I know they were trying to make a horror film, but I thought this movie was hilarious the first time I watched it (and, of course, subsequent times). I enjoyed it so much, I got the widescreen DVD which has a ton of bonus features including a commentary by star Bruce Campbell (my favorite - listening to his recollection of how the movie was made and everything they had to endure was even more entertaining than the film itself), a commentary with Sam Raimi (writer/director) and Robert Tapert (one of the producers), extra footage, trailers, bios, tv spots, and a still gallery. If you are a big fan of the movie, the commentaries contain all kinds of fun trivia that will be of interest to you. For instance, I did not realize they started filming in 1978, but the movie was not actually released until 1983, because they kept running out of money. Also, there were no stunt doubles, and the actors were getting pretty beat up. The commentaries are very interesting (and fun) to listen to. Parts of the movie were filmed in northern Michigan, and other parts were filmed in Tennessee. The run time for just the movie itself, (which is unrated) is 85 minutes, but the extra features provide hours of entertainment.
