Okay, my fellow Deadites. On tap right now is the first official still and the footage description from the New York Comic Con Evil Dead panel thanks to our own Nomad! Read on to find out what was shown and glimpse your first demon in high resolution!
Best horror trailer I’ve ever seen! It’s a collecton of flashes… the woods… the house… the inside in disarray… blood leading to a rug… the door under the rug… animals hanging in the cellar… a book being unwrapped out of some plastic… cryptic messages written in red within… then all hell breaks loose. People crawling on the ground in an inhuman way… people in shadow with a light passing over… tree rape… a woman with a twitching hand… she goes at it with an electric knife (the kind you use to cut a turkey), and finally a possessed woman cutting into her face… and then the final sequence of a possessed woman menacing another woman, licking a box cutter with the blade into her tongue. The crowd is screaming the whole time. Huge reaction. Jane from the movie is returning to her seat when the lights come on. She got crazy freaked out as she never saw the trailer before. So suffice to say, the trailer is extremely effective. It’s wet… mean and intense.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly for the following still!
Ghost House Pictures is producing the much anticipated remake of 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.
In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they 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.
