The 'Evil Dead' Remake Seems To Be The Most Ridiculously Violent Movie Ever Made... And I Can't Wait!!!!


I have been tracking the remake of Evil Dead for quite a while and have always found the prospect of it quite encouraging. It had one thing going for it that most of the horror remakes that have been coming out lack, and that is the involvement of key people from the first one. In this instance it's director Sam Raimi and star Bruce Campbell, who are both returning as overseers in the executive producer chairs. Raimi got a chance to make a bigger, badder movie with Evil Dead 2, which is essentially the same movie as Evil Dead 1 with a bigger budget and a few additional cast members. But both films have a certain slapstick quality to them, and that is what makes them so great. It is also what has made Bruce Campbell's career. And also made the film series one of my favorites of all time. So when they decided to go remake, it seems Raimi decided to just take the dark turn all the way to the bank. The demonic possession and invulnerability of the Deadites  is played up to a 10 in this version of the story, and the red band trailer is driving that point home more and more. God damn, that razor!!!! This movie looks more violent and creepy then ever before... and I have to say that I think it is exactly what it needed to remake a classic like this! Make it original, even if it is not an original premise. Check out the red band trailer after the jump and let me know what you guys think about this one. I think any real horror fan worth his weight in bath salts has to love this....
