After so much has been said (and written) about this remake, this pic feels a bit of a letdown in that it’s hardly any different from dozens of photos released for other, budget, more or less accomplished horror / zombie flicks.
This being “Evil Dead,” one would have expected something a bit more specific like, say, a chainsaw, if not actually the Necronomicon book.
Both were included in the first footage premiered over the weekend at Comic-Con in New York, io9
reports and, yes, both got the crowd on the verge of hysteria.
More in the same “teaser”: lots of gore, the moving branches are back, boils, self-mutilation and, of course, a bunch of kids who are about to live the most terrifying – and final – hours of their lives.
“Evil Dead” drops on April 12, 2013. Here
