Darlings, have you had a chance to see the new red band trailer for the 2013 remake of Evil Dead? Although this is the first film in the franchise that is not directed by Sam Raimi or starring Bruce Campbell, the latest trailers have been generating quite a buzz.
For reference, here is the original 1981 trailer. What do you think, lovies?

– Like He Exploded from Inside: Prometheus International Trailer
– Hamming It Up With Hitchcock! Hopkins Plays the Hitch in new film “Hitchcock”
You know I youtubed this a while ago… I’m a huge Sam Rami and Bruce Campbell fan I don’t think I can handle this… I like that it was B film…
The original definitely paired its gore up with some campy fun. This trailer seems to take a more serious (and higher-budget) approach that could really intensify things. Then again, maybe I would have felt the same about the original back in 1981. 🙂
I can’t EVEN WAIT for this!!!
Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell both seem to be endorsing it, so with the trailer I am cautiously optimistic. If you see it first, make sure to report back! 🙂
Oh I will – I have plans to go see in the theater : )
I kinda hate when they remake movies like this. But we’ll see. For instance the Fright Night remake was horrid. But then, I actually enjoyed the Night of the Living Dead remake in 1990, and that’s saying something because I’m a hardcore Night of the Living Dead 1968 fan.
Even though the trailer looks intriguing, it does seem like the tone is a bit different, and I think the campiness of the original was part of its appeal.
Looks pretty kick-ass. And by the accounts I’ve read, the script stays true to the original, and they’re certainly not aiming for the PG13 crowd, so it could turn out to be quite an intense experience.
The trailer is pretty convincing that it will be worth a watch, just not sure why it couldn’t stand on its own as a new movie, even one with a similar story.
