FROM THE PRESS RELEASE
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 11x17 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.
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."
