Remake or Sequel? Fede Alvarez Sets the Record Straight on 2013’s EVIL DEAD

Evil Dead 2013 Poster 202x300 - Remake or Sequel? Fede Alvarez Sets the Record Straight on 2013’s EVIL DEADDon’t call it a remake; according to Fede Alvarez, his 2013 reimagining of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead is actually a sequel. He made the clarification via Twitter while taking a break from promoting his latest film, The Girl in the Spider’s Web (now playing in theaters nationwide). This ends a long-running debate between horror fans over whether Mia’s battle with Sumerian demons takes place in a parallel universe or the same one Ash exists in.

The main clue that the two films take place in the same universes are the same is the car.

“[Evil Dead 2013] continues the first one. The coincidences on events between the first film and mine are not coincidences, but more like dark fate created by the evil book. (Ash car is still there rusting away).”

Synopsis:
Mia (Jane Levy), a drug addict, is determined to kick the habit. To that end, she asks her brother, David (Shiloh Fernandez), his girlfriend, Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore) and their friends Olivia (Jessica Lucas) and Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci) to accompany her to their family’s remote forest cabin to help her through withdrawal. Eric finds a mysterious Book of the Dead at the cabin and reads aloud from it, awakening an ancient demon. All hell breaks loose when the malevolent entity possesses Mia.

  1. Wow, a sequel with the same story as it’s predecessor, except the original knew when to end, and had a protagonist you actually empathized with, not some selfish, angst ridden douche I couldn’t wait to watch die, but, surprise surprise, she’s the only survivor. No one ever thought of that. Probably because it’s extremely lame, and lazy. And why wait 5 years to reveal this?
