Hey there all you Creepy Cabin Crawlers !! Axemasters back in the dungeon on this fine morning with a horror treat from the golden age of Gore !! The Evil Dead !!!
|"Flossing really makes my gums bleed !!"|
Its the weekend and five friends head up into the woods to spend a couple days of R&R time (not!!) away from the city ! They drive up into the hills , cross an old rickety bridge and head down a veritable cart path to get to the "Cabin" They've rented . (More like a shack !!) They pull up and everybody gets out of the car (ash mobile ! )
and scott goes to the front door to unlock it . The swing on the porch is swaying back and forth , banging into the wall all the time he is fumbling with the keys . The second he gets the door open , the swing ..... stops !! (Gulp!) This sets the mood for the events to come .

Okay , if thats not reason to leave ... then we have a Horror Movie ! The prof starts to recite some creepy lines and incantations ..... Conda Conda.......... and that when A window blows inward !! Needless to say , an unspeakable Evil is unleashed upon our hapless gang of granola munchers ! And a battle ensues against the forces of darkness and sorrow , of such Epic proportions , that it spilled over into two sequels !! ( and god willing ... a forth ! Although Bruce's famous chin is in competition with his other chins these days !!)
Now bare in mind . When The Evil Dead came out , this was one scary film . People have become far harder to scare nowadays ! I have one friend who was about 16 years old when he saw it at the show (back in the days when sneaking underage was an art form !) . He said it freaked him out so bad , he walked alone , looking over his shoulder every couple of seconds , hurrying along the dark and windy streets to get home ! The film is chocked full of blood and guts with a vintage , No CGI look that true horror fans will love ! Its a wild ride and weather it scares you or not , is still great to watch on a dark windy night (in a cabin in the woods perhaps ! Yikes !)
