The first TV spot for director Fede Alvarez’s horror remake Evil Dead has been released online. There’s not much new footage to be found, as the TV spot’s focus is on audience reactions to the film’s incredibly bloody red-band trailers. Fans of Sam Raimi’s original film are likely already sold on at least checking out the redo—Raimi and Bruce Campbell were intricately involved as producers on the film—so this TV spot seems aimed squarely at young moviegoers who have no idea who Sam Raimi is but sure do like those jump scare movies like Paranormal Activity. The pic is set to premiere at the SXSW Film Festival this weekend, so expect to hear first reactions soon.
Hit the jump to watch the TV spot. The film stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Elizabeth Blackmore, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Jessica Lucas. Evil Dead opens on April 5th.
