Luminous Midnight Films is in the middle of making 'Evil Dead Uproot" a documentary about the filming locations of the cult classics Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2.
I am the assistant director and one of the producers among other things. The director Matthew Powell and myself have been paying for all expenses out of pocket and are to the point of needing a little help.
Donations for this will go towards: Continued travel expenses, gear rentals, Legal fees, Licensing, Distribution, and post production expenses.
“Going back and taking a look at the history of the filming locations of the cult classics Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2. Traveling to the filming locations in search of information of how these were picked for the filming spots, what happened after filming and where they are now?
We will be speaking with locals to see how the movie may have affected the town they live in. Extras and the work they put in on the films.
We will have thoughts from the stars of the movies including Bruce Campbell (Ash) and Betsy Baker (Linda), Hal Delrich (Scotty), Ellen Sandweiss (Cheryl), and Theresa Tilly (Shelly).
We also got to chat with artist/make-up/special effects Tom Sullivan and Bart Pierce.
We will be viewing areas in Morristown where Evil Dead was films (Location is Pending approval), speaking with locals there, an archivist and more. We have viewed the remains of the Evil Dead 2 site which was used for the outside scenes of the movie, been to the gym the set was built in, spoke to the owners of both as well as extras who worked on the film and locals who visited the set. We have covered the story of mega fan Mike Pasquale (www.evildeadworkshed.com) who is now in possession of the Work shed from Evil Dead 2 and fans from everywhere we go.
A few more surprises we hope people will enjoy learning about not only the movie making part of film, but the history of a classic movie and where its roots came from.”***All Donations made prior to 10/1/2016 will be counted in the category they are in PLUS the tier above them.
