Sam Raimi's trio of Campbell has its moments of great writing, chills, and blood, while also being a great example of a "don't take it seriously film" that is still, simply, funny. And, if you agree, you should love the clip after the jump, spotted by The Flickcast over at Vimeo. Filmmaker Lee Hardcastle boiled the first The Evil Dead down to 60 seconds, and did it all with clay. The result: a ridiculously funny little short that offers laughs and that great claymation rarely used these days. Warning: It might inspire you to run to the toy store and buy a whole lot of Play-Doh.
I can only hope that we have two more installations to come, with chainsaws, boomsticks, and mini Ash attacks. Please, Lee Hardcastle?
