This past Friday night I finally got to see Evil Dead the Musical! I've always wanted to go but never had the chance. Luckily for me and everyone else, it's showing in Lawton, Fort Sill on select dates/times throughout the month of October at the Trail of Fear. If you're a fan of the Evil Dead franchise you have to go!
It's put on by the Trail of Fear and Lawton Interactive Theater. The cast and crew did an amazing job opening night and I have to say it was everything I'd hoped for and more! I had a blast and will definitely go back again before it wraps up. If you're looking for a blood-soaked, hilariously demented gorefest that combines elements from The Evil Dead and Evil Dead II with signing, dancing, death and dismemberment this musical is for you! I loved every blood-splattered minute of it. Here's my review: 5 out of 5 stars!
If somehow you're unfamiliar with the Evil Dead franchise here's the basics of the story: A group of college kids takes a quick weekend trip to a cabin in the woods. They stumble across an old reel to reel and hit play.
The recording is a translation from the Necronomicon AKA The Book of the Dead. This awakens a dark and ancient evil in the woods and it begins to possess some of them, turning them into Deadites AKA demons. Ashley "Ash" Williams our hero battles the Deadites with his boomstick AKA shotgun and chainsaw to save humanity by vanquishing the evil back to hell. It's wholesome, quality, family entertainment at its finest!
Now just imagine that story done as a musical, yeah it's totally insane! You'll have a great time guaranteed, even if you've never seen the movies before. A BIG THANK YOU to the Trail of Fear and Lawton Interactive Theater for inviting us out, it was a night to remember that's for sure.
