'Evil Dead' Remake Poster Sets the Bar High with Quite a Daring Claim
Well, that's one way to market a horror movie. The new poster for the remake of Evil Dead from director Fede Alvarez is pulling out all the stops by just coming out and daring you to see this movie. It's a simple poster with a foggy image of a clearly traumatized girl staggering with the words "The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience." That's a pretty bold claim, especially for fans who loved the original film from Sam Raimi in the 80s. The first trailer looked pretty bloody, but didn't seem to offer anything new in the vein of horror, so we'll see if audiences are coaxed into theaters to see if the film lives up to the hype.
Here's the first poster for Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead remake from Yahoo:
Evil Dead (2013) is a Raimi-approved-and-produced remake of Sam Raimi's original 1981 low budget horror classic, The Evil Dead. Directing is Fede Alvarez, a Uruguayan filmmaker who broke into Hollywood with his short film Panic Attack, making his feature debut with this. He helped write the script after he came on-board, with Oscar winner Diablo Cody credited on the original draft. The new cast includes Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore. Sony/Screen Gems will be releasing this new Evil Dead in theaters on April 12th next spring. This looks crazy! Your thoughts?
