Evil Dead Remake Trailer

"You're all going to die tonight." Screen Gems has finally unveiled the first gory, crazy red band trailer for Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead remake, produced by Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell. This is one of those long-awaited, but entirely dreaded moments, where we kind of want to see what it is and how it looks, but expect it to be pretty bad (or at least incomparable to Raimi's original). Take a look and see for yourself. The brand new 2013 Evil Dead stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore as the new victims of the infamous Necronomicon. Watch the wild trailer below!

Watch the first red band trailer for Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead remake, originally from Sony Pictures:

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?

    Kinda pointless remake but nevertheless, it still looks decent! btw - "connect with" doesnt work with Chrome. FYI
  • Danimal
    I'm not gonna lie. It's lookin pretty intense. And yes I'm a HUGE fan of the original. Totally giving this a chance!
    • beevis
      agreed - it looks like they threw out the campy feel of the original and upped the horror aspect - i'm in.
    • son_et_lumiere
      yep, this does look good and intense, worthy of a chance, even from doubters (like me). if there was no original, i'd have no qualms. as there is, they could have tried a few new things, rather than using the same pursuing camera style and some scenes straight out of the original. but this *is* only the trailer, so the full monty may bring more rewards. even though you'll likely never convince me a remake was ever necessary, colour me optimistic.
      • beevis
        i agree on the remake not being necessary - it's the same for any remake. but, with that being said - i am encouraged by the trailer - i was thinking it's be a total disaster; but, this is looking much better than i thought it would.
  • If only I didn't have to wait until next year. Oh wait, I don't. Another pointless remake.
  • Think I just saw the whole film right there!
    • Well if you have any idea of what the film is from seeing the original then it's easy to put together the pieces.
  • Craig
    Looks fantastic, but it needs a Bruce Campbell cameo.
    • That would be amazing if he shows up in the movie.
      • Jericho
        being Producer maybe he will go a more serious cameo and be the professor who finds the book?

    ... groovy?

    Am I watching a trailer for "Evil Dead" or "Cabin in the Woods". The first 30 secs is almost identical to Cabin in the woods.
    • Brad
      Cabin in the Woods was an homage to many great horror films. In fact, Cabin borrowed the "words that shouldn't be spoken" from the original Evil Dead. Remember, this is a remake, not an original.
      • IamSlave
        Yes I know... I was only joking my friend. :)
  • jordan
    Now that's a trailer. the last 30 seconds are crazy good. I can't wait.
  • Better than I imagined it would be
  • Oh yes, groovy.

