This was Sam Raimi’s first feature film and has since achieved epic cult status. There have been two sequels made, Evil Dead 2 & Army of Darkness. While Evil Dead 4 has been rumored for years, the release of “Drag Me to Hell”, Raimi’s triumphant return to the horror genre, prospects are looking good for another “Dead” sequel.
The acting is quite over the top, but that’s part of its charm. The make up effects are pretty creative and effective for the budget that had to work with. The camera work and shot selection is innovative and well done. This is a film that stands the test of time and will be enjoyed for generations to come.
