Frankenstein is followed by Evil Dead: The Musical. Based on Sam Raimi's cult movie series, Evil Dead features five singing, dancing college students who stumble onto The Necronomicon, an ancient book filled with witchy spells capable of summoning devilish demons. From there, the musical fun starts as the kids fight for their lives. Tunes such as ''What the F*@k Was That?'' and ''All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons'' are interspersed among ferociously fake and funny fight scenes. Be ready for lots of chainsaw action — and pay attention to where you sit; there’s a ''splatter zone'' where demon blood is likely to bathe audience members.
