Within the Woods: Short Film Based on Sam Raimi's Original Work Was Planned

"Within the Woods" is originally a Short Film from 1978 written and directed by Sam Raimi. Shot on Super 8-mm, Sam used the film in an effort to raise money to produce his first feature length film, The Evil Dead.

BSP is a Pittsburgh, PA based production company working on a short film based on Sam Raimi's original work. The film follows the story of four young friends staying at a run-down rental home in the woods. As luck would have it, the home is near an ancient Indian Burial Ground, so of course, an unspeakable evil is accidentally awakened. Before they know it, all four must fight for their lives.

The short film will be done using a digital format, and the professional gruesome special effects will be provided by students attending Tom Savini's Special Make-Up Effects Program near Pittsburgh. Now some may ask, why choose to do a Short Film based on Raimi's original? Well it is established, it will help to stand out from countless short horror films, but most of all, its a passion project of ours, an homage to all of Raimi's fantastic work in Horror and it is going to be a whole lot of fun!

Behind Schedule Productions fell short of their goal to fund this project. Perhaps another go-around?

In the war torn jungles of Vietnam, circa 1969, Marine Sergeant Jack Stryker takes two bullets in the leg just outside a Vietcong occupied village--he's rescued by a friend, and together the men blaze a bullet-strewn path out of the hellish jungle, entirely wiping out the enemy. But upon his return home, Stryker is plunged into a more personal war when his girlfriend is abducted by a frightening Manson-like cult of drug-addled cretins led by a vicious leader (EVIL DEAD director Sam Raimi). Soon enough, Stryker gathers together three of his old marine buddies, and the quartet form a deadly revenge-seeking death squad.

2 Featured Videos: The Evil Dead Lost Interview and JLU Superman as Army of Darkness' Ash

This interview was taped on May 4th, 1983 with Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert for a public access show in Roseville, Michigan called "The Fast Track". Due to copyright, all film clips from the movie "Evil Dead" have been edited out of this interview. This includes the opening credits to this show.

Like millions of other nerds, I think Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead' movies are like the best kind of comfort food. They're filled with violence, time travel, zombies, HP Lovecraft, chainsaws, Three Stooges comedy, demons and Bruce Campbell, the most iconic chin to never wear the big red S.

So it was with a little surprise and a lot of gleeful recognition that I saw this episode of the DCAU's 'Justice League.' In it, Superman is thrown through time, with only his wits, a vague goal to "get back home" and a car trunk's worth of 20th Century supplies. If an editor wanted to re-cut this, he could just dub in the audio from 'Army of Darkness.' Yes, it's a superhero retelling of Evil Dead 3, with Vandal Savage in place of Evil Ash and mutant cockroaches in place of the Deadites.

Composer Joseph LoDuca on the music of LEVERAGE and SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND

Mark Morton writes:
The story of Joseph LoDuca’s rise in the world of movie and television soundtracks is a classic. Jumping in with both feet in 1982, he became involved with the trio of Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert, and actor Bruce Campbell for the iconic splat-stick horror film Evil Dead. He developed such a strong bond with them that whenever any of them would request his services, he would jump at the chance. After paying his dues in the horror film circuit, the team graduated into epic television franchises, first with Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and then to greater success with Xena: Warrior Princess.

eBay: Rare SAM RAIMI Book of Dead (Evil Dead) Collectibles!!!

Here's something you don't see every day! Namely two vintage Evil Dead press photos circa back when Raimi was still in Detroit (on 9 Mile in Ferndale actually, just North of the famed 8 Mile) at Renaissance Pictures.

• Evil Dead: Can They Be Stopped? press teaser

• Super rare photo of Sam Raimi and Coen Bros Ethan in front of the Redford Theater in Detroit for the premiere of Book Of The Dead (AKA The Evil Dead). On the back of this photo is the following caption (glued on, hey, they were on a tight budget in the early '80s).

"Sam Raimi and a pre Blood Simple Ethan Coen a moment before the world premier of "Evil Dead" then titled "Book of the Dead."

Interesting note: Ethan flew out from New York with only hours to spare clutching the 4th and final reel of the pucture fresh from the Technicolor baths."

This weekend, audiences can experience Raimi's original cult horror classic, The Evil Dead, just as it was seen back in 1981 — on the big screen. For the first feature in its new Late Night Grind House series, St. Louis' horror podcast Destroy The Brain! has teamed with Grindhouse Releasing (cofounded by Sylvester Stallone's son Sage) to present a new 35mm print of The Evil Dead for midnight screenings at the Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Avenue) this Friday and Saturday (May 14 and 15).

Some Evil Dead Trivia:

On the tape, in which the demon resurrection passages are read aloud, some of the words spoken (which sound like genuine Latin) and that sound like "Sam and Rob, Das ist Hikers Dan dee Roadsa" actually mean "Sam and Rob are the Hikers on the road", as it was actually Sam Raimi and Robert G. Tapert who play the fishermen that wave to the car as it passes them near the start of the film.


Sam and Rob had just cut each others hair for this scene.

The Fantasy Worlds of Sam Raimi [GGTV]

rgsunico writes:
With the news of the demise of the Sam Raimi-produced Legend of the Seeker circulating the blogosphere, this got me thinking about the richly diverse fantasy worlds that Sam Raimi has brought to the small screen. Sure, we mainly remember him as the director for the Spider-Man movies or maybe even The Evil Dead movies further back but he's also a rather prolific TV producer with a passion for the geekier things in life.

In this week's Geeky Guide to TV, let's review the surprisingly geeky world of Sam Raimi, who has helped bring to life worlds of fantasy in the same way that Jerry Bruckheimer keeps giving us new iterations of CSI. It's either this or join the rest of the Craig Horner fans in trying to save Legend of the Seeker.
