For our second episode Jam and Fred dive deep into the woods with Sam Raimi’s 1982 horror cult classic The Evil Dead.  Whether it was edited, banned, or hated upon, this is one of the earliest instances of a movie too gory and brutal for many audiences.  The original “cabin in the woods” tale about 5 friends who awaken evil spirits and are unable to leave is horror at its best.  Listen to the two discuss the film, and its finer points, for nearly the length of the work itself.
