A number of new pics and captures have been smattered online from the upcoming gruesome thrill ride redo ‘Evil Dead’. With Fede Alvarez lensing and a capable round up of young talent including Jane Levy (‘Suburgatory’), Shiloh Fernandez (‘Red Riding Hood’), Jessica Lucas (‘Cloverfield’), Lou Taylor Pucci (‘Carriers’) and Elizabeth Blackmore in front of the camera. There’s a lot expected of it from looking at the teasers and trailers to date and especially as Sam Raimi, Bob Tapert and Bruce Campbell, the legends behind the original version of ‘The Evil Dead’ from way back in 1981, are still behind the scenes in a producing capacity. It arrives this April and the new selection of pics (shown below) come courtesy of Sony, Horror-Infos.com and Empire.
“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.
