Gory, campy, atmospheric, and funny, the film is nonstop excitement because it runs only a few minutes over an hour.

were marketed as Evil Dead sequels, and Japan’s Evil Dead Trap, whose similarities to Raimi’s work begin and end with the title. After a basic opening scene that sets the scene by depicting the murder of a young woman in a basement, the film takes a little while to get going again as we meet the titular character and get the excuse to go back to the house, where all hell breaks loose pretty quickly.

There’s the La Casa series in Italy, wherein unrelated movies (including House II and House III, but not the original House! So cue lots of creative, but cheaply knocked up blood and gore make-up effects and some mildly amusing slapstick moments. Written and directed by Stephen Cognetti, this faux-documentary style horror movie brings tons of thrills and chills. The film also manages to create an eerie atmosphere from the start too to make things a bit more nightmarish. I did know going in that it was inspired by The Evil Dead, but I didn’t know it was a low budget DIY SOV type deal because 80’s/90’s J-horror has just never been a part of the horror world into which I’ve taken a dive.

That changes when they open up the doors to supernatural torment when a distracted Jane accidentally runs a woman over while driving home from a friend’s wedding. There is however a lot of residual passionate amateur charm to the fact that Evil Dead inspired someone to go out and make a no-budget, one-man crew knockoff with even fewer resources than him.

What initially appealed to me about The Evil Dead is how Raimi and company’s scrappy, do-it-yourself ethic translates on screen. It’s about a conjured house and a body builder, there’s no space for more in this hour and two minutes comedy splatter. Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead films have obviously had just a slight cultural impact on the world of horror creating a tectonic plate level of shifting in the realm of horror films spawning an abundance of copycats, rip offs, cash grabs, and homages. And it works in large part because of the obvious enthusiasm and love of the genre, especially the Evil Dead franchise, that went into it.
