Yesterday’s Evil Dead TV spot had plenty of dark humour as we witnessed fans freaking out over the intense trailer for the film. A second TV spot landed last night which heads back to simply focusing on the film itself.
There’s nothing much new here, but I am so excited about seeing this that even the smallest piece of advertising is worth sharing. We do hear the laughable words here that “everything’s gonna be fine”, and man the person who said that will clearly wish they had kept their mouth well and truly shut!
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.
