"Evil Dead: The Musical" -- created by George Reinblatt, Christopher Bond and Frank Cipolla -- premiered at the 2004 Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal before being chosen to come to New York City, Daily Variety reported.
To capitalize on their musical adaptation of a notoriously gory B-movie, the production's creators have decided to offer 11 p.m. performances on Friday and Saturday nights, both featuring a section of front row seats entitled the "Splatter Zone."
"Miss Saigon's" Hinton Battle is set to choreograph the show and share directorial duties with Bond.
The quirky musical is set to premiere off-Broadway on Oct. 2 and begin performances at New World Stages on Nov. 1, Variety said.
Director Sam Raimi's 1981 feature "The Evil Dead" spawned sequels in 1987 and 1992.
