The genre is called "splatstick" - a combination of gory horror and comedy. And the film that started it all is 1981's Evil Dead! Jeff, Buddy, and a reluctant Chad (who doesn't do gore) review the cult classic that's still being talked about, and produced on pay-cable, today! Written and directed by Sam Raimi, and starring Bruce Campbell, this film started it all, and was the first major work for both Raimi and Campbell! Co-starring Ellen Sandweiss, Richard DeManincor, Betsy Baker, and Theresa Tilly, and made on a shoestring budget, this film nevertheless gained a following worldwide and made Bruce Campbell a household name!
