With the blessing of Sam Raimi and the clear cooperation of Bruce Campbell (who's also producing), Evil Dead is getting a remake over 30 years after the original was first released and today a teaser for tomorrow's trailer has arrived using footage from the film along with snippets of the New York Comic Con panel discussion featuring Campbell, director and co-writer Fede Alvarez and star Jane Levy.

This retelling features five friends holed up at a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead, which releases a demonic force, possessing each until only one is left to fight for survival.

The film is set to hit theaters on April 13, 2013. I'll have the full trailer for you tomorrow once it arrives online, for now, here's the teaser...

    I've been eating a little crow after seeing the red band trailer that leaked recently. It looks incredibly stylish and vicious. Stowing my cynicism on the strength of that footage. Very excited for this now.

    Brad, are you an Evil Dead fan?

    • Brad Brevet

      I've only seen the first one once and didn't mind it and seen Army of Darkness a couple times and it makes me laugh, but not necessarily a "fan".

      • Susan

        The first and third are fine, but I think I speak for the majority in saying Evil Dead II was the special one and best of the bunch.

  • Shloggs

    Brad, you should check out Evil Dead 2 sometime. It's perhaps the most purely "Raimi" film Sam Raimi has ever made. Pure manic energy and unbridled creativity.

  • Elijah

    Rewatched Evil Dead 2 a few months ago, liked it a lot more this time around than maybe 7 years ago. It would be great to just fast forward to that period where the Academy Awards starts rewarding brilliant horror films again?

    Out of curiosity Brad are there any "Best Picture" periods in time that you feel are the strongest? Maybe like a string of 4 or 5 movies that were really similar in quality and mature content. One that comes to mind is The Departed, No Country, Slumdog, and Hurt Locker, it's all subjective but these are pretty damn good movies.
