Join Us - Minimalist Evil Dead Poster

I hesitate to post twice about minimalist design back to back out of the fear of redundancy, but on the other hand, what do I care?

With that said, and as mentioned in my last post, I am a fan of minimalism. In order to jump right on the bandwagon of the mass of minimalist movie posters bombarding the internet, I made one of my own. (This piece is a bit older, so if you have seen it already, just deal with it)
For those of you who don’t know (get with it will ya?), the Evil Dead trilogy is something that I obsess over. A LOT. This poster is my tribute to the infamous “flinch-worthy” scene in the first Evil Dead where demon-possessed Cheryl grabs a sharpened pencil and just stabs the crap out of Linda’s ankle. It’s pretty brutal. (also, pretty awesome)

Well, it’s probably better if you just watch it:

See! Wasn’t that awesome?

Anyway, here is my minimalist movie poster for the Evil Dead.

This piece was featured (sans paper texture) on the amazing blog Evil Dead News on Friday, October 22nd, 2010.



  1. Happen to be a fan of minimalism myself & am currently waiting to get my hands on photoshop to create some of my own posters for my blog. I must say that the Evil Dead poster is great! Keep 'em comin'.

  2. Can I have permission to use this image in FB? I'm going to be playing Cheryl in a local production soon...
