So this is pretty freaking cool...

With the release of Evil Dead just a few short months away, we thought it would be fun to share the one that started it all! Within the Woods is a 30-minute short directed by and starring , the team that brought us the original The Evil Dead and its two sequels, Evil Dead 2, and Army Of Darkness.

Original franchise star is also featured in this reel created to inspire investors and raise money for the perennial 1981 horror classic. Watch this piece of inspired movie history, which proves to be quite an eyeful.

Within The Woods is a relic to horror movies. For those who were actually familiar with this precursor movie prior to this post, I tip my hat to you. Okay, so the quality of the video is garbage, but if that it what it takes to watch Raimi's short again, I'll deal with it. Besides, it wouldn't necessarily feel right if it looked gorgeous, would it?

I can't wait until Raimi's April 12 re-imagining. What about you? Does this short whet your appetite for evil? Let us know in the comment section below, and [[follow]] here to stay updated with all the Evil Dead-themed news.
