The Evil Dead (1981)

The Evil Dead mistake picture

Trivia: Raimi created the "shaky cam", a low budget version of the Steadicam, which he couldn't afford to use for filming. The camera was bolted to a 2x4 piece of wood, and two people held on to each end of the plank and ran through the woods with it. Producer Rob Tapert has said "We did a lot of tests with it, and we were actually very pleased with how it turned out. We never considered the shakiness a problem, we thought it showed the energy of the force behind it."
