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.
