The DVD authoring has been tweaked, menus added, and given proper packaging, but the actual transfers are the same. Further, the Torro, Torro, Torro!

You can place your order via the newly updated Super8Shorts. As we're still in the duplicating phase, we expect the first batch of deliveries to be sent out in weeks.

To website updates, the newly released Super8Shorts. Also, huge thanks to German fan Niels Enkelmann, the screen-used axe has been identified and information added to the The Evil Dead Props page.

The audio player coding across a number of pages has been upgraded to HTML5, to give it better compatibility. It 'should' now work across most modern browsers.

Please note; We don't wish to tread on anyone's toes, simply to allow fans to listen to material they can't officially buy.

If there are still any copyright holders out there would rather their audio was not included here, please send over an email, and it'll be immediately removed.

Huge thanks to both Demonovation and DeusExMachina for loaning out their original source tapes, it's hugely appreciated! If anyone else out there has any rare Evil Dead related material which they'd be prepared to loan out for digital transfer, please get it touch via email; Lastly, a personally made 1: There, in addition to Antonio's project, you'll find a detailed write-up of this new project, with extensive progress and completed model photos.

The project took fourteen weeks from start to finish, working a few hours most evenings after work. It's still some way off Antonio's standard, was tricker to make, and took much longer than originally anticipated, but the result is still a pretty decent model.

Just to add; I won't be making any duplicate models for sale, so don't ask! Expect them both to be added to the site in the next few weeks as they're completed.

Firstly, one new magazine scan has been added to the Magazines page in the Features section ; Starfix No. While it's a French language publication, it does have a number of previously unseen photos, and is well worth a look.

Although the quality isn't great, this will hopefully be upgraded soon scan thanks to Paul. This is primarily due to two related Evil Dead projects which have been eating up much of my spare time.

I wanted to make a better job of the transfer than I did with Demonovation's tapes in , so I bought an upgraded pro capture card. The second Evil Dead project is a 1: It's taken a month so far, and will probably take one more before it's done.

Expect that to be added to the site in the near future. To site updates, one new entry has been added into the Fan Collections page ; the huge collection of Peter Eherer from Germany.

Thanks to him for taking the time to do this, and allowing his collections to be added. A few updates have been made to the The Rarest Collectables page within the Collectables section.

Huge thanks for Daniel Culligan's assistance in getting this. Tom still sells copies of both at conventions. The finished item is truly astounding, and well worth it's own BookOfTheDead.

This is not quite the case. The farmhouse was actually owned by friends of the Tapert family. They apparently still get periodical checks to this day for allowing the filming there.

A new page; The Rarest Collectables page has been added. Another story was over 40, while still one more topped 50 pages. In a really good anthology, I can deal with one novella, but three stories of that length just kills my motivation to keep reading on a daily basis.

And really, length is my only gripe with this one. All of the authors involved are recognizable names in the horror field, and these stories show why that is.

None of the stories felt cobbled together just because there was a zombie anthology looking for stories, and none of them felt as if they were pre-existing stories with a little editing done in post to turn them into zombie stories, even though for all I know this was exactly the case in at least one or two instances.

If it was, the authors hid it well. Pay attention to this table of contents, folks. Nonetheless, it was titillating.

Here, I give you a taste of it: Instead, he reached into a headboard compartment and brought out a rubber mask festooned with sewn leather and buckles and shiny gold zippers.

It almost made her laugh. The contraption engulfed her head like a thick,too-tight glove. She thought of getting stuck in a pullover Scary-shit.

She thought of getting stuck in a pullover sweater, only this material was definitely nonporous. Her lungs felt brief panic until the thing was fully seated and she could gulp air through the nose and mouth slits.

Then Quinn resumed pushing himself into her, his prodding more urgent now. He broke rhythm only to zip the holes in the mask shut.

Fear blossomed loud in her chest, becoming a fireball. She pulled in a final huge draught of air before he zipped the nose shut, and wasted breath making incomprehensible muling noises against the already-sealed mouth hole.

Quinn loved every second of it, battering her lustily despite her abrupt lack of lubrication. The friction vanished when he came inside her.

Cos what happen after this IS the scary part. View all 27 comments. A friend of mine lent me this book, and I read it over the Christmas holiday of I know that zombies aren't proper Christmas undead ghosts are - just ask Charles Dickens , but what the hell?

To be honest, I couldn't remember all of the stories, so I pulled the contents from Wikipedia and will make a note of what I remember about each of them.

Like a lot of fiction from this genre, some were really good, but most weren't - and an attempt at social commentary was usually the deciding factor i A friend of mine lent me this book, and I read it over the Christmas holiday of Like a lot of fiction from this genre, some were really good, but most weren't - and an attempt at social commentary was usually the deciding factor in either case.

Cover I have to address the cover of this book: I know you can't judge a book by its cover, but I mean, really, it looks like a book about witchcraft, or ghosts, or demonic possession.

