Nope. The clown masks are an homage to Cesar Romero's Joker from the TV show.

This thread reminds me of movie critics who use the terms "payed homage to" and "ripped off." It made me wonder where the line is drawn.

I was watching The Outlaw Josey Wales earlier today, and I was watching the scene at the beginning of the movie where Josey is burying his child. I got to thinking, the burial scene in the Evil Dead movies looks very similar. I was kind of curious to know if there was any connection there. I tried searching on Google but didn't come up with any results.
