Those attending the New York Comic-Con may want to mark their calendars for Saturday, October 13 as the Sony Pictures panel will host first ever looks at both the Carrie and Evil Dead remakes.

Appearing in person for the Evil Dead panel are Producer (as well as the original Ash himself) Bruce Campbell, star Jane Levy (TV’s “Suburgatory”) and director Fede Alvarez. “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 long-dormant demons that possess each of those friends in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.” FilmDistrict will release in theaters April 12, 2013.

Appearing in person for the Carrie panel are Chloë Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore and director Kimberly Peirce. “A reimagining of the classic Stephen King horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.” Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, Carrie is directed by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Screen Gems will release in theaters March 15, 2013.
