Evil Dead The Musical is not a new thing. It’s been a long running show way-off-Broadway. Like Toronto way-off-Broadway. My first response when I read about adapting this into a movie was that it would be lame. But I guess there’s always a possibility that they could do something sort of novel with it.
Here’s a video of one of the songs from the musical.
Man. Plays annoy the ever-loving shit out of me. All anyone who adapts a story into musical theatre is doing is just taking a gigantic dump on whatever the story is, making it a thousand times more irritating, and telling the writer to go fuck themselves. I always figured that the only people who really enjoy them are the people that act in them. And dudes that like to be peed on by other dudes.
But again, there’s a small chance they could make this one ok for the big screen. It might be kind of funny to see something like a more light-hearted Sweeny Todd with shit loads of gore, and of course, Bruce Campbell. I’ve already got a screen grab.
Screen Daily has the blood and guts.
