First Evil Dead Remake Poster Online
Get ready for terror

Clearly channelling the spirit and attitude of Bruce Campbell – who never knowingly resists the chance for some fun hyperbole – the marketing team behind the new take on Evil Dead is making sure the poster arrives with a big and bold claim. Check it out.

Given everything we’ve seen of the movie so far, it has a shot at living up to that claim, though the proof will be in the blood pudding. Plus it's a nice wink to the original's tagline, "The Ultimate Experience In Gruelling Terror." Coincidentally, that's also what we like to call work experice at Empire.

This time around, director Fede Alvarez (overseen by Evil Dead godfathers Campbell and Sam Raimi) is putting a group of teens through their demonic paces. When five twenty-something friends hole up in a remote cabin to help Mia (Jane Levy) maintain her sobriety, they discover its dark secrets.

Chief among those secrets is the Necronomicon and, when its terrible power is unleashed, they all fall victim to the forces of evil. Well, they’d have to, or else the film would be called Cabin In The Wo... Wait, no. That's taken. Cabin Fev... Darn it!

We’ll get to see the finished product on screen when it hits April 19. Meanwhile, check out the latest gory trailer below.

purplegnome - I'm with you all the way. Just how was the first Evil Dead a comedy? Apart from the plasticine fx at the end I don't recall laughing at any point of the film. And what is so funny about anybody being raped by a tree? It was a nasty film and is what it is - a horror with balls. I don't see how this remake will top the original because it's nothing new and nothing we haven't already seen. It's just the original minus the the plasticine. More

DeadEvil - I kinda agree with you and see your point. But for me - without Ash - this isn't an Evil Dead movie. Wish they had made it and called it something else. I bet none of the victims are as enduring or as likable as Ash - which will mean it's just another Cabin in The Woods movie without the satire. More

Am I one of only a few who thinks this looks brilliant? I'm a die hard fan of the originals and although the original first outing may have appeared to have some humourous content, it was never intended to be a horror/humour hybrid. Raimi and co were actually having a serious crack at a full on horror movie. Due to the budget and being less-experienced at the time, what resulted was a B-grade horror movie that happened to create a cult following as it was different to other films aout at the More

No Ash no Evil Dead
The Evil Dead films were unique - as opposed to Halloween, Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street you were rooting for the hero / victim. The Evil Dead without Ash is like A Nightmare on Elm Street without Freddy. In other words a bit meh. More

Some of you have clearly never seen the original, and are only going by #2 or #3. More

RE: Either Way
L: drews What made the Evil Dead so great was how funny it was. This doesn't seem like it is going to retain the humour. Shame. ep. Plus the poster would look better without the self-indulgent blurb. More

"The most terrifying film you will ever see" Really? Cos in my experience, when a horror film TELLS YOU to be scared, it turns out to be not that scary. It's like a stand up calling themself controversial. More
