I'm not usually a fan of remakes but I think this looks good. When approaching this film I think the best thing to do will be not to think of it as a remake at all. They don't look like they have tried to capture the essence of the original at all (the original was more funny and scary). I would rather see a film where I don't know every single thing that is going to happen (like the totally pointless remake of let the right one in!). If it scares the hell out of me then as far as I'm concerned, they have done a good job..... And this looks scary! I will of course wait for the empire review and see what some of you goons have to say about it before I commit. I'm very selective about the cinema nowadays. It's just to damn expensive :)

I think this Film is looking to be purposefully unlike the original in certain aspects.
I think its going to be alot more even grounded interms of realism and drama,But it'll obviously keep the manic tension and the sense of doom upon all those involved in this nightmarish situation.

What I do find humorous is the fact that Evil Dead could be regarded as now having two remakes ie Evil Dead 2 and now Evil Dead (2013).
And rether you agree that Evil Dead 2 was a remake or not you have to say this film looks far more comparative to the original Evil Dead 1981 film than that of the 1987 movie.

But I will say this.The Trailer didn't do much for me.

No, looks pretty good to me.

So... it looks pretty good to you, even though the trailer is only a minute long and probably isn't truly representative of the film's overall quality?

Interesting...

All the cast look about 18 is what I'm saying.


They're the same age as Campbell was when he made the first, some are older.

As for "generic", see my earlier comment.

I'm not a puritanical idiot so I think it's cool that they've done something new with it. Looks a lot more horrifying than the original as the comedy element has been ditched. Hopefully this will be properly horrible. I like a good scare.

Isn't that the point of a trailer? To show you a small glimpse of a film to see if it interests you?

Yes. But that wasn't the point of my comment. I never thought that subtlety was one of my strong points...

OK, you got me there.

I'm trying to be positive about this. It's a good trailer.

Unfortunately a lot of nasty mutilations didn't make Evil Dead the classic series we have now. No personality at all to be seen, the money should have been spent on a sequel.


Oh, come on now, it's not as if the original Evil Dead was this Hitchcockian flick that relied on psychological horror as opposed to lashings of gore. I mean, it had a demonic rapist tree in it!

Also: you're judging this film on a minute worth of footage.



Isn't that kind of the point of trailers? To make you want to watch it.

Personally I just think it looks like any other horror movie to be honest. That said I think we do look at the Evil Dead series with rose tinted glasses, but the main problem this has is that if you had The Evil Dead films without the Ash character then they would probably only be remembered for being banned once. The Ash character made those films - he was an original, funny character...this looks like a lot of teens getting butchered in fairly bog-standard ways...

I was hoping for something genuinely creepy and funny (think Cabin Fever, Slither etc). Instead this looks like it will just be another experiment in how much we can push bad taste. Thats what the original did; but it did it with panache, originality and fun.

Could be wrong; I suspect I'm not!


To be fair, Ash wasn't really the selling point of the first film. In fact, even with him absent it would still be as strong as it is. I'd say the thing that stood the original out was the relentless, non-stop assault of effects, scares and gore. There's a certain sadistic throw-everything-at-the-camera charm of the original which has never been equalled in my opinion (as much as I love Evil Dead 2). Once it kicks off there really is nothing out there, before or since, quite like it. Ash is barely more than the basic 'survivor' character.

He becomes the Ash we know and love when he gets all maimed up and groovy.

As for the trailer. I was fundamentally against a remake of one of my all time favourites but it has peaked my interest somewhat. Couldn't have eaten more humble pie when the Dawn Of The Dead remake came out so I'll remain intrigued for now.

I suppose having looked at the trailer again through the eyes of it being a remake of Evil Dead as oppossed to Evil Dead 2 it does fit better...

You know I actually can't argue with any of your points......hate it when that happens

There are no words. They got the director of "ataque de Panico" to direct a bog standard cabin in the woods movie and slapped an "evil dead" sticker on it. There are no words.

Come on People! Always such a fuss made about remakes! I'm a HUGE fan of the cult classic we know and love as the Evil Dead but.... my god this trailer looks BRILLIANT

From what I know about Sam Raiimi, this is what he always wanted to achieve but couldnt at the time given his finances and the era the original was shot. Our perception of what is 'scary' has changed since the 70's. The Evil Dead was a brilliant flick for it's time, but with today's standards it doesnt weigh up. I love the fact that people are re-making some of the classics. So many times I've watched another classic horror movie from my collection and wandered what they could do with it today given today's budget and technology. Some flop, but some are brilliant! This looks scary and sadistic as s***t. Bring it on!

It looks fairly gruesome and it looks quite scary as well, it seems as if the guy with the glasses will be like the new Ash, either that or bits of Ash's personality will be infused into the lot of them any ho it looks enjoyable and I hope it isn't shit.

I would say the best one I've ever seen is the Dawn of the Dead remake...which is hard to say as the original is one of my favourite films of all time!!
