To celebrate the upcoming release of Evil Dead, the much-anticipated re-imagining of the cult horror classic, Complex took over Austin's Illmore Mansion during SXSW last Friday for a one-of-a-kind experience. The evening featured appearances and performances by such notable talents as A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs, A$AP Yams, and Aston Matthews. With over 1500 guests on hand, and droves of roaming "Deadites" to haunt the festivities, the event had all others at the festival running for their lives (literally).

To get a peak at all the evilness that went down, check out the gallery. Evil Dead—the most terrifying film you will ever experience—hits theaters on April 5th, but you can watch the trailer for it here now.
