Rated 1 out of 5 by Canabrasileiro An absolute disgust! Walked out... along with several others!!!
This is the only Vegas show or stage production for that matter that I've ever walked out of. And I wasn't the only one to walk out that night! When I walked out, the sympathizing look on the theater attendant's face said it all: people walking out is a common thing with this show.
I loved the movies, and yet this show was an absolute disgust. I sincerely wonder if anyone giving this garbage 5 stars is actually human, or a brain-dead zombie.
If you're a brain-dead zombie, go see it. You might enjoy it even though there will be zero brain for you to enjoy in this brainless production.
If you're a human being... well, you've been warned!!!

by Kelzy44 Good Friday? GREAT Friday!
My boyfriend and I love the Evil Dead movies, and I have the musical's soundtrack, but we had never seen the musical. We were lucky enough to find a sale on the VIP seats, and went on Good Friday during spring break.
The preshow was great, with all the zombie/deadites interacting, making stupid puns, and being genuinely hilarious. Or VIP seats were in the first row behind the Splatter Zone, in a very intimate little theater. The warnings were projected, including their uses of strobe lights, fog machines, profanity, bad puns, and tons of fake blood. After the obligatory "no cell phones/ no cameras" spiel (which was hysterical), the show began.
At first I wasn't entirely sold on the guy playing Ash, as he seemed a little stiff. However, as the show wore on, he loosened up and was an excellent physical comedian. The other characters were well-cast, but Linda and Cheryl's microphones kept cutting out. The Deadite masks were actually a very clever way to deal with the sometimes quick conversion back and forth to the dark side. We were laughing so hard!
Then at intermission, some of the characters came out and there was a lot of fake blood for the splatter zone. And I mean a lot! But it was all in good fun, and absolutely hilarious.
The second act continued with its awesomeness, including some great jokes about Las Vegas and an inspired Good Friday joke (one character's ghost appeared in the form of Jesus, after which Ash quipped, "Don't worry, he'll be back in three days anyway!"). The show ended with a reprise of the big dance number, Do the Necronomicon, so we could dance along, and an invitation to get our photos taken with the cast in the S-Mart (Shop smart! Shop S-Mart!). The cast was very sweet, and my face hurt from smiling. Well, well worth it, but next time we will definitely spring for seats in the splatter zone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by guidolupe Nice intimate theater to get covered in blood!
This was a highlight of our Vegas trip. Get seats in the splatter zone as it is the best way to see the show. If you are a fan of horror movies, this play will delight you with lots of music, humour and laughs! I tell all my friends that come to Vegas to catch this show!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Loki17 Save your money
you are better off gambling. I don't care how big a fan you are of Evil Dead or Bruce Camble, this show was awful. A high school production has better effects. I fell asleep during the show and it was painfully long. I should have left during the show and asked for my money back. Not sure how this. Is a Vegas show. The V theater is a joke.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Davey85338 Not good!
cheesy. My wife fell asleep - boring and made little sense. Actors tried very hard but the story line was awful. We wound up leaving (along with about 4 other couples, who we didn't know) because it was just so terrible. Wasted my $80.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JEN4 Funny Entertaining Show
We had VIP seats which were 2 rows back from the "Splash Zone". This was great. We got to be very close to all the action, but not get soaking wet.
The actors were great, interacting with the crowd.
Very entertaining! We would definitely see this show again the next time we visit Vegas!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daasinko Excellent value
The musical stays true to the evil dead movies incorporating parts from 1 and 2 mainly with a little of 3. The actors were all really good and the Ash character was dead on for the Bruce Campell impersonation mannerisms. When he shouted "This is my Boomstick" the place went up for grabs. Highly recommended but remember it is gory and the language can be pretty vulgar (that was okay by me but might be too much for younger audience members)
