The 2012 Blu-Ray release has several subtle digital alterations to remove visible lighting and camera equipment, hair in the camera gate, and steadies the matte painting shots of the moon on the horizon, along with the ending stop-motion sequence. In addition, Rob Tapert standing in the background when the Oldsmobile drives over the bridge has been digitally erased. See more »
The Evil Dead is a film that scared me. In fact, everyone I spoke to has been scared of this film.
It really is a horrible film. You feel sorry for the characters in it. They are trapped in a cabin in the woods with some evil looking demons. The forest itself is alive and there is no way out. When I first watched this film I wanted the good guys to die because I felt sorry for them.
This film is one of the great horrors like The Omen, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Nightmare on Elm Street. There are some truly creepy scenes in the film. The scariest scenes are where the girls are possessed by the demons. The other really scary scene is where the demon is in the cellar-I couldn't stop thinking about that scene.
The best horror films are the ones where the characters are in hopeless situations with no easy way out. The Evil Dead is one of those films. It really is creepy. Make sure you watch this film during daylight hours. Those with a nervous disposition should avoid.
