Did You Know?

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 »

4 out of 4 people found the following review useful.
Pure Fun, 20 April 2002
Author: R X from Melbourne, Australia

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.
