5 New Images From 'Evil Dead' To Tide You Over!

I saw Evil Dead, the Fede Alvarez-directed remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 classic, again last night and it confirmed my feelings about the first screening. Not a perfect movie (some rough spots in the beginning), but once it gets going it’s such a f*cking blast it’s unbelievable – which is why I’ve been calling it a “near perfect experience.” Anyway – here are 5 more pics to tide you over!

Starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore, Jessica Lucas, Bruce Campbell, “five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths 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.

New 'Evil Dead' Poster Has A Different Image But Starts Out Small...

As we’re getting down to the wire there’s another poster for Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead, the remake to Sam Raimi’s horror classic that stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore and Jessica Lucas. I loved the film (my review here) so, while this poster is currently too small to read where the quotes are coming from, I know at least one of them is mine.

[Reader Review] Scorpionsy Compares the New 'Evil Dead' With the Original

The Fede Alvarez-directed Evil Dead played like gangbusters as SXSW earning a ton of great reviews (and a few mixed ones, to be fair). But that’s not the only place it’s been playing – the film is currently on a multi-city tour that is garnering a lot of good word of mouth. BD Reader Scorpionsy caught up with the film on one of its’ stops and was kind enough to shoot us this review – a mixed take on the film that prefers the 1981 original.

If I may, I think Scorpionsy is doing himself a little bit of disservice by comparing every nook and cranny of it to the original. While Alvarez’s film is very much of the Evil Dead universe, it’s not the exact same. Nor should it be. It’s very much its’ own experience. As far as stuff like the make-up being different, that’s a change I appreciate. Far better for Alvarez to do his own thing than fall on the sword of those pronounced ocular cavities. Read my review here. I stand by every word. Then again, it may come down to the fact that the original Evil Dead, IMO, left plenty of room for improvement. But it’s Socrpionsy’s favorite movie, so naturally the remake starts out at a disadvantage for him.

Here's the Best 'Evil Dead' Poster Yet!

I always thought the above image from the Fede Alvarez-directed Evil Dead was the most striking released, and have been consistently shocked that it’s barely been used.

[SXSW '13] 5 Questions With Lou Taylor Pucci From 'Evil Dead'!

FilmDistrict and TriStar’s Evil Dead premiered earlier this week at SXSW, and I thought it was a pretty damn groovy thing to experience with a crowd. Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) is one of the film’s MVP’s as Eric, a sensitive and thoughtful school teacher. He’s the most relatable character in the movie, has all the best lines and takes quite a beating.

In the new rebirth, “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.

[SXSW '13 Review] 'Evil Dead' Is Amazingly Gory And Fun!

FilmDistrict and TriStar’s Evil Dead just premiered at SXSW and I had a total blast with it. It’s pretty much exactly the movie you think it is, but it goes further (and gets wetter) than you’re probably expecting.

It’s even gorier than you’re expecting. I seriously don’t have a clue as to how they wrangled an “R” rating here. Blood, pus, bone fragments, limbs and brains are flung around with playful abundance and the result is both punishing and exhilarating… This film doesn’t condemn its audience, it exalts it – and as a result it’s able to achieve a sustained symphony of carnage that energizes rather than exhausts.

[BD Review] 'Evil Dead' Is A Thrillingly Gory Blast

Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead is most certainly a remake done right. It takes elements from one of horror’s favorite franchises and reinterprets them in the most extreme manner possible for a studio film. It’s very much an attempt to recreate the intended effect of the original for 2013 audiences and, in that regard, it’s almost entirely successful. Built from the ground up like some perverse mainstream blockbuster, it might very well be the first “event film” aimed squarely at the heart of those who’ve been craving blood for all these years.

After the rapturous reception at tonight’s premiere, I was a little surprised to see some reactions on my way home that took the film to task for being “fan service.” Of course it’s fan service. 100% percent. In many ways, the 1981 original was fan service as well – the product of a bunch of young horror nuts whose debut film was a love letter to the genre itself. Of course the difference here is that the remake is a love letter to a pre-existing franchise, but it never falters in its giddy exploration of that world. The Evil Dead movies have always been about fun – a bloody sandbox in which characters are tormented in relentlessly inventive ways. I’ve never found a lot of higher meaning in the franchise, so I’m not sure what some of these folks were expecting to find here.

Evil Dead isn’t perfect. After an intense opening, the film struggles to find the right balance of pathos and humor as it introduces its main characters. These kids aren’t headed out to a cabin in the woods to smoke weed and get laid, they’re trying to help their friend Mia [Jane Levy] detox from heroin. At this point the movie can’t quite decide if these characters are stock or unique, and in trying to have it both ways a few of the exchanges fall flat. I admire the fact that the Alvarez and co-screenwriter Rodo Sayagues [along with Diablo Cody] are reaching for something interesting here, but one of the things they sacrifice in their ambition is the summery ensemble chemistry that so many of these films benefit from. Levy and Lou Taylor Pucci are consistently great throughout, but it takes about 20 minutes for the other three characters to warm up.

And that’s pretty much the end of the film’s problems. After things kick into high gear Evil Dead becomes absolutely unstoppable. If you’ve seen the trailers, this is exactly the movie they’ve been selling all along – and somehow it still manages to surprise. For one, it’s even gorier than you’re expecting. I seriously don’t have a clue as to how they wrangled an “R” rating here. Blood, pus, bone fragments, limbs and brains are flung around with playful abundance and the result is both punishing and exhilarating.

Even better is the film’s sense of escalation. There were literally moments where I felt like I was flying with joy. I’m obviously the target audience for something like this, but it’s been a long time since I got a charge so perfectly pitched between catharsis and repulsion. Stripped away from any sense of moral obligation, the violence and cruelty of Evil Dead is intriguingly warm hearted and comforting, probably because it stems from the film’s overriding need to please you. This film doesn’t condemn its audience, it exalts it – and as a result it’s able to achieve a sustained symphony of carnage that energizes rather than exhausts. By the time the film hits its climax – during which the sky literally rains blood for the entirety of the final battle – I was sort of wishing it would never end.

It’s also something you should see in a theater. While I’m sure I’ll get a lot of replay out of the eventual Blu-ray release, this is something you need to experience with your fellow horror comrades. You’re going to want to share this. You’re going to want to hear your friends laugh, scream and utterly lose themselves. This is your Avengers, this is your Avatar, this is whatever you’ve been wanting a “big” horror movie to be for over a decade. Not a perfect movie, but a near perfect experience.

Evil Dead is a f*cking blast.

Breaking: Fede Alvarez Begins Work On 'Evil Dead' Sequel!

The past week all we’ve talked about is Sam Raimi writing Evil Dead 4, but now we’re shifting gears back to the rebooted franchise.

While the TriStar and FilmDistrict remake doesn’t hit theaters until April 5, director Fede Alvarez revealed to a sold out SXSW crowd that he’s already begun writing a sequel to his Evil Dead, starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore and Jessica Lucas.

The film just World Premiered at the film festival in Austin, Texas, as we’ve been retweeting all of the reactions as they come in. Negative reactions? Don’t see any, yet.

So, with Fede penning an Evil Dead sequel, and Raimi working on Evil Dead 4 with his brother Ivan, could these worlds end up colliding? That thought just blew my mind. READ MORE

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. READ MORE
