“The Littlest Deadite” : a Children’s Story based on ‘Evil Dead II’

Like many horror fans, artist Sean Hughes is a big fan of the Evil Dead film series. Like all of us, he no doubt probably believes that these movies are highly entertaining, with some of them offering a few scares and definitely a damn near endless supply of blood and gore in order to satisfy even the hardened horror fan.

But what about the people that want to share those kinds of experiences with their younger children or siblings? I’m not talking about 9 or 10 year olds, but even younger: The ones that you are still tucking into bed, who are barely out of their strollers; the ones that you plan to read a bedtime story to every night. Well luckily for us, that’s where Hughes comes to the rescue, with his latest story, which he calls: The Littlest Deadite.

Although technically not available in book-form, [which if it was, I’d be all over the idea of buying a copy!] Hughes has put together his own take on Evil Dead II by drawing and creating an almost “child friendly” version of the movie’s plot, giving it an adorable – yet still faithful to the original story – creepy twist to what we could have expected if Evil Dead was rated G.

Although you can’t expect to find Ed [above] or even Ash in The Littlest Deadite, it features a new, unnamed Deadite who wants to find himself a soul to swallow, and his wandering adventures as he tries to find one. There’s definite throwbacks to Evil Dead which include the Oldsmobile, the [infamous] tree, and cabin from the film.

Now I know what you’re thinking: if this isn’t a book, [yet?] how am I supposed to read it? Luckily for you, I have you covered. Hughes actually posted the entire story online for free on his blog and it’s pretty damn exciting. I feel that there should even be a Kickstarter for it to become a book – in which case I’d buy it in a heart beat. However, for now, we have to deal with it being only an online ‘picture book’ of sorts. But, in order to save you the wall of pictures – ten in total – I found an album on Imgur which has all of them, in order for your reading convenience. I promise, it’s totally cute, and totally worth your time. [read The Littlest Deadite here]

yet another Deadite you shouldn’t expect to see in the story..

So now I look to you: what do you think of The Littlest Deadite? Is it the greatest ‘fan art’ you’ve seen in a long time? Or do you think Evil Dead should be left to the adult, horror fans? Let me know in a comment or two what you think.

REAL HORROR: the dentist who creates mutations! [somewhat NSFW]

Ever wanted to make you own monster? Imagine: you could choose it’s number of eyes and/or it’s skin tone; it could literally be your monster. Now, let’s meet Morgan Loebel, a dentist technician from Kansas turned ‘Mutant Maker’. Morgan makes his very own creatures, monsters and mutated masterpieces out of polymer clay, and I must say.. they’re horrifyingly disgusting! [yet, I love the realism] Apparently this guy’s work is nothing new to some, but I’ve only just stumbled upon it and I’m shocked at the details!

After spending over 20 years making thousands of false teeth through his work as a dental lab technician, Loebel seems to have found his true calling after starting to use Polymer Clay back in 2012. Good thing too, because these monsters are probably the most life-like I’ve ever seen.. He claims that spending his days ‘fabricating realistic, detailed crowns, bridges and other dental prosthesis’ played a key role in his ‘progression from dental tech to mutant maker.’ He now makes anything from phone cases, to necklaces [with suspended teeth] to Necronomicon art; and for those curious – I will be posting pictures of some of his work at the end of this post. They’re even available for purchase on His Etsy page, where you can find one of a kind collectables ranging from hand sculpted polymer clay items to original artwork! According to his Etsy page, he’s been asked the same question since the beginning, which he answers with: “yes..all realistic eyes and teeth that are used in my works are handmade and you cannot get them anywhere else but here.” His work takes several weeks to complete, but the end result is staggering. It’s truly unique.

Take a look at the picture above, Morgan made this for a robot art contest online and even claims that he may be putting it up for sale soon! Though, like many of the comments on the photo agree; I feel he should keep it, as a personal trophy of his accomplishments thus far! According to the description of the picture, he always thought nano technology was interesting, With his idea for the ‘robot art’ contest began as a frightening article he had read a couple years ago on how these nanobots could be weaponized! So naturally, this is what he came up with, and I have to say; it’s creepy – but probably how things would turn out!!


Now I know you guys have been patient with my incessant praising of the art, and the explanations, so I’ll give you what you’ve been waiting for: the pictures. shall we begin with a phone case? remember, all the eyes/teeth on these “pieces of art” are fake, regardless of how real they seem to look! [somewhat NSFW]


It’s just mind numbing to realize that the teeth, the eyes, and even the saliva is fake. You can tell that Morgan worked with teeth for awhile, because he certainly knows how to add to the realism.. But, let’s say you like your phone case, and you’re not interested in buying one of the above cases; what about a necklace or two? For your loved one[s], of course!


I mean, I can only imagine the look on people’s faces if you walked by wearing one of these around your neck! I’m not entirely a fan of the second necklace [above] but I’m sure there are people that do! The last picture I’ll share [I’ll let his pages do the talking for him!] is a commissioned ‘portrait’ he did for someone.. What I’m saying is, that instead of just the face [like the phone cases] he actually made a portrait statue for someone – and it’s probably [in my opinion] the best one yet. Check it, below!

In closing, Morgan Loebel definitely has a ‘certain kind of fan base’, no doubt especially in the horror scene. The details, and the realism just make his art ‘pop’, which shows us that some people are just great at what they do. And just think, Morgan started as a Dentist Tech.. If you still can’t get enough of his ‘work’, be sure to check out his Etsy page or even his page on Facebook, where he sometimes takes requests from fans!
