The following video has been floating around online for years, but given that it’s Thursday afternoon here, and this is usually the day when people throw it back to something cool, this is worth bringing attention to again!
This animated tribute to the original EVIL DEAD trilogy was created about 5 years ago by Daniel Kanemoto as a love letter to the series.
Here’s what he said on his vimeo post from the initial release: “This is my cinematic love letter to three influential movies that made me want to be a filmmaker: EVIL DEAD, EVIL DEAD 2, and ARMY OF DARKNESS. I created all the artwork in the sequence, but the final image is directly inspired by an incredible EVIL DEAD poster created by Olly Moss. The moment I saw it, I only wanted to see it move – which is how I feel about all great posters. The new wave of artists working with Mondo have made movie posters worth collecting again, and that’s a great thing. I hope to someday join their ranks.”
Pretty darned awesome, right?
