The upcoming remake of “The Evil Dead” — don’t ask questions, of course it’s being remade, this is Hollywood and this is horror, everything gets remade, so of course “The Evil Dead” is getting remade, it’s just surprising it took this long, frankly — now has a very bloody, very gory trailer. This is not for the squeamish. Check it out (warning: language and extreme gore):
The maddening fun of the original “Evil Dead” — and its remake/follow up, “Evil Dead 2″ — was the goofy, horror-comedy tone which, at least judging by this trailer, seems to have been wiped away with the remake. Hopefully this is just a trailer to appease gorehounds and the tone of the new movie will be similar to the original. Sam Raimi is credited with writing the script (along with Diablo Cody!), so there’s hope.
“Evil Dead” opens in spring.