I have no idea who picked the artwork, but he or she should be subjected to one of the gruesome endings that the characters within the book eventually meet!

Foreword by George A. Romero Supposedly, all of the stories in the book were either set in George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" universe or were deeply inspired by it.

I have no idea what George actually said in the forward, but I am sure sure it was a humble recognition of his own stature as the father of the genre.

God bless you, George, you sick fuck! New Hope for the Future" by Skipp and Spector I have no idea what these guys had to say either; unlike Romero's forward, I probably didn't even read it, actually.

Schow This was the story of a man and his undead whore. She didn't start out that way, but apparently she didn't manage to say the safe word before choking to death on her own vomit, then tearing her jon's penis off with her zombie vagina.

No, I'm not kidding. I didn't really care for this story, and the author has no one but himself to blame because when he went for subtlety instead of shock, his writing wasn't half bad.

The last page of the story describes shocked hotel employees who had seen a good-looking, up-scale call girl I like to think of Julie Roberts in "Pretty Woman" go into a room, and witness a blood-spattered undead corpse, bloated from consuming its patron come out.

Zombie short fiction writers seem to have a think for castration and penis mutilation - I'm almost positive the undead avenger avengerette?

I think as a whole the body of his work is overrated, and I'll be damned why it seems to be that his best books are awful movies. Whether it is or it isn't, the zombie plague is apparently an extra-terrestrial un life form that the press has dubbed "Star Wormwood.

To be honest, I wish the story had been about the ill-fated astronauts who attempted to rendezvous with Star Wormwood.

That's pretty much this story. Well, it happens again in this story. There is a particularly graphic passage about what happens when you grab a man by his junk and disembowel him by jerking up really hard.

Props to the author. It's hard to have an over-the-top gross-out scene in a zombie story that doesn't involve necrophilia, and this story has it.

Oh, and it also has some necrophilia, too. It really didn't have anything to do with zombies, Romero-esque or otherwise.

All around the world people are shaking their heads violently for no apparent reason. If you ask them why they're unresponsive.

If you grab them by their head, then their body twists beneath them. Eventually, everyone's' heads come off, and it turns out that their abdomens have mutated into giant maws that eat them.

The only thing missing from this story was someone's belly button moaning "brains! Zombies will act out the things they see in porn with each other!

Incredibly, zombies breed healthy, cherubic little human babies and don't eat them, but feed them strained peas and carrots until their human offspring are mature enough to reanact porn on their own, thus perpetuating the cycle of living and undead sex.

Les Daniels clearly needs to get laid, though I have to give him credit - the zombie birthing process made me laugh out loud and slightly nauseated all at the same time.

Winter What if "Less Than Zero" had been a zombie movie? Yeah, I still wouldn't have liked it much then, either.

Boyett My favorite story of the bunch, "Like Pavlov's Dogs" is set primarily in a biosphere whose inhabitants survive the zombie apocalypse unscathed.

Much like the biker gang in the original "Dawn of the Dead," this story teaches us that even in a world of ravenous, shambling corpses we have far more to fear from the living than the dead.

I can't recall this story, either. Lansdale Lots and lots of necrophilia and post-zombie-apocalypse depravity on the part of the surviving human beings.

If you've ever wondered how you might go about staffing a brothel with zombie whores I know I have! However, if you get hold of a freshly dead hottie again, I'm looking at you, Julie Roberts and bolt the right electronic components to her noggin, you don't have to resort to dismemberment to enjoy her company, though you will have to work harder at getting into her pants.

If you think my summary was painful to read, you should try the actual story. Lansdale, shame on you!

I hear Brian Hodge is working on a sequel for sweeps week. Schow Another "the living are more dangerous than the living dead" parable.

Pound for pound, this is the grossest story in the book. At the same time, it probably has given hope to dozens of lonely, obese, cannibalistic teens who are just waiting for the zombie apocalypse so they can have someone to relate to McCammon Not McCammon's finest work "Night Boat," which he oddly refuses to allow to be republished was an awesome zombie story.

The answer, of course, is "yes" and - unsurprisingly - involves genital mutilation. Why do I give this book four stars? Well, for starters, it was a zombie anthology long before zombie anthologies were cool.

Secondly, it attempted to do for Romero's work what fanzines did for "Star Trek" during the s and into the s before the franchise was expanded and eventually bastardized beyond recognition.

And just like some of the early published "Star Trek" stories were complete shit cough Sondra Marshak and Myrna Culbreath Thirdly, I really don't think that the current zombie-mania would have happened if it weren't for respected horror writers contributing to "Book of the Dead.

And lastly, Goodreads doesn't allow you to give three-and-a-half-stars. Nov 01, John Reppion rated it liked it. Published in , the anthology boasts a foreword from George A.

