Love it or hate it, the “Evil Dead” remake is coming to a theater near you next year. In a rarity for these type of remakes, this time around the original guys (aka star Bruce Campbell and writer/director Sam Raimi) made the remake happen instead of just going along with it. So, without further delay, get an eyeful of the very first Red Band teaser trailer for “Evil Dead”. Looks scary enough for you? I guess the Shiloh Fernandez kid is playing the Ash character if the still above from the trailer is any indication. Well, not Ash in name, but Ash in chainsaw wielding, from the looks of it.
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.
The reboot stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, Elizabeth Blackmore, and is directed by Fede Alvarez, who was handpicked by Raimi and Campbell for the gig.
Heading out into the cabin all over again April 12, 2013.
