Contest: See the Original THE EVIL DEAD Across Canada on Halloween!

The Evil Dead

Happy Halloween, Dorks! Well, we hope it’s happy because your nerves might not be able to take our latest major contest. Enter for a chance to win one of five pairs of passes to a screening of the ORIGINAL Sam Raimi classic, THE EVIL DEAD, on Halloween night at select Cineplex locations in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, or Vancouver, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Front Row Centre Events!

Screening as a part of Cineplex Most Wanted Movies series, 1981’s Evil Dead raised the bar for gory horror cinema, terrifying audiences and creating controversy wherever it played. It established the careers of director Sam Raimi (the Spider-man franchise, Oz the Great and Powerful, Darkman) and its character actor star Bruce Campbell. In it, five twentysomething friends are holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival. For more information and screening locations, check out the Cineplex website for participating theatres in your area!
