New red band trailer for EVIL DEAD is actually more gory than the first… believe it or not


Did you know Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are producing an EVIL DEAD remake/reboot? Last October at Dallas Comic Con’s FAN DAYS, Bruce showed the first red band teaser trailer to an enthusiastic audience, which made quite an impression. Today we have another red band trailer to show you, and while it’s hard to believe this one is actually more gory and more disturbing than the first. Campbell stressed that while this is a remake, it’s very much its own story – there’s no “Ash” character, and nothing is played for laughs. The new version is directed by Fede Alvarez, known up until now for directing short films. It stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Elizabeth Blackmore. For years people have been asking Bruce Campbell to make a sequel to ARMY OF DARKNESS, but in many ways I think this makes a lot more sense. Check it out for yourself and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

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.

WARNING – this is a really, really, really gory trailer. You’ve been warned.

EVIL DEAD opens on April 12, 2013
