35 years ago, Sam Raimi revolutionized the face of independent filmmaking with the premiere of The Evil Dead. Fright-Rags commemorates the influential horror classic with an officially-licensed collection of merchandise dedicate to the ultimate experience in grueling terror.
A line of shirts designed by Justin Osbourn, Christopher Franchi, Coki Greenway, Christopher Lovell, and Scarecrowoven feature everything fans love about the The Evil Dead: Bruce Campbell as Ash, the Necronomicon, deadites, the cabin, ominous woods, and mayhem. Each design is available on unisex or girls shirts, while Osbourn’s art also comes on a baseball tee.
The film’s iconic poster art is available on a blue heathered shirt. Custom-knit crew socks designed Joe Guy Allard include a pattern of cabins and chainsaws. Franchi’s artwork can also be purchased on an 11×17 poster for $10.
“The Evil Dead holds a special place in my heart,” explains Fright-Rags founder Ben Scrivens. “When Tim – my childhood friend and now shipping manager – and I rented it one fateful night, we didn’t know what we were in for. It scared the ever-living shit out of us. Truly. It is an example of how good a movie can be when made for next to nothing. To this day, it remains among my top favorites, and I’m happy to say that no I longer have to cover my eyes when watching it.”
“Join us” at Fright-Rags.com, where the Evil Dead collection is available now. Quantities are limited and may sell out, so don’t miss out on these groovy items.
Also be sure to check back with Fright-Rags next Wednesday, June 15th, for the debut of a new parody shirt dubbed “Motley Krueger – Too Fast for Glove.”
