Camp Tamakwa has a very brief cameo in ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ pilot

Canadian summer camp Camp Tamakwa had an ever so brief cameo in the pilot of new Starz TV series Ash vs Evil Dead on Saturday.

Unlike in the first two Evil Dead movies when a t-shirt appears, the series’ first episode shows a Camp Tamakwa sticker in the bottom right corner of the rear window of Ash’s 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88. The quick cameo comes right after a shot that could have easily included a Camp Tamakwa t-shirt – a clothes line with a t-shirt on it that says The Fish Market.

Sam Raimi, who directed the films and helped create the TV series, attended Camp Tamakwa as a kid.
