"Millions are reacting." Screen Gems has released the first 15-second TV spot for the Evil Dead remake, directed by Fede Alvarez, arriving in theaters in April. We've already seen a few bloody trailers for this horror remake, produced by both Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, so why not a new TV spot. It already has an impressive amount of buzz for a film that I thought most people would despise, but that's because the footage looks good. Though the first question I have when watching this - when did they get people to record their reactions? They're watching the red band trailer, but did they just borrow these from YouTube? Enjoy!
Here's the first TV spot for Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead remake, originally found on Bloody-Disgusting:
Update! We've added this second Evil Dead TV spot via Bloody-Disgusting with more new footage:
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 Pictures and Screen Gems will be releasing this new Evil Dead in theaters on April 5th this spring. Planning to see this?

Well this was lame, don't care for the fake reaction marketing angle.

Exactly! They had a ad campaign where you were supposed to record your reaction to the red band trailer.

I wish they were advertising that they used no visual effects. That should be communicated to audiences as something that more filmmakers should be striving for. At least in the horror genre.
