FIRST IMAGE FROM THE EVIL DEAD REMAKE TRAILER AND INFORMATION FROM THE NYCC PANEL

Unfortunately, none of us here at Backwoods Horror were available to attend the New York Comic Con this year, which is a damn shame because while I’ve been deriding it as a useless, unnecessary remake (which I still believe to be true), the teaser trailer for THE EVIL DEAD remake premiered and, amazingly, we’ve been hearing nothing but good things about it. 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, as I said above, the teaser trailer premiered at the NYCC and people have been flipping out about it. Directed by Fede Alvarez and starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, Jessica Lucas, and Bruce Campbell, FilmDistrict’s reboot is aiming for release on April 12th, 2013. Also, be sure to check out the official website and facebook page.

SYNOPSIS:

Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and 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.

A NEW BANNER FOR THE EVIL DEAD REMAKE MAKES AN APPEARANCE AT NYCC

While everything I hear about the EVIL DEAD remake just makes it sound like more and more of a giant, steaming pile of crap, one thing is definite: it’s getting a LOT of buzz. Recently at the New York Comic Con, a new banner has appeared. It seems like the filmmakers behind this needless remake are doing all they can to promote the hell out of it. I’ve tried not to pass judgement on the film before seeing it, but THE EVIL DEAD is a perfect horror film through and through, unnecessary of a remake. Given that and an untested director and a script partially written by Diablo Cody (one of the shittiest screenwriters of all time), things aren’t looking good…

Directed by Fede Alvarez and starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, Jessica Lucas, and Bruce Campbell, FilmDistrict’s reboot is aiming for release on April 12th, 2013. Though news about the remake is being kept under wraps, for those of you who are actually excited about this film, you can check out the new banner below.

Though news about the remake is being kept heavily under wraps, Alvarez, via twitter, released the first set image from the film a few months back: the dark forest road leading up to the cabin.
