Be Kind, Grind

Last year Spider-Man director Sam Raimi returned to his roots with the theatrical release of Drag Me to Hell. This weekend, audiences can experience Raimi's original cult horror classic, The Evil Dead, just as it was seen back in 1981 — on the big screen. For the first feature in its new Late Night Grind House series, St. Louis' horror podcast Destroy The Brain! has teamed with Grindhouse Releasing (cofounded by Sylvester Stallone's son Sage) to present a new 35mm print of The Evil Dead for midnight screenings at the Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Avenue) this Friday and Saturday (May 14 and 15). Evil Dead made a star of Bruce Campbell, who would again team with Raimi for two sequels. On the film's re-release, Campbell says, "Nothing punishes an audience like Evil Dead — especially on the big screen. I'm really glad it's back. People are gonna be hurt." Admission is $6, and horror aficionados should bring their thinking skullcaps for a chance to win prizes during the pre-film trivia contest. For more details visit www.destroythebrain.com.
