"Collaborating with THQ on the development of ’Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick’ has been a great experience," said Bruce Campbell. "The ’Evil Dead’ universe translates perfectly to a compelling interactive experience so fans can look forward to destroying hordes of Deadites on their PlayStation 2 and Xbox." "’Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick’ will continue the storyline of the classic ’Evil Dead’ trilogy while offering non-stop action complete with Ash’s signature humor," said Michael Rubinelli, vice president of product development, THQ.
