Why are cobwebs all over the corner store? This wine better not be that old. What is with all this orange and black? No one is celebrating the Giants. And why are all horror films just a little more…horrifying? You know why. Halloween is here! Almost.
And we’re here to raise the hairs on the back of your neck with a few cold beers during our next DRINK-A-LONG to the indie cult classic THE EVIL DEAD. Thursday October 6th!
We’re taking horror to the next level by making it a DOUBLE FEATURE: The Evil Dead and EVIL DEAD 2 Costume Party. Wow! We’re kind of scaring ourselves right now. Scared of how incapacitated you’ll be at the end of it.
Marking the 30th anniversary of its release, we’re resurrecting The Evil Dead to witness Sam Raimi make movie magic (and history) with a scary small budget, THEN compare it to the Hollywood budget he had for Evil Dead 2. The basics are the same: a creepy cabin in the woods, some book and audio recording conjuring evil spirits from beyond, and this dude Ash running around in the woods dismembering people possessed by demons. If that doesn’t raise goosebumps on your arms, then you’re probably the evil dead too.
- A human gets possessed by an evil spirit: DRINK!
- Someone suggests going out on their own (or something equally stupid): Yell NOOO! Then DRINK!
- A milky white substance excretes from someone’s face: CHEERS and DRINK!
- You’re a little scared: LAUGH and DRINK! It’ll help. Trust us.
And get your most blood-curdling scream ready, because during intermission, we’ll have a screaming contest! The best, loudest, most terrifying scream gets a spooky surprise! And the winning doesn’t stop there. Come dressed as an evil dead flesh-possessing demon zombie and get a free raffle ticket! (Raffle tickets lead to amazing prizes, as usual.)
