Upcoming Documentary Shines Spotlight on Evil Dead FX Artist Tom Sullivan

One of the unsung heroes of The Evil Dead is Tom Sullivan, whose contributions to the original franchise are quite frankly as important as Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell's.  Sullivan was a makeup effects artist, animator and designer on Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness, and it is he who was responsible for many of the practical effects and props seen in the movies, including the iconic Book of the Dead.

As reported by Fangoria, Sullivan is the subject of an upcoming documentary called Invaluable: The True Story of an Epic Artist, which digs inside the mind of the man who gave us some of the most horrifying and grotesque visuals in horror history.  Providing unprecedented access to Sullivan's workshop, the Ryan Meade-directed documentary will also be jam packed with never-before-seen interviews with cast and crew members, including Bruce Campbell, as well as tours of the filming locations of all three movies.

Invaluable is currently being screened for distribution, and is set to hit the convention circuit sometime this year, with a DVD release to follow.  Learn more on the Facebook page for the doc, and get a sneak peek with the trailer below!
