SXSW 2013: Evil Dead to Embark on a 29-City Screening Tour March 11-28

Ghost House Pictures is producing the much anticipated remake of The Evil Dead, the film that effectively launched the careers of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise, Darkman, Drag Me to Hell), Rob Tapert (30 Days of Night), and Bruce Campbell, who played the Ash character and was co-producer of the original. They are now back to produce an Evil Dead for today’s audience that’s high on the horror, gore, plot twists, and more from a screenplay written by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues with Diablo Cody. Executive producers are J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane, Joseph Drake, and Peter Schlessel.

The Evil Dead has been rated R for “strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language. Look for it in theatres on April 5th, 2013.

Synopsis
In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

  1. Seems really lame that they aren’t screening anywhere in Michigan. I would think East Lansing would be a no brainer since that is where everything originated? Bummer.

  2. Hallelujah! Got our tickets to the La Jolla show this coming Thursday night. Super stoked we get to see it so early – can’t wait.
