Per press release, "You and your fellow paranormal investigators have been sent on a mission to the Knowby Cabin, which has materialized within the walls of the Archaeological Society. With Ash Williams guiding you, you will have to find a way to return the evil dead to their realm and escape before the cabin is sucked into the time-space vortex forever."

It adds, "In this adventure, you’ll be given the identity of a member of the paranormal group 'Gnostic Research of the Occult, Omens, Vampires, and Yetis' aka G.R.O.O.V.Y."

While the concept of being trapped in a cabin in the woods has become a staple of horror-themed escape rooms, the official Evil Dead 2 room will offer fans a unique experience.

"We're trying to embody Evil Dead films because we're allowed to, but a lot of other escape rooms are merely inspired by the movies," Seth Wolfson, Creative Director and Game Designer, previously shared with "They're like, 'Oh, this is kind of Evil Dead-ish.' And then they want to mix in all these other genres. And it's fine. And some of them are really, really great. I don't want to sound like I'm putting them down. But ours is not just an homage to Evil Dead. We are trying to give an Evil Dead 2 experience and let the players actually be part of it. Like, the fans will get their taste of what they want and the non-fans or people who have never seen it will be like, 'Oh, that was fun. Maybe I'm going to go check out this movie,' and they're going to have a good time."
