Typically, I have a huge dislike of remakes or reboots. I love originality, but there are a few times where a trailer pops up that makes a remake look entirely badass. The newly released red band trailer for The Evil Dead looks scary, gory, creepy, and all sorts of messed up. It looks like the horror comedy that was part of the original and its “sequel” has been replaced with pure horror. I have to say, I’m looking forward to watching the film!
What do you think? Is this going to be a great horror movie or might it go the way of gore porn or crappy remakes? Let me know!
Directed by Fede Alvarez, the film concerns five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths 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.
