I find Mike Baronas to be an inventive and dedicated man. And in fact when I heard whispers of this idea from him, I was only jealous that I hadn’t thought of it first. Two shirts, each representing two equal but decisive camps; a team for Dario Argento and one for Lucio Fulci.
Team Argento vs Team Fulci is an idea that Mike Baronas has been mulling around for years. And he’d be someone on the forefront of that battle. He is the man behind Paura Productions, who focuses on bringing stars of Italian Horror cinema to conventions and events. In addition he is the man who made the documentary, Paura: Lucio Fulci Remembered. You can find out more about it and experience an interview with the man himself here.
The premise behind these two shirts is quite simple; most fans of Italian Horror cinema find themselves to be fans of both of the legendary directors. Just as all of the hopeless Twi-hards find themselves loving both but on opposite sides of the tear-filled ocean with their love for two Teams of those who shall not be named.
The shirts were envisioned by Baronas and designed by Jill of LixOnline (ie. that beautiful blond who is always hula hooping at Horror Cons). Pre-Orders have begun at the Paura Productions website, and will be shipped August 11 or sooner! Plus they will be available at Conventions near you. I would assume at the LixOnline table as well as any spot where you find Paura clients!
