Witches And Early Dark Art!

One of my regular stops in the Los Angeles area is always Hyaena Gallery located at 1928 W. Olive Ave. in Burbank.

EVIL DEAD II As Retold By Claymation Cats

EVIL DEAD II is my favorite movie of all time. So pretty much anything with the words “evil” and “dead” and “2” in it and I’m sold. So naturally my buddy Josh Obershaw forwarded over this video that’s been floating around the interwebs since the summer of 2012, but which I’m only now discovering. EVIL […]
