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!

Unfortunately, it looks like
Behind Schedule Productions fell short of their goal to fund this project. Perhaps another go-around?

Nope, they should come up with their own bloody idea.
