I am huge fan of the Evil Dead films. They feel very near and dear to my heart. My father (Bart Pierce) did the the SFX for the first Evil Dead....some of which he worked on in the basement of the house I grew up in. If it weren't for all those crazy inspired young punk filmmakers, I may not be making my own films today. I wouldn't be going back to Traverse City in a couple weeks to show my movie at a Festival. I might not even be drawing or animating.
