EVIL DEAD is a US horror film in which a group of students visit a remote cabin in the woods where they inadvertently awaken evil spirits.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of strong bloody violence and gore, including stabbings, severing of limbs, and a decapitation, as characters are attacked by evil spirits or possessed.

A sequence of sexual violence also occurs in which a woman is tied down and partially stripped by demonic roots and vines around a tree. It is implied that the tendrils sexually penetrate her.
