Coming Soon: Evil Dead (April 12, 2013) NSFW

She will swallow you soul

When I first heard about a remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 horror classic Evil Dead, my first thought was, “why?”.  Seeing how they already remade it when they made Evil Dead II and decided on the more campy goofball side of the horror genre when they continued the story of Ash in Army of Darkness, I couldn’t really see the point.  Bruce Campbell made such a huge impact as Ash I simply could not image Raimi (who wrote the screenplay for this as well as being a producer along with Bruce Campbell) needing to go back and revisit the story of five youngsters in a cabin who discover the Necronomicon and inadvertently unleash… well… evil.

After seeing this trailer, I no longer have any doubts.  This remake of Evil Dead looks absolutely horrifying, and quite possibly as frightening as I imagined the original to be when I was a kid.  I spent the whole time trying to figure out who is Ash… then I took at look at IMDB and found that there is no Ash… this is a new group of youngsters with some very updated visuals and a number of terrifying scenes.  Fortunately, evil looks to be the same camera rushing towards you.

The trailer is very much NSFW and not safe for the squeamish… you have been warned.

That’s one way to cleave a tongue,
