The Evil Dead Franchise has had a long and amazing run. Spreading across many forms of media like movies, video games, comics, and television. And it all started with a small group of friends who wanted to make a movie in the woods. The story of what Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, Rob Tapert made in those woods has inspired many aspiring filmmakers over the years and the hard work they put into this series has entertained millions.
Long live the King.
Footage from movies and first season of the TV show was obtained by ripping DVD/Blu-rays that I had purchased over the years and in the case of Seasons 2 and 3 of Ash vs Evil Dead I used a screen recording software in combination on the STARZ app that I paid for. The video game cutscenes were taken from YouTube.
