Any Evil Dead news is good news in my opinion. South by Southwest Film Conference has just confirmed that they will host the world premiere of Evil Dead — officially making SXSW the place to be on March 8th through the 17th. They will be celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, and oh boy, what a celebration it will be. While there is no specific time and date yet for the screening, you can expect it to be announced very soon.
To those of you lucky enough to make a trip down to SXSW this year for the Evil Dead screening, I just want you to know a couple of things. I hate you, and also, I hate you. A screening at this year’s Austin based festival is a huge move for Evil Dead because it shows major confidence in the film. Not only that, but after its premiere you can expect the reviews to spread like wild fire creating the official buzz for the hotly anticipated remake, and I think we are going to like what we hear.
