Sam Raimi Goes In Hard With Evil Dead Remake Trailer

Sam Raimi and his production team have gone in hard with the trailer for the Evil Dead remake.

Branded for mature audiences only, there are moments in this teaser that are so gory, they leave you wondering what hell they’ve put in the rest of the movie. This remake of Raimi’s classic 1981 movie starring Bruce Campbell was initially met with a degree of pessimism from horror purists but he’s back on board, with Sam Raimi and indie movie darling Diablo Cody both claiming a writing credit for the remake and with Fede Alvarez in the director’s seat, they appear to have taken no prisoners with this resurrection and the trailer alone is sure to silence the cynics.

2013’s Evil Dead stars Jane Levy as Mia. Shiloh Fernadez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore all join her onscreen, as does Bruce Campbell himself, albeit briefly. Campbell, of course, is a huge part of the success of the original 1980s movies, so it’s a relief to see him on production duties here as well.

The first image of the Evil Dead remake was released at New York’s Comic Con 2012.

Bruce Campbell was belligerently confident that die-hard fans will soon be swallowing all of the criticism they have spouted at the mere thought of a remake of the classic 1981 horror. Sam Raimi is back on board with the remake, whilst Bruce Campbell (who starred in the original) is one of the producers.

These days, there is hardly a horror movie left unturned these days. Remakes keep cropping up left right and centre; Carrie is one of the latest to get the modern Hollywood treatment and, of course, Tinseltown have been re-hashing Japanese (The Ring, for example) and European (take Let The Right One In, for example…) horror for years now. You don’t need to be particularly cynical to arrive at the assumption that the horror genre might be flagging a little. Not so, says Campbell, who, according to empireonline.com, insisted “Your sh*t will be just as freaked as it was in the original. We've got some really talented people who kicked their ass off. I know you fans were pissed. Don't think I didn't read about it every single day. Just wait and see the movie. I will accept all of your collective apologies. We don't want to screw this up.” Fighting talk from Campbell, there.
