See the Logo for the EVIL DEAD Remake

A remake of the 1981 horror classic The Evil Dead is in the works over at Sam Raimi‘s Ghost House Pictures.  This news met a mostly wary reception from fans, but the project has a few points in its favor.  Raimi and Bruce Campbell—the director and star of Evil Dead—are on board along with original producer Rob Tapert.  Raimi handed off the project to newcomer Fede Alvarez, probably the smart move to introduce a fresh voice to the material.  Additionally, Diablo Cody (Juno) was brought on to revise Alvarez’s script, which bodes well for a crackling script.

Ghost House unveiled the logo for The Evil Dead at AFM today.  Rather, the logo for Evil Dead, no “the”.  The initial announcement referred to the project with the full The Evil Dead—I am curious to see if the “the” is gone forever.  (This is the minutia that interests me.)  Hit the jump for the official synopsis and to see the logo in high resolution.
