This is familiar territory for the distributor (who've been dubbed "the Criterion of horror film distribution") as they gave Lucio Fulci's classic film The Beyond the same kind of treatment a few years back.
The company is planning on bringing Evil Dead to the masses beginning early next year through a series of midnight screenings. Each showing will feature a 35MM print of the film.
So far, Twitch has confirmed seven screening locations and dates. Grindhouse promises that there will be more announced soon, so cross your fingers and maybe you'll be lucky enough to get a viewing in your area.
