First ‘Evil Dead’ TV Spot Takes In Your Horror!

edm-1

FilmDistrict and TriStar’s Evil Dead has unveiled its first TV Spot, just in time to kick off our Evil Dead Month. It’s mainly a collection of viewer reactions to the trailer, but we’ll take it! Meanwhile, expect our review of the film to hit the evening of March 8th after I see it at SXSW!

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 and Jessica Lucas.

Check out 10 facts about the new Evil Dead, as well as our set reports. Evil Dead hits theaters on April 5th – head inside for the spot!

      I’m very jealous. SXSW has not only got EVIL DEAD but also YOU’RE NEXT, S-VHS, and SPRING BREAKERS.

      I live in Minnesota where we don’t have 1 good film festival. And it’s snowing up here right now….it’s fricken’ snowing.

    I STILL go nuts, when I see the green band trailer on the big screen, because it gives me a taste of the experience I can’t wait for next month!

    Haven’t seen it on TV myself, but that’s a cool spot!

    Haha that was a funny and creative was to do “audience reaction” CANT WAIT FOR THIS

  • Aaron Emery

    Too quick and poorly edited. I do like the concept though, it’s definitely a more believable and realistic approach to the “audience reaction” than the usual phony PARANORMAL ones that we see. Is it April yet?

    BD, i’m surprised you guys hadn’t posted this yet! i love that in this tv spot i’m linking that they have new intense footage (especially from Lou Taylor Pucci) but with NO new spoilers! how rare is that these days with too many films pretty much showing you the entire film (plot points/character deaths/twists/etc)!!

    • djblack1313

      OOPS, i meant “THAT HAS NEW FOOTAGE!!!!!” (not “no new footage!!!”). lol.
