What's surprising about Fede Alvarez's reboot of 'Evil Dead' is that it's currently got a fresh rating. As both a horror movie and as a remake, that's rare that a film like this isn't torn to pieces. Perhaps that will change after more people get a look at it (it premiered at SXSW, and we gave it a good review), but still. Here's a new clip from the movie.
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.
