THE EVIL DEAD / Renaissance Pictures - 1981

It's Halloween Countdown Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Here's another wild 'n' weird movie from the mind of writer/director Sam Raimi, who was also responsible for productions like THE DEAD NEXT DOOR, LUNATICS: A LOVE STORY, DARKMAN and TIMECOP. This one stars Bruce (EVIL DEAD II and ARMY OF DARKNESS) Campbell. The story's about five friends go to a cabin in the woods and find supreme evil lurking there.

Eegah!! sent over a spook house sound clip from this crazy fun flick for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our blood machine, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a taste of... THE EVIL DEAD!

After a few adventures, the five friends finally arrive at the cabin for a weekend of fun!

They find a creepy illustrated book there called the Necronomicon, or, Book of the Dead!

They also find a tape recorder with the taped translation of the book on it, and, when played, it releases the evil waiting there in the woods!

One of the girls goes outside to check out some weird sounds she heard and gets attacked by some very horny vines!

Then, the thing in the cellar pops its ugly head out and they have to chain the door shut!

Ash's girlfriend is taken over by the evil, here, she licks the blood off a dagger!

Later, Ash clobbers her with a shovel while trying to bury her, causing her to explode!

Ash has to gouge the eyeballs out of his best friend or die because the guy's now an Evil Dead bent on mayhem!

Ash is being pummeled from pillar to post, his last chance is to toss the evil book fully into the fireplace. He uses a pendant on a chain to hook the book and eventually is just able to accomplish the task.

The thing in the cellar is out now and tries to get its slimy claws on our unwitting hero!

Finally, the book is burned to a point where the evil within starts losing its power!

The Claymation gang is brought in to show the Evil Dead frightfully decomposing right in front of our disbelieving eyes!

The real demons are forced to claw their way out of the corpses they inhabit and threaten Ash again just before they totally decompose after the book is burned to a crisp!.. WHEW!!

Tune in Wednesday for more Halloween Countdown antics!
