While the “Evil Dead” films are considered the definition of cult movies, as a stage show, “Evil Dead: The Musical” has become a cult sensation of its own. The plot involves five college students going into an abandoned cabin in the woods and accidentally unleashing an evil force that turns them all into demons.
