The image of Jane Levy scared out of her mind while crawling through the woods has been a key image for the Evil Dead promotional campaign. Not so much used by the makers of the film though, the image has instead headlined hundreds of website posts (including here), and it is strange how the rather chilling image has not been used yet for a poster design.
But wait, what’s that? A new Russian poster has been released which features… wait for it… that shocking image! Check out the poster below, complete with photoshop blood removal!
Directed by Fede Alvarez, Evil Dead has been written by Alvarez, Sam Raimi, Rodo Sayagues and Diablo Cody. Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”) as Mia; Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood) as David; Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) as Eric; Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) as Olivia; and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) as Natalie all appear, and Bruce Campbell is also onboard as a producer with Sam Raimi.
The Evil Dead is due to arrive in UK cinemas 12th April 2013.
In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
