After the bloody red band trailer premiered for the new Evil Dead remake a lot of the news was dedicated to a quote from director Fede Alvarez claiming "[t]here's no CGI in the movie." Of course, in this day and age that's quite hard to believe (just go watch this weekend's new CG-loaded horror, Mama). Even more so when you look at the image above, which you would almost assume was enhanced with CGI rather than go the old fashioned route of makeup alone.
As far as just how gory the film will get with these practical effects, here's the full quote from the io9 interview, but do know it does contain some spoilers:
"We didn't do any CGI in the movie. There's no CGI in the movie. Everything you will see is real, which was really demanding. This was a very long shoot, 70 days of shooting at night. There's a reason people use CGI it's cheaper and faster, I hate that. We researched a lot of magic tricks and illusion tricks. [Like] how you would make someone's arm disappear.
There's a moment where a girl goes through her arm with a kitchen knife — spoiler alert. And we knew since day one the camera would start wide, she goes for the knife, you see her arm, she starts going for it. And you think they're going to cut away at any moment, but we don't. She just goes for it and screams and the arm breaks and falls. So we really pushed the boundaries there, trying to create those illusions... It has a particularly bloody ending. The last scene is just...I want it to be the bloodiest scene, ever. And I think it is."
