At the SXSW premiere of the 'Evil Dead' remake, director Fede Alvarez told the hopped up crowd that Sony Pictures loved the film so much, he was already hard at work writing the sequel. And, when we spoke to producer Rob Tabert the next morning, he told us, "We would love for Fede to do ['Evil Dead 2']."

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.
