Some prefer Mia's fight with the Abomination under a blood rain downpour. Others like watching Ash shoot at his hand or seeing him take on Deadites in 1300 AD. And there are those who enjoy the discovery of the Naturon Demonto, aka Necronomicon Ex-Mortis, by a group of college students. The Evil Dead 35mm Film Festival in New York aims to please all with showings of every film in the groovy franchise.

Taking place at The Palace Theater in Syracuse on October 24th beginning at 6:00pm, The Evil Dead 35mm Film Festival will include live music, beer, wine, and an auction of a brick from the cabin showcased in 1981's The Evil Dead.
