Evil Dead is the cult classic horror film that has spawned multiple movies & the TV series, Ash vs Evil Dead. Evil Dead films are the quintessential movies of horror-comedy genre. I’ve seen it best described as “slapstick gore.”
So, like most horror movie plots of the 70s & 80s, Evil Dead follows the same plot line of a group of teenagers/young adult partying it up in a cabin in the woods & everyone dies (spoilers I guess) except the one with common sense… the lone survivor. However, Evil Dead isn’t a slasher film of the 80s, but demons & demonic possession.
There are good horror movies & there are bad horror movies. Bad horror movies, to me, are the ones that try way too hard to be edgy & gory. But then there are the ones that are bad on purpose. And that is Evil Dead.
I enjoy all horror from the scary AF to the cheesy B movies that are straight to VHS/DVD. If you are a fan of the cheesy, not taking itself too seriously horror films, you will enjoy Evil Dead. And all the rest of them.
