Given almost the highest of Roger Mooreâ€™s Ratings Evil Dead does receive Two Skipped Beats out of the Heart Stopping Rating System. Before Sam Raimi did spider-man there was his first film, The Evil Dead and when it originally came out it truly was a grueling experience in horror, so stated from Stephen King. Staring Bruce Campbell as Ash in his most famous role, this film was on a low budget but filming was done with the highest of excellence. A true original story with more than one twist and turn, With performances from some still unknown actors and actresses this movie is at the very top of my list as greatest movies ever made. Inspiring two sequels, multiple T-Shirts and merchandise including everything from lunchboxes to action figures, this movie has it all for every horror fan.
