    THE EVIL DEAD: My favorite horror film

    I first saw THE EVIL DEAD a few years back. Initially, I was a bit surprized at the level of gore used in this movie. But I grew to love the films classic horror style (which is heavily drawn from George A Romero's Night of the Living Dead, Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and other earlier horror films) mingled with Sam Raimi's enormously original camera work. Even better are the unsettling, disturbing sound effects and occasionally creepy score that present themselves at just the right moments throughout the film. At times, wrenching, startling noises will jolt you out of your chair, and at others low drones and wind will create a suspensful and creepy atmosphere the likes of which not many horror movies contain. The film's story is unoriginal and expendable at best, but it is aided heavily by Tom Sullivans artwork. For example, ''The Book of the Dead'' doesn't sound significant in any horror movie, but the actual book (which I own now, thanks to special edition DVD) plays such a big role in the movie (it was the films original title), you find yourself actually paying attention to the thing. The bottom line is, no film tops THE EVIL DEAD's level of gore, entertaining camera work, creepy atmosphere, raw in-your-face violence, unrelenting disturbing sound effects, and downright fun. If you love horror and don't own this film, well, get it.

    A great horror flick

    A great film with a low budget. It has great camera angles and a great style. Im only 13 and I have seen the movie about 50 times and it still spooks me.
