Back in the early 1980s Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and a bunch of their friends drove out to an abandoned cabin in the middle of the woods in Morristown, Tennessee to shoot a horror movie. Due to an extremely low budget, they could really afford anything to give their little project much production value, but what they found they could do was douse as many scenes as they could in gallons upon gallons of fake blood. And that spirit is kept very alive and very well in the upcoming remake. Don't believe me? Just watch the newly released red band trailer.

Set to be released by TriStar in April, a brand new preview has been unleashed online and I only have a two word response: Holy. Shit. Check out the trailer below and you'll understand why.

Produced by Raimi and Campbell and written and directed by Fede Alvarez, Evil Dead begins when a group of friends decide to take their drug-addicted friend (Jane Levy) out to a cabin in the woods so that she can detox and start rehab. Searching around the place, however, they discover a strange book called the Necronomicon. What they don't know, however, is that by reading the book out loud they have accidentally released an ancient evil back into the world and it starts taking them down in extremely gory fashion. Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore co-star in the horror flick, which will be in theaters on April 12th.
