Evil Dead Trap follows the story of a girl named Karen, who is trapped in her own basement after she releases an evil spirit. After watching the film, I feel like it’s best to avoid any similar situations in your own life.
Evil Dead Trap is a 1988 horror film directed by Sam Raimi. It is considered to be one of the first films in the Deadites sub-genre. This Unearthed Classics DVD was released on September 15, 2018 and has received positive reviews from critics.
Evil Dead Trap is an incredibly graphic gore picture with a harsh, frightening tone, until its woebegone finale totally obliterates all its credibility that it has gained up to that point, with an almost relentless pace and intensity that may possibly shred nerves.
Before airing what seems to be a snuff video on her program, a tabloid-style shock journalist and a small crew examine the location where the tape was shot… They will be confronted with a succession of horrific death traps as well as a clever murderer.
Nami (Miyuki Ono), a TV shock journalist, gets a strange cassette in the mail and discovers what seems to be a gruesome snuff film on it. There are enough indications on the video to identify the precise site where the film was shot, so she brings a small team with her to investigate before the station airs the tape, with permission from her producer. After a lengthy journey, the team arrives to an abandoned military installation, where they are ruthlessly picked off one by one by a hooded and masked murderer who has put up a series of horrific death traps for them. Nami is the only survivor by dark, and she’s kept company by a weird, sad young guy who claims that his younger brother needs assistance, and since there’s a murderer on the loose, he shields Nami until he abandons her, leading to her revelation of what’s really going on. With an incredible twist, the climax goes totally berserk and off the rails.
Evil Dead Trap is a cult horror masterpiece that marches to the beat of its own drum. Evil Dead Trap is an incredibly graphic gore picture with a harsh, frightening tone, until its woebegone finale totally obliterates all its credibility that it has gained up to that point, with an almost relentless pace and intensity that may possibly shred nerves. The picture is dark, frightening, and original (more or less), and it has some resemblance to Italian horror flicks like Argento and Fulci, but it’s completely unique, and its pre-Saw death traps are well performed and visualized on screen. The brutality in the film is uncompromising, so be forewarned. With this, director Toshiharu Ikeda (who subsequently committed suicide) should have been catapulted to horror master status, yet his career floundered after that. This film will provide plenty of surprising and startling shocks for fans of hardcore horror.
Evil Dead Trap was just published on Blu-ray and DVD by Unearthed Classics, and it has three different commentaries, as well as behind-the-scenes stills, artwork, trailers, and an on-camera appreciation of the picture. I thought the DVD was a bit gloomy, but I believe that’s how the movie was filmed. I’m not sure whether the Blu-ray would have been crisper or sharper if I had reviewed it.
