“In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin.

Evil Dead shocks it’s way onto theater screens on April 5th and stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore and Jessica Lucas.
We’ll start with the new TV spot so you can check out the newest footage.
Here’s a look at how people are reacting to the first Evil Dead TV spot.
What do you think? I wasn’t very interested when word first came out about the reboot and that Bruce Campbell wasn’t starring in the flick somewhere. The more I see of this remake though, the more excited I am to go see this movie in the theater. Audience reaction is a major part of my enjoyment of seeing a good horror movie in the theater. This movie looks to be a real shocker. Will you be screaming in the theater seat behind me?
If you thought your elementary school librarian was tough on kids with overdue books you haven’t seen anything yet because when Hell’s librarian is pissed . . . all . . . hell . . . breaks . . . loose in Sam Raimi‘s Evil Deadreboot.
We’ve got a good look in and outside the book in question in the pictures above and below.
I hate it when the people I have loaned books to write in, spill food on, fold corners, or any other of the myriad of ways people have mishandled my books. I can only imagine how Hell’s Librarian would react to the mistreatment above.
If your gonna try to read something like this, don’t read it out loud, don’t even move your lips, and don’t read it while I am in the same universe as you.

Directed by Fede Alverez and produced by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, Evil Dead stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore.
Evil Dead hits theater screens on April 12th, 2013.
Will people go and see an Evil Deadmovie not starring Bruce Campbell? Can it be any good without Sam Raimi directing? These are the kinds of concerns this trailer is hoping to squash. Does it? Watch the full, red band, wonderfully gory trailer below and let us know,
I’m willing to be optimistic and give this update a shot. There seem to be quite a few really gruesome sequences in this trailer, and I think they look promising. I also spotted what looks like an update of the infamous, “chick is raped by a tree” scene and in the original that moment freaked me the fuck out. Can’t wait to see how it’s handle in this version. Though, I will mention this does look exactly like what I’d expect from an updated Evil Dead. Here’s hoping there are some cool, new surprises they haven’t shared just yet.
What are your thoughts? Yay or nay on the Evil Dead reboot, opening April 13th, 2013?
In which NYCC footage is reused once again to convince you that you will actually want to see this movie… or at least it’s trailer. First shown at the Evil Dead panel at the before mentioned con (and possibly by you when it leaked on the internet a few days later,) tomorrow (Wednesday Oct 24) will be your first official (legal) look at the new take on the cult classic, Evil Dead.
I grow weary of this teaser for a trailer trend, I really do. Check it out after the jump.
Evil Dead is set to hit theaters April 13th, 2013. The movie stars Jane Levy (who is not Bruce Campbell) and is directed by Fede Alvarez (a completely different person than Sam Rami.)
Preface: I, like I am sure many of you, oppose a reboot/remake of Sam Raimi‘s cult classic Evil Dead. Personally the original three movies stand as classics (with Evil Dead II the end all be all,) a horror holy trinity and should be left well enough alone. Enter Bruce Campbell. Taking to the stage at this years New York Comic-Con Mr. Campbell was tasked with convincing all of us that the new rebooted/remade Evil Dead is a good thing. The hard sell took the full 30 minutes for the record.
Joining the only Ash there will ever be Bruce Campbell on stage was the reboot’s director, Fede Álvarez, and not Ash the films lead character, Jane Levy. The mission, convince everyone in attendance that a ‘new’ Evil Dead is exactly what we want. Did they succeed? Hit the jump to see (possible spoilers)! (more…)
Honestly, had you asked me a few years ago if I’d be excited about an Evil Dead reboot I’d have scoffed in your face. How could the remake of this cult classic be any good? Especially without Sam Raimi behind the camera or Bruce Campbell in front!?
I felt more confident this wouldn’t be a giant pile of stinking shit once Fede Alvarez was attached to direct. I think his relative newcomer status as well as familiarity with low-budget restraints make him an excellent match for an Evil Dead remake. The Dead films were very low-budget and if you start throwing tons of cash at the franchise, you’d kill it.
Today it was announced Jane Levy, star of ABC’s sitcom Suburgatory, would take over the female lead from Lily Collins. Another unknown, what a smart move. The less we know about the stars I think the more we’ll relate when they’re suffering at the hands of unknown demonic horrors.
Plus, she’s cute. Every horror flick needs a cute chick to either be the lone survivor, or die in some gruesomely unexpected fashion.
In addition to this bit of casting news we have our first look at the film in this newly released set pic. It’s the road to hell which leads the five friends to that damned cabin in the woods.
Evil Dead deals with five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and 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.
What do you think about this reboot of Evil Dead? Are you excited or face-palming at the fact Raimi agreed to produce? It’s been confirmed Campbell will have a cameo, so it’ll be worth it to at least catch that.
