Director Sam Raimi may be a mainstream director nowadays, with such audience-loving fare as the Spider-Man franchise to his name, but he made his mark first in the decidedly niche and darker film corner of horror and exploitation with The Evil Dead (1981). Made for only $50,000 by Raimi and his friends, the movie about a primordial evil unexpectedly unleashed from an ancient text by a group of five friends in a mountain cabin can, without hyperbole, be called one of the most influential films of the latter half of the twentieth century. That it also adds some wickedly perverse glimpses of Betsy Baker's and Ellen Sandweiss's flesh is only icing on the cake. So get this movie--now! You'll have your cake and eat it too!
