Evil Dead Heads to WonderCon and First Clip

Planning on taking a trip to Anaheim, California later this month for Wonder Con? (It’s sort of like Comic Con, only more wonderful-er.) Then you might be able to make the “Evil Dead” (reboot) panel, which will feature original star/producer Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert, along with the film’s director Fede Alvarez. The movie recently played to great success at SXSW, so I suspect it’ll do equally well at the fest.

Check out an announcement promo for the movie’s Wonder Con appearance and what I believe is a new TV spot. Or new-ish, anyway. Also, the first clip from the movie was recently shown on CBS. Somewhere on CBS, I dunno where, though.

In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

“Evil Dead” stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, Elizabeth Blackmore, and scares the daylights out of audiences this April 5th.
