Why, Sue, you old rascal, I thought you were dead, and... ahhhhhh!
18 September 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the only featurette on the DVD of The Evil Dead. It is a series of interviews intercut with clips of the film and stills of covers and art for various movies that are put in the same category as it. This regails the story of how the flick was discovered, the big scandal caused by the idea that these weren't just a healthy release of emotions and frustrations, but in fact could inspire real-life violence, the talent that they could see in Raimi's debut, and the originality of it and how it reinvigorated the genre. There is no deep analysis of the picture itself in this, but there isn't meant to. They do talk about what makes it great(and let's be honest, they're absolutely right... Sam is one of the results of someone growing up watching tons of this stuff... uh, and The Three Stooges), including the camera-work, editing and sound-side. No one who was a part of making the first one appears in this. Stephen King is mentioned/referenced. There is brutal, bloody gore and disturbing content in this. I recommend this to anyone who likes the subject(and this doesn't spoil it, if you haven't seen it yet). 7/10
