Evil Dead? There's An App For That

The 30-year-old Evil Dead series is coming to the iPhone and iPad as an "action-heavy 3D shooter" in the coming weeks, a chance to play with the boomstick-wielding, chainsaw-handed Ash on your iOS device and hopefully enjoy a not-terrible Evil Dead game.


The Evil Dead app is being made with the blessing of director Sam Raimi, writes The Hollywood Reporter, and will sell for $2.99 for the iPhone and $4.99 for the iPad. Expect lots of evil dead shooting over the course of 30 chapters and, presumably, many dropped catch phrases.

The game is being developed by Trigger Apps, makers of many a movie-based iPhone and Android game. They've churned out mobile ware for flicks like The Karate Kid, Green Hornet, G.I. Joe and... uh, Couples Retreat.


Let's hope they do right by Evil Dead.

While this could easily turn out to be crap, and the first two Evil Dead games were pure unadulterated garbage - Evil Dead: Regeneration is a very fun 3rd person action/shooter game that's well made and gets the action, horror and comedy beats of the Evil Dead series right.

I'll always be glad that that one exists even if this and the older entries are worthless.
