Director Fede Alvarez Just Gave an Interesting Response When Asked if His ‘Evil Dead’ is a Remake



For years, horror fans have debated whether Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead II is technically a sequel or actually a remake – for what it’s worth, Bruce Campbell himself recently called it a “requel,” while we’d simply call it, well, a clear cut sequel – and interestingly enough, fans have also spent several years now debating the very same thing about Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead.

Is the 2013 version of Evil Dead (which finally now has its Unrated Cut available on Blu-ray!) truly a remake of Sam Raimi’s original, or is it a sequel that takes place in a world where the events of the previous films did indeed happen? As many have pointed out, Ash’s iconic Oldsmobile does appear as an Easter egg in the movie, suggesting it’s not quite a remake.

Alvarez himself just provided a pretty interesting answer to this question on Twitter.

He tweeted, when asked if his Evil Dead is a remake or set within the same continuity as the original Sam Raimi films, “It continues the first one. The coincidences on events between the first film and mine are not coincidences, but more like dark fate created by the evil book. (Ash car is still there rusting away).”

So there you have it. Whatever you want to call it, Evil Dead ’13 is one hell of a horror flick!
