You may not know this, but before Sam Raimi directed Evil Dead, he shot a short, ugly but ambitious little feature about a group of youngsters who head for a remote cabin to get away from the crap of everyday life. The problem is, they find themselves in a much worse position.
Yes, the answer to the obvious question is that this is most certainly a prequel to Evil Dead. While the quality of the video is absolutely horrendous, this is the only version to ever surface online. There may, in fact, be no other print of the flick in existence.
Even knowing that the visual quality is a mess, and the sound isn’t much stronger, you’ve got to watch this half hour short film. It’s an interesting piece for the franchise, and it really gives the impression that this was the test run before emptying bank accounts and going all the way with Evil Dead.
But enough of this rambling, watch the movie below!
