I’m really vibing with the insanity coming out of the red band trailer for the Evil Dead remake. It looks all sorts of brutal, and most importantly it feels like its own entity. The further they get away from hallowed grounds with this “remake”, the better. I know some will proclaim that this sort of distancing is heretical, while tugging their stiffened enraged fan-glands through their shorts, but I respectfully disagree. I’d rather they carve their own path. Out of flesh and sinew.
I wouldn’t have expected loving this trailer as much as I do. I thought the flick would be some shoddily remade nonsense, but the whole thing thunders with a brutality I can get behind. Watch the thang, drop your thoughts in the comments section.
