About this project
About the Show
Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. This hilarious live stage show takes all the elements of the cult classic horror films, Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness and combines them into one of the most insanely entertaining theatrical experiences ever created.
Why do we need your support?
Look, this show requires a lot of blood. And gore. And severed limbs. And shotgun wounds. And a talking moose head. This is one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken by No Name Players, and we need your help to pull it off. No Name Players plans to create the terrifying world of Evil Dead with the help of Steve Tolin, an award winning special effects artist.
Your tax-deductible contribution to this project will be used to fund Tolin's Hollywood-caliber splatters, possessions, and dismemberment.
Tolin is the owner of Tolin FX, and some of his most notable credits include work on The Dark Knight Rises, Jack Reacher, Warrior, and Adventureland. Tolin recently produced a feature film It Came from Yesterday, for which he and his team created the creature effects and production design.

Risks and challenges
The only real risk associated with this project is for some of the special effect elements we conceive with Steve Tolin's help to function improperly.
Given the combined experience of No Name Players and Tolin FX, we feel incredibly confident that this risk can be overcome with collaborative adjustments.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
You're right! There is an Evil Dead: The Musical, which is what we're doing. However, the challenge with the show is that it requires some fairly elaborate effects if you want to do it justice.
We're partnering with an award-winning special effects artist, Steve Tolin, to create some incredible film-quality FX for the show. He has some amazing things planned.
