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. NOW THE VERY TRAILER EVERYONE’S BEEN TALKING ABOUT HAS BEEN LEAKED TO THE WEB! Of course, it’s blurry as it was taken shakily by a camera phone, but now you’ll be able to check it out below after the break! 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.
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.
