|Review Summary and Plot Commentary about The Evil Dead|
|THE EVIL DEAD is a movie written and directed by Sam Raimi in 1982.
Tennessee. Five friends have rented a cabin lost in the woods. They find in it the Necronomicon, a book made of flesh and blood. While hearing the taped translation of the book, they unvoluntarily release a powerful evil force that won't be satisfy before the four friends are...let's say, dead.
A classic with tremendous travellings, nasty human transformations and Bruce Campbell.
