What would you say if I said I haven’t seen The Evil Dead,….yet? What does the word “yet” mean to you?
Of course I have seen the movie. Several times. Probably too many to count on one hand (read: six), but I’ve never had a chance to see it on the big screen which is why I’m insanely happy that it’s coming to a theater near me.
According to Killer Film (via Bloody Disgusting), Sam Raimi’s original horror classic is going to be seeing a silver screen revival. Check to see if your town made the list!
Uptown Theatre, Minneapolis
Esquire Theatre, Denver
Sunshine Cinema, New York
Egyptian Theatre, Seattle
River Oaks Theatre, Houston
March 5: Nuart Theatre,
Did it? Did it make the list??
I sincerely hope so, but it looks like I’ll be driving to Houston unless Austin makes the next round of selected cities. That’s right. There’s more.
Since I sadly missed the musical version of this Cabin in the Woods celebration of blood and loud noises, this announcement makes me exceedingly happy to be alive.
I have a feeling that we’re starting to pull ourselves out of the recession everybody. I’m no market analyst (despite a Masters in Economics), but I think that showing a tree raping someone from two decades ago in theaters again was one of Keynes’s benchmarks of a healthy, stable economy.
On a sidenote: Ten cool points to the commenter who will inevitably post, “That High Fidelity reference is wrong. This post is bullshit.”
What do you think? I know! I’m excited, too!
