Because we're celebrating Ash Wednesday all over the site today, I decided to watch The Evil Dead, the low-budget 1981 horror film that put director Sam Raimi on the map and introduced Bruce Campbell as the schlocky, blood-spattered hero for generation
Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell have made nine movies together. Both have proven they’re more than capable of working on their own, but something feels right when they’re together, even if it’s just for a split second. They belong side by side because each has a knack the other could never get anywhere else.
I love Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy. I have seen all three films a thousand times each and I will probably watch them thousands of times more. They’re funny, they’re scary, they’re sick and they’re awesome, but most importantly they’re filled with cinematic moments that I nor any other fan will ever forget.
