I can’t say I’m too thrilled about seeing an Evil Dead remake, but after today’s bit of news I can guarantee I’ll at least laugh my way through Federico Alvarez’s upcoming re-imagining of Sam Raimi’s classic.

Federico Alvarez Talks Evil Dead RemakeAccording to Bloody Disgusting, Evil Dead Redux finds five friends trekking to that ill-fated Tennessee cabin in an effort to help one of their friends kick her drug addiction: Without her drugs she becomes insane and difficult to control, which makes it impossible to see that she’s actually possessed.

So there’s that. Of course, the demons are unleashed when one of the kids reads aloud from the Necronomicon. I know it’s closed minded to ridicule these films every step of the way, but this sounds like a plot device that’s trying too hard to be edgy. We’ll find out as this one looms closer. Keep watching this space for all the gory details. Hopefully the next bit of news goes a long way toward making this whole premise sound a bit better.

    Can’t they just get her to chill out by taking her out back where Jason’s weed grows?

    Hm, if they could play the drug bit well; it could be something interesting.

    Shameless cash grab that shits on the memory of the originals.

    Raimi doesn’t need the money so why do something so unnecesary?
