December 1, 2009 Back in 1999, Grindhouse Releasing put out what was then the rarely seen Lucio Fulci's "The Beyond" in midnight screenings across the country. It was the first time that film had ever been seen uncut in the U.S. Now, 10 years later, Grindhouse is presenting the oft-seen "Evil Dead" in midnight screenings. Given the film's huge cult following -- which has inspired musical stage versions -- it sounds like a good financial decision.
Although it would have been nice if they had released something you can't rent on DVD. But oh well.
Here are release locations and dates, along with the poster (above):
January 8-9: Uptown Theatre, Minneapolis
January 15-16: Esquire Theatre, Denver
January 29-30: Sunshine Cinema, New York
February 5-6: Egyptian Theatre, Seattle
February 19-20: River Oaks Theatre, Houston
February 26-27: Inwood, Dallas
March 5: Nuart Theatre, Los Angeles
May 22: Hudson Horrorshow Poughkipsie, NY
