A new clip and trailer for director Fede Alvarez’s upcoming remake of Evil Dead have been released online. The clip is incredibly brief as it’s mostly just a bloody set-up for a jump scare, but the WonderCon Announcement Trailer features a few bits of new footage. The film premiered at SXSW last week to a mostly enthusiastic response, with our own Matt Goldberg calling it a “crowdpleaser” and a “gruesome feast” in his positive review. Though some seemed to be put off by Alvarez’s “fan-service” approach with the pic, the critics who caught the film all agreed on one thing: Evil Dead is very, very, very violent.
Hit the jump to watch the new clip and WonderCon trailer. The film stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Elizabeth Blackmore, Lou Taylor Pucci, and Jessica Lucas. Evil Dead opens on April 5th.
