The Evil Dead

La Casa

1982

Sam Raimi
Director
Renaissance
Production Company

Five friends spend the weekend at a remote cabin up in the Tenneesee woods, where they are systematically possessed by evil demons lurking outside in the darkness.

Cult horror flick which was prosecuted by the UK government and was one of the first movies to be placed on the Video Nasties Act. Today it looks tame in comparison to the other stuff out there but at the time it was truly a frightening experience.

Made for little money and a lot of enthusiasm by the nineteen year old Raimi and friends this movie packed a lot of scares a few laughs and some flashy directing seldom equalled by Hollywood product.

Followed by Evil Dead II (1987), and Army Of Darkness: The Medieval Dead (1992).
