The The Evil Dead wiki last edited by mk111 on 06/07/13 12:56PM View full history

In the summer of 1979, a group of Detroit friends with $375,000 raised from local investors headed for a cabin outside of Morristown, Tennessee to make a film about five college students possessed by an ancient "Book of The Dead". The filmmakers' goal was to create "The Ultimate Experience in Grueling Terror" , as a movie so relentless that it would stand forever as a landmark in modern horror history. When it was released in 1980, it was immediately recognized worldwide as one of the most ferociously original films ever made. Twenty years late, this is THE EVIL DEAD like you've never seen or heard it before.
 
Ever-present, ever-listening , the Evil Dead lie in wait for the one ancient incantation that will give them license to possess the living. Watch in horror as five vacationing college students unwittingly resurrect these slumbering demons, and are forced into battle with the supernatural forces that occupy the forests and dark bowers of man's domain. They find the
Necronomicon, the book of the dead, and the taped translation of the text. Once the tape is played, the evil is released. The innocent must suffer. The guilty must be punished. One-by-one, the students are possessed by these demons whose thirst for revenge is insatiable. As the night wanes, only one man remains... Ash. He must now defend himself while trying to uncover the horrible secret of THE EVIL DEAD.
 
THE EVIL DEAD will pull scream after scream from the base of your spine and from the depths of your soul.
