12 Important Moments from Sam Raimi’s ‘Evil Dead’

35:35: This marks the big moment when we see exactly what it looks like when a Kandarian demon possesses a human being. Whatever that tree left behind inside of Cheryl manifests and terrifies simultaneously. The second she begins to utter menacing sounding nonsense, you’re glued to the screen, and it only becomes more alarming as she informs the group, in English, that they’re all going to die. A terrifying and iconic moment (that’s even been sampled) that still makes for frightening entertainment as opposed to slapstick filler, which is an underlying element of the film utilized to draw forth uncomfortable chuckles during shots in which no chuckles should be heard. Terrific balance by the then-green Raimi, no doubt.
