3. Ellen Sandweiss in The Evil Dead
"While every aspect of this production was total hell – and lord knows Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi gave it their all – the one that really impresses is Ellen Sandweiss.

It took hours to do during what was apparent one of the coldest nights of the shoots. She ran and ran and ran in a little night gown until finally standing up and saying that she was done."
