In the summer of 1979, a group of Detroit friends with $375,000 raised from local investors headed for a cabin outside of Morristown, Tennessee to make a film about five college students possessed by an ancient "Book of the Dead." The filmmakers' goal was to create "The Ultimate Experience in Grueling Terror," a movie so relentless that it would stand forever as a landmark in modern horror history. When it was released in 1982, it was immediately recognized worldwide as one of the most ferociously original horror films ever made. "The Evil Dead," director Sam Raimi's ("Darkman," "Quick & The Dead," "Army Of Darkness") first feature film, is a true cult classic in every sense of the word. Originally released in 1982, "The Evil Dead" tells the tale of a group of friends who go to a cabin in the woods, where they find an unspeakable evil lurking in the forest. They find the "Necronomicon," the "Book Of The Dead," and the taped translation of the text. Once the tape is played, the evil is released. One by one, the teens become deadly zombies. With only one remaining (Bruce Campbell), it is up to him to survive the night and battle "The Evil Dead".
