The more images and trailers that the Evil Dead remake releases, the more menacing it looks. In the latest red band trailer, the character Mia is revealed to be the first one to turn into a deadite (as you might have guessed), and also the one to undergo the infamous tree rape. It seems like in this version, at least what I’ve seen from the trailers, that the possession will be transferred physically from person to person. Either that, or director Fede Alvarez just really wanted to gross us out. Either way, this trailer has made me a little more excited for this remake. This movie may not be the “most terrifying film you will ever experience” as the posters suggests, but it could possibly be the bloodiest, at least in a long while.
In the film, five twenty-something friends become stranded at a remote cabin in the woods when flooding waters trap the group at the campsite. After discovering a book that’s bound in human flesh, and reciting the latin written within the book, evil ancient spirits are released. One by one, each person becomes a self-mutilating monster, as the remaining few struggle to survive until dawn.
Produced by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, the cast for this film includes: Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, and Jessica Lucas.
