Most theatres in the country and around the world have been closed since mid-March. Although some theatres are starting to reopen, they have a reduced capacity and are far from back to normal. In recent months, cinema visits have become a paradise for film lovers. New horror films such as The Wretched were successful at the time, but the cinemas are still very successful and present a collection of old classics.
The Evil Dead is Sam Raimey’s first feature film. She focuses on Ash, who drives his girlfriend and three friends to a remote cabin in the woods to spend a night away from home, which should be fun. Once there they come across the Necronomicon, an old book whose text wakes up the dead when they read it. The group unintentionally lets go of the evil in the book and is forced to fight for his life.
The film, produced with the shoe’s budget, was a success and has achieved iconic status over the years. Two sequels were released – Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness – and a remake in 2013. Although the remake actually takes place in the same universe as the original and has been described as a side event. Other dates and locations will appear as soon as they are available. In the meantime, you can view the announcement on the Grindhouse Releasing Facebook page.
