Movie: the Evil Dead (with Ellen Sandweiss, Betsy Baker, Theresa Tilly and Hal Delrich in person!)
I don’t think this film needs an introduction by myself. This is one of those iconic films that almost everyone knows, (whether or not they like it is a whole other story though). Obviously I am in the camp of loving the Evil Dead. I remember watching it as a kid and immediately dubbing it in my infinite movie knowledge (sarcastic) as “the best horror movie ever made”. So I have a bias. But, really this movie is about passionate film making. Even though it has since reached cult status, it had humble beginnings and involved a significant amount of sweat and tears to make.
Watching one of my favourite movies of all time in 35mm was fantastic, watching it with four out of five of the actors of said film sitting literally behind you? Well, what really made this event once in a lifetime was that we were still able to heckle all we wanted, and the laughs we heard from behind us… now that’s priceless.
With Shock Stock 2013’s guest list being announced in only a few more days.. who knows what crazy shenanigans and events will take place?
