Sony has released a new red band trailer for director Fede Alvarez’s remake of Evil Dead. It is the most red band trailer I have ever seen. It is messed up. I can’t go anywhere near this movie when it opens on April 12, even though I like Jane Levy and this looks like a fun, wicked role for her. But if you are the type of horror fan who can watch a girl lick the blade of a knife to slice a fork in her tongue, Evil Dead is for you.
Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Elizabeth Blackmore co-star. Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell have given the remake their blessing as producers. Watch the trailer after the jump.
Sony created the site DareToShareYourScare.com that lets you record your reaction to share. The trailer justifies the dare, but it’s another piece of the bold marketing campaign that claims Evil Dead is “the most terrifying film you will ever experience.”
Compare with the first trailer here.
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.
