This hilarious live stage show based on the cult series of Evil Dead films has all the campy fun of the movies and the added bonus of being set to music. This mashup of all three films tells the story of five college students who go to an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleash evil forces that turn them all into demons. This is a 4D experience, which means the front seats are the designated "Splatter Zone" and the name is not just for show. Even though general admission tickets are outside the zone, the guts and gore will be flying unpredictably, so keep that in mind when choosing your attire. The wild and gory theatrical experience comes to The Bug Theatre in Denver.
