Before there was a cabin-in-the-woods movie trope, an inventive young filmmaker and his friends made their first feature-length movie on a shoestring budget. The result remains one of the most influential and enduring horror films of all time.
In this episode, Max and Dorian crack open the book on:
- the history and making of Evil Dead
- how Evil Dead is, in some ways, the most accurate depiction of Lovecraftian horror on film
- the tension between violence and comedy in entertainment
- a brief breakdown of the other movies, shows, and games in the franchise
Content warning: we briefly discuss (but not in detail) and critique a sexual assault scene in the film.
