"Evil Dead", Diesel Playhouse, Toronto, ON

Gord and I saw Evil Dead tonight.

While the title may convey horror - fans, critics and audiences alike are calling it an uproariously funny musical comedy. Based on Sam Raimi’s 80s cult-classic horror films, EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, “camp” takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like “All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons,” “Look Who’s Evil Now” and “Do the Necronomicon.”

This play was freakin' hilarious! If you get a chance to go see it, you should.

We were in the second row, in the middle ... the "splatter zone". I got splattered from the waist down.

Gord, on the other hand, REALLY got splattered!

You can imagine the looks he got when we caught the streetcar home! Ha! "Dude, what happened to you?!"

Here's a taste (warning bad language):

Update: It did wash out and Gord's shirt is white again.
