|Which is the better film?|
|The Evil Dead||El Mariachi|
Each would become the first chapter in a cult favorite film trilogy. Both notably were low-budget independent films made by up and coming filmmakers (Sam Raimi/Robert Rodriguez) that would go on to greater popularity. Both center around unassuming protagonists who are unwittingly thrown into extraordinary dangerous circumstances. Both ending on foreboding notes with the leading character (Ash Williams/El Mariachi) as the sole survivor.
