Evil Dead, an abyss of absolute terror
Ultimate terror at its most violent is unleashed in the hardcore horror Evil Dead. The poster states that it is 'the most terrifying film you will ever experience'. Be warned and be very, very afraid.
And if you think this is an exaggeration, go ahead, be daring and sleep with your lights on. Terrorising filmgoers for more than 30 yearsWhen The Evil Dead opened in theatres and drive-ins around the world in 1981, terrorising filmgoers with its story of five young friends who go to a remote cabin in the woods to party and accidentally release unspeakable evil forces, it launched the careers of director Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert and actor Bruce Campbell.
With Evil Dead, a bold reimagining of one of the most original and successful horror movies ever made, producers Raimi, Tapert and Campbell bullies a new generation of filmgoers with a combination of 21st-century technology and classic hardcore horror elements.Raimi made a wise decision in choosing young director Fede Alvarez to tell his ghost story to a new generation, with pristine sound and picture on the big screen, seen for the first time as it was always meant to be. Fortunately, Raimi was not too precious about his demon baby, and thankfully permitted Alvarez to take it to the extreme.
New Zealand visionary Avarez and his screenwriting partner Rodo Sayagues delivers a startling new take on The Evil Dead that remains true to the essence, while introducing new characters and making subtle changes to the plot.
