‘Evil Dead’: Fede Alvarez Shares Nasty Behind-the-Scenes Photos on Film’s Eighth Anniversary!

2013’s Evil Dead has aged incredibly well and has since become revered by many horror fans, including yours truly. As the years go by, it becomes one of my favorite horror films of all time.

Last April, director Fede Alvarez shared unreleased looks behind the scenes of his Evil Dead, offering up a peek at some never-before-seen photos from the set of the sequel/remake to Sam Raimi’s trilogy.

Today, the filmmaker celebrates the eighth anniversary with another handful of shots from the making-of, including a few nasty ones. He also offers up an anecdote behind the machete to knee gag, shared below. He promises that he’s holding a few back for the eventual 10th anniversary!

In Evil Dead, produced by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, five young friends find the Book of the Dead. Unable to resist its temptation, they release a violent demon on a blood-thirsty quest to possess them all.

If you’re looking for something fun to do this coming weekend, here’s why Evil Dead and My Bloody Valentine 3D make for a perfect remake double feature.
