‘The Evil Dead’ Returns to Cinemas for 40th Anniversary
Writer/director Sam Raimi’s original 1981 horror classic, The Evil Dead, is coming back to cinemas nationwide for its 40th anniversary, just in time for Halloween.
In addition to the movie that spawned a film, TV, and video game franchise, attendees will be treated to an exclusive introduction from Bruce Campbell, who portrayed the film’s iconic lead character Ashley “Ash” Williams.
“We are thrilled to give horror fans the opportunity to gather together and celebrate the 40th anniversary of Sam Raimi’s cult classic The Evil Dead,” said Fathom Events CEO, Ray Nutt.
“Let’s kick off the Halloween season with the film that started an amazing franchise.”
“We are proud to present this special 40th anniversary screening of Evil Dead with Fathom Events,” said Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski.
“The original film has always been my favorite of the series. It is truly one of the scariest and wildest horror films of all time. I’m thrilled that a new generation of fans will have the chance to experience it in the way I first did – on the big screen with a screaming audience!”
The Evil Dead 40th Anniversary comes to movie theaters nationwide on Thurs, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m. (local time).
