Ingenious Animator Boils Down 'The Evil Dead' to One Minute

Danny Gallagher writes:
No man can be a real movie buff without having watched Sam Raimi's 1981 cult horror film "The Evil Dead" -- or at least "The Evil Dead 2," the 1987 big-budget sequel.

In both, the timeless story of Ash Williams' never-ending fight to the death against an army of the undead has everything that makes movies worth watching: a rich yet ridiculous story, a dashing leading man (Bruce Campbell), inventive special effects and of course, zombies, zombies, zombies.

But if you're pressed for time, we urge you to watch the one-minute version of "The Evil Dead" put together by animator and filmmaker Lee Hardcastle.

Hardcastle created the Cliffs Notes version for the the Jameson Empire Done in 60 Seconds short film contest. Since then, Hardcastle's clay animation video has not only become a viral hit, but it's also one of the contest's 20 finalists. Winners will be announced on March 26.
