Just a few minutes ago I received an e-mail from an anonymous tipster who claimed to have found a bootlegged trailer for Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead remake, which just wrapped production in New Zealand. It’s going to take more than filming a monitor to get one past me…
Not only is the word “director” misspelled, and title incorrect (there’s no “The” in the title anymore), but these aren’t the actors in Film District’s demonic reboot that actually stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, Jessica Lucas and (presumably) Bruce Campbell. We also checked in with Evan who tells us this looks nothing like what was on set when he visited this summer. (Update: We also checked with the filmmakers who confirmed it’s a fantastic fraud.)
With that said, the fan-made faux trailer is awesome, and I really want to share it with you! It’s absolutely brilliant stuff that’s so precise in its mimicking of Raimi’s directing style that it’s obviously made by an uber-fan. You can watch it below and then speculate as to what we’ll see when the remake hits theaters April 12, 2013.
