Is New Evil Dead Trailer the Most Terrifying Thing You’ve Ever Seen?

When it comes to a remake, the key to quality is taking the source material, staying faithful to it and attempting something new at the same time. It’s a tricky formula to get right, which is why remakes don’t often top “Best of” lists. From the looks of the latest Evil Dead red-band trailer, however, director Fede Alvarez is trying to do just that. While the skeleton of the story remains the same — a group of young folks stumble upon the Book of the Dead in a cabin in the woods and unleash demonic entities who like to screw with them — but instead of focusing on a male protagonist (Bruce Campbell in the role that made him famous), this time Jane Levy takes center stage as both the tormentor and tormentee.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis from Sony, Ghost House Productions and FilmDistrict:

In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

We’ve seen a poster proclaiming Evil Dead is “The most terrifying film you will ever experience,” a teaser and another full red band trailer for the film, but here’s another one to test your mettle.

Evil Dead, which stars Levy, Jessica Lucas, Shiloh Fernandez and Elizabeth Blackmore, opens April 13.

    God forbid to make something original, no let’s just recreate a flick and turn it into a GORNO snuff film.

    These things are ALWAYS so horribly dumb, predictable, hokey and ANYTHING but scary. Anyone over 15 who actually gets scared by these movies I have to wonder about. Vomit and fake blood is about as scary as…..vomit and fake blood. PASS!

    I think it looks good.
    I’m thinking of it as a new film, and not trying to compare it to the original though.
