Evil Dead News Visits The Evil Dead Filming Location in Morristown, Tennessee

On November 18, 2011, some friends and I went to the actual filming location of The Evil Dead in Morristown, Tennessee. I got directions to this location online and found them to be quite accurate. Right before we got to what remains of the Evil Dead cabin, we were stopped by a funeral procession - a little spooky, to say the least. Below are pictures, taken in order, as we walked toward the site where The Evil Dead was filmed (click on any image to enlarge):

While in Morristown, we ate at the Little Dutch Restaurant. We were greeted by a woman named Tommy, who said she knew a few locals who Fake Shemped in The Evil Dead. I left my email and phone number with Tommy and hope to hear from some of these people soon.

Bruce Campbell and other cast and crew ate at the Little Dutch while filming The Evil Dead. On the wall of the restaurant is a photo of Bruce and others associated with The Evil Dead visiting the restaurant on the night of the Morristown premiere.
