During our break, the first poster was released for the upcoming EVIL DEAD remake. As with all teasers, it doesn’t give away much. What it DOES do, however, is make quite the promise: THE MOST TERRIFYING FILM YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE. We’ll see. I have my doubts, but you never know. There have, in the past, been one or two decent remakes. Given that THE EVIL DEAD is one of my favorite films of all time, it’s no secret that I’ve rallied against a remake. That being said, however, we have to remember that remake or no remake the original will always exist and always be the superior film. Does that mean I’ll never see the remake? Hell no, I’ll be first in line out of sheer curiosity. It’s human nature to stop and stare at tragedy after all.
The official red band teaser trailer for THE EVIL DEAD remake has finally premiered and, amazingly, it actually looks pretty damn good. Weird, right? But that’s the thing with trailers, they’re often so better than the movies themselves these days. Ok, ok, I know I should judge the film before seeing it, and I WILL see it because I’m such an EVIL DEAD mark, but given the track records of remakes recently, I’m not overly hopeful.
HOWEVER, people have been flipping out about it. NOW THE VERY TRAILER EVERYONE’S BEEN TALKING ABOUT HAS FINALLY BEEN OFFICIALLY LEAKED TO THE WEB! And now you’ll be able to check it out below after the break! I’m actually incredibly excited about this. Why? BECAUSE I LOVE THE EVIL DEAD and even if the film does suck out loud, Raimi and company are still a part of it and I doubt they’d sign off on a piece of crap. From the teaser alone, I can’t wait to check this one out! I know, I know, I’m a philistine, but I can’t help it!
