Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures outfit are busy in post with their new ‘Evil Dead’ remake. And although details and assets are sparse to date Screen Gems have kicked it all off by revealing the premiere image from the production and were good enough to do so at this months New York Comic Con. The image, which features one of the dead peeking out from the basement at the cabin will be very familiar to many. Jane Levy (‘Suburgatory’), Shiloh Fernandez (‘Red Riding Hood’), Jessica Lucas (‘Cloverfield’), Lou Taylor Pucci (‘Carriers’) and Elizabeth Blackmore all star in the remake. Head below for the new image.
“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.”
‘The Evil Dead’ opens on 12 April 2013.
