‘Evil Dead’ Red Band Trailer: The Red is For Lots and Lots of Blood

The Evil Dead Red Band Trailer
Sony Pictures

It’s hard to be a film fan and not love Sam Raimi‘s 1981 horror movie ‘The Evil Dead.’ Not only did it kick off the career of one of the great geeks heroes of cinema, it’s one of those scrappy no-budget classics that gets over because of the sheer willpower of the director and the ethos that any character can die at any time. It seems like an untouchable classic. But watching the red band trailer for Fede Alvarez’s remake ‘Evil Dead?’ We’re sold on this remake.

The premise is the same: Five college-age kids go to a cabin in the woods for a vacation, but they find the book of the dead, and after reading from it aloud all hell breaks loose. But where the first film is ingenious in its way, its edge has been dulled by the sequels, which erred more on the side of comedy than horror, and a familiarity with the filmmaker and his leading man Bruce Campbell.

This just looks brutal, and uses the original as a leaping-off point. And though it incorporates many of the same elements from the original (including possessed trees invading a young woman), the remake looks like it has some tricks up its sleeves. We’ll know for sure when the film hits theaters April 12.
