After mistakenly reading from the Book of the Dead, a group of friends vacationing in the woods unleash demons that possess and kill them off.
It's hard to be a film fan and not love Sam Raimi's 1981 horror movie 'The Evil Dead.' Not only did it kick off the career of one of the great geeks heroes of cinema, it's one of those scrappy no-budget classics that gets over because of the sheer willpower of the director and the ethos that any character can die at any time. It seems like an untouchable classic. But watching the red band trailer for Fede Alvarez's remake 'Evil Dead?' We're sold on this remake.
To get in the mood for tonight's spooky activities. 'Evil Dead' - the remake of 1981's horror classic 'The Evil Dead' - has shown us its re-imagining of the book and cover of Necronomicon ex Mortis. Though it may not be as well known as Jason's hockey mask, or Freddy's knife-glove, it's definitely one of the most memorable props in horror history.
The 'Evil Dead' trailer is finally here! Fans of the upcoming film who attended New York Comic Con this year already got a taste of it during the 'Evil Dead' panel. And technically so did we, as this footage was leaked online thanks to one audience member's illegal video recording shenanigans. Keeping in mind that that version got pulled from the web, here's the official, higher-quality 'Evil Dead' trailer.
A few months ago, Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego was packed with comic book nerds, cosplayers, TV and movie fanatics, and members of the press, all of whom were bustling from location to location trying to see as many events and panels as possible. Though we aimed to give you the best possible recaps of everything that happened during the private panels for 'The Walking Dead,' 'Game of Thrones,' Marvel Studios and the like, it sure would have made our jobs a lot easier to watch them streaming live from our laptops. That's something New York Comic-Con is trying to do better this year.
