Evil Dead 4?

7 years agoby:

I unfortunately missed the Universal panel at Comic-Con this year, which means I didn't get to see any of the footage of from Sam Raimi's upcoming horror film DRAG ME TO HELL. From what our man Jim Law says (with backup from Ammon Gilbert), the trailer was terrible but the clips kicked ass. Weird that they couldn't get a trailer that was more representative of the film. Anyway, you know that Raimi can't make it through a Comic-Con panel without being asked about a new EVIL DEAD film. This time Raimi threw the fans a bone saying that the project is "in the wheelhouse" and that he and his brother Ted are currently tossing around ideas for a fourth EVIL DEAD. Now it's unclear if he's talking about the supposed EVIL DEAD remake or if this is a Bruce Campbell starring third sequel to the original EVIL DEAD. Either way it looks like some form of EVIL DEAD is on the way and hopefully it's not yet another DVD to fleece horror fans of their money. So which would you rather see? An EVIL DEAD remake or EVIL DEAD 4?

Extra Tidbit: Though most people forget it, the original film was actually titled THE EVIL DEAD.

PS

Sam Raimi needs to tackle horror again. Unless he does another super hero like Flash or Captain America!

Leave it alone

Evil Dead is done. The ultimate low-budget flick that inspired us all is perfect. Sam, Bruce and everyone else moved into the mainstream after this and the DVD has been released for the 1st one so many times I can't keep track. ED RIP - thanks for the scares.

Evil Dead 4 please. Hopefully it would be more in spirit of the perfectly balanced Evil Dead 2 than the overly slapstick Army or the overly serious Evil Dead 1. If the script is honest about Ash/Bruce's age, it could be great.

I'm pretty sure Raimi said he was going to get with his brother Ivan, not Ted, to gather ideas for a new Evil Dead flick. Ivan's the writer, Ted is the actor, or more specifically Hoffman from the Spidey series. Haha, say what you will but Hoffman is the shit.

Hopefully if Sam and Ivan can write a good treatment, since they didn't do too well with Spidey 3.

REMAKE! Bruce is too old and fat.

BUT, if he can get back into shape for a fourth one....then so be it!!

Either way, I want my Evil DEad fix soon.

Evil Dead 4 and I agree with everyone else...only if Bruce stars and Sam directs. No more senseless remakes please.

EVIL DEAD 4!

Bruce Campbell kicks ass and Raimi has the pull to put him in a starring role in a wide release horror now... I think... Which would be great! Remakes are rarely good... Sequels are only good if the original creative talent is there, so it would have to be done with Sam and Bruce... And Ted is also great, I wish I saw him in more.

hopefully, they can make it on the lines of Evil Dead 2 so we can get a mix of horror and comedy.

NO Bruce, NO dice

Bruce Campbell is God.

Would you make the Bible without God?

I didn't think so.

I don't think we need either of those. We have a decent trilogy already, probably one of the best horror franchises ever made. Another sequel, or just the idea of a remake, is unnecessary and not something that appeals to me as a fan of the series.

I'd like to see a sequel and not a remake.
Please make it a serious horror film and keep the humor to a minimum. Better yet, leave the humor completely out.

Campbell must return!!!!

meh... I don’t know. There are way too many variables to make a solid decision on this. I am sure joblo will keep everyone up to date with any info. I defiantly need more to make a proper opinion.

I'd love a great sequel, but I also don't really need one either. I'm pretty happy spending my Halloweens watching the entire Dead trilogy and just enjoying it as it was.

Def. NO remake. But if they do a forth one, please stay away from all the humor. Go back to the horror. And yes, Bruce has to be in it otherwise it will not be a true Evil Dead Flick.

Evil Dead 4

I'd be up for an Evil Dead 4 ONLY if it stars Bruce AND Raimi directs. It's just not the same without those 2 at least.

I seem to remember Raimi saying in an interview before Spiderman 1 was released, that if it made enough money, then he would be able to fund Evil Dead 4. Anyone else remember hearing something like that?

Evil Dead 4. I heard Raimi was looking to produce not direct the remake. Fuck that shit. I don't want a remake. The original is perfect. The current generation of kids need a 4th one to turn them onto the original trilogy. Everyone wins. I agree Bruce has to return or it wont be the same.

Bruce + Sam + Evil Dead 4 = Awesomeness.

Thatīs pretty much the formula.

I'd love to see an Evil Dead 4. But if they do decide they have to re-make the original, then there's only one way to do it without it not being awful... base it on the musical. I'd love to see an Evil Dead the Musical movie. I'm sure that'll never happen though.

That's a good news. But it's got to be Bruce Campbell and his Chainsaw hand.

An Evil Dead 4, natch!! I will choose to ignore the " too late for a fourth movie " rants which will no doubt start to appear everywhere probably right up until the film's release. I'm pretty stoked, and of course Bruce will come back...he has to :D

No Bruce, no deal...in my opinion.

Not that they probably couldn't do something moderately interesting with a remake but without Campbell they'd be loosing a hefty majority of the already established audience.
