Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of EVIL DEAD In St. Louis
A remote cabin in the woods becomes a blood-soaked chamber of horrors when a group of 20-something friends unwittingly awakens an ancient demon in EVIL DEAD, the highly anticipated reboot of Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult-hit horror film The Evil Dead.
In theaters April 5th and featuring a fresh young cast, EVIL DEAD is a bone-chilling film that combines all the raw excitement and gleeful gore of the acclaimed original with a series of shocking new twists.
Mia (Jane Levy), a young woman whose life has been marred by loss and addiction, asks her brother David (Shiloh Fernandez), his girlfriend Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore) and their childhood friends Olivia (Jessica Lucas) and Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci) to join her at the family’s rustic cabin to help her overcome her demons. Once there, she ceremoniously destroys the last of her stash and swears off drugs for good in front of her friends.
Inside, they are shocked to discover that the abandoned cabin has been broken into. The cellar has been transformed into a grotesque altar surrounded by dozens of mummified animals. Eric becomes fascinated with an ancient book he discovers there. In thrall to its mysterious contents, he reads aloud from it, never suspecting the terrifying consequences he is about to unleash.
As Mia’s withdrawals worsen, she begins to unravel and attempts to flee, but is turned back by a frightening vision. At the cabin, her behavior becomes so violent that her friends are forced to restrain her. Trapped by a dangerous storm raging outside, they begin to turn on each other one by one. As the brutality of their attacks increases, David is faced with an unimaginable choice.
EVIL DEAD stars Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”), Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood), Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers), Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker).
Fede Alvarez makes his feature film-directing debut with a screenplay written by Alvarez, and Rodo Sayagues. Producers are Rob Tapert (30 Days of Night), Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise), and Bruce Campbell (who starred in and co-produced the first film).
WAMG invites you to enter to win a pass (good for 2) to the advance screening of EVIL DEAD on April 2nd at 7:00 PM in St. Louis.
Answer the following question:
Bruce Campbell’s story begins in 1979 when, together with his childhood friends Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, he helped to raise $350,000 for a low-budget film called The Evil Dead. Campbell both co-produced and starred in the film. Completed piecemeal over four years, The Evil Dead first gained notoriety in England when it became the bestselling video of 1983, beating out The Shining.
After its appearance at Cannes, where Stephen King dubbed it “the most ferociously original horror film of the year,” New Line Cinema stepped forward to release The Evil Dead in the U.S. It swiftly became seen as a horror classic.
Campbell co-produced and starred in Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness, completing 12 years of work on the Evil Dead cult favorite. Name the rough-and-tumble character he played.
