The first still from Fede Alvarez’s eagerly anticipated (at least by me!) redux of Sam Raimi’s 1981 ultimate experience in grueling terror, EVIL DEAD, just premiered at New York Comic Con and as you can see above, it’s creeper than hell. A teaser trailer was also shown (with the cast, director, and Bruce Campbell in attendance!), and apparently it’s chock full of gore, chainsaws, and rape prone trees! That should debut online in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled here and at the films’ official Facebook page for any updates.
EVIL DEAD returns to theaters to swallow your soul April 12th, 2013.
Synopsis: “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.”