With authors such as Steven King, Joe R, Lansdale, Ramsey Campbell and Richard Laymon contributing tales, this is an A-list affair, especially given that many of the featured writers were at the peak of their popularity at the time the book was first published.

Thatcher and Cowboy Ronnie sending out cards from their private underground bunkers. Anthologies by their very nature are a mixed bag and Book of the Dead is no exception.

There are some really enjoyable tales in the book: Campbell goes for discomfort and creeping menace, perhaps deliberately avoiding the no holds barred splatter which drips off the surrounding pages and I think it really pays off.

Then there are the bad parts and these are more general, more to do with the book as a whole and the way things sort of add up from story to story.

When I was first getting into horror in the early nineties James Herbert was the author whose work I was truly hungry for and raced through as fast as I could.

Returning to his work years later I was actually quite shocked and disappointed by some of the material in there, especially when it came to sex.

All of that said, I really enjoyed the book generally. A real stand out story for me was Choices by Glen Vasey, whose work I have never encountered before.

Choices manages to capture the right atmosphere and achieve a real sense of balance; lots of humanity, lots of pathos but still plenty of horror and action.

Overall, Book of the Dead is a very enjoyable and important anthology, though you may have to take certain stories with a pinch of salt.

But overall a very good collection. Particularly that short story I already mentioned. I had to do some creative Googling today just to find the book that contained one of the best horror short stories I have ever read in my life.

I definitely recommend this book. Come on, just read the premise behind this collection! View all 4 comments. Winter the story by Stephen King was reprinted with comic-style illustration in Secretary of the dead and Joe Lansdale's story was adapted into a comic book ooh, and a chapbook!

Oct 09, Mark marked it as to-read. McCammon's, Lansdale's, and Schow's stories are must-read. Laymon's Mess Hall was sadly disappointing.

Lansdale is now known for Hap and Leonard mysteries, but he is really the master of the horror short story. Don't read it if you don't like really graphic violence, and I don't mean that in any cute, wink-wink way.

This book probably goes over the line, but I find it a guilty pleasure. Mar 01, Brad Carter rated it it was amazing.

Given the recent popularity of zombies, it's hard to believe this anthology hasn't been brought back into print. It seems to me that many of the stories have been reprinted elsewhere, so perhaps there are now legal issues surrounding that?

Douglas Winter's "Less Than Zombie" is a hilarious Brett Easton Ellis parody that brings zombies and bored rich kids together in a very splatter-ific story.

And that's the thing. The emphasis here is on splatter, which is not wholly surprising given that splatterpunk was still being hailed as the next big thing back when this book was published.

I'd argue that not all zombie lit need be splatter oriented. Even Romero's Day of the Dead--when stripped of a few gory set pieces--had a heavy philosophical bent.

Most of these stories just go for the throat, not necessarily a bad thing, just a little monotonous.

Now that there are a million zombie anthologies out there, you could do worse than this one. A good friend of mine recommended this book to me, said it was age old, and the copy I bought looks as though it's been around since the dawn of time.

It was a good read though, well worth the couple of pounds I spent to have it flown over from America. It's an excellent collection of zombie literature with works from names such as Stephen King and Robert R.

I felt it was a bit slow at the start and almost gave up, but it got me just at the right moment and came to a great zombieriffic conclusion. All in all, nice read from people who know what they're doing.

And what a selection.

The German officials are happy enough to send Nägeli off with an enormous amount of money and vague plans to film a proper horror film. Evil Dead hatte seine Weltpremiere am 9.

Another as-yet unannounced project involving UK fan Michael Witchy is also in the works. Extensive photos of a fantastic third cabin model have been added to the Cabin Miniature Scale Models page.

Huge thanks to French fan Anthony for those eight scans. John played the afro'd waiter in Torro, Torro, Torro!

Lastly, two new scans have been added to the site, one new magazine scan to the Magazines page in the Features section ; UK publication Melody Maker Vol.

Just to fill in newcomers, the original project was conceived as an Evil Dead inspired fanmade short film in February As a short filmmaker, it was to be made simply for the love of film-making.

The Indiegogo campaign ran from April to June , but less than a quarter of that financial goal was raised. By September, and after much thought, I came to the conclusion that the best avenue was to refund the money to the backers, and the project was put on hold.

In January I decided to take the project partially forward out of my own pocket. I created a new second trailer by filming specially selected shots from the full fanfilm's storyboards.

That trailer was released online and the project was put to rest once again. This is my third recent short film project.

You can see my previous short film projects on the Personal Short Films page. The final trailer is currently as far as this project has progressed.

I may eventually try to make a second attempt to raise adequate funding to shoot the whole thing, or just leave the trailer as a stand alone fanfilm trailer in it's own right.

Either way, I won't be rushing into anything for the moment. Should you wish to, you can get in touch via email at;. June 9, - Super8Shorts.
