NYCC trailer for The Evil Dead remake has leaked...blood, everywhere

Oct. 16, 2012by:

WARNING: NSFW footage (gore and language)

Well, it was only a matter of time, I suppose.  Seems like THE EVIL DEAD remake trailer from NYCC is making the rounds and while we always prefer the official HD version, sometimes the anticipation is just too high.  In truth, it's a credit to the film itself.  So, with that, we have the leaked trailer of THE EVIL DEAD in all its bloody splendor, which almost benefits from the bootleg feel.

Get some band-aids ready:

I don't know...I'm a major fan of the original series, which will always stand on its own feet.  That said, after seeing this, I think there's more than enough room to bring an updated new vision to the big screen.  This looks downright bloody nasty and that's a damn good thing.  I know there will always be staunch haters and that's fine.  That goes for any remake and I can dig it.  If someone remade DIE HARD, no matter how good that shit looked, I'd be up in arms well into its DVD release.  But, sometimes, I think things can come together.

I'll leave it at: This looks damn promising.

THE EVIL DEAD, directed by Fede Alvarez and starring Jane Levy, Jessica Lucas, and Shiloh Fernandez, opens on April 12, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Between this and Carrie, I think there are some solid "date" movies on the horizon for 2013...

Well then call this my Die Hard

Because no matter how good it looks, I'm gonna hate it. And that's just how it is.
I mean come on! Bruce isn't dead and he ain't retired! Neither is Sam! There is no good god damn reason that they couldn't make a sequel!
Things that bother me about this aside from that: it looks too pretty. I'm sorry, but half of what made the first two so charming and gruesome was the fact that it was shot on 16mm, with improvised camera work and awesome workaround that can only happen when you have a

I'm sorry, but half of what made the first two so charming and gruesome was the fact that it was shot on 16mm, with improvised camera work and awesome workaround that can only happen when you have a limited budget. I like the FX I saw, but I don't think that will make up for how clean the camera is.

who is going to the sequel?

Because a female chops her arm off, but a guy wields a chainsaw in this trailer. Only Ashe did those things in the original. So it seems they are twisting the original story in that sense. Two survivors at the end of this movie?

I really don't care if I sound like another person ranting about remakes and I should just "get with the times." I want everyone involved with this remake to read this. FUCK. YOU.

It looks awesome to me. But I've only seen the original once long time ago. So I barely remember what happens, which means I can't compare and judge. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing.

Wow

A second retelling of the same goddamn movie. I love the originals, but is this necessary? Now, don't get me wrong, I do enjoy SOME remakes as long as they're done right or that bring something new to the table (John Carpenter's 'The Thing' anyone?), but this looks like Evil Dead, done almost shot for shot (in most aspects) to bring up nothing new. It's like the 'Psycho' remake all over again. Hopefully this brings some sort of promise to us fans....but it's still not needed.

Read the script for this - it is NOT going to disappoint. How it looks in the trailer is only scratching the surface of what I read.

HOLY FUCKKK

Ok so far so good. I like how they kept the old one with some stuff the chainsaw, the tree vines, the camera POV. Even the car :) This feels like a very good remake thus far with some modern twist :) this and carrie so far look like how remakes should be. And it didn't look like much CGI at all :) straight up nasty blood none of that CGI shit ;)

There's some definite promise here. I personally think the original Evil Dead is one of the most important horror films ever made (it's my favorite of the trilogy for sure), but I'm still looking forward to this.

This looks great!

I loved the original, it was a great mix of humor and flat out horror. To just have a carbon copy of that would be an insult and people would be bitching that it didn't live up to the original. This is a similar feel but a different approach, I'm looking forward to it!

Every scene in this trailer is from the original films. It's already a carbon copy without the heart. It's already an insult.

How about instead of a copy we get an original film?

I guess you havent seen Evil Dead or maybe your memory is kinda going faulty but this is the oppisite of carbon copy. I dont know how an evil dead fan can look at that and go "that fucking sucks."

With the exception of the possessed people overly mutilating themselves, every scene IS from the original movies.

I don't see how anyone can call themselves an Evil Dead film and actually be okay with that trailer. But then again people seemed to love the trailers to all the shitty Platinum Dunes remakes, and they called themselves fans. Evil Dead is a horror/comedy and always has been. This is like getting a self serious Ghostbusters remake that tries to throw out the comedy.

The best thing about the Evil Dead was the sense of humor in all three films. Even the gore was played for laughs. The Evil Dead was like a Buster Keaton film lost in a Lovecraft nightmare. The first film wasn't as looney toons as the other two, but the humor was there in spades. If these films took themselves seriously then they would have lost the charm that enabled them to endure.

Not only does this remake lose the humor, but it also seems to have lost the unique monstrous deadites. Here

Not only does this remake lose the humor, but it also seems to have lost the unique monstrous deadites. Here it looks like everyone is being possessed by The Exorcist demon. One of the things that made the Evil Dead stand out was that the possessed turned into grotesque monsters. In this remake they look like every other demon possession from nearly every demon movie out there.

This remake misses the point and Raimi is cashing in. People didn't love Evil Dead for the blood splatter. People loved it for its quirky and unique nature. The story was never original, it was the execution.

As I said before...

So this is basically all the best bits of the trilogy put into one film and Ash is a female? Will I see it in the theaters? Duh. But do I really WANT to see it? Not really.

And yes, this DOES have the same generic remake look aesthetically going for it. The only thing I can say I truly dig is that it looks like they're going for that 1979/1980 design with this, and that there are a few new scares on top of everything. But come on... when you've seen the scare once already, you've seen it

Looks good... for a generic horror in a cabin that was already spoofed by Cabin in the Woods. From the trailer I gather that the remake takes itself waaay to seriously to carry the name of Evil Dead.

I want to like this but I can't get around no Ash. It's like Superman with no Superman

Or Batman without a Joker. :P
That character defined those movies. Otherwise it's just horror. Evil Dead was more than just horror and if this isn't over the top insane then it won't be worthy of the title. They certainly don't look like they had as much fun making it as the original team did.

Im just going to add that I agree with Paul here that cause its a bootleg trailer it makes it even look better. I wouldnt be suprised if this leakwas approved by the studio, it would make it clever marketing. I'm actually suprised it hasnt been pulled yet if it wasnt by the studio themselves.

If you remember in the first evil dead everyone died as well including Ash, the fogs gets him at the end. When Sam made the original they never planned a sequel until it did really well.

Wow. Much like the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake, the director appears to be making the movie in his own vision and damn it looks good. Plus with Bruce and Sam behind it, I definitely support it as they're vision was considered.
