I love my dad for getting me into the old classics like The Omega Man, or Monty Python, and many others. It's made me develop a love for the old stuff, and while he is also a fan of The Evil Dead Trilogy, I was too young to have him show them to me.
Until now. After seeing the redband trailer for the new Evil Dead, I was intrigued, and so I downloaded the original trilogy, and I couldn't stop watching until I finished Army of Darkness. Now that I've bought the movies, I'm glad I did. The Evil Dead DVD came in perfect condition, and it played without the slightest problem. I thoroughly enjoyed The Evil Dead once again, and I'm absolutely ecstatic to have added it to my growing DVD collection.
The movie itself is about five college friends venturing out into the mountains to camp out in an old cabin. Unfortunately, after finding the Book of the Dead and a record of the cabin's previous owner, which reads the forbidden passages within the book out loud, an evil force is once again awakened. This evil force possesses them one by one, and before long, there's the possibility that no one will survive to see the next dawn.
All in all, this was a highly enjoyable classic that came in perfect condition.
**** out of *****
