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.
