Now, I enjoyed the series so much that not only am I incredibly happy I now own physical copies of them, but I don't want to really spoil any of the plot (there really isn't much, if any). So I will say this:
Evil Dead is a well done gore-filled horror movie, a classic "kids rent out a cabin in the woods and shit goes down" scenario. Evil is unleashed, bodies are dismembered, and things are actually kind of scary (for a movie made in '81). It sets up Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness and introduces our protagonist, Ash.
|This is probably one of the best ways to spend 5 hours.|

So if there's a point to this post, it'll be, go out and see these god damned movies. Buy 'em if you can. They're worth the money. They'll have you and your friends laughing and reeling in disgust all night long. Evil Dead stands as a pretty solid horror movie, Evil Dead 2 straddles the line of horror and dark comedy, and Army of Darkness is one of those movies you watch because of how unpredictable and over-the-top-ridiculous is it.
That's all for now, folks! Hail to the king, baby.
