Excited about it or not, the “Evil Dead” remake is headed our way regardless. And as skeptical as I’ve been about the whole process since the word go, I can’t front, what we’ve seen so far looks pretty damn cool. Like this new photo of Jane Levy screaming in the woods, being chased by some unknowable evil. While nothing you haven’t seen many times before, there’s a lot of promise and potential here.
A reboot of Sam Raimi’s 1981 horror camp classic, “Evil Dead” tells the story of a group of pretty twenty-something friends who venture into the woods for a weekend at a spooky cabin. After they discover the Necronomicon, the legendary book of the dead, and an archeologist’s recorded translation, they manage to accidentally awaken a hideous ancient evil. As you can imagine, things get worse from there as they fight just to survive.
Director Fede Alvarez, who directed the excellent short “Panic Attack”, was hand selected by Raimi and series star Bruce Campbell specifically to helm this remake. Diablo Cody (“Juno”, “Jennifer’s Body”) took a stab at the script. “Evil Dead” stars Levy Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, and Elizabeth Blackmore. Evil will invade this world on April 12, 2013.
