HAPPY SPOOKY SEASON! Here’s an UNLOCKED BONUS EPISODE. To get access to MORE bonus episodes like this and lotsa extra goodies, support us on Patreon!


Before there was a cabin-in-the-woods movie trope, an inventive young filmmaker and his friends made their first feature-length movie on a shoestring budget. The result remains one of the most influential and enduring horror films of all time.

In this episode, Max and Dorian crack open the book on:
 - the history and making of Evil Dead
 - how Evil Dead is, in some ways, the most accurate depiction of Lovecraftian horror on film
 - the tension between violence and comedy in entertainment
 - a brief breakdown of the other movies, shows, and games in the franchise

Content warning: we briefly discuss (but not in detail) and critique a sexual assault scene in the film.
