Talking about the ‘Evil Dead’

WADESBORO — Three filmmakers trekked deep into the woods south of Lilesville last week in search of the location for something that took place 30 years ago.

They found what they were looking for: an old cabin, mostly collapsed.

This isn’t a sequel to “The Blair Witch Project.”

Rather, it’s a documentary highlighting the locations of the first two films in the “Evil Dead” franchise.

“Surreal,” Matthew Powell said about being at the cabin site while waiting in the Ansonia Theatre on Friday for local residents to share their memories of the production of “Evil Dead II.” “That’s my favorite movie ever, so being on the place they filmed it was like holy land for me.”

Powell is the director of “Evil Dead Uproot,” a film which started off as a short documentary about Mike Pasquale’s restoration of the woodshed from the movie, but has since expanded in scope.
