2nd ‘Evil Dead’ TV Spot Boasts Previously Unseen Footage!!

edm-4

Just after the 1st spot hit, FilmDistrict and TriStar’s Evil Dead has premiered the second tube teaser. It’s a good time to have Evil Dead Month, isn’t it? Instead of audience reactions, we actually get some new footage this time around! 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 am anxious as all hell to see this flick, but I will watch no more teasers / tv spots / trailers, I want the movie to be somewhat unknown to me, hate seeing way too much. This flick looks so badass, cannot wait.

  • horrorking95

    I too have decided not to watch this or any more footage from the Evil Dead. I’ve built up enough anticipation with the green and red band trailers, and I don’t want to see too much more! I can’t wait!

  • Kenzo

    Same here. No more TV spots for me. This film looks incredible, thanks to the red band trailers! The lighter trailers are fine too, but I don’t want to see anything new until I see the movie it’self … still wish we could see the full thing in the theater and not a special cut for people who can’t handle the greatness of the movie.

  • BabyJaneHudson

    Haha, sounds like everyone is on the same page – so excited, but I was saying to myself as I clicked on this link “must stop watching these”! I feel like there are still plenty of surprises left, but yeah, I want to savor each one.

  • djblack1313

    i will try with you guys to not watch any more footage. i’ve read the script so already know how and what is going to happen but i don’t know how much they’ve changed things (for example the tree/vine attack was not in the script i read, yet it’s in the movie). i’m just addicted to anything related to this movie! LOL. i can’t wait!

    • Scorpionsy

      Djblack1313…I hear you man…but I cannot withhold my hunger for whatever news, information etc. I can get about this movie.

      By the way, do you have a link where I can get my hand on the script that you read? I will read it after watching the movie when it comes out…as I like to compare what was kept and what was left in too. Thanks :)

    Fine?
    Fine?
    Does that dialogue sound, fine?

    Love it – a nod to Evil Dead 2.
    Groovy.

    Can’t wait. Can’t wait. CAN’T WAIT.

    enough with the teasers. WHERE DO I GET THE RSVP CODE FOR THE ADVANCED SCREENINGS??????????? just in-box it to me, I won’t tell anyone. it’s between me and you BD, me & you!

  • WalkWithMeInDarkness

    Like everyone else, i can’t wait for this movie,and i’m trying to avoid these tv spots. But i have to say that i don’t for one second buy the line in the poster “the most terrifying film you will ever experience” and i’m sure alot of others don’t, either. Maybe one of the most awesome movies i’ll ever experience, but the trailer got me extremely excited, it didn’t freak me out or make me think “wow, that’s gonna be scary”. Not trying to be negative, but i think most of us have become pretty hard to freak out with movies these days.

  • WalkWithMeInDarkness

    Like “Martyrs” for instance. No offense at all to anyone who loves that movie, but to me, it felt like one of those films where they were just trying way too hard to shock and for that reason, it didn’t shock me at all.

    • Scorpionsy

      I know exactly what you mean, man. I feel the same way but only the First Evil Dead movie..the original and maybe Evil Dead 2 (minus the dark humor), and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original and 2003 remake) were the only movies in recent history that freaked or scared me.

      The last movie to scare me was Ringu and the US remake The Ring. That is it…I have become too desensitized to get genuinely scared. That is why I am REALLY hoping that the 2013 Evil Dead brings back that feeling to me again or as close as can be to that feeling…it is my last hope really.

      • WalkWithMeInDarkness

        Both those Texas movies freaked me out to when i first saw the, but i didn’t see any Evil Dead films til i was already an adult, so they didn’t have the same effect. For me, the ending to The Mist was a pretty big shock and The Strangers was a movie that freaked me out, but both of those are, like 5 of 6 years old. I’d love to see a new horror film that makes me go, “Oh my God, I can’t go to sleep!”

        • Scorpionsy

          Yeah the older you get the more desensitized you get towards horror movies. One of the movies that freaked me out when I was a kid was John Carpenter’s underrated horror movie The Fog. When those ghost appeared through the mist with glowing red eyes…that was creepy and also the scene with the piece of wood that just started getting wet and dripping water all of a sudden.

          I am hoping this new Evil Dead just at least attempts to be original in it’s aim to terrorize viewers. I want to see something genuinely original and scary.

          • WalkWithMeInDarkness

            I hope it turns out to be what you want it to be. What we all want to be. This and Maniac are two movies i’m stoked for.

  • WalkWithMeInDarkness

    And I completely agree about wanting something genuinely scary and original. I won’t lie, Insidious kind of freaked me out, but to me, that movie is like a modern day Poltergeist, which isn’t a bad thing. But i’d love to see some kind of new horror story unlike anything we’ve seen before. Don’t expect to, though.
