There are a lot of people out there who love the “Evil Dead” movies, so much so that they’re willing to stand in line for several hours at numerous horror conventions just to get a peek at their hero, Bruce Campbell. I happen to be one of those folks who grew up watching the “Evil Dead” movies as a kid, thanks in part to the folks who programmed the USA Network back in the early 90’s. God bless your degenerate souls. Without their assistance, I may not have stumbled across these films until several years later. There’s no telling how my life would have turned out had I not discovered “Evil Dead 2” on VHS while in middle school.
Director Daniel Kanemoto, inspired by the work of artist Olly Moss, decided to pay tribute to the franchise by putting together the animated clip you see below. In short, it’s a crash course through the zany world of Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead”, complete with iconic moments and nifty one-liners. If you haven’t seen the films, then the numerous references will probably be lost on you. Still, anyone with a passing interest in cool animation should find something to love about the clip. As fan of the series, I happen to think it’s insanely badass.
For more information about Ex Mortis Films, be sure to stop by the company’s official website. A lot of their professional work is top notch, but nothing really compares to the clip below.
Thanks to Bruce Campbell (@GroovyBruce) for the heads up.
