My name is Mike Pasquale, owner of EvilDeadWorkshed.comEvilDeadWorkshed.com is the new home of the Evil Dead 2 Workshed and Cabin Exhibit. I am trying to make this exhibit mobile and with 2 Comic Cons already booking me, i am well on my way. But its all out of my own pocket.

I am an Evil Dead II prop builder. I replicate the Chainsaws and the famous wall clock seen throughout the Evil Dead movies. I recently rescued many items from the original filming location of Evil Dead 2 from its shallow grave in Wadesboro North Carolina. A full list of recovered items can be seen at www.EvilDeadWorkshed.com

The most prized item that I recovered was the entire Workshed from Evil Dead II. Those of you familiar with the series, the Workshed itself is where Ash’s Chainsaw and main persona were born. I fully funded the project out of pocket along with one donation from a past customer. When I returned home with the Workshed and cabin artifacts, my story went viral throughout the Evil Dead Community. Prior to returning home with these items, I decided to share them with the rest of the fans so that they can see the artifacts up close and personal. I plan on travelling to comic cons across the county to show off all of these items, including the fully assembled Work shed. The Work shed and its means of transportation are my main reasons I am trying to raise money.

I have begun assembling a metal canopy frame to resurrect the Work shed and will re wrap that metal frame with the original wood and tin roofing from the Work shed itself, allowing fans to see the real deal, up close and personal for the first time ever. The funds that I raise are going toward transportation of the Work shed, which will require me to purchase a 16ft enclosed trailer, and the steel tubing required to complete the Work shed framing. The Work shed, along with all of the items seen on my website will be taken to comic cons all over, including other cabin items that have not yet been revealed. That secret is yet to come!!!

I am not making money off of the exhibit and I’m not trying to. Any funds that I receive during the exhibitions will come from a Chainsaw raffle and an Evil Dead Clock raffle. I can’t do this on my own. I work 2 jobs, have a wife and child who are ready to kill me over Evil Dead. I will need the help from the Evil Dead Community to make this project possible. I already have 2 Comic Cons booked and am in a rush to complete the Workshed exhibit. Thank you in advance for your help!!

The reason why I have a kickstarter to buy a trailer. This is about 20% of the exhibit and I obviously cannot fit the disassembled workshed frame or exterior wood along woth all of this

Risks and challenges

Risks involved are minor. I’ve always said when I’m going to do something I’m going to do it. If I was able to successfully pull all of these artifacts out of the woods without getting killed, (which I’ve already done), I can get it to the comic cons easily. The danger zone is already behind me. With the funds available, I can fully get this show on the road where it belongs, not rotting away in the woods where it faced devastation and destruction.
