Time to go back in our time machine to the year 1981!! A lot of things were happening around that time, and many probably missed this less than $500K movie, until later on in life! We’re talking about a movie that kicked off Bruce Campbell‘s career! Of course, we’re talking about The Evil Dead!
“Ashley “Ash” Williams (Bruce Campbell), his girlfriend and three pals hike into the woods to a cabin for a fun night away. There they find an old book, the Necronomicon, whose text reawakens the dead when it’s read aloud. The friends inadvertently release a flood of evil and must fight for their lives or become one of the evil dead. Ash watches his friends become possessed, and must make a difficult decision before daybreak to save his own life in this, the first of Sam Raimi’s trilogy.”
What happens when you read from the book of the dead? Apparently everyone you know gets possessed no matter what, and the deadites walk the Earth! This movie does a lot with its small budget, that a lot of big budget horror films weren’t doing at the time! If somehow you’ve made it this far in life without seeing this movie, go watch it before you listen to the episode! Then when you’re done with the episode go watch all the rest of the Evil Dead universe, in anticipation of a new series coming very soon! You won’t regret it!
