'Evil Dead' crew member to introduce Redford Theatre screening

When the Redford Theatre screens "The Evil Dead" at midnight Friday, it will mark a homecoming of sorts. The cult horror film from metro Detroit native Sam Raimi had its first public showing at the Redford on Oct. 15, 1981, under its original title: "Book of the Dead." Fledgling filmmaker Raimi was 22 at the time.

Tom Sullivan, who did makeup and special effects for the film, was at that long-ago screening. "I had not seen it all put together," recalls Sullivan, who was shocked at how the initial audience responded with screams and laughter. The low-budget tale involves five college students, including hapless hero Ash (played by Royal Oak native Bruce Campbell), who are terrorized at a creepy cabin in the woods.

"I was so surprised at how it moved, how entertaining and fast-paced it was," Sullivan says. "The audience was huge and they just ate it up."

He'll introduce the film Friday at the Redford and share stories about its creation. Sullivan also plans to film events surrounding Friday's screening for a documentary about the making of "The Evil Dead" and the film's loyal fan base.

Evil Dead remake becomes first NZ-shot feature to use the Sony F65

The remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 cult film Evil Dead has become the first New Zealand-based feature film to shoot with the new Sony F65 camera.

Two major Hollywood feature films have so far used the recently-released high-end digital camera: M Night Shyamalan's upcoming sci-fi film After Earth (starring Will Smith) and, it is understood, Oblivion (starring Tom Cruise), which will both be released next year.

Evil Dead, directed by Fede Alvarez and filmed by cinematographer Aaron Morton, was filmed in Auckland in May. Alvarez said he had seen some of the footage from After Earth, which was filmed in Costa Rica.

"I had seen some demonstration footage from the Sony F65 and the thing that struck me straight away was that it didn't have a sterile digital feeling to it," Morton said in a statement released by Sony. "It had all the resolution and other features that the numbers promised, but it did not have all of those high specs at the expense of a good looking picture."
