Pure Fun
20 April 2002 | by (Melbourne , Australia) – See all my reviews

Haha, one of my favourite shorts! a 30 minute short with just 4 actors turns out to be a classic Art-house presentation of what would become the evil dead series.

Highly recommended if you can find a copy, i saw this long ago.

9/10
