The remake for cult-horror classic Evil Dead has had its first trailer hit the interwebs today, and it looks nuts.
Written by Diablo Cody and directed by Fede Alvarez, this new reboot of Sam Raimy’s 1981 cult horror classic, The Evil Dead, looks to be a darker, gorier, and straight up scarier retelling. And despite sporting the blood and gore that most modern “horror” flicks use these days, from the trailer it’s clear Evil Dead is sticking true to the dark, supernatural atmosphere of the original. It looks like a legit horror film, instead of goofy ghost hauntings or ridiculous gore-porn that’s been flooding the genre the past couple of decades.
The Evil Dead series are some of my favorite cult classic horror films, and I’m really excited to see the franchise live on. Personally, the taste the trailer offers looks awesome, and I’m extremely excited (despite the fact it’s entirely Bruce Campbell-less). Add it to the list of great movies coming in the first few months of 2013.
