"The Evil Dead" was made on an estimated $350,000 budget. When Sam Raimi later made Spider-Man 3 (2007), it was filmed on a $350,000,000 budget, 1000 times the cost of "The Evil Dead", making it the most expensive motion picture produced at that time. See more »

This movie is the movie that started me into horror movies. I had seen horror movies before this but this is what made me a horror fan. if you haven't seen it i give this movie and its sequels my highest recommendation
there is everything in these movies. From disgusting horror, shock horror, spookie horror, and even a bit of humor. The only slight down side may be that it was made very low budget. This is covered over by the greatest actor of all time--------------BRUCE CAMPBELL. He is a great actor in all movies and this is his start. It is also the start of Sam Raimi's directing career. There is great directing, great acting, great fun, inventive camera angles, and even a little bit of nudity if you like that sort of thing. so watch and enjoy.
