A man has been ejected from the Evil Dead Rise premiere after he heckled the cast and shouted ‘this movie f**king sucks’ from a balcony in the cinema.
You can watch him kick off and get shown the door in the clip below:
The heckler targeted the cast during a Q&A event, shortly after the movie premiered at the South By South West (SXSW) film festival.
Although he was rapidly escorted out, footage of the heckler has quickly gone viral after he clashed with veteran actor Bruce Campbell over the highly anticipated horror film.
Based on the same universe as Sam Raimi’s beloved 1980s B movie, Evil Dead Rise will be the fifth film in the Evil Dead universe.
Although Rami has not directed this latest flick, he produced the film alongside original cast member Bruce Campbell – who played Ash Williams throughout the series.
This time the plot moves away from the iconic character and focuses on Beth (Lily Sullivan) as she visits her estranged sister, Ellie (Alyssa Sutherland).
Shortly after arriving at her LA apartment, the pair find a strange book which summons flesh-possessing demons into the building.
Desperate to defend her young nieces and nephews, Beth must fight to save her family in the highly anticipated horror flick.
The film had been planned to follow the fourth series of Ash VS Evil Dead but was stuck in development hell for years, after the Netflix series was cancelled.
Despite fans waiting patiently for the latest instalment, not everyone has been impressed by the final result.
A clip on Twitter showed the enraged former fan having a very public outburst over the film’s quality, with the video rapidly gaining over 47,000 views on the platform.
Slouched over the balcony of the elaborate Paramount Theatre cinema, the unnamed man begins to harass the panel and argue with cinema security.
As he carries on, he points at the screen and yells: “This movie f***ing sucks.”
A staff member can be seen pulling him aside as he has a meltdown, throwing his empty tub of popcorn in the air and flipping off the cast as he walks out.
It’s at this point that Evil Dead actor Bruce Campbell also loses his temper, angrily shouting back: “What are you doing here? Get the f**k out of here.”
The crowd can be heard cheering as the man is removed by security, with executive producer Robert Tapert clearly tickled by the incident.
He struggled not to laugh about the foul-mouthed rant, telling the audience: “I don’t get it. He waited all the way through the credits.”
If you are still keen to make your own mind up about the horror flick, it will hit US cinemas on April 21.
