The killer remake of the epic horror classic, Evil Dead, drops on Blu-ray™ July 16. In celebration, we thought we’d take a look back at the Illmore Mansion takeover Complex hosted for the film’s theatrical release earlier this year. You can check out highlights of the events, which took place during SXSW, in the video recap below. They included:
-Austin’s iconic Illmore Mansion being totally transformed into a live-action Evil Dead experience. With designs inspired by the film’s production sets and live actors portraying roaming "Deadites," the takeover was a super freaky experience that left visitors trembling with fear.
-Action Bronson’s hilarious visit to the Illmore, which featured some pretty funny run-ins with the house’s resident ghouls.
-The Illmore’s after party, which hosted over 1500 guests, and featured appearances and performances by such notable talents as A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs, A$AP Yams and Aston Matthews.
