You just have to appreciate the enthusiasm of horror fans. What’s supposed to be a “bootlegged from a video monitor” trailer for the Evil Dead remake has hit YouTube, and even though it’s completely fake, it’s pretty friggin’ cool.
How do we know it’s fake, you ask? Given the misspellings and other assorted errors like an entirely different cast it’s pretty damned apparent. Not to mention that their title card bares a striking resemblance to the one I photoshopped below for us to use here during Comic Con. Nice try, guys! Here’s hoping that the real thing looks as badass.
Ghost House Pictures is producing the much anticipated remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult-hit horror film The Evil Dead, the film that effectively launched the careers of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise, Darkman, Drag Me to Hell), Rob Tapert (30 Days of Night), and Bruce Campbell, who played the Ash character and was co-producer of the original. They are now back to produce an Evil Dead for today’s audience that’s high on the horror, gore, plot twists, and more from a screenplay written by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues with Diablo Cody. Executive producers are J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane, Joseph Drake, and Peter Schlessel.
A core cast of young, fresh talent includes Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”) as Mia; Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood) as David; Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) as Eric; Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) as Olivia; and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) as Natalie.
Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
