June 30, 2020 - Michael Jonascu Interview
You can now head over to the Features section to read an interview conducted with Michael Jonascu. Michael was a PA & assistant editor on Evil Dead II, meeting the group first on Thou Shalt Not Kill... Except, but remaining friends long after. He has a wealth of great anecdotes about his time on both productions, and the preceding years. Michael has also provided scans of nearly one hundred photos he took himself took during his time on Evil Dead II. Most have never been publicly seen before, so huge thanks to him for taking the time to do that.
This interview was actually conducted back in December 2019, but due to the current situation, and how extensive it is, it's taken until now to get online. The interview lasted over three hours and the raw transcription was nearly 30,000 words over thirty-two A4 pages, by far the biggest on this site to date!
Some interesting new information has been added to The Evil Dead - Props page, concerning Rubber Hand owned by US fan Dennis Carter Jr, which could-possibly-may be a actual screen used fake hand from The Evil Dead, or could just be a complete coincidence. If anyone reading this can shed any light on this item, please get in touch.
Three new magazine scans have been added to the Magazines page in the Features section; Movie Goer - March 1983, Samhain #21 - June-July 1990, and Video World - May 1995.
Finally, a new page has been added to the Within The Woods section; Within The Woods - DVD Film Can page. This details a personal fanmade DVD project from November 2019, to put the best version of Within The Woods on a DVD, with special 'film can' packaging. Ten of these were made in total, and nine were either given away, or traded with other fans. There are currently no plans to make any more.
March 22, 2020 - Collectables Additions
One-hundred-and-five new and upgraded images/item scans have been added to the Collectables section. That breaks down to thirty-two trilogy posters, thirty trilogy VHS releases, twenty-eight trilogy DVD releases, three standees, three promo badges, one t-shirt, one VCD, one OST cassette, and a handful of other assorted bits & pieces. A huge thanks to French fan Anthony for a good few of the entries, along with German fan Peter Ehere, Italian Emanuele Crivello, Australian Harry Ewald, and finally the webmaster of EvilDead2.com; UK fan Kyle Pickup too.
March 8, 2020 - Various Additions
Some interesting new information has been added to The Evil Dead - Locations page, concerning an oil lantern owned by US fan Dennis Carter Jr, which could-possibly-may be the actual screen used lantern from The Evil Dead, or could just be a complete coincidence. If anyone reading this can shed any light on this item, please get in touch.
Six new & upgraded magazine scans have been added to the Magazines page in the Features section; Screen International #336 - April 3, 1982, Screen International #387 - April 2, 1983, Screen International #487 - March 16, 1985, Screen International #524 - November 30, 1985, Video World Vol.5 No.4 - April 1983, and New Musical Express / NME - February 26 1983. Two further new scans have been added to The Evil Dead - In-Print page; The Evil Dead - LA International Film Expo Filmmex Notes - 1983 and The Evil Dead - Peru Lobby Card - 1986. Thanks to French fan Anthony for scans of the last entry.
Apologies for the lack up recent updates, moving house has taken up so much spare time recently, and a fair collection of material to add to the site has been building up, so expect more additions.
Two new pages have been added within the Features section. The first; Book Of The Dead - A Photobook, details a personal Evil Dead book project worked on over four months; from September 2019 up to the end of January 2020. The page includes a free digital PDF version of the book, along with photos of the production process. The second addition is a page devoted to Alex Lanco's Cellar Display. It details a 2018-2020 project by Australian fan Alex Lanco to create an Evil Dead display room, containing many replica props and set-pieces, as well as displaying his huge collection. It's monumental project, more than worthy of its own page.
One new entry has been added into the Fan Collections page; the collection of David Munoz from Texas. Thanks to him for taking the time to do this, and allowing his collection to be added.
Lastly, the Michael Jonascu interview mentioned in the previous update is being worked on. Michael also has a large number of previously unseen Evil Dead II on-set photos, so expect that addition shortly.
