Come for an evening diving into a horror classic – Sam Rami's 1981 The Evil Dead. After the film screening, there will be a talk back with Costume Designer and Fashion historian Jolene Marie Richardson and Writer/Director/Film Historian Marcus Slabine. The discussion will go into the history of the film and an analysis of how and why it was made.

THE EVIL DEAD

Ashley "Ash" Williams (Bruce Campbell), his girlfriend, and three pals hike into the woods to a cabin for a fun night away. There they find an old book, the Necronomicon, whose text reawakens the dead when it's read aloud. The friends inadvertently release a flood of evil and must fight for their lives or become one of the evil dead. Ash watches his friends become possessed, and must make a difficult decision before daybreak to save his own life in this, the first of Sam Raimi's trilogy. (US, 1981, 85min., English, NC-17 | Dir. Sam Raimi)
