Well, it is finally here. The official, Red Band trailer of Evil Dead has been released. It looks like Hollywood might be returning to the “wet” horror that used to gross us out and entertain us so much as fans. It has a possessed girl puking blood, tree attacks (do I need to remind everyone of the infamous scene?), and a chainsaw. I think this movie might actually do the original films right. When you through in the creative excellence of Alvarez plus Raimi, Tapert, and Campbell heading up production, you can only hope for a great movie.
Directed by Fede Alvarez and produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell, the film follows 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.

The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on April 12th.
So, what do you think?
