The Cinematic Katzenjammer: The Trailer Park: Evil Dead

The Trailer Park: Evil Dead


The Evil Dead is a movie that one would consider untouchable when it comes to being remade. It's unique, it's scary, it's full of so much awesome, and has Bruce Campbell, a legend in his own right. Well, a remake had been announced awhile ago and I continually hoped that it would get canceled or delayed until it died. I was worried that it'd be a generic horror movie with a bit of blood and gore and nowhere near as good as the original. Then Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell came forward with their blessings, stating that the new film is the perfect remake to their horror classic. 

Below is the new trailer (very, very NSFW) and I must say... Holy Motherf**king Shit. In just two minutes alone I am more than completely sold. Evil Dead is now a movie I cannot wait for nor contain my enthusiasm for. I want to throw every penny I have at this flick and watch it over and over. The gore. The blood. The violence. The TONGUE! Hot damn this movie looks to finally introduce the states to the over-the-top gore-porn that makes European and Asian horror movies so damn memorable. Evil Dead has the balls to go places I feel we have not seen before. 

This year's Cabin in the Woods proved that we're wanting a smart horror movie and Evil Dead looks to take that idea and run with it, while pouring buckets of blood over everything. Director Fede Alvarez looks to take on his first full-length feature with all sorts of gory glory and I cannot wait to see what his final product looks like. Starring Jane Levy (Suburgatory), Shiloh Fernandez, and Lou Taylor Pucci (who's amazing in The Music Never Stopped), Evil Dead hits theaters April 12, 2013. 

Here's the very R-rated red band trailer:

Dude... this looks INSANE. That end shot with the girl licking the knife is going to give me nightmares. It's also cool to see Lou Pucci as the lead, I didn't know he was in it.

OH Hells yes Im seeing this. Now this is a well done remake that doesn't shit upon the original

Yeah I know right! I think I saw on Reddit or somewhere, when people were comparing the casts of the original with this one, with both times the people being practically complete unknowns. That makes me even happier because it's a movie that turn them all into stars and even horror icons for a couple of them.

And yes, that knife part makes me cringe.

I think it's actually written by Raimi himself as well. And like I mentioned, Campbell gave his blessing. So yes. Can't wait.

I am intrigued to watch the remake more so than before seeing the trailer, so it's clearly done its job - but it would just be *much* better as a 'sequel' as opposed to an outright remake.

That's true. I think it was originally announced as a quasi-sequel. So who knows.

Cool!! Even though I am not a HORROR Fan, in fact I run away from horror, this is a film I would watch as it looks bonkers!!

Indeed it does! Very over-the-top!

Diablo Cody is also credited as a screenwriter too. I have no problem with that
