EVIL DEAD is a remake of the 1981 horror film, in which five friends travel to a remote cabin in the woodsto help a friend withdraw from her drug addiction, when they stumble upon a book of incantations and inadvertently unleash demonic forces.

Violence

There is strong bloody violence and gory horror throughout, including sight of self-mutilation by demon-possessed characters. There is a significant focus on the infliction of pain, injury and bloodshed, including the cutting off of limbs and other acts of dismemberment.

In one scene a woman is assaulted by some vegetation that has been inhabited by the demonic forces. The woman is restrained by vines and a branch crawls up between her legs and under her skirt. No nudity is shown and there is no strong sexual detail, but it is implied that the demons have entered her body.

Language

There is strong language ('f**k') and use of very strong language ('c**t').
