It’s back! The movie that Stephen King declared ‟the most ferociously original film of the year!” upon its original release. The first entry in the popular Evil Dead series launched the career of director Sam Raimi and introduced us to unconventional hero Ash (Bruce Campbell). Five college students travel to a secluded cabin in the woods for spring break. After discovering an audiotape left by a professor that contains voices reading from the Book of the Dead, one of the kids becomes possessed by evil spirits. Now the remaining students must survive the night or else become the Evil Dead!
