(Montreal, October 8th 2015) During the month of October, Hail to the Deadites will release a new teaser every Thursday, at 5pm, Eastern time, leading to the release of a new full-length trailer on October 31st.

The teasers will be released on the Hail to the Deadites website and Facebook page and each release will include new footage.

Hail to the Deadites is a documentary not about the Evil Dead franchise, but about the Deadites, the collectors, cosplayers and sundry obsessives who have kept the franchise alive for over thirty years!

The documentary is the brainchild of Steve Villeneuve, co-founder and co-owner of Digger Films in Montreal, Canada and features the participation of Ted Raimi, Betsy Baker, Theresa Tilly, Ellen Sandweiss, Richard DeManincor, Tom Sullivan ,Dan Hicks ,Kassie Wesley DePaiva, Sarah Berry, Rick Domeier, Bill Moseley and the King himself Bruce Campbell.

The Evil Dead super fans are the reason Ash vs Evil Dead is happening at all, and we at Digger Films can’t think of a better way to celebrate Ash’s return than to share a few glimpses of Hail to the Deadites, a documentary about the fans, by the fans and for the fans of the Evil Dead franchise.

The film is schedule to be released in 2016.


"Inspired by the 1981 classic’s cult following, HAIL TO THE DEADITES is a documentary about the fans of the EVIL DEAD franchise. Through interviews with the cast, crew, collectors, fans, freaks and geeks, HAIL TO THE DEADITES seeks to illuminate the darkest reaches of the EVIL DEAD franchise’s undying and still-growing popularity, a popularity that has spawned four films, a TV series, comic books, figurines, and surpassed even its creator’s wildest dreams.

HAIL TO THE DEADITES puts the spotlight on the fans that cultivated and spread this groovy pop-culture infection! It celebrates those who’ve celebrated the films! So, rev your chainsaws and load your boomsticks, it’s time to give the DEADITES some sugar, baby!"
