I’m not sure who created the art, but Bruce Campbell tweeted a hilarious new one-sheet for Evil Dead, which boasts “If you don’t go see the Evil Dead remake in theaters no one will ever make Evil Dead IV.”
There’s probably a bit of truth to the fan made poster, and checking out the Fede Alvarez-directed reboot in theaters April 5 can go a long way in telling Sam Raimi you want more from the Book of the Dead. We vote with the all mighty dollar.
Evan Dickson is lucky enough to catch the remake starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, and Jessica Lucas at SXSW tonight. We’ll report back with a massive thumbs up or down, although I suspect the former.
“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.”
