Postmodernism with Sam Raimi (or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying About Theory and Love Evil Dead) / Logos. 2014. № 5 (101). P. 51-78
annotation:  According to the author, the trilogy The Evil Dead says more about postmodernity than many of the key texts devoted to this phenomenon, whether it is the paradigmatic text Condition of Postmodern or the wellknown text Cyborg Manifest. This article seeks to operationalize the methods of the humanities, implemented with respect to the three parts of the franchise The Evil Dead. Using the scenes, shots and storylines as examples, the author seeks to explain the main elements related to postmodernity— irony, distrust of metanarratives, allusion, intertextuality, parody, camp, etc. The article is didactic in terms of the way the author shows how the humanities can work with phenomena of popular culture. Thus, referring to specific places in the trilogy The Evil Dead, the author makes it clear even to an untrained reader what postmodernity is and how it can be characterized.
Keywords:  horror, postmodernity, irony, intertextuality, heterotopia
