A Plea To Sam

Mr. Raimi,

Not sure if you're a fan of Lazy Eye Theatre (I'm pretty new), but I'm a fan of you.

So just in case you're reading, I'd like to ask a favor. I mean, I figure you owe me since I put down $7 for the first Spiderman and well, let's just say I didn't get my return on investment. Now you've more than made it up to me with Spiderman 2, but let's just say that you still owe me. So that being said, I was wondering if you could release Crimewave on DVD. I know, I know, you don't think it's your best work, but hey let's quit being so selfish alright. It's not really about you now is it. It's about your fans. And I'm pretty sure there are quite a few of them that would like to add that DVD to their collection.

I know Evil Dead was the beginning of it all, but it seemed like with Crimewave you started to find your groove. And seriously, Bruce Campbell was pretty fantastic. Really when you think about it, there couldn't be the comic-book fun of Darkman or the Spiderman movies without Crimewave. And who knows what would have happened with the Coen brothers if they didn't have Crimewave to cut their writing teeth on. Maybe no Fargo? Who knows.

I know you're super busy on Spiderman 3, but seriously don't you have an assistant director who can watch the shop a couple of days while you make this happen. It would be great if you could call up Bruce and do a dual commentary, but hey beggars can't be choosers right? So what do you say? Quit being a selfish bastard and give us Crimewave on DVD already.

No need to call me, just post a response and a date of the release here. And don't have one of your assistants do it because I'll know.

Many thanks and forever a fan,

Nice. I want to see Crimewave, it sounds very familar. I'm guessing its a cult fav?

Raimi is too busy plotting to ass rape Evil Dead again with another remake. Wasn't Evid Dead 2 enough???

whaaaaa? What's he doing? I haven't heard about this. Is he doing another one to follow up Army Of Darkness or is he remaking one?

Have you heard about Evil Dead: The Musical playing in New York City? It closes on February 17th and I can barely resist the temptation to take a couple of vacation days to fly out to see it.

WTF, Evil Dead: The Musical? Not sure how I feel about that. It would be interesting to see.
