The film is about five friends who go up to a secluded cabin for the weekend and run into, you guessed it, nothing but evil. They immediately run into problems when Cheryl (Ellen Sandweiss) is taken over and draws a picture of a book with a face on it. Then a basement door pops open and they find an ancient book and a recorder. It turns out an archeologist had stayed at the cabin before and studied a Sumerian Book of the Dead. They begin listening to his recordings about his work which unleashes the demons contained within the book. They possess the forest, and eventually members of the group.
For basically having no money Rami was able to create an amazing film. The trees attacking Cheryl for example was creepy and very original as well. The later effects look real cheesy based upon today’s standards but they give a real feel to the movie. Finally, who doesn’t love Bruce Campbell? There’s nothing of his smart ass comments that he became known for but you get his earliest acting job here.
The bonus commentaries by Sam Rami and Bruce Campbell are great to watch after you’ve seen the whole things. The Campbell one is hilarious because his commentary gets to come out. He adds great trivia like the actors didn't use their real names, there was no basement in the cabin in Tennessee they used so that sequence was all filmed in Michigan and more.

Extra Special Features over 2 and a half hours of extras.
if you don't mind the 'B' movie, low budget, shlock horror genre and haven't seen this one before (are you dead or pre-teen?) then you must give this a try. The characters are way over the top and make all the classic mistakes that 'victims' always do, but this film does them even more obviously than others, proving beyond doubt that 'horror victims' are truely stupid.
So pull up the chair, get the mates around, turn off the lights, get some popcorn and have yourself a good old fashined scare fest with this classic. Mind you, you may not want to eat once the gore kicks in. Alternatively, just watch it with someone who screams a lot and you wont be disapointed ..... now where is that copy of Evil dead II....
