A new green band trailer landed over the weekend for director Fede Alvarez’ highly anticipated horror remake, Evil Dead, and its a beauty! Now, with the trailer being labelled ‘green-band’ this means it had to cut down the violence, but we have already seen plenty of that in the previous full length and teaser red band trailers.
This new trailer makes way for some more footage, and relies more on atmosphere and tension than the all out grossness we have seen in the previous trailers, and just might be all the more better for it. It is nice to see that while the intention with this remake is to really upset viewers with its graphic violence, there is also the intention to “scare the shit out of you” and this new trailer proves that everyone involved has clearly achieved that. The trailer is menacing, chilling and downright scary, and this remake is going to be one hell of a ride!
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.
