As you may or may not know, in 1978 director Sam Raimi made a little movie called Within the Woods that would go on to be the inspiration for the 1981 horror classic The Evil Dead. Thought lost and unavailable for quite some time, you can now watch the flick in its entirety right here!

Within the Woods stars Evil Dead staples Bruce Campbell and Ellen Sandweiss along with Evil Dead producer Scott Spiegel. The film was originally made to sell investors on funding a feature-length version. Yes, the quality is sketchy at best, but believe us when we tell you that having a chance to see this little sliver of cinematic history is worth the half hour of eye strain.

Ghost House Pictures is producing the much anticipated remake of The Evil Dead, the film that effectively launched the careers of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise, Darkman, Drag Me to Hell), Rob Tapert »
