It has always been a dream of mine to find a cabin and re-create Evil Dead 2 as close as possible, or maybe even a goofy sequel. Either way, to do either of those, i would need a dismembered hand walking around , possible about to stick up its middle finger. Is anyone cool enough to make an Evil Dead Hand plugin? That would ROCK!

Eh, the hand's movements would be extremely limited, and it would look fake. How about covering your arm to the wrist in blue or green and then chroma key it all out?

Or you could just do it all practically on set, like they did in Evil Dead 2...
