The Ladies of The Evil Dead Interview - "It Was Different Than"

The 2013 Montreal Comiccon/Horrorfest was rife with celebrities, and the obvious big draw might have been George Takei (Star Trek) or maybe Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), but there were three ladies in attendance whom we just had to talk to. These were The Ladies of The Evil Dead: Ellen Sandweiss, Betsy Baker, and Theresa Tilly. Together, along with Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, they created one of horror's most beloved films, the cult-classic The Evil Dead (1981). And the three of them formed one of the greatest trio of women since Shakespeare penned "Double, double toil and trouble/ Fire burn, and caldron bubble." Come to think of it, these ladies should campaign for the part in a Hollywood production of Macbeth.

Since I'm not aware of any Macbeth productions coming down the pipeline, let's focus on where you can see these women. Obviously, in the film The Evil Dead and at cons, but also in their webseries Dangerous Women, 2007′s Brutal Massacre: A Comedy, and, most recently, Raimi's Oz the Great and Powerful.
