" . . . and worst of all, the unmentionable Necronomicon of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred, in Olaus Wormius’ forbidden Latin translation; a book which I had never seen, but of which I had heard monstrous things whispered."
-H. P. Lovecraft, The Festival
Bound in human flesh, and containing the very distilled essence of the madly gibbering void betwixt the unforgiving stars, I have crafted in my workshop (with the assistance of a French artist and a failed Republican presidential candidate), the Necronomicon Ex Mortis, the Book of the Dead!
Actually, it's another prop I made for a small theater that's putting on a production of Evil Dead: the Musical, the same folks I built a totally kickass blood spraying chainsaw arm for! I guess they must have liked the early pictures I sent of the saw, 'cause they also asked for a book.
Here's a video of me flipping through that pages, read on to learn all about how I built it, or skip ahead to read about the play it was used in!
Thanks so much to everyone who voted for me in the contest, my chainsaw is a finalist!
