Marking the 30th anniversary of its release, Cinema Speakeasy is resurrecting The Evil Dead to witness Sam Raimi make movie magic (and history) with a scary small budget, THEN they'll compare it to the Hollywood budget he had for Evil Dead II. The basics are the same: a creepy cabin in the woods, some book and audio recording conjuring evil spirits from beyond, and this dude Ash running around in the woods dismembering people possessed by demons. If that doesn’t raise goosebumps on your arms, then you’re probably the evil dead too.
But that's not all! It's a Drink-Along screening too! Here are the rules:
- A human gets possessed by an evil spirit: DRINK!
- Someone suggests going out on their own (or something equally stupid): Yell NOOO! Then DRINK!
- A milky white substance excretes from someone’s face: CHEERS and DRINK!
- You’re a little scared: LAUGH and DRINK! It’ll help. Trust us.
And get your most blood-curdling scream ready, because during intermission, there will be a screaming contest! The best, loudest, most terrifying scream gets a spooky surprise!
The winning doesn’t stop there; come dressed as an evil dead flesh-possessing demon zombie and get a free raffle ticket! (Raffle tickets lead to amazing prizes, as usual.)
