The Evil Dead (1981)

If this were made today it’d be called a mash-up – of practically every horror movie made to date. As it was, it was so out there, so extreme – and so hilarious! – that a different kind of gore was now de rigeur. Made by a bunch of particularly gifted college students led by auteur in waiting Sam Raimi, this is a classic from the time which gifted us the phrase, Video Nasty. This was for a spell the nastiest of ’em all. Long live Bruce!
