The first look at Fede Alvarez’s hotly anticipated Evil Dead remake is here, and Sam Raimi would be proud (I know Bruce Campbell is). Sony debuted some footage from the film at this past weekend’s panel at the New York Comic-Con and the audience, in a word, went apesh*t. And now footage from the panel has surfaced. This reboot of the 1981 Sam Raimi classic The Evil Dead, looks nuts! While we’ll likely be getting a high-rez look at this footage soon, even this shaky representation lets us know we should be expecting something intense. Thanks to reader JillKills for the heads up.
In the remake starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, Jessica Lucas and Bruce Campbell, “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.”
Check out the official website and Facebook page. The Book of the Dead is opened on April 12, 2013. Head inside for the footage.
