Green-band trailer for Sam Raimi's Evil Dead remake is just as effective without the gore
A new green-band trailer for the Sam-Raimi-produced remake of EVIL DEAD has surfaced and is every bit as effective as the red-band trailers. Sure, the gore and scares combined make a strong argument for the film, but I think this green-band trailer does a fine job of selling the goods without giving away every bloody vomit, tongue slash, chainsawed limb, and tree rape sequence. It actually gives a tad more narrative structure, rather than an onslaught of horror violence, which could work in its favor if the producers want to bring in more than just gore hounds.
Director Fede Alvarez's film has certainly captured my interest from what I've seen thus far, ultimately chaning my mind from it being "just another remake" to potentially being something worthwhile. In the end, a green-band trailer was always going to be necessary for mass audience appeal and I think this one does the trick.
"We're gonna get youuu...":
Seeing Jane Levy finger-tapping the floor and staring at us with those wide, creepy demon eyes is an image I could do without thinking about before I got to bed at night, so kudos to the production for already making such a normally lovely creature into a deadite from hell. So far, I'm looking forward to seeing what the remake has to offer.
Oh, and one more thing...
