1 review about Evil Dead (Special Edition) (1983)


  • Dec 4, 2001
As the darkness slides away, melting to light, you begin hovering through the tree's in a flowing series of whiplashes. Tree's split apart and crash to the ground from some unknown force. Little do you know, as you enter an old cabin in the woods, that this will be your last night to live...if Ash has anything to say about it.
Made on a next to nothing budget, Evil Dead is still as disturbing today as when it was released. Do you know of any other horror's plastered with the NC-17 rating? Ultra-gore and erupting goo, with flying chainsaws and shotgun shells splatter throughout the cabin's interior. Imagine your sister, suddenly starting to predict the poker cards in your hand, one after the other, then jerking violently she levitates into the air spewing out incantation's and words of warning. Clock's stop, screams ring out...and what follows is one of the most graphically inclined series of horror segment's to ever be placed on film. As Blair Witch left everything to the imagination, Evil Dead leaves nothing to the imagination. After literally watching thousands of movies in my life this is by far the most disturbing. The last three times I have taken it to friends houses, they have made me take it out of the player within the first 20 minutes. How long can you last?
But, as gruesome as Evil Dead is, you will not likely find better representation of Good versus Evil. Ash, the hero, watches his friends around him turn into these hideous flesh craving creatures, and he must use everything good and strong that he can muster, to fight off the darkness. Turn out the light's, crank up the volume, and cheer for Ash.

(WARNING: When I say you have been warned, you have been warned, the sound and the images are extremely disturbing. It easily, with a little more, could have gone for the X rating. If robocop originally got an X rating, this would have tackled it.)

-It is still banned in several countries, including Finland.-
