Geek Tyrant has got the hot scoop on Empire Online’s current competition:

Empire Online is currently holding a great little contest called Done in 60 Seconds Competition. They challenged filmmakers to tell the whole story of a movie in only 60 seconds any way they wanted. They currently have 20 movies that you can watch and vote on right now. FIVE of these will go forward to the Done In 60 Seconds final, to be held in London on March 26, where they will be assessed, along with entries from international finalists, by the Empire staff.

This is very reminiscent of Mad TV’s claymation renditions of our favorite holiday classics like “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”  and turned it into a slew of bloody, gorey, claymaton delights. With Titles like “Raging Rudolph” and ” The Reinfather” they took the goriest scenes from Casino, Goodfellas, and the Godfather and put Rudolph’s hooves into the shoes.

This video is all of our faves, Evil Dead done in 60 seconds…

And for our record, kind of like how one of our writers talked about James Cameron’s soon to be “EPIC FAIL” Avatar, LOL, I am saying right now….I pray to sweet baby jesus and the orphans that they DO NOT remake Evil Dead, or reboot it….But we all know they will. If they made a new Freddy Krueger (Admit it…Robert Englund coulda did it again) they will make a new Ash…

This is pretty fucken hilarious. I don’t know if it’s funnier or worse tha everyone is speaking with British accents.
