The official website for Fede Alvarez’ Evil Dead is now open, so best you head on over to check it out. You have to log-in through your Facebook account, and the website can take a little while to load, and I’ll tell you why. The website incorporates photos and recent posts from your Facebook account onto images and writings as you explore the website. It is quite a cool gimmick, but a little creepy too.
The site boasts some wonderfully authentic music, and when you are in you can explore different rooms of the cabin in the woods, with each room showing trailers, images, ringtones and Twitter skins. Go on, enter, you know you want to!
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.
