Overview

In the dank cellar of the dilapadated cabin tucked away in the great forest, there is a book bound in human skin and filled with incantations writ in blood. To read the words therein is to release a hideously unspeakable force...

Rigorously made on an almost absent budget in the backwoods of Tennessee, the film was a phenomenal success—the true definition of "cult film"—launching the careers of its director, Sam Raimi; producer, Bob Tapert; and star, Bruce Campbell. It also spawned two deliriously different and wildly inventive sequels, The Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn, and Army of Darkness, which have won over legions of fright fans around the globe.

At last, acclaimed film critic Bill Warren takes us on a no-holds-barred behind-the-scenes tour of the making of the three films, including exclusive interviews with key cast and crew; rare and previously unpublished photographs, story-boards, and concept sketches; harrowing tales of hardship, discomfort, and practical jokes; and much more. Enough to keep any puss-oozing deadite drooling through the night.
