Stephen King hailed THE EVIL DEAD as “the most ferociously original film of the year” when the film premiered in 1981. Shot on a shoestring budget, the film boasts impressive camera work and extremely over-the-top gore and graphic violence (the film was originally released independently with a self-imposed ‘No One Under 17′ rating and was banned in several countries.)
THE EVIL DEAD launched the career of director Sam Raimi (who would eventually direct the Spiderman series) and made star Bruce Campbell a cult movie icon, spawning two hit sequels: EVIL DEAD 2: DEAD BY DAWN and ARMY OF DARKNESS.
The EVIL DEAD trilogy has become a fan phenomenon, ranked among the most popular and acclaimed cult horror movies of all time!
“Nothing can prepare an audience for what they are about to see, because nothing punishes an audience like EVIL DEAD - especially on the big screen,” says Bruce Campbell. “I’m really glad it’s back. People are gonna be hurt.”
