The Evil Dead: The Book Of The Dead (Special Edition)

5

Championed by Stephen King, distributed simultaneously in cinemas and on video and dragged through the courts on grot charges from the tabloids... Sam Raimi’s groovily demonic horror didn’t exactly come quietly. Even now it has the power to shock (the tree-rape remains a wincer) but is wholly deserving of its place in the fanboy hall of fame – full of as much in the way of daring and imagination as squished eyeballs. Part II may have had the polish, but it’s the original that packs the punch.
