The Evil Dead

Friday, October 25 - Saturday, October 26, 2019

New 4K Restoration!

“Raimi’s first feature, a sensationally bad-taste effort which narrates the rapid decline into demonic mental and physical possession of a clean-cut, all-American holiday party holed up in a mountain Tennessee retreat. The woods come alive, devils possess the living, and Tom Sullivan’s amazing make-up effects climax with a final fiery exorcism which makes George Romero look like Playschool… strong on atmospheric horror and visual churns, this movie blends comic fantasy (EC Tales) with recent genre gems like Carrie and Texas Chain Saw Massacre to impressive effect.” – Time Out (London)
