The scene in the film involves Cheryl (Ellen Sandweiss), final boy Ash Williams' sister, who ventures out alone in the woods after she and her friends, who have all gathered for vacation at a cabin in rural Tennessee, start to hear strange and disturbing noises. The Evil Dead is infamous in the horror community in many ways, but they're not all good reasons; Sam Raimi, the film's director, has gotten a lot of backlash over the years for his inclusion of the film's 'tree rape' scene, and has since spoken out about his regrets.. 2. Big deal, it’s a reboot. After audience and fan backlash, along with comments that he was a misogynist throughout the years, Raimi finally openly expressed his regrets about the 'tree rape' scene. Possessed Mia cuts her tongue on a box cutter and kisses another woman.

Why is this concept so powerful and pervasive in movies? I mean, there must be some other way to show "dude, there's something evil going on here", right? It appears in the first two films and reappears in Home Again, episode nine of season two of Ash vs Evil Dead Season Two.

Of course, the most disturbing thing about all of this is the audience's cheerful reaction to sexual assault. I didn't know about that scene in the original. Also, I agree that violence takes place against both men and women in countless movies, but the main difference is that violence towards men in movies rarely include rape or sexualization of the male character, where as the two are nearly always synonymous for women. Jack Wilhelmi is the horror features editor at Screen Rant, and has been with the site since 2019. The trees later mortally wound Scotty, causing him to become a Deadite. The 2013 remake, Evil Dead, from director Fede Alvarez kept very true to the original, however, Alvarez had stated he did not want to include the scene that got Raimi so much backlash and a harsh rating from the MPAA in his film.

You’d think that kids these days would know better than to read what’s inside of a book bound by human skin, especially if those kids are taking shelter in a cabin in the middle of the woods. There's more to this, but the spam filter doesn't want y'all to know, I guess. Would some fans miss “that scene”? Sam Raimi EVIL DEAD'S STILL THE BEST, ITS LOOKS THE NEW MOVIE WAS MAKED FOR KIDS OR SOMETHING CAUSE ENTIRE MOVIE DONT HAVE ANY SEX SCENE, ITS A FAKE TOTALLY A FAKE. Really? Jorge replied on Mon, 04/08/2013 - 12:26pm. Get real. The slimy vine clears goes straight up her va**na in the scene. Also this sex/violence duo in movies seems to prefer attractive women only. He has been published on the independent horror blog Morbidly Beautiful, and has covered major genre film festivals such as Cinepocalypse in Chicago. Raimi said in an interview: "I think it was unnecessary gratuitous and a little too brutal... my goal is not to offend people. I wonder if the only rape scene to take place in the original and new version was acted out on a man (with no female rape in the movie) would it still seem as normal to people, and would they still be as partial to the scene. Take your favorite fandoms with you and never miss a beat. Evil Dead pushes boundaries, just like the Exorcist did in the 70s, and pushing the boundaries is a good thing in horror movies.
