The Wait is Almost Over for the ‘Evil Dead’ Reboot! [VIDEO]
Hail to the king baby, the Evil Dead is back! Just 9 more days, that's it. I can hardly wait until Friday, April 5th 2013 (04-05-13) that's when the Evil Dead will finally be released, more like unleashed in theaters nationwide! I've been looking forward to this since the rumors broke last year about the reboot of the film. It promises to be an unforgettable hack and slash, blood soaked, gore infested thrill ride!
When I first heard rumors about a possible ‘Evil Dead’ remake I was skeptical to say the least. Then when it was confirmed and the news broke that Bruce Campbell wouldn’t be in the film I was pissed! How can you have an ‘Evil Dead’ movie without Bruce, the original and only Ash? Bruce might not be in front of the cameras, but he's certainly behind them!
This new ‘Evil Dead’ is in reality an all new movie that shares some, but not all of the ‘Evil Dead’ history. As a matter of fact this new film doesn’t even have Ash, instead the main character is a female named Mia. The main story remains unchanged. A group of teenagers visit a remote cabin in the woods and find an old Sumerian text ‘The Necronomicon Ex-Mortis’ A.K.A ‘The Book of the Dead’. By reading it’s passages aloud they accidentally awaken an ancient evil that means to destroy them all.
Director Sam Raimi is finally making the movie he originally set out to make all those years ago. With recent advancements in special effects and makeup Mr. Raimi will have a much easier time of realistically bringing all the horror and gore to life, not to mention a much bigger budget. He’s not directing this time but producing along with Mr. Campbell. The remake will be directed instead by Fede Alvarez and stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore.
