Olly Moss' Mondo poster for THE EVIL DEAD is certainly one of the collectible art boutique's most incredible pieces. Daniel Kanemoto thinks so too, and created this ultra neat, animated tribute to both the poster and more so, Sam Raimi's unforgettable trilogy as a whole.
Badass Digest picked up on Kanemoto's clip, which he created through his Ex Mortis Films, and in just under two minutes beautifully captures the bloody, gonzo, breakneck vibe of the EVIL DEAD movies and why exactly we love them so.
Here's a little of what the director had to say about his love for the series, "As a teenager stuck in the middle of middle school, all I wanted to do was make movies, so naturally I spent all of my free time watching them. I stalked the aisles of the Super 29 video store, and decided to rent every movie in the horror section… alphabetically."
"I wound up stuck in the Es, because after I watched EVIL DEAD 2, all I did was pop it into the rewinder (remember those?) and watched it again. And again. And then about a million more times after that."
"It was scary, hilarious, gross, and insanely inventive, especially when it came to all the abuse suffered by Bruce Campbell… and all of the creative ways Sam Raimi found to propel his camera through the walls of that blood soaked cabin in the woods. (My favorite part is still any moment where it feels like the camera itself is about to beat the shit out of poor Ash)."
"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."
Hope you enjoy as much as I. Now, I think I'll go watch EVIL DEAD, and wish Moss' artwork hung on my wall.
