Head2Head Pinball Podcast Talks Evil Dead
Our friends on the Head2Head Pinball Podcast talked about the Evil Dead licensing issues recently:
It has started coming out recently, some talk about Evil Dead and that Spooky wanted to do Evil Dead…Ben Heck has come in speculating on what it could possibly look like…but I can tell you, the problem they had was licensing. It was one person in particular that was just going to cost way too much.
Check out the full episode here! And also a huge welcome to Joe Lemire, the new co-host on Head2Head Pinball! (I think we need to get his face photoshopped onto the logo?? 🙂 )
