PHOTOS: ‘Evil Dead’ 35mm film print marathon, 10/24/14
The Syracuse, New York chapter of the Zombie Research Society and the Palace Theater in Syracuse hosted the grooviest horror marathon imaginable on Friday, Oct. 24, playing 35mm prints of Sam Raimi‘s “The Evil Dead,” “Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn,” “Army of Darkness,” and the 2013 “Evil Dead” remake, but that wasn’t all these Deadites had in store.
Before the original “Evil Dead,” restored by Grindhouse Releasing, played last at midnight, a brick from the chimney of the original “Evil Dead” cabin and art by special effects creator/artist Tom Sullivan was auctioned off to lucky fans – the winning bid by Randy O’Neill (pictured in the blue shirt below) for the brick was $165.
Even Ash Williams himself approved of the festivities:
