SF’s own Primitive Screwheads theater company is well known for the blood, gore, and laughs they’ve brought to stages all over the city. They just might have topped themselves this weekend, with the debut of their new show “ShEvil Dead,” an all-lady production mocking both the Evil Dead movies and Army of Darkness.

Aside from the obvious draw of an all-female cast, ShEvil Dead includes all the blood that’s fit to spill, meaning you’re gonna get wet and red. “Unlike other theater companies with blood shows, we do not charge extra for sitting in a blood section,” they warn. “Everyone will be covered in blood… although there will be a small Dry Seats Section.”

A limited number of discounted, $10 tickets will be available on Goldstar, but if you miss out on those, you can still get regular priced (just $20!) tickets through Buying them at the door will cost you $25, and since shows sell out quickly, buying in advance is recommended.

Can’t make it to opening night? The Primitive Screwheads will be performing every Friday and Saturday in October at 8pm, with October 29th’s performance including a costume contest. Dressing up is, of course, always encouraged.
