Directed by Sam Raimi. With Bruce Campbell, Ellen Sandweiss, Richard DeManincor, Betsy Baker. Five friends travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons.
Jasmin Johns's insight:

The Evil Dead was the first horror movie that I really liked, it scared me a lot when I first watched it and that inspired the movie maker in me. When I was little I staid up late watching horror movies and got caught be my dad, and he showed me the Evil Dead and said it was a real horror movie. The movie uses cheap effects and sometimes corny catch phrases set back in the late 70s early 80s, it made up for it with shock and awe.

Film School | New York Film Academy

Jasmin Johns's insight:

Most of the famous directors finished from this school. Future film makers would like to go there. If you are interested in film making then this is information which would be very interesting for sure. Directing and producing projects at the Academy must be very challenging and exciting. If you have the big money then I guess this would be on your top ten list of schools for film directing.

Jasmin Johns's insight:
In order to become a successful movie director there are many things that you need to learn, and the best way to learn is to have a mentor. I think if you pick one of these guys which you feel matches you style then you should study them and try to learn from them as much as possible. Sometimes we can catch a lecture read their books or if we are lucky take a class or a workshop from them.
