This awesome t-shirt was printed by Blue Grape Merchandise in the early 2000s, and it features amazing double-sided graphics paying tribute to one of the most iconic horror films to emerge out of the 1980s. This shirt pays tribute to Sam Raimi's cult classic masterpiece The Evil Dead, and the front features the film's star, B-movie legend Bruce Campbell holding a chainsaw, while the back includes the tagline "The ultimate experience in grueling terror".

Raimi and Campbell grew up together as childhood friends, who passed the time by shooting their own low budget movies together on Super 8 film. The budget for The Evil Dead was a simple $375,000 but the movie wound up becoming one of the most celebrated cult films in the history of cinema. Part of what made The Evil Dead such a classic, was its gore and grit. The film was shot in an actual abandoned cabin, and there were several days in which Campbell rode home in the back of a pickup truck because he was drenched from head to toe in fake blood. The movie utilized interesting and innovative POV shots, some of which were achieved by mounting the camera onto a 2x4 while Raimi and Campbell ran along, holding either side. 

In the end, the movie launched the careers of both Raimi and Campbell, as well as the film's producer Robert Tapert, who met the pair after befriending Raimi's brother, Ivan. The movie has also evolved over the years into a successful franchise that includes multiple sequels and a television series. Campbell's character, Ashley "Ash" J. Williams has since grown to be a favored icon among horror fans, and aside from deadites, Ash has been depicted facing off against a number of other horror icons such as Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Herbert West.
