New Evil Dead Images Showcase Bloody Females And A Demonic Tree
For his first feature, director Fede Alvarez chose to climb a mountain rather than a molehill by pulling Sam Raimiís cult favorite The Evil Dead from its well-preserved grave and giving it the reboot treatment. Without Raimiís signature camerawork, Bruce Campbellís jawline and the originalís maniacal tone, this threatens to become just another horror remake, but the filmís posters prominently display the grandiose tagline, ďThe Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience,Ē so perhaps itís best not judge this Necronomicon by its coverÖyet.
Thanks to Filmofilia, seven new images have reared their bloody heads online, with a few offering a behind-the-scenes look at the production. For those blissfully unaware, Evil Dead focuses on five twenty-somethings who find the Book of the Dead in an old cabin, and unwittingly awaken all of the demons in the surrounding woods. Itís like Cabin in the Woodsí brasher, more insecure older brother. If youíre wondering what the cast looks like within the shadows of that cabin, youíre in luck.
Doomed interchangeable character role call! Jane Levy (Suburgatory, Shameless) plays Mia. Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield, Cult) plays Olivia. Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood) plays David. Lou Taylor Pucci (The Story of Luke, Carriers) plays Eric. And Elizabeth Blackmore (Legends of the Seeker) plays Natalie. And now that everyone is acquainted, letís see what these ladies look like in peril.
That last photo reminds me of just how few tree rapes there have been in cinema in the past thirty years. Here are a few on-set photos, complete with a little more blood for those with the insatiable thirst.
Just when you thought that spring would be hitting its least scary stretch, Evil Dead, written by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues with Diablo Cody, will possess theaters nationwide on April 5, 2013.
