Evil Dead 2′ is one of my favorite horror films and now it’s a game! I’m so excited for this! In case you missed it, Bloody-Disgusting reported a few weeks back that Space Goats Productions were in the process of creating a board game based on the sequel [Evil Dead 2], but now news surfaced that the game is fully funded!


From the campaign:

The officially licensed Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience Evil Dead 2 fans have been dying for–featuring at least 8 custom figures with art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the cult classic film. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.

When playing the game you could play as your favorite characters from the sequel [yes..even the a-hole Jake] as you search the iconic cabin in the woods for the lost pages of the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis …piece of cake! Oh wait also while fighting against each players deadite-self and Ash’s severed hand!

And that’s all just part of the Standard Dead By Dawn edition. The deluxe edition is currently in the works but is said to feature new miniatures, including a Ex-Mortis game box, Combat Ash figure and a GooseNeck Henrietta miniature.

From what I see and from I read, I’m pretty pleased with the making of this game. It seems like a labor of love from the folks over at Space Goat and all I can say is it looks..groovy. What’s cool about it is, this isn’t Space Goats’ first time visiting the franchise’s sequel. Space Goats’ is currently publishing their critically-acclaimed comic Evil Dead 2 which I just can’t wait to get my hands on!

Evil Dead 2′ starred Bruce Campbell as did the rest of the Evil Dead Franchise (except the remake) including the hit STARZ Channel TV Series Ash VS Evil Dead which is airing its season 2 this Halloween season. Campbell in current years runs his very own film festival dubbed [so cleverly] Bruce Campbell’s Film Horror Festival, the festival has run so far for two years and counting.
