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.
