'Evil Dead' animated tribute: Amazing love letter to Raimi films

This just kicks all kinds of ass.

From the artistry of Daniel Kanemoto and Ex Mortis Films, this animated tribute to Evil Dead takes us on an all-too-brief, brilliant journey through the worlds of the Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell trilogy (The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness).

Kanemoto said he created all the artwork in the sequence, with the final image directly inspired by an incredible Evil Dead poster created by Olly Moss.

"The moment I saw it, I only wanted to see it move – which is how I feel about all great posters. The new wave of artists working with Mondo have made movie posters worth collecting again, and that’s a great thing. I hope to someday join their ranks."

Kanemoto is looking forward to the new Evil Dead remake, currently being filmed by Fede Alvarez with Raimi overseeing. He also says he would not-so-secretly like a chance to pitch his approach for the upcoming film.

Here you go, Mr. Raimi. This is the next wave of talent. Pick it up now.
