From Lee Hardcastle, who brought you The Thing claymation starring cute, bloody gutty gore-covered penguins, here’s your Evil Dead II with… uh… yes, cats. It preserves the Evil Dead II life lessons, such as “Do not read from the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis” and “Modified chainsaws are nifty,” but puts some cat ears on it. Then, explodes them off into stop-motion-animated, mystic gross goo.
We can see that Hardcastle is progressing in his mastery since the penguin Thing. See the withering, ghostly tendrils. Such details. The possessed, groaning skull so artfully exploded from a blast of a shotgun… how many frames is that? Nice.
Bet the animator was one weird kid growing up.
