Why does director Sam Raimi insist on putting his Delta 88 Oldsmobile in each of his projects (including, so legend has it, his 1995 Western, The Quick and the Dead)? Well, maybe it’s because the car saved the lives of both Raimi and producer Robert Tapert when they drove back from the shoot of the original Evil Dead.
That’s one of several informational tidbits to be gleaned from a new video put together by the Ash vs Evil Dead team to celebrate an automobile whose credits — which also include Darkman, A Simple Plan, Drag Me to Hell, and Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy — are the envy of most actual actors.
Season 2 of Ash vs Evil Dead is currently screening Sunday nights on Starz. You can see the exclusive video about Raimi’s Delta 88, above.
