Creeptastic Super High Resolution Look At ‘Evil Dead’!!

1-Evil-Dead-BEST-hires-Banner

With all of the Evil Dead commotion out of the New York Comic-Con, it was hard to focus on the one tangible thing to come out of the event: the first ever image.

This morning Bloody Disgusting is the first to land the high resolution still that depicts star Jane Levy as a disgusting yellow-eyed deadite from the Fede Alvarez-directed remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult classic The Evil Dead.

In theaters April 12 from FilmDistrict, “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.” Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, Jessica Lucas and (supposedly) Bruce Campbell also star.

    Just another bunch of CGI crap. Compare that image to the deadites in the original series. You just can’t beat the real thing.

      looks far better than the Deadites in the original series.

      I totally understand how you feel. I hate this still as well, but it doesn’t do justice to the actual film. The trailer I watched at comic-con was actually pretty good. And they say there’s no CGI in here, or at least very, very little.

        I hope so, I really am pulling for this film. But we all have to admit that the remakes/reboots as of late have been shameful.

          I think ‘Let Me In’ was pretty good. I mean if the conversation isn’t limited to Deadites only. I’m in good faith that this isn’t going to suck, but I’m quite dubious too, if it will even with the original.

          • TimDuncan86

            Let Me In was decent. However, in terms of American horror remakes (Nightmare and Friday) they have been terribly boorish. The fact that Raimi and Campbell are on board and fully supportive give me high hopes…but we have all been burned before.

    @TimeDuncan86 It’s not CGI, it’s a still photo. You’ll be eating your words when you see the footage.

  • lucie-with-a-gun

    footage sounds insane cannot wait to see.

  • Kroork

    This pic looks amazing! The original is amazing! And the new one seems to be amazing !

    So excite for this movie!!!!!!!!!

    I don’t know why everyone is stating the film is cgi free. The director and Bruce Campbell have both stated digital effects will be used. What they have said is that they have used practical effects more so. Who really cares as long as the end film looks great. The pic does look like it contains digital enhancements. The lips and face cut are vey telling. Personally the pic looks a little too much Linda Blair to me but its too early to properly judge.

    The eyes are all wrong. Deadites are supposed to have all white, bloodshot eyes. It’s what makes them look so dead, definitely a little too much in the Exorcist direction.

    This movie could still turn out OK, I know I had extreme trepidations about the Dawn of the Dead remake and that turned out alright, but like Dawn of the Dead, lightening doesn’t strike in the same spot twice, and the original will always be the best.

    The lack of Bruce Campbell is also a massive detrement.

  • Seth_Adams

    The pic does look a lil exorcist but I’m still excited for the movie itself. If it sucks then we always have the original.

  • Aaron Emery

    It’s difficult to judge just from one still but I’m glad they changed the eyes, the white eyes are a trademark from the original, typically a complete retread is what turns me away from a remake (though Let Me In was phenomenal) and I’m glad they’re (seemingly) going a different route. As for the comment about the lack of Bruce Campbell, Bruce was a staple in the originals, and again if they are making this their own Ash needs not be in it (and Campbell playing any other role would feel wrong and would be distracting) because I don’t want to see the same movie again.

    people already bitching? c’mon this looks awesome just from the pic. i do not feel they are bs’ing us on this being a worthy remake

  • EvilHead1981

    I don’t mind the look of the new deadite. I always believed that The Exorcist set the standard for “demon possessed”. While each “demon” would different cosmetically from movie to movie(Evil Dead, Demons, Night of the Demons), they basically all owe it to The Exorcist.

    That being said, this new deadite sure beats what the earily script described the deadites as having the terribly overplayed “pitch black eyes” that you see being done to DEATH nowadays. Damn you Wes Borland and you starting this crappy trend. LOL!

    I’m actually more curious. Is there a RUMOR that Bruce has a physical role in the film? I thought he spent the last year shooting down the notion. So is it just a nudge nudge wink cameo like Sarandon in “Fright Night”, or would it link the reboot to the original film series? I’d prefer the latter but not counting on it. And honestly, Campbell ROCKS on “Burn Notice”. So I’d rather not have the part be all that big (unless it was quite substantial) than to take away from his current show.
