Evil Dead The Musical
...a bit different than most Vegas shows!
This was a nice change of pace from the typical shows on the strip - go with the right attitude - and enjoy yourself!

Evil Dead Rocks!
OK, so you should obviously be a fan of the movies to appreciate this show. Although my wife, who is not die hard by any means, fully enjoyed the show while she has seen the movies maybe once.
Word of caution for those thinking about it ... the splatter zone is right up at the stage. You will be right up in the action. By action, I mean the torrential blood bath!! :) In other words, if you are not ready to be fully drenched in faux-blood (ie, sweet smelling colored water), I would stick with VIP (just a couple rows back).
Don't be cheap, get VIP, its worth it as you will be just out of splatter range but still right up front. These guys and gals put on a great rendition of the franchise and was totally enjoyable to watch!
If you are any fan of the trilogy, go see this show! You will not be let down.

Not equal to its Broadway counterpart, and is too expensive for a high school quality show.
This show is poorly produced and directed. The sound quality was horrendous, which I might give as an excuse for the performers singing. But their poorly rehearsed and inconsistent acting quality and stage presence were a pain to watch. I had flash backs of high school performances while watching them. The only things to really enjoy are the fan boy quotes, the one attractive female lead who carried the show, and the montage of internet video during intermission. The jewish garden gnome and MC weren't too bad either.
I wouldn't recommend wasting money on this unless they are comped.

Evil Dead is a wet messy blast. Theater needs heat.

My boyfriend and I just made our second trip to Las Vegas and booked some shows ahead of time. We decided on this show because he is a huge horror film fan; we chose the splatter zone, of course. The actors were amazing, sound was great, funny...AWESOME experience! Although the other shows were entertaining in their own ways, Evil Dead the Musical was my favorite, by far, over Cirque and Blue Man Group. I hope it's still around when we return!!! I would advise a more bold notification that folks cannot wear a poncho and should not wear good clothes if seated in the splatter zone (clothes & shoes ruined from "blood"...but it was worth it).

Description on website stated that show was for 10 year olds and older....before entering the show, a "Zombie" came out for an introduction and said the F word every other word- My husband and I had our 12 yr old son with us. The the guy had everyone take a picture, everyone was supposed to flip off the camera. Completely inappropriate. Needless to say, we did not go into the show and demanded our money back. The staff and supervisor were not very helpful and gave attitude when expressing our concerns. We eventually got our money back but with a lot of going back and forth. I would not recommend this show at all, especially if you are planning to take your children!

Highlight of my trip..
I very much enjoyed this show. It was very entertaining. We were sitting in the VIP splatter Zone which I very much recommend. Prepare to get very wet. I would even bring an extra set of clothes in a plastic bag. The musical was very entertaining and the actors were amusing.
