Normally we get the teaser poster before the trailer but that isn’t the case with the upcoming remake of the Evil Dead. The poster is simple and effective that claims to be “The most terrifying film you will ever experience”. Bold words. Words that I hope to be true. After have finally seeing the first teaser trailer of the Evil Dead, it’s been hard to find anyone not excited to see what producers Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell have in store for us.
It’s never easy seeing one of the horror classics being remade but I think the Evil Dead has so much potential to be one of the best horror films in recent memory. It’s not a shot-for-shot remake and won’t even feature the Ash character because what is the point of comparing apples to apples? Instead, Raimi and Campbell have created this new vision where some unassuming kids happened to have opened a book that they should have just left alone.
“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.”
What do you guys think of the first poster?
The book of the dead opens on April 12, 2013.