    Holy crap. That was well..............Brutal. Definitely gonna watch this.
  • teffy
    this looks like a Walt disney movie
    • beevis
      in what way?
      • marty
        In the way that he's being sarcastic... sheesh
        • beevis
          your comment makes no more sense than teffys did.
  • Daniel_Plainview_Milkshake
    Even though Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 are my all time favorite horror movies, I'm actually super pumped for this remake
  • That put me on edge... it's been a long time since a trailer, even for a horror movie was able to do that. Wow. Good job!
  • stevenfreestyler
    I'm a fan of Evil Dead but this looks like another regular virus outbreak bloody zombie movie "Walking Dead with extra blood perhaps". Demons here looks a little tamed than the original.
  • This looked more serious and scary than campy and silly, which is how I remember the original.
  • Richie G
    Wow, that was messed up
  • F*****k, why did I watch that full screen ... lol
  • ChrisIlls
  • max
    People seem to forget that this is a remake of the original, which was in fact quite a serious, if low-budget, horror movie, and not nearly as camp as the second one and AoD, for which most people remember the franchise. And oh, oh, the updated raping tree. That's sure going to spark some controversy.
    • son_et_lumiere
      good point. Evil Dead '81 is like Texas Chain Saw '74 in that respect - still trying to scare - and succeeding - despite the budgetary restrictions. Evil Dead II is where we head towards black comedy.
      • guest
        Jesus, you kids have no clue, do you? Go back to Twilight.
        • There hipsters, they watched Evil Dead before it was cool.
          • Sky
            Evil Dead has always been cool... what the hell r u talking about????
    • beevis
      i thought the original was great, campy fun - i don't know how anyone could classify the original as "serious horror". army of darkness was just a lot of suck. edit - apparently there are 5 people who have no clue what "real horror" is.
      • son_et_lumiere
        fair play to you, just had a different effect on me at the first time of viewing! and i suppose Bruce Campbell himself is quite a good definition of 'great campy fun'!
        • beevis
          i guess it's me, man. i would call exorcist movie "serious horror" - not evil dead. my friends and i saw ED at a drive-in in '81 and we were having a good time with it. we thought it was black humor at it's finest. hey, everybody is entitled to their opinion and i'm not saying anyone is wrong - i just never saw ED as anything BUT campy fun.
      • D6
        My take on it is, that the original Evil Dead turned out unintentionally "funny" and Raimi just went for that for the second one, which worked. But yeah, Army of Darkness was really bad.
  • Looks more gross than scary
  • Mufasa
    Knowing me, I'll watch it when it comes out, and knowing that it is a remake, I'll probably complain about it afterward. Hopefully, it isn't the case for this one. This trailer makes it look good!
  • Where the F***k Is the awesome comedy of ash in this film??????. I just see another teen horror movie. Bleh
  • ae
    what a waste.
  • Errorsapiens
  • castingcouch
    Just a bunch of modern feminist gore with no imagination.
    • everythingspolitical?
      Wtf is feminist gore?!
      • SuicidalOptimist
        An extremely heavy period, maybe?
        • Armeetapus16
          that was probably too clever for castingcouch, well done
  • masterdebater
    Seems pretty generic : /
  • Why a spring release? Time to take over Paranormal activity's dominance in October
  • The original one is actually pretty scary... granted it wont scare anyone now but if you think about it back then it was a pretty scary film I think what made the franchise popular was obviously Ash... its seems like his "character" wont be in it (i.e. there might be someone playing Ash but they most likely wont "act" the same) this movie looks pretty fucking... I'm definitely gonna watch it
    • Jericho
      so that no one will do any poor comparisons, they wont be having any of the original character names in it....
  • Cody W
    Yeaaah, looks like more gore porn to me, probably a netflix for me.
  • Armeetapus16
    It looks like it going to be loads better that the first one, and I know it's not even going to attempt to compare itself to 2 and 3. It's going to be it's own movie with new characters while still maintaining good parallels to the original and maybe have some good elements from for the 2nd. It looks super intense and I'm very much looking forward to it
  • BinaryChaos
    Ok, that just looks creepy and twisted. I've only glimpsed the original Evil Dead and it never caught my interest because of how campy it was and never really understood the story other than a guy running around with a chainsaw killing dead people so I have no say on the classic but this movie looks absolutely creepy the way Silent Hill should of been. I just hope that wasn't the best scenes they just spilled out, lol.
    • Armeetapus16
      I recommend you see the 2nd one, it's not just about a guy going nuts with a chainsaw killing dead things, thats the 3rd one. The 2nd is more about a guy trapped in an awful situation and is just trying to live through the night in one piece, and then at the very end he goes nuts with the chainsaw 😛
  • mooreworthy
    Good old fashion nightmare fuel that is.
  • Pretendfanboy
    Sigh.Why can't somebody make a really scary movie? I think by now we are all pretty much desensitized and don't find gory stuff and the usuall jump scare gimmicks really scary.Is it that hard to expand beyond the stereotypes and reinvent the genre?
  • Jimmy Love
    Oh Frelling yeah I knew this would rock! Cant frelling wait.
  • grimjob
    Well, ok, I guess now I'm interested. Was totally against it, hate this era of remakes we're in.They're pointless, but every now and then one of them eeks its way out of the cesspool to offer something worthwhile. I'm hoping this will be one of the few.
  • Carlo
    What I love about this trailer, and the vibe it gives, is that I feel like I'm watching something I shouldn't be. I got that same feeling when I watched the original when I was 13 and haven't had it until now! 😀
  • It looks ok. I just hope they don't try to simply rely on all gore to make this movie more intense. The charm of evil dead wasn't "gore" but rather the creepy and scary suspense and outrageous demon/spirit appearances etc. Gore alone does not make for a good Horror movie.
  • For all the back-and-forthers, you're so vital to the online movie world, thank you so much for sharing your ground-breaking opinions and critiques. So valuable.
    • Cody W
      Might be the most ironic and hypocritical comment Ive ever read on here.
  • TREE RAPE!!!! lol. Every time I see it I can't stop laughing lol
  • acrossalloceans
    i think they should say its loosely based off the original rather than a remake because with that trailer alone, its not the same movie. The original was a classic. Leave it be. And the people putting down e.d.2 and army of darkness are insane. both were INCREDIBLE films filled with true horror, great storytelling as well as a fair amount of humor to keep it balanced. some people just cant appreciate the classics.
  • Horror Industry Alum
    why, why WHY can't Hollywood STOP with the remakes?!?! WHY can't they give some ORIGINAL scripts a shot? My friends down there are struggling to be heard with their cool ORIGINAL ideas for Horror flicks but Hollywood JUST KEEPS DOING THIS SHIT!!! WHY Hollywood, WHY?
  • George Bashin'
    The trailer looks pretty good actually!
