Hail to the Deadites is a documentary about the fans of the Evil Dead franchise.Years in the making, Hail To The Deadites finally gets its world premiere at the (virtual) Fantasia International Film Festival at the end of August.
Through interviews with the cast, crew, collectors, fans, freaks and geeks, it seeks to illuminate the darkest reaches of the franchise’s undying and still-growing popularity, a popularity that has spawned four films, a TV series, comic books, figurines, and surpassed even its creator’s wildest dreams.
Beside meeting with fans around the world, the 80-minute documentary feature interviews with Evil Dead franchise cast members such as Bruce Campbell, Ted Raimi, Betsy Baker, Theresa Tilly, Ellen Sandweiss, Richard DeManincor, Tom Sullivan, Dan Hicks, Kassie Wesley DePaiva, Sarah Berry, Rick Domeier and Bill Moseley.
Hopefully, after that, it will soon be available elsewhere.
I love a groovy geeky documentary!
