Official Red Band Trailer for Evil Dead Remake Drops
Gotta admit that this one kinda snuck up on me. I wasn’t expecting to see the red band trailer for the EVIL DEAD remake for a few more months, but the producers/filmmakers have cranked one out. And I must say that I’m torn. The trailer looks fantastic. Some great shots, great gore, and it even looks as though they’re going to recreate the tree-raping scene from the original. It’s a lot better looking than I thought … but. Yeah, there’s always a big but!! There’s two words that still scare me about this remake. Diablo. Cody. Gore is great and all, but if the dialogue is insufferable, then what’s the point? I know I’ve been hard on this one, but I’m big enough to admit that this one has me intrigued.
The EVIL DEAD remake is directed by Fede Alvarez, written by Alvarez, Rodo Sayagues Mendez, Sam Raimi, and Diablo Cody, and stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, and Jessica Lucas. Check out the plot crunch:
Shiloh Fernandez landing the male lead role in the new Evil Dead. He’ll be playing the part of David, a young man who attempts to wean his sister Mia (Jane Levy) off her drug habit, in the aftermath of their mother’s death. David assembles a team of friends to accompany him and Mia on an intervention retreat, at an old cabin in the woods. Once there, everything seems to be going according to plan– that is, until one of David’s pals starts messing around with the Necronomicon (a.k.a. the Book of the Dead)…
Enough … here’s the official red band trailer for the EVIL DEAD remake, and enjoy some stills from the remake as well:
What do you think? Has it changed your mind at all (don’t misunderstand me … this is still an unnecessary remake, but does the trailer make you a little more curious)?
