Mark your calendars for April 5 as the FilmDistrict and TriStar Evil Dead remake opens in theaters one week earlier than original planned. Yay!

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 dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

Directed by Fede Alvarez, the R-rated remake stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, Jessica Lucas and Bruce Campbell.

    That’s awesome! I tweeted Bruce asking ( as a joke) if a movie has ever been released before its release date because people wanted to see it so bad. Well I guess today I got my answer and the answer was YES! I know it’s just a week but its still cool!

      yellowsicktoad, if you’re asking that regarding your country, I’m afraid my country will not allow it to play due to graphic contents. For all I know, I haven’t seen the poster at the nearby movie cineplex where I’m living. THAT is the biggest fear of all!
