Evil Dead Reboot Wraps! The Waiting Begins.





So the first part of the trek to a new Evil Dead film is officially over. The film has wrapped, post-production is set to begin, and now all we have to do is wait patiently for the film Sam Raimi calls "intense, scary, and gut-wrenching."

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.

Synopsis
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.

I'm surprisingly not as hard on this remake as others, but that doesn't mean I'm looking forward to it. The Diablo Cody tailoring wreaks of desperation, and Sam Raimi is painfully overselling it.

I dont really care about how gut wrenching this is going to be. The original Evil Dead is untouchable, and is still a kickass horror film by todays standards. I think Id rather see an Evil Dead 4.
