Suda51 and the games of Grasshopper Manufacture are so
ridiculously awesome you can't not
love them, and we could say the same about the cult classic Evil Dead/Army of
Darkness films. If only they could come together in some way that involves a
cross-dressing cheerleader. Wait a minute; what's this new Lollipop Chainsaw
trailer have to say?
The English-language publisher for Lollipop Chainsaw
revealed some of the 2012 title’s pre-order bonuses today, and that includes
one that dresses up protagonist Juliet as Ash from Evil Dead 2. Don’t know Evil
Dead 2? Watch one of the greatest moments in cinema history:
Ash’s love for chainsawing things until they’re dead makes
him a perfect role model for Juliet, which is why we’re happily surprised to
see this reference the cult classic. The rest of the costumes each look fine in
their own way, but it’s basically impossible to beat Bruce Campbell’s badass
character. Here, straight from the press release, is a rundown of which
American retailers are offering what:
Add Juliet to your
pinup collection and pop cherries with Rockabilly!
Head bang with the
Goth Girl outfit.
Step into the Funk
with Juliet’s golden Foxy Funk outfit.
Become the original
chainsaw master with the legendary Ash from Evil Dead.
Despite Lollipop Chainsaw being far enough along in development to
offer pre-order bonuses, we still don’t know when exactly it’ll be out this
year. We’ll keep you posted once the real release date is announced.
