The Evil Dead, the film that kicked off a fan-favorite horror franchise, was written and directed by Sam Raimi and features Bruce Campbell in the iconic role of Ash Williams. It’s the story of five friends who travel to a cabin in the woods and discover a book and audio tape, unknowingly releasing demons by reading from the book of the dead, the Necronomicon. The movie first premiered in 1981.
