Sam Raimi first perfected his fast-paced physical thrills on the Evil Dead trilogy before tackling superheroes, westerns and even baseball. After a 15-year absence from horror, his triumphant return was this pitch-black, Tales From The Crypt-like morality tale -- a gruesome, gleefully over-the-top spook show full of impeccable setpieces.
