The Canadian import "Evil Dead: The Musical" based on the 1980's horror cult classic is demonizing a whole new fan base off-Broadway. Our Clover Lalehzar has the story.
Twenty-five years later, Sam Raimi's horror film "Evil Dead" remains a cult classic. The scenario is rather familiar, involving five college students who venture into the woods to spend a weekend in an isolated cabin. Instead, they unwittingly set off a horrifying chain of events that starts with uncovering a Book of the Dead. The original film and its sequels have a devoted fan base called "Deadites."
