Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness Fan Film is Incredibly Groovy


Though it simply wouldn't be true to say that most fan films are worth watching, there's nevertheless something about them that is endlessly alluring.  In the world of fan-made films, absolutely ANYTHING is possible, allowing for fun mash-ups and crossovers that the studios would never be able to provide for us.  Want to see Leatherface battle Jason?  Freddy go toe-to-toe with Michael Myers?  Your wish is YouTube's command!

Though Evil Dead's Ash has never crossed over with any other franchise characters in the world of movies, he has encountered Jason, Freddy and even Herbert West in the world of comic books.  A five-issue comic series was also launched in 2007 called Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness, which pit the chainsaw-handed one-liner spouting badass against zombified versions of Marvel's most iconic superheroes.  Though it's highly unlikely that we'll ever see such wild imagery leap off of the page and onto the screen, at least in an official capacity, one talented fan has taken it upon himself to make such a dream a reality.

Directed by Brian Rosenthal, the 8 1/2 minute fan film Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness is hands down the coolest thing you'll see all week, a comic/horror nerd's wet dream come to life.  Fan films don't get much cooler than this, and I encourage you to take a few minutes out of your day to enjoy it!

Update: Looks like the clip was yanked from YouTube, sorry! We'll update if and when it reappers.
