Director Fede Alvarez dropped a bomb on WonderCon audiences during an Evil Dead panel this Sunday in the Anaheim convention center n California.
Back when the red band trailer had been released, We had pointed out some interesting imagery that suggested that maybe the new Evil Dead, in theaters April 5, was actually a sequel. Alvarez confirmed this to the WonderCon crowd, while also adding something major.
He told audiences that an Evil Dead 2 (followed by a planned Evil Dead 3), and the recently announced Army of Darkness 2, will eventually crossover for the ultimate cult horror movie Evil Dead 7, reports Movieweb. So, after two sequels to the current remake – the remake universe will collide with the old “Ash” universe in a film that will amount to be the 4th installment in both franchises.
At this time, Sam Raimi and his brother Ivan Raimi are working on the screenplay for Army of Darkness 2, which will continue the story of Ash as seen in the original The Evil Dead from 1981. While Fede Alvarez might have been joking, suggests the site, who was on hand for the panel, he seemed serious when he said he plans to join both his new franchise together with Sam Raimi’s old franchise.
I don't think I have ever seen so much hype for a Horror movie in my lifetime.
This better deliver!
True dat. The hype for it is just insane.
Finally saw the trailer as of late in theater and I already don't like the coloring of the eyes of the deadites. They don't seem to be evil and vicious enough. The blank white is still the most effective one, imo.
Yeah, I know, let's see the whole thing first.

Outside of you guys the only other people I know who are excited are me, my cousins, and my girlfriend. We watched the first one a couple weeks ago and she loves it and is just as excited as me. She even said it's one of the few horror flicks that scared her. 'Bout time she liked a horror flick lol.

You have my condolences man. You guys in Germany deserve to see it just as early as us Americans.
Thanks. Germans have a long history of delaying blockbusters and highly anticipated films in gerneral. Sometimes the US-Blu-ray is out, when the film hits the german theaters.
A travesty - and Evil Dead is just another victim.
