Before They Were Stars: Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell Plug “The Evil Dead” on “PM Detroit” in 1982

Kudos to Gill for finding this piece of ultra-obscure footage. This is a 1982 segment from the news program, PM Detroit, featuring a young director named Sam Raimi making an attempt to plug his newest movie, The Evil Dead. At this point, The Evil Dead had already screened at Cannes and gotten a ton of praise from Stephen King, but the filmmakers had not yet found a distributor and are using this appearance to get themselves noticed. This footage is worth watching just to see Bruce Campbell with a pornstache!
