Slightly teased in the mind-blowing trailer premiere (watch it inside), Bloody Disgusting has landed an exclusive look at the second official still from Evil Dead, the Fede Alvarez-directed remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult classic The Evil Dead.
If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, you’re unaware of the madness that’s unleashed when the Book of the Dead is recited from (again). Some of the footage is absolutely horrific, which is why the following image premiere is so perfect. What you’ll see below is star Jane Levy with the most terrified expression I think I’ve ever seen on film. Clearly, something mortifying is approaching.
Says Alvarez, revealing a minor spoiler that’s displayed within the trailer: “That’s Mia seconds before loosing her tree rape virginity…” The scene is an homage to Raimi’s original where Cheryl (played by Ellen Sandweiss) is raped by a tree.
In theaters April 12, 2013 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 and Jessica Lucas also star.
