"See it if you want to see a woman getting raped by a tree"
A classicBasically this is a low budget horror. BUT it has a difference, it is superbly directed, absurdly written and purposly hammily acted. But unlike a lot of other low budget horror fare from the early eighties this one can actually be bloody creepy at times.
Although not as well made as Evil Dead two, and with much more annoying characters, it still stands as a VERY violent, darkly funny film. (No 2 played a lot more for laughs than this one.
Also this showed that Sam Raimi can direct, on a miniscule budget he produced some spectacular camera work, and for a cheap horror that is very odd, as usually the direction isn't always great.See it if you can stomach it and if you want to see a woman getting raped by a tree.
