Secured cult classic status [this film you should see before you die]
Sam Raimi broke new ground with this film in style & substance
Bruce Campbell is an awesome B movie actor [His character Ash has been copied by other movies & video games alike--Duke Nukem comes to mind]
Filled with countless one-liners ["You're going down!" & "Groovie!"]
All zombie/horror films where the hero uses a chainsaw owes a debt to this movie
Evil laughing demonically possessed deer's head
The Necronomicon Ex-Mortis is the coolest horror prop of all time
Possessed hand that flips Ash the bird
The remixed sound is outstanding
The special features are great, especially the making of Evil Dead 2 [It's Ted Raimi in the possessed old lady makeup]
The stop-motion animation & minitures don't hold up well to HD viewing [It was decent for 1987]
NOTE: Sam Raimi's director calling card is to have the 1973 Oldsmobile that Ash drives in all of his films. Much like Stanley Kubrick always had a bathroom scene in his films, Raimi includes this car. It's in Spiderman driven by Uncle Ben when he is killed. The next film "Army of Darkness" is also pretty good, but not groundbreaking like this one. I am not really a fan of the original Evil Dead. I've read that this edition is better than the original blu-ray release, but I have not seen that one to compare. Overall, you must see this film!
