    One thought on “The Evil Dead Companion”

    1. While not initially a very financially successful franchise, "The Evil Dead" trilogy is probably the most influential film series in history, second only to "Star Wars." Countless filmmakers who started in horror and moved on to bigger, better films cite Sam Raimi and "The Evil Dead" as influences. Even established horror directors working at the time these films were made were influenced by them. Countless imitators followed in their wake, including professional releases as well as student film [...]

    2. Anything you've ever wanted to know about the Evil Dead and the folks who created it. A must-read for any self-respecting Sam Raimi or Bruce Campbell fan.

    3. Adoro leituras sobre bastidores, principalmente de obras cinematográficas. Evil Dead é um dos meus filmes favoritos, Sam Raimi e Bruce Campbell são pessoas que fazem parte da minha infância e contribuíram para meu amor por cinema, então eu sou a pior pessoa pra dar uma opinião imparcial sobre este livro. Talvez meu único problema seja a forma hiperbólica que o autor fala do Raimi algumas vezes, mas até eu falaria dele com tamanha disposição.

    4. Até o começo desse ano eu tinha uma tremenda falha de caráter: nunca tinha assistido a trilogia Evil Dead. O empurrão que eu precisava veio através do livro Evil Dead: Arquivos Mortos, escrito por Bill Warren e transformado numa linda edição de luxo pela Darkside Books.Bill Warren, esse danado crítico de cinema, conseguiu reunir documentos, entrevistas e muitas, muitas, muitas informações sobre Sam Raimi, o diretor e roteirista da série de filmes, dos produtores Bruce Campbell e Rob T [...]

    5. A very inviting and entertaining look into the grandaddy of all horror series "The Evil Dead." Bill Warren gives the reader a behind the scenes look into the world of Sam Raimi and how "the Ultimate Experience in Grueling Horror" came to be from the ground up. It also gives a very informative view on the famed director, it's principal actor (Bruce Campbell) and the other key players (Robert Tapert, Scott Speigel, etc.) that came together to bring these cult classics to life. Although interesting [...]

    6. Thoroughly comprehensive, this is a fascinating look behind the Evil Dead story, taking in the lives of its protagonists (essentially, biographies of the Raimi boys, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert). Starting with them at school and joining forces as they got older, this is full of detail about the filming and the aftermath. Honest, funny and a sheer joy to read, this is a great resource and highly recommended.

    7. If you're an Evil Dead fan than you will love it. Tons of detailed background on the making of the 3 movies, plus a blow by blow of each film with lots of comments from Bruce Campbell about the scenes as they played out (essentially a DVD commentary in a book). Awesome stuff!

    8. I haven't finished the book because it reads like a poorly written history text, which is why it gets a poor review. If ever I plod all the way through perhaps I will update my rating.
