They’re remaking Evil Dead.
But before you diehard fans of the original freak out, know that “they” isn’t some heartless Hollywood producer. Both original writer/director/executive producer Sam Raimi and original star/executive producer Bruce Campbell are involved in the remake.
Still, watching the trailer above, you have to wonder if the low budget aesthetic and independent appeal of the original won’t be lost in translation. What makes the Evil Dead awesome if not its humorous spin on special effects?
I think the answer is the acting chops of Bruce Campbell. Let’s pray he makes a damn good cameo.
