Sony have been tweaking their 'Evil Dead' one-sheet somewhat to add to its visceral impact. The poster now incorporates a larger logo, some text shifting and recolouring as well as a complete red tint overhaul. And we have to say its damn effective and will have no problems standing out amongst its genre competitors this April. The Fede Alvarez helmed horror remake stars Jane Levy ('Suburgatory'), Shiloh Fernandez ('Red Riding Hood'), Jessica Lucas ('Cloverfield'), Lou Taylor Pucci ('Carriers') and Elizabeth Blackmore and will be shattering theatres with true red-blooded horror once again this April. Thankfully the production was under the watchful eye of Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell and we're hopeful for something a bit special. Check the new poster below.
"Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist's tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths 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."
'Evil Dead' opens in the US on 5th April and here in the UK on 19th April.
