31 Days of Halloween - Day 26 "The Evil Dead"

Join us all October long as we spotlight different horror movies every day with a brand new video! 

I was actually a little torn about whether to choose the 1981 original or the 2013 remake, since I think that the latter version gets an unfairly bad rep. Ultimately though, I just couldn't deny The Chin.

As far as continuity goes, The Evil Dead series is one of the more confusing ones around. Thankfully, we don't have to get into that mess, since this is just about Raimi's original where low budget doesn't begin to describe the aesthetic. The effects are cheap, the acting is hammy, and the mix can be a little rough, but all of the elements build upon each other for an ultimately satisfying and terrifying experience. Seriously, watch the last thirty minutes with your surround sound on full blast and you'll feel it in your bones.

And can we really ask for much more from a horror film?

I'd like my writing to further represent me as a person by providing different insights into the things currently on my mind. Whether it's writing about a movie, TV show, album, book, wrestling event, experience, or life lesson. I don't plan on making this a personal blog where I treat it like a diary. This is just supposed to represent… Me.
