I was way too young to have seen the original “Evil Dead” movies by Sam Raimi when they first surfaced, but I eventually stumbled across the first “Evil Dead” (it was called “The Evil Dead”, as I recall) and loved it. Imagine my joy when I discovered it was the first of a trilogy. Part 2 took some getting used to (bigger budget, way jokier), but it was still brilliant stuff. By the time “Army of Darkness” rolled around, I was completely in on the gag and loving it.
Man, those were the days. Sam Raimi just doesn’t make movies like that anymore. Hell, nowadays, ol Sam’s selling his “Evil Dead” brand to be remade. I guess he needs the movie. Or something. I don’t have to tell you how disappointed I am in that. Sam, if you wanted to make money off the brand, couldn’t you have remade the film yourself? Damn, man.
Anyways, for fans of the original “Evil Dead” films, check out this minute-long animated tribute, drawn in the style of renown Mondo artist Ollie Moss. The entire thing was directed, drawn, and animated by Daniel M. Kanemoto. He did one hell of a job.
