THE EVIL DEAD

BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELL
MARCH 31, 2013

For a low-budget, straight out of film school horror flick, I can respect Sam Raimi and his original “The Evil Dead.” Not only does it carry the themes of many horror films to follow, but it is one of the grossest, demented cult horror films to come out of the last three decades.
