Evil Dead

Five friends unleash an ancient curse and must fight a blood-thirsty demon to survive in a secluded cabin.


Why watch this film?

Pointed out as a "reimagining" of the first installment of the 'Evil Dead' franchise created by Sam Raimi, this movie can be summed up as a much more serious remake, with an almost identical premise but without Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell). A group of young friends decide to spend a weekend in a remote cabin in the middle of the forest, but the unfortunate finding of the Book of the Dead (or Necronomicon) puts them against brutal demonic possessions. The physical comedy established by Campbell and Raimi since the second installment is forgotten here, in favor of a subtext about dependency and mental illnesses that works surprisingly well together with an extreme level of violence, perhaps the highest of the franchise. Although it deviates from what had been seen in earlier editions in terms of tone, it is a worthy - and effective - addition to the iconic horror franchise.
