A not so long time ago in a theatre not so far away came a film that rocked the galaxy changing both cinema and schoolyards forever. This film was of course George Lucas’ first installment of Star Wars. Massicotte’s The Boys Own Jedi Handbook masterfully explores the phenomenon through the eyes of an imaginative ten-year old. “The kid” has recently moved to a new town (a whole new galaxy for a ten year old), when a science fiction film sparks a life-changing friendship.

Well… they accidentally unleash an ancient evil force, hell bent on turning them all into demons and then taking over the entire world! It’s up to Ash, a housewares employee at S-Mart, and his chainsaw and boomstick to stop the demons, save the entire planet and whole human race. Based on the cult classic movies Evil Dead and Army of Darkness, Evil Dead is a one of the most hilarious and bloody theatrical experiences ever. And, the music??? Pure awesome evilness…
