I think the Evil Dead franchise was one of those rare and wonderful instances where all the right ingredients came together and produced something magical. Director Sam Raimi, producer Rob Tapert and star Bruce Campbell took a story that, bare bones, could have been just another routine slasher movie and elevated the material into something unique. I still remember seeing a midnight showing of the first Evil Dead in Los Angeles, probably 1983, not long after word had started to spread. The crowd went absolutely nuts and I was hooked from that moment on.
I’m not sure it’s for me to see the potential, this is Sam, Rob and Bruce’s world and I’m just temping. That said, from a fan’s perspective, I would love to see an Evil Dead 4 with the three original creators at the helm, because I know they would surprise, amuse and entertain us in ways mere mortals can’t begin to imagine.
