THIS WEEKEND at NW Film Forum
Bruce Campbell in The original scare-the-crap-outta-America THE EVIL
DEAD - May 27-28, Fri-Sat at 11pm
The Evil Dead (Sam Raimi, USA, 1981, 35mm, 85 min)
The ultimate experience in grueling horror! A budget-less horror movie
made by Sam Raimi and his buddies (including, of course, Bruce
Campbell), EVILDEAD scared the crap out of America and spawned a brand
new era of horror films. When Bruce Campbell and company head out to
the woods, an ancient evil lies in wait for them, ready to possess
their bodies and deliver the most ghastly, gore-filled deaths
imaginable. A masterpiece of d.i.y. special effects, ultra-creative
bloodletting and fantastically athletic camerawork, this stylish cult
classic is NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. Unrated upon its release for
blood, violence, gore and astonishing bad taste.

THE GRAND ILLUSION in Seattle Presents:
FRIDAY & SATURDAY MAY 27 & 28 @11 pm
