The Rain

When Sam Raimi makes it rain, he doesn't fool around. He brought in some heavy-duty rain-making equipment which could do 4,000 gals. per minute! He could make it rain over the entire length of the main street of the town.

They used two full-sized above-ground swimming pools as reservoirs for rainmaking.

They had some very large cranes to hold up the rain bars.

They also used sprinklers on poles for localized rain, that is, closeups and rain outside a window or door.

There were, of course, fire hoses stretched all over town.
