The official red-band trailer for the Evil Dead remake has arrived!

Oct. 24, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Well, the EVIL DEAD remake red-band teaser is here and it's...the same as the one that premiered at NYCC. That's not a bad thing, it's simply the same thing, just in much better quality. I still kind of dig the bootleg version, just for the throwback nostalgia feel, but it's cool to see the images with a little more clarity as well. The love/hate for this remake is comparable to the Obama/Romney split. There isn't much of a grey area on this one.

Hide your razors:

I'm on team EVIL DEAD remake with this one. I'm always apprehensive when it comes to remakes, but this looks really cool to me. I love the camp and hyper-style of Raimi's original films and they'll always have a special place in my heart, but there's room for a straight scary version for me. I'll definitely give this a go.

EVIL DEAD, starring Jane Levy and Shiloh Fernandez is slated for possessions and tree rape on April 13, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: What old-school scary movie would you like to see remade, possibly with a new twist? I'd love to see an even darker, scarier version of Silver Bullet, which is one of my all-time faves.

I don't understand why poor Brunswic 51 was voted down for saying it looks like a scarier version of Cabin In The Woods. That movie is now fresh in our minds and honestly... it does. Even though Cabin was pretty much a dark parody of all such movies including the original Evil Dead (Even had an angry molesting tree in the elevator) this design of the cabin and the basement is mighty similar. I wouldn't be surprised if they shot this in Canada as well...

Very Cool

Looks like the team behind this movie thought things through and aren't just relying on the 'cult' status of the original. Can't wait.

I think this looks like it could be great. I like the look of it. To all those that say oh its nothing like the original, or there's no humor, it won't be fun...its a teaser trailer, wait for the film itself. But secondly and most importantly, the original was neither fun or funny, at least not on purpose. It was pretty shit, and so over the top..thus making it the "classic" that it is today. I for one didn't really enjoy it. People just seem to consider the sequels which were intentionally

love the originals, but I'd give this a chance - doesn't look like a bad movie in its own right.

I'm digging it

wasnt looking forward to this whatsoever but this is looking dark, nasty and surprisingly good. I'm glad they're not trying to repeat the original's tone although i want a Bruce Campbell cameo!

There's a reason when Raimi finally got REAL money to make another Evil Dead movie - Army of Darkness - he pushed the series much further into the action/comedy genre. Let's face it: big budget horror tends to suck. It always has. Every great horror film in history has been made for a miniscule fraction of the budget eventually given to their shitty remake.
One of the big problems is that small budget films are naturally "dirty". Weaker lighting, weaker film stock, cheaper cameras, more

One of the big problems is that small budget films are naturally "dirty". Weaker lighting, weaker film stock, cheaper cameras, more practical effects, more *home made* practical effects...these elements all lend a feeling of "creepy" to the mood of the film. And it's not like a big budget movie can't replicate those things...it's that they foolishly *avoid* those things in the first place!
Now this remake has had creative input from Raimi and Campbell and they're producing, so who knows if it'll follow in other remakes' footsteps. History says "yes", but I'll withhold judgement in hopes that I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Cheap Thrills!

Looks like the crappy Michael Bay produced horror remakes. Never liked the idea of a remake for this but hoping I'm wrong from judging this trailer, either way I can wait for it till Blu Ray. Plus no Ash is no win for me. Also everybody thought the Total Recall movie looked good, heard it sucked.

gimme some sugar baby

Im in. Look, we are all gonna bitch that this isnt faithful to the original. But we would REALLY be bitching if it simply remade the first one, just with new actors and effects. Face it, remakes make us grumpy. But this is at least passably interesting. No?

Wow, The only thing I could think was Cabin in the Woods. I mean I know that movie is taking from this one but wow, that might hurt the box office.

HOLY FUCK BUCKETS

Now I'll admit I was really on the fence I was so pissed they were remaking my all time fav horror film, after seeing another one of my all time fav horror films butcher so bad A nightmare on elm street. I was like no remake will ever be good. Now after seeing the clean version of the redband of this I am so fuckin stoked. Lots of blood, pretty creepy, disturbing, damn they nailed it, and made it modern yet still not so modern.

I will most certainly check the DVD rip. But I refuse to financially support this remake madness.

Well...

At least Raimi gave us "Drag Me To Hell".

ED was never about the full on gore, it was about the full on gore mixed with an independent attitude and a balls to the wall, utterly mad and energetic camera. Without Raimi's gonzo camera-style (and I don't just mean copying the "possession camera") the Evil Dead series would've been moot.

I am bored

This movie looks far less creative than the original. Looks like more over the top gore with little substance and quality. I will pass and wait for something original.

Bah Not Evil Dead

Well I guess I should really be happy as this looks nothing like the original. Just like more torture porn, and less about one mans fight with his demons.
So on the one hand it makes me happy that this appears to be miles away from the original plot, on the other it pisses me off that they are attaching the Evil Dead title to this when they had unlimited potential and story opportunities to continue with Campbell as Ash. Will not be seeing this in theaters.

I feel like people are upset cause it isn't like Evil Dead 2. Not Evil Dead. In Evil Dead, there isn't a lot of Ash comedy. There is some little comedy spread out. I feel that Sam is just remaking his old film cause he has more money now. This is probably what he REALLY was wanting to make back a long time ago but couldn't. I am glad Ash isn't in this. Ash was Ash back then. To make a new Ash would make more people upset.
I am really liking this, it looks scary, good make up, a lot of good

I am really liking this, it looks scary, good make up, a lot of good violence. I am sure they will have some light comedy spread out. Just think of the things they couldn't show in a red band trailer.

Loving all the haters down voting people who think it looks fun. Looks like it could be fun. But that could be cause I'm viewing it as a bunch of new kids finding the book. No Ash? Not a full remake to me.

Not sold

I've said it before, I'll say it again. While I don't like an Evil Dead remake, especially without Ash, I would be much more okay with it if the entire story and scares were original and unexpected. All they did was switch around the characters and what happens to who, and change the gore content and some of the execution.

The "bootleg" trailer from NYCC really did make this look better. Two, Silverload is completely right and has been completely right with every post about this film I've

This film is NOT imaginative, its color palette is exactly the same as all the other horror remakes, and I saw nothing, absolutely nothing original story-wise or scare-wise (having a girl cutting off her evil arm with a carving knife instead of Ash with a chainsaw is NOT original) in this trailer.

Wow.

I really enjoyed the original, and as sick and messed up this trailer was, it still felt like it had that tongue in cheek kind of feel. Like, even the P.O.V running through the woods felt like the original. I'm so excited for this movie, looks hilarious.

I agree with ElderPredator. In the original the possessed turned into grotesque monsters. In the remake they get pale skin and different color eyes. Yawn. Seriously, the originality of the previous films looks completely lost on this one.

Gore doesn't make a movie, and that is all this trailer sold.

Ohh soo good!!! I hated it when they announced the remake but after the trailer I'm for it 100%. I'm going to make a wild prediction and guess that for some reason I think we'll get bruce campbells Ash in this one right at the very end comign out of a time portal or something (i know i know its the ash fanboy in me talking). Either way its still going to be great.

I'll admit it looks very gory and freaky. However I'll be totally honest that despite the low budget and not so perfected make-up of the original movie, I still think the original possessed characters looked much scarier than in this trailer. We'll see.
