Grindhouse Releasing reports success with its ongoing North American tour featuring
Sam Raimi's EVIL DEAD. The horror classic will screen April 3 at the Alamo Drafthouse in WInchester, Va., and April 10 at the Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes in San Antonio, Tx.,
on a triple bill with EVIL DEAD 2 and ARMY OF DARKNESS.
"EVIL DEAD is a movie that will never die," said David Szulkin, head of theatrical bookings for Grindhouse Releasing. "Thanks to Landmark Theatres, the Alamo Drafthouse, and other exhibitors, we've been able to bring the movie back to the fans who love it. Recent screenings of EVIL DEAD at the Nu Art Theatre in Los Angeles, the Alamo in North Austin, and other venues were sold out completely. The movie will continue to play through the end of 2010."
Grindhouse Releasing has created a new full-color movie poster for the theatrical reissue of the
1981 horror classic. Designed by Tad Leger, the collectible one-sheet features rare photos from
the original EVIL DEAD movie poster shoot by Mike Ditz.

“Nothing can prepare an audience for what they are about to see, because nothing punishes an audience like EVIL DEAD -- especially on the big screen,”
says Bruce Campbell. “I’m really glad it’s back. People are gonna be hurt.”
Endorsed by Raimi, producer Rob Tapert, and star/co-producer Bruce Campbell,
Grindhouse Releasing's reissue of EVIL DEAD will hit theaters across North America
in the coming year.
“We've had tremendous response to our announcement that EVIL DEAD has returned,”
says David Szulkin, head of theatrical bookings for Grindhouse Releasing.
“We want to show it in as many cities as we can, and encourage fans to contact us
and petition their local theater to screen the movie.”
