The release of the new ‘Evil Dead’ from Fede Alvarez is quickly approaching and the film definitely has a lot of buzz surrounding it. Fans of the original trilogy should be glad to know that Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce Campbell, the people behind the original cult classic franchise, are directly involved in the new one. Also, there’s even talks of a sequel already, way before the first one even hits theaters. I can tell you from first hand experience that this is one hell of a movie, so I’m not really surprised.
Thanks to Collider, you can check out another new clip from the film, as well as a new poster that sings the praises of the upcoming horror film. In the clip, all the kids are gathered in the cabin in the woods, but one of them doesn’t seem like themselves. People who are looking to avoid spoilers might want to reconsider checking out either one of these new bits of promotional material, but it’s interesting to note that fans of the original movie may see a familiar sequence. If you’ve decided to go through with it, you can see what I mean in the clip below:
The poster also features a nod to fans of the original. Not going to lie, when it happened in the movie, my first reaction was “Hell yeah!”. You can see the new poster below that features a very special tool, along with the film’s synopsis, below:
In the remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they 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.
What do you think of the new clip and poster? Are you excited to see the new ‘Evil Dead’ when it hits theaters? Sound off in the comments. Also, if you’re not excited to see it, you should be. My full review of the film is coming soon, but I’ll tell you right now that you should see it.
‘Evil Dead’ starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Elizabeth Blackmore, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Jessica Lucas opens in theaters everywhere on April 5, 2013.
