As the evil book and audio tapes are discovered and are read out loud, the group of friends unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons - as you do.

Starring Bruce Campbell, Ellen Sandweiss, Richard DeManicor, Betsy Baker and Theresa Tilly, the original film has a solid 86 percent critic score on Rotten Tomatoes and is considered a classic in the genre.

The 2013 remake of Evil Dead is now available on Netflix and you can check out the trailer below:

Filled with a number of unsettling themes, the 1981 movie generated a lot of controversy due to a lack of consideration of censorship.

One scene, which sums up the whole film, sees the hands of a human being chewed clean off, in what was one sample of what was quite simply a gore-fest.

Whilst the film was postponed in the UK due to censorship laws, alongside a ‘video nasty’ label, the director decided to cut down the movie by 49 seconds to achieve an X certificate, making it watchable.

Although, it still remains banned in several other countries.

Now that the 2013 remake has dropped on Netflix, some viewers have recently called it a 'masterpiece'.

The 1981 film got banned in multiple countries.

Directed by Fede Álvarez, the remake includes the likes of Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, and Elizabeth Blackmore.

"This movie haunted me in my younger years and to this day gives me chills," one person commented.

"I can think of very few movies that have stuck with me since the first watch and given me the joy it still does to watch.

"The gore and horrific imaging throughout the movie have really brought it a sense of thrill and true horror. 10/10 great movie."

While someone else said: "I have no real complaints; it's a masterpiece just like the original film and it's sequels!"

Another added: "This movie was definitely my favorite Evil Dead movie.

"I thought this movie's jump scares were very well done and the gore was fantastic.

The remake came out in 2013.

"This movie was one heck of a ride! Evil Dead has everything you want in a horror movie, including good acting, a scary setting, an excellent back story, I thought this movie was a little to drawn out and long, but I still highly recommend watching it."

Not everyone was so keen though, as a third person wrote: "As far as reboots go this is quite soft. It has lots of nods to the original 3 films like the cabin is a pretty good recreation.

"Staying pretty loyal to the original but IMO they should've left the Evil Dead films as a trilogy and not try to reboot them."

Evil Dead is available to watch on Netflix now.
