The Evil Dead

The Evil Dead ★★★★½

Still amazes me to see the level of craft on display for this really low-budget horror film. It manages to toe the line between classically made ghostly horror, using suggestions in key spots and being outright upsetting in other places - with Rami's trademark absolutely wild moving camera and ever-increasing mayhem. Yeah, it's not Evil Dead 2 levels of crazy but it's interesting seeing the movie gradually start to move in that direction towards the either.
