Equinox is a great film that has been a personal favorite since my early childhood. Heck, I still own a silent 12 minute Super 8 version! Four teens head off to the woods to have a picnic and visit their professor. They find an ancient tome of witchcraft and evil and soon find that hell is alive and well in the woods of Northern California. Frank Bonner, who played Jim, later went on to star as Herb Tarlick in the TV comedy "WKRP in Cincinnati." If it were not for this film, "The Evil Dead" and it's sequels may not exist as Raimi was influenced strongly by certain plot elements in "Equinox." Check out the story in pictures on the following pages, I promise I wont spoil TOO much of the flick for you! There are some audio files which will require that you have a Realaudio player to hear. If you don't already have it on your system, you can download a free player here.

Onto the feature!
