With the release of Evil Dead just a few short months away, we thought it would be fun to share the one that started it all! Within the Woods is a 30-minute short film directed by Sam Raimi and starring Bruce Campbell, the team that brought us the original The Evil Dead and its two sequels Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn and Army Of Darkness. Original franchise star Ellen Sandweiss is also featured in this reel created to inspire investors and raise money for the perennial 1981 horror classic. Watch an inspired bit of film history, which proves to be quite an eyeful.
