THE EVIL DEAD, Director Sam Raimi's (Darkman, Quick & The Dead, Army of Darkness) first feature film, is a true cult classic in every sense of the word. Originally released in 1982, THE EVIL DEAD tells the tale of a group of friends who go to a cabin in the woods, where they find an unspeakable evil lurking in the forest. 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. One by one, the teens become deadly zombies. With only one remaining (Bruce Campbell), it is up to him to survive the night and battle

Trivia: The white liquid that often emits from the possessed after injured or maimed is 2% milk that Sam Raimi chose to incorporate, not to show how these aren't normal beings, but also to mix it up so the MPAA wouldn't give it an X rating. (more)

Goofs: Continuity: When Ash has destroyed the enemies and comes out of the cabin, you can see first that the door closes slowly after it has been open, but after the camera shows a view of the forest and shows Ash again, you can see that the door has slightly gone open again. (more)
