This week features the 1981 film “The Evil Dead“. Before there were chainsaw-hands, armies of skeletons, or a television series, there was the original. While certainly not a perfect film, it’s hard to argue the effect it had on horror culture for the next forty years. Our hosts dive deep into the film’s Playdough-looking guts.

Welcome to the eighth circle of podcast hell. This is Midnight Murderama, the weekly podcast where I, Jamie, resident undead expert, and my two friends, JT and Russell, take a deep, lonely dive into the dark recesses of Hollywood.
Join us as we meticulously research, argue over, and finally rate and review the most horrific and terrifying films ever made — with the ultimate goal to hilariously examine exactly what it is about ourselves that makes us love the horror movies that define us, and to determine which of these legendaries films deserve a place in the pantheon of horror, blasted onto the twisted face of Mount Murdermore.
