Did you miss our initial post on regarding the Deadite Of The Day contest? If not – don’t worry. We’re accepting submissions up until until the end of the day at deadite@bloody-disgusting.com (head inside for the full list of rules)! Winners will be announced daily from March 25th – April 5th (weekends excluded). Submissions will be open the whole time, so if you see something you think you can top… TOP IT!

Today’s winner is Dennis Carter Jr.! He has an amazing, HUGE collection of Evil Dead memorabilia. Much of it official. I’ve included 17 images – but would you believe I had to pare that down? I think I got dozens more! In his own words, “My collection consists of actual movie props, replicas, toys, books, promo items, CD’s, photos, and collectables. Some of the highlights of my collection are:

1: The only surviving movie prop of Ash’s possessed hand from Evil Dead 2. There were two that were made for the stop motion sequences. One was destroyed years ago. This one is the only one that survived. 2: One of the Lost Pages of the necronomicon from Evil Dead 2 showing the Winged Deadite. This one was used during filming and has some of the fake blood used on the actors on it. 3: A production made but unused Winged Deadite head from the Winged Deadite in Evil Dead 2. It was made and painted by one of the people who worked on the film.

I actually have to stop it there and include his full list of “highlights” below the photo gallery iside because it’s so long.
Remember there are still TWO winners left to announce this week – and today is the last day to enter! Head inside to check out Carter’s AMAZING collection!

One of the skeleton arms that attacked Ash in the graveyard scene in Army Of Darkness. This one I have appears to be used three times in the scene. It is the one that first pulls his lip, then pulls his nose, then one of the multiple ones that punch him in the face all at once during one scene.

Three Deadite helmets used by the costume deadite actors in the end battle scene in Army Of Darkness.

A full Deadite head that was used on top of one of the deadite rod puppets.

A Deadite mask worn by of the costume deadite actors.

Three miniature tombstones that was used on the miniature cemetery set in Army Of Darkness.

Two pieces of brick from the chimney and two pieces of metal from the roof of the first Evil Dead cabin.

Ian Abercrombie’s broach that he worse as the ‘Wiseman’ in Army Of Darkness.

    That is truly impressive. I am jealous.

  • Marrow

    How did he GET this stuff?!
    Crazy…

  • Scorpionsy

    Wow…much respect for you Dennis! You are one HARDCORE Evil Dead fan. That is an awesome collection of real movie props.

    That must have been not easy to collect.

    Also, did you go to the original shooting location to get the 2 bricks and piece of metal from the original Evil Dead cabin that burnt down? That place is full of wild grown bushes and trees now…the only thing left was the chimney from the Cabin. Pretty cool though! :)

  • Scorpionsy

    My favorite props are:

    1- The Skull Dagger…that is sweet!

    2- The actual 2 film celluloid stills (framed) from the original Evil Dead…that is AMAZING!

    3- The replica Book of the Dead (the 2 different ones)

    4- The mini-statue of Evil Ed with Henrietta in the cellar (with half-face Evil Ed on that pin in the background)…very cool.

    5- Ash’s Evil Possessed Hand prop (that is RARE…one of a kind).

    6- Last but not least Cheryl’s replica bust…even though it is not accurate to the movie…very recognizable.

    Great collection again, Dennis! :)
