It has just been announced that the South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival will host the world premiere of Evil Dead. A specific date and time for the screening has not yet been revealed, but SXSW takes place from March 8th – 17th, so it will obviously screen during that time frame.

SXSW is held in Austin, Texas and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Although their website is currently down due to a traffic spike from visitors putting together their film schedules, you can learn more at: http://sxsw.com/

Everyone not attending SXSW will be able to see Evil Dead when it is released to theaters on April 12th. The movie was directed by Fede Alvarez and sees a new cast of characters discovering the Book of the Dead:
