Schönes Evil Dead-Tributevideo von Joblo anlässlich Halloween und dem 30jährigen Geburtstag von Sam Raimis Tanz der Teufel. Bonustracks nach dem Klick: Within the Woods, Sam Raimis „Prototyp“-Kurzfilm für Evil Dead.

Von Wikipedia:

The idea to do a “prototype” was commissioned, to prove not only to themselves, but also to potential investors that they were capable of doing a full length horror film. The same year, at Michigan State, Raimi had been studying H. P. Lovecraft and was most impressed with Necronomicon, or simply The Book of the Dead. From these rough concepts, he concocted a short story where a group of four friends unwittingly dig up an Indian burial ground and unleash horrific spirits and demons. In the spring of 1979 filming of Within the Woods started over a three day weekend on a budget of $1,600.

Within the Woods, as well as serving as a prototype, had impressed the filmmakers. For a marketing strategy a screening was arranged at their former high school, with a positive response.

    Großartig gemachte Montage, echt coole Idee für eine Filmreihe, die es echt verdient hat. Sollte ich mir mal wieder (in einem Rutsch) alle anschauen.

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.
