The Evil Dead

Year: 1981

Genre: Horror

Duration: 85 mins

Starring: Bruce Campbell, Ellen Sandweiss, Richard DeManincor

Director: Sam Raimi

Five friends travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons. Raimi's seminal horror made a cult icon of Bruce Campbell and turned its director into hot property. Much imitated, but never bettered, The Evil Dead was the birth of an independently-spirited, viscerally- minded new wave in low budget horror cinema.
