    "This gory movie takes the gore and cranks it way up and then some. To say that its plot is twisted and disturbing would be an understatement. Go watch and you'll understand what I mean."

    "There isn't much of a plot but if you're just looking for a gory movie and some scares, then, this is not bad. Give it a shot."


The first horror movie began with the works of George Mellies? He made the film back in 1898 but was only rediscovered in 1977. This was also the first film to include elements of the supernatural. This was to be the recurring theme in a lot of films during the early 1900s. Amazing works such as Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll, and Mr. Hyde, and The Werewolf, both of which are now lost. The 1930s saw the release of films that defined the horror genre that tried to scare its viewers. They were Dracula and the most controversial movie at the time, Freaks. The 40s saw movies inspired by elements such as mutants and radioactive creatures. Inspired by the war-torn nature of those times. The 70s turned to the occult with movies like The Exorcist and The Omen.

The 80s was an era defined by slasher movies popularized by none other than the Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Followed by greats like Halloween, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm Street. The horror film industry had a lot of great films but has hit a sort of lull, relying on remakes and reboots. It was having a better time inspiring horror games than with movies. This has given way to a sub-genre of torture horror. These are violent and gory movies that rely on shock value with its visual presentation. It's not all lost though as releases like Cabin in the Woods, and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. These films feature creativity and originality that the genre has not seen in a while. The horror industry is turning things around and the future seems bright.

    "This movie is one of the best examples of horror done right. From the writing to the cinematography, the special effects, and even the costume, it's all done incredibly well. Considering it was made during the 1970s just makes it even more of a feat."

    "Any movie that has Bruce Campbell in it is sure to be a good one and this is no different. This was Sam Raimi's feature debut and the movie did well with the relatively low budget that it had."
