Discovering 'Evil Dead' (2002)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Stephen Woolley and Nik Powell, co-owners of The Palace, are interviewed about how they became aware of THE EVIL DEAD and they discuss the steps they took to buy the film and get it released. Also on hand is author Bill Warren who throws in a few bits of trivia on the film's release.

If you're a fan of THE EVIL DEAD then you'll know that the movie has been released all over the world in a variety of special editions. Countless extras have been produced for the film and this here is a good one and certainly worth watching. Both Woolley and Powell do a very good job at telling their story and you certainly get a great idea of what the U.K. release was like and how well the film did on video. They also talk about the controversy that soon hit the film and of course the Video Nasties would follow.
