For his first feature, director Fede Alvarez chose to climb a mountain rather than a molehill by pulling Sam Raimi’s cult favorite The Evil Dead from its well-preserved grave and giving it the reboot treatment. Without Raimi’s signature camerawork, Bruce Campbell’s jawline and the original’s maniacal tone, this threatens to become just another horror remake, but the film’s posters prominently display the grandiose tagline, “The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience,” so perhaps it’s best not judge this Necronomicon by its cover…yet.

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. It’s like Cabin in the Woods’ brasher, more insecure older brother. If you’re wondering what the cast looks like within the shadows of that cabin, you’re 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, let’s 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.
