywhere together and shared a love of the cinema. When they decided to make their own movie, they did it all themselves and gave birth to a unique horror franchise. Full of grungy charm and squelchy suspense, with a bit of tongue in cheek humour, The Evil Dead is an enjoyably nasty experience.
