More info

The Evil Dead is a 1981 horror film written and directed by Sam Raimi, starring Bruce Campbell, Ellen Sandweiss, and Betsy Baker. The film is a story of five college students vacationing in an isolated cabin in a wooded area. Their vacation becomes gruesome when they find an audiotape that releases evil spirits.

The film premiered in Michigan on October 15, 1981. The film was extremely controversial for its graphic terror, violence, and gore, being initially turned down by almost all U.S. film distributors until aEuropean company finally bought it in the Cannes Film Festival marketplace in May 1982. It was finally given a US release in early 1983. The film was a moderate success at the box office, grossing a total of $2,400,000 in the U.S upon its initial release, against a budget of probably no more than $400,000. Despite getting mixed reviews by critics at the time, it has since developed a cult following. The film has spawned two sequels, Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness, and a stage musical; work on a script for a further film has started  although it was announced on July 13, 2011 that Raimi and Campbell would now shift focus to a remake of the original film.
