Empire have revealed an exclusive new image from Fede Alvarez’ Evil Dead remake, and we have it right here for you to gawp at. The image see’s poor old Jane Levy (again) in some serious trouble as she appears to be hiding, only for a blade to come through the wall and nearly take her face off!!
Empire also caught up with Alvarez, who had this to say about the new approach to Evil Dead:
“The very first question we asked ourselves was, ‘What is a relevant way to tell the story today?’ and then, ‘Why would a group of people lug themselves up to a cabin in the middle of the woods?’ ‘Just for fun’ didn’t cut it for me – I wanted to do something more interesting, and so the drugs intervention plot came from that, and it just kicks you into a more interesting story straightaway.”
But never fear! “Even though you’re trying to be grounded, it’s still an Evil Dead movie: one minute they’re dealing with real things, ‘real’ problems, and then suddenly that book shows up…”
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.
