Discovering Evil Dead
24 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i really think this movie was classic. funny but kinda scary at the same time. i have thought about that kind of stuff happening I'm sure u have as well. even though this flick was a bit laughable it was still a horror movie i would watch over and over again. my brother turned me on to this movie a long time ago and i couldn't believe they came out with a part 2. i liked this movie because it was well done and it made me jump. and i never jump at horror movies. i have seen some really bad horror movies and this was not one of them. it was like a clone of the re-animator now that was a movie. that guy was really demented. you have to love these movies. anyone who loves horror can enjoy these movies. well i hope i don't sound too stupid,but i loved this movie.
