I Will Accept Your Apologies: Bruce Campbell on Evil Dead Remake

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.

He’s admitted that he and Raimi aren’t infallible, though and had to draft in the expertise of Diablo Cody to help bring the movie up to date a little: “As middle aged men we don't know how young people talk. Oh, and she won a f*cking Academy award.” The movie is due out on April 12, 2013. They debuted a trailer at Comic Con, so expect to see that online soon.
