Tested: How The Evil Dead's Tom Sullivan Mastered Low-Budget Effects

When Sam Raimi went to college at Michigan State, he formed a tight group of filmmaking friends. Scott Spiegel, who wrote Evil Dead 2, bonded with Raimi over their mutual love of The Three Stooges. Bruce Campbell became Raimi’s square jawed leading man, and Rob Tapert would become Sam’s long time producer. Another important member of that filmmaking fraternity was Tom Sullivan, who did the make-up effects for The Evil Dead. If Raimi's seminal horror debut is renowned for its low-budget production, it was Sullivan who gets the credit for providing those memorable scares with such limited resources.

Masters of Horror: Interview with Tom Sullivan by David Kempf

When I was a young teen, I saw the first EVIL DEAD movie and it scared the hell out of me. I equally enjoyed the sequels EVIL DEAD 2 and ARMY OF DARKNESS.

Tom Sullivan worked as a effects artist in makeup and stop motion animation in both EVIL DEAD sequels.

Tom is a lifelong fan of horror and fantasy movies and is very popular with art collectors seeking to purchase EVIL DEAD related art. It was fun to interview Tom about his past accomplishments and future plans in the horror field.

eBay: EVIL DEAD II : The Army of Darkness - Original 1985 early Trade AD /poster advert

Click to enlarge:


Original 1985 LARGE print advertisement carefully removed from an entertainment industry trade magazine promoting Evil Dead II: The Army of Darkness (apparently the originally intended title). Some of these ads are early pre-release, pre-production, or screening announcements featuring rare artwork or titles that were later changed for the actual release.

This vintage advertisement is not a photocopy or reprint; most of these ad types were very briefly published and never commercially reproduced. Ready to be matted and/or framed.
  • Measures approx. 11” x 15½. Fragile newspaper/newsprint type paper, making still intact ads like this one often more rare than posters.
  • Good condition, noticeable aging/yellowing - see scan (dark border is scanner background, not part of ad).
  • No ebay watermark on actual ad.
  • Reverse/back side will generally have ads, photos, articles, etc.
  • Shipped rolled in a solid crush-proof PVC tube. If ordering additional ads normally sent flat, all ads (entire order) will be shipped together in the tube.
  • I ship multiple Magazine Ad purchases in the U.S. together at no extra charge (use Ebay's "Add To Cart" feature).

Evil Dead Cabin (working title) - w.i.p.

Quick look of the progress from my incoming short animation (2-3minutes). It doesn't have a title yet, ED cabin is a working title. Story wouldn't be related to the story from ED II. Final animation will be ready in early 2015, I hope so :) Fingers crossed! Sound deliver (as always) by Bluezone Corp.
