Yes folks, I’m not making this up.  There is an Evil Dead: The Musical.  It’s true – here’s the official site.

The coolest part is?  It’s coming to my area, Norfolk, Virginia!

Evil Dead: The Musical unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, “camp”; takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like “All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons”, “Look Who’s Evil Now” and “Do the Necronomicon”. Buzzing chainsaws and dancing demons add to the frenzy, slaying audiences with a tale of lust, love and dismemberment.
