The Evil Dead was first introduced by Sam Raimi in 1981, and it became an instant cult classic.Raimi in 1981, and it became an instant cult classic.
The Evil Dead reads as follows;
Five college students take time off to spend a peaceful vacation in a remote cabin. A book and audio tape is discovered, and its evil is found to be powerful once the incantations are read out loud. The friends find themselves helpless to stop the evil as it takes them one by one, with only one survivor left with the evil dead and desperately tries to fight to live until morning.
In 2013, the classic was adapted by Fede Alvarez. None of the original cast members were in the remake, but it’s arguably one of the best remakes in cinema history. It sticks to the original story with enhancements from modern day technology.
Although the Necronomicon has been long introduced in the Horror circuit (the first count being H.P. Lovecraft’s short story The Hound, 1924), it has been widely regarded as an iconic piece in the circuit.
Since then, the Book of Dead has been circulated countless times, not only in literature, but also in cinema, eventually making it’s way to The Evil Dead. This is one of the best films to make use of the iconic book in cinema history.
As many Horror enthusiasts know, the Necronomicon is used to summon the dead. Hence why it is known as The Book of the Dead. Many films have tried to use the Necronomicon, but not all succeed when you consider the mediocrity and cliches of such films.
