Sam Raimi's Evil Dead is easily one of the most original franchises in the horror genre. It showcases incredible practical effects, that still mostly hold up, within memorable scenes and, of course, with the brilliant slapstick antics of Bruce Campbell as Ash, who would go on to become a true horror icon.
From its humble, creative beginnings to its big budget gore-fest remake, Evil Dead has chainsawed its place amongst the top of horror, and has inspired many other films in the process. But Evil Dead has a style all its own that can't really be replicated. There just isn't anything else quite like it.
