Sam Raimi’s classic film The Evil Dead is known for many things. Especially how damned bloody it was. With the remake looming, everyone’s wondering just what kind of violence we’re in store for. Well, Raimi himself has one hell of an answer for you.
Collider caught up with Raimi during a recent roundtable discussion (independent of the table we covered here), who had this to say about the gore in the upcoming film:
“It’s really bloody. It’s so bloody, it will make your head spin. I’ve seen almost all the dailies, and they’re really going for it. It’s gonna be grisly and intense and non-stop.” As for the rating, Raimi said, “Definitely R. Maybe worse.”
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.
