The Coen Brothers Raise The Evil Dead

30 years after the release of Raising Arizona, a look at the use of "shaky cam."

Friends can be influential on a personal level, but what about in an artistic sense? Sam Raimi and the Coen Brothers are known for very different films, but once upon a time they were collaborators. While Joel and Ethan Coen are multiple Oscar-winners and critically lauded auteurs, they struggled to break into filmmaking just like the horror-obsessed Raimi. Joel and Sam worked together on Raimi’s no-budget masterwork The Evil Dead, and it was there that Joel learned a cheap but effective camera trick to raise the pulse of the audience: the shaky cam.

The Genius of Sam Raimi

His movies make laughs and scares the same thing.

This video explains the giddy rush you feel when director Sam Raimi whips up his unique blend of horror and comedy. According to video essayist Patrick Willems, his genius lies in throwing us off balance as we’re yanked between two genres that affect us on a primal level.

There’s a straight line—or is that a flatline?—from Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein to Evil Dead’s Ash, and several distinct ways to push audiences to the edge of hysteria. As Willems points out, there's nothing inherently funny in Raimi’s movies, and that's where he gets us.

Bruce Campbell was 'blowing red snot for a week' on Evil Dead 2

In Sam Raimi’s 1987 horror classic Evil Dead 2, Bruce Campbell’s idiot-hero Ash attempts to shoot his possessed (and severed) right hand after it scurries behind the walls of a cabin in the woods. Instead of slaying the extremity, Ash causes a torrent of blood to rush out of the wall and drench him in gore. We asked Campbell to explain exactly how they achieved the effect.

Join Us: Revisiting The Evil Dead (1981)

Originally shown in the US in 1981, it sat finished for a few years, slowly gaining traction before it actually saw a wide release in 1983, and yet it still seemed to come out of nowhere to take the world by storm. People weren’t prepared for The Evil Dead. But that’s exactly what Raimi designed it to be: something you weren’t prepared for, something you didn’t even know how to react to.

Lee Majors to return for Season 3 of 'Ash vs. Evil Dead'

Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Bruce Campbell says Lee Majors is returning for Season 3 of Ash vs. Evil Dead -- even though his character was run down by a demonic car in Season 2.

"We brought him back. So, we have some good scenes with him as a ghost," Campbell told UPI recently at New York Comic Con. "He's funny. Lee is funny. Lee has a good sense of humor. This season, now, Lee is way more relaxed because he is like: 'I've got this. I know what this is now.' You come on to a new show, you don't know what the hell it is. You don't know any of these people. He is comfortable with me now and, so, he's great."

Season 3 is scheduled to begin Feb. 25 on Starz. The horror-comedy follows Campbell's Evil Dead movies, which were released in the 1980s and '90s. It co-stars Lucy Lawless, Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo.

Majors is known for his roles on TV's The Big Valley, The Six Million Dollar Man and The Fall Guy. He joined Ash vs. Evil Dead as Ash's father Brock in Season 2.
