My mind almost melted after watching this short, "Attack of the Helping Hand!" Shot in 1979, this six minutes of lunacy is about a woman being tormented by a murderous Hamburger Helper mascot as she tries to cook dinner. Starring Linda Quiroz (Stryker's War), Sam Raimi appears as a milkman who (spoiler alert!) is killed by the five-fingered psycho. The film was written and directed by Scott Spiegel, who wrote Evil Dead II as well as appearing in the Evil Dead trilogy and most of Sam Raimi's subsequent films. (Spiegel has other genre credits to his name, including Hostel III and From Dusk Til Dawn 2.) Raimi helped shoot the short, along with some guy named Bruce Campbell.
