Did You Know?

Was slated to be released in April of 2002 as a special feature on Anchor Bay's "Book of the Dead" DVD release of The Evil Dead (1981), but it was withheld at the last minute due to problems with royalties for the music used in the short. This problem has prevented it from being given a release in any format.See more »

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.
