This is why there are comment section in most movie site not everyone agrees to a movie. I say if you don't like something then don't watch every movie has bad quality in which us the viewer are going to comment on.Evil dead was a good movie the director wasn't trying hard but with the budget that he was given he made a classic which is still being view today..

ugh, i can't even begin to explain how much i love this film

Posted by traild

I saw the new one first and thought it was just alright, and everyone raved about the original... So I came over... This movie did just about as much for me as the new one. It was just okay for me... Now don't get me wrong, I do enjoy other Bruce movies... this one was just not my cup of tea...

Posted by janefreakindoe

that was really good for an 80's flick

Posted by webcutie

This movie is crazy good just saw it last Halloween for the first time. It was nothing i ever expected and funny too-horror/gore/comedy and a interesting story/ This movie is an easy 5/5 for me

Posted by samiah90

This was my first time watching this film. I felt like it was vital that I watch the original before the new version came out. Well, I thought this movie was hilarioooouuuus. It wasn't scary at all. If this scared you, then wow.... ALL of the characters were ridiculously stupid, and used little to no logic. It was also pretty predictable. Don't get me wrong, I didn't NOT like it. It was entertaining no doubt, but it was just so corny that I couldn't stop laughing at most of the scenes. A lot of it had me going, Seriously? Wtf? I don't want to spoil anything for anyone though. You'll have to watch it for yourself lol. I know the newer version is supposed to be more serious, but I hope it'll still retain at least a little humor.

the best of the trilogy, Bruce Campbell should be in the Dos Equis commercials as being the most interesting man in the world, lol.

what a classic!! It used to freak me out when i was a kid

Posted by raspberryjtsix

I remember this movie i was young when i watched it made me sick and i was so terrified so it not suitable for young children to watch it causes nightmares beyond wonders.. rate it a 5/5

Posted by love_love_movies

this was quite hilarious lots of gory bits a decent watch

Posted by duncanisme

This is proof that gory horror can be done well, even though it's not entirely serious. It was an absolutely wonderful film. 9/10

Posted by sab1960

Another one that scared the poo outta me! A classic that is well worth a watch 3/5

Posted by neelheel

Kick started my love of horror films, it ticks all the right boxes. Reading about the making of it is almost as good as the film, really interesting, punk ass and passionate film making. It really shows through. Huge fun!

Posted by MagicSlaughter

Classic movie. Rate 7/10

Posted by TheLonersManual

I loved this movie. I enjoyed the story, loved the special effects ( This is back before they relied so heavily on computer animation for special effects) and the gore as well. It kept me on the edge of me seat and I kept wondering just how they were going to get out of each predicament. Great movie that kept me guessing and even gave me a nightmare after I went to sleep...And I never have nightmares!

Posted by virkinator

wtf this is so shit.. was a waste of my time i dont know why people said its good

Posted by hi_im_sandra

Trust me, this is WAAY better than the remake.

Posted by cheshrkat

Easily my favorite horror film! Don't expect a great script or award winning FX though. This movie has more imagination and cleverness than just about anything produced in the past decade. If you get the chance, watch the movie with Bruce Campbell commenting! It's priceless!! I can't recommend this enough!

Posted by grrrrrrrrr

It's more than a B movie, it's a CULT classic. There's even a musical.

Posted by palsarmir

I just came back from the theater watching the new one.I didn't give it much of a chance coz I figured there's no Evil dEad without Bruce Campbell!But I admit I was wrong Big time the New one is frigging Scary shit!It has to be one of if not the scaeriest horror flicknI have ever seen! Great Watch!

Posted by Chienrouge

I saw this movie when it was first released and stumbled across it by accident. I am going to watch it again....

Posted by Franky4Fingerzz

The trailer just came out for the Remake of this movie. This is such a classic movie with a die hard cult fan base. I love this movie
