New Red Band Trailer for the Evil Dead Remake is Bloodier, Gorier, Awesomer

Holy shit.

I have to admit, I wasn’t a big ol fan of remaking Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead”, even with Raimi and company all gung-ho about it in the background. Then the first Red Band trailer hit and all I could think was, “Oh, shit.” Now they’ve released a second Red Band trailer, and all I can say is .. “Holy shit.”

Really, I don’t know how they could possibly advertise this movie in any format other than a Red Band trailer. It will be pretty amusing to see them try it, though, which they should be starting pretty soon since the film is scheduled for this April. Until then, catch an eyeful of the overflowing red stuff with another gloriously gory Red Band trailer for the “Evil Dead” remake.

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.

Starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, and Elizabeth Blackmore. I have to admit, that’s a pretty small body count — er, I mean, cast of characters — but it looks like director Fede Alvarez and company makes them count.

Spraying it April 12, 2013.

    Holy shit is right! lol i cant wait for this!!!!!!!!!!

  • Brent McKnight

    I’m with you, Nix. I was so skeptical, but that trailer is fucking awesome. And the best thing about it, just that two minutes is full of legitimately unsettling stuff. If the movie is even a fraction of that, we’re in for something great.

  • Hedrick Curtis

    I may be the minority but I still can’t quite get behind it… perhaps if it was not Evil Dead and it’s own entity. But that’s my opinion.

  • subtitlemeplease

    Still think it will turn out to be a turd.

  • Esfsfs

    Awsome Shit… Hope the Movie will be Uncut in Germany -.-

  • Lexavi80

    Better this movie have a cool twist or something, because, although it looks mighty gory, I’m still thinking in Cabin in the Woods!

    • Seel75

      Cabin in the Woods?? Get outta here.

  • Michael Sloanne

    I will see it ,but I’m a fan of the Original.this is a lazy way of making movies just take a cherish classic like the Evil Dead,The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,The Amityville Horror,The Omen,etc.. & remake it to add more sex plus nude scenes.well that last part I like.hehehehe

  • Juggernaut

    Man that is intense! The toungue scene is so hard to watch. Can’t wait.

  • Scott

    i wonder if it will have that wonderfully wacky sense of humor like the original.

    • justjoe

      Guess with the original you think of Evil Dead 2 or Army of Darkness. Evil Dead 1 was pretty straight without jokes thrown in. However it was done pretty cheap and parts of it came of as unintentionally funny.

      • Michael Sloanne

        I agree.that’s what I meant the was a true horror as for Evil Dead 2 & 3 was essentially a comedy with a few horror.but they changed the beginning from the original Evil Dead. it was all 5 Ash,his girlfriend,his sister & his friend & his girlfriend.good thing about the original you never would have kn own ash would be the one to survive.cause his friend was the tough one in the & still am afraid of going into the woods everytime & see the reruns of the original.saw the promo & at least they show the tree rape scene that was in the original.would spoil it in case you haven’t see the original.

    • Juggernaut

      Don’t see that happening. It seems like this will be a straight on horor film which is fine by me. I know that the original was a classic and the fans love the humor and insanely over the top gore and camp but those movies just weren’t scary. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of heat for that but it’s true. I also know that it wasn’t Raimi’s intention to make a truly frightening movie. Just my opinion.

      • Nix

        You’re probably thinking about the two sequels. The original, as justjoe pointed out, was straight horror. If it looks campy at all, it’s only because of the low-tech special effects and period.
