Exclusive: ‘Evil Dead’ Cast Talks the Grueling Shoot, the ‘Evil Dead 2′ Plot and More
Star of the original ‘Evil Dead‘ (and producer of this remake) had one thing to say to the new cast as they prepped to begin shooting: this is going to be miserable.
Between the prosthetics, the contact lenses, the running, the screaming, the getting vomited on…there were some long days on the ‘Evil Dead’ set for sure. We talk to the ‘Evil Dead’ cast in this exclusive video about the worst part about filming, what makes it all worth it and what they know about ‘Evil Dead 2.’
It was a long night and an early morning. We met up with the cast – Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore – the night after the film’s world premiere in Austin, TX. Let’s just say that not everyone went to bed on time. The cast and crew were out celebrating the raucous reception to their film and rightfully so. The audience cheered and gasped and shouted and, some, couldn’t take it anymore and had to head for the lobby.
Over some coffee (lots of coffee) the next morning, we sat down to talk about ‘Evil Dead,’ tree rape and we badger them for details on the sequel.
