Trivia

The film was publicly released once, shortly after it was made, and featured before late night performances of the The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) in a Detroit theater. Due to not having rights to the music, Raimi and Campbell donated the film's entire gross of less than $20 to the American Cancer Society. See more »

Sweet little short.
25 November 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Within the Woods" is largely known as the prequel to "The Evil Dead".This 30-minutes film was created to sell investors on the idea of "The Evil Dead".The film is extremely low-budget and the story is minimal.Still there is plenty of gore to satisfy fans of American horror.Bruce Cambell plays Bruce,who gets zombified.Ellen Sandweiss plays his girlfriend,Ellen.However she doesn't get raped by a tree in this film,though.The cinematography is grainy and the moving steady/shaky camera-a Raimi trademark-probably made it's debut here."Within the Woods" is rather tough to find,but if you get a chance watch it.Highly recommended.
