Featured Video: Book Of The Dead Trailer

In the spring of 1980, with principal photography; re-shoots & effects sequences completed, the Renaissance team traveled from Michigan to New York, to work with editor Edna Ruth Paul. Sorting through over 100,000 feet of footage, a rough 97 minute cut was put together. Once Rob, Sam & Bruce returned back to Michigan they cut a four minute trailer narrated by John Cameron in order to raise more funding, enabling further editing work, and the final completion of the then re-titled 'The Evil Dead'. Because it was edited from the 97 rather than the 85 minute version, there are snippets of footage you’ll not see in the final movie.

The above info is from The Evil Dead - The Treasures Collection DVD (Thanks Rob!)
