I follow a number of my friends who are the East Coast, reading their tweets as they ran through the obstacle course that is the New York Comic Convention and was surprised to hear a ton of positive feedback for the EVIL DEAD remake that will be making its way to the screen next year. I wasn't there to see what was so exciting about it and surprisingly enough, even though I work for a movie website, I try to keep myself as uneducated about remakes and reboots as possible. I prefer to be honestly surprised, not built up to a surprise over the 8 months from the first leak of images from the set to the release of the film. Jane Levy
has been getting a lot of attention for being her generation's version of Claire Danes' angst-ridden suburban teenager on the show "Suburgatory," but with all of the die-hard love for the original, is she enough of a draw to get you to want to watch the movie? I've been more impressed with Shiloh Fernandez as an actor, although I'm not going to say that Jane isn't a cute girl. Your thoughts?
