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:

Amazon:

Add Juliet to your pinup collection and pop cherries with Rockabilly!

Best Buy:

Head bang with the Goth Girl outfit.

Step into the Funk with Juliet’s golden Foxy Funk outfit.

GameStop:

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.

    When she was blonde, Lollipop Chainsaw lost some of my interest - But now that I can run around as Ash's female (clone?) counterpart, I'm stoked for this Hack 'n Slash! Hail to the king, baby!

    Not only is the Evil Dead outfit awesome.... But now I can play it while my parents are in the house!

    I thought the one with the rose in her hair was supposed to be Katy Perry

    i don't get the excitment over this game all i see is a bunch of cliches which will probably be paired with suda 51 trademark poor gameplay

    OG Evil Dead was the only good one.

    Sorry, other retailers, Gamestop wins this round.

    @Slimjim441 I could totally go for a new Splatterhouse. I guess I'll be preordering from Gamestop for that sweet ass Ash skin!!

    Best Buy, you tempt me with Foxxy Cleopatra, but Gamestop wins yet again with Ash. Funny, this game looks more promising than MGR:Revengeance. Speaking of chainsaws and hack n slash, anyone else want a new Splatterhouse, or is that just me?

    Disturbingly hot.
  • Redeater - February 2, 2012 2:35 p.m.

    Am I the only one who thought that rockabilly outfit was supposed to be the black dahlia?.......creepy.

    I'm a fan of the Gold Funk and Ash costumes. If I decide to get the game and they go on sale, may pick one up.
