The first poster for director Fede Alvarez’s remake of Evil Dead has been released, and it makes quite the statement. It looks to be more of a teaser poster than a full theatrical one, but the most striking image on the one-sheet is the following text: “The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience.” That’s one hell of a promise, but judging by the insane red band trailer I’m not exactly ready to write this off as an overconfident statement just yet.

Here’s the synopsis for Evil Dead:
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.
