Todays the first day of
sacrifices submissions and let me tell you it's a bumper crop. Two quick bits of business before we get there. Once more I'd like to thank Deptford for the groovy logo and if you've yet to read his fantastic webcomic Surrealist Obituaries, you should do so forthwith or face the wrath of Eldercash!!!
Also I'd like to remind everyone that there is a contest ongoing with the submissions. The most unusual post, be it review, webcomic, or life sized statue of Bruce Campbell made of Butter gets a shirt from Crazy Dog T-Shirts. This is only the sharpest in S-Mart Finery.
Getting us off to a strong start, the invaluable Stacia at She Blogged By Night, gets us off to a different start. Providing a mini oral/pictoral history of Evil Dead. It's awesome.
Tom Clift at the eponymous reviews by Tom gives us his take on the other end Raimi's career the horror classic Drag Me To Hell.
The Nine Fingered Menace gives his take on Raimi's famous faceless menace Darkman. How great is it that Raimi realized that actor/terrifying Irish Bear Liam Neeson was a badass before anyone else.
Throughout the fest I'll be supplying deep cuts from my own Raimi reviews I've already covered. Here's one I did for Arbogast's The One You Would Have Saved Series about poor poor Ellen Sandweiss.
And taking us out on a strong note for the day, Darren of The M0vie Blog who contributed one of the best pieces to The Christopher Nolan Blogothan was gracious enough to return for Raimifest, and he brought along a great piece about Spiderman 2 with him.
