This Trailer For The 2013 Evil Dead Remake Is Excessively NSFW

Remaking a classic is always a dangerous endeavour, especially when it's something as cult as Evil Dead. Fortunately, this new take has original director and writer Sam Raimi's approval, so it's about as legitimate as an Evil Dead remake can get. Well, as legitimate as it can get without Bruce Campbell.

Much like recasting the roles of Han Solo or Indiana Jones with someone other than Harrison Ford, slotting a new actor into the Ash role would be the definition of madness so instead, the remake will feature entirely new, low-profile, chainsaw fodder including Jane Levy (Suburgatory, Shameless), Shiloh Fernandez (Jericho) and Jessica Lucas (Friends with Benefits, Cult).

An article on First Showing states that Raimi is on-board as producer, with Fede Alvarez (Panic Attack) as director. Both had a hand in writing the script, with the first draft penned by Juno and Jennifer's Body writer Diablo Cody.

Going by the trailer, it looks to have the most memorable scenes from the first film, including that, uh, notorious one with the vines. If you saw the NSFW tag and were hoping for nudity, well, you're going to be disappointed. What it does have is crazy amounts of blood, gore and gratuity, so much so even the most hardcore of horror lovers will shudder.

According to IMDB, the film is set for release in Australia on May 2, a couple of weeks after its April 12 appearance in the US.

    Golly horror and gore has really hit new limits ... just needs 3D.

    So the plot devices from "Cabin in the woods" without the intelligent background story then. Ooookay.

      @Banefire - You are aware this is a remake of a movie from 1981 and follows the basic plot points of that movie, yeah? And that Cabin in the Woods took part of it's inspiration from the original Evil Dead? During the white board scene you can see "Deadites" and "Angry Molesting Tree", both from Evil Dead.

      Intelligent background story? For "Cabin in the woods"??? Ooookay...

    I loved Evil Dead but this looks too full on for me.

    I don't mind a bit of horror, but I've seen most of the saw films and all of the hostel films. I'm over the gore factor.

    Sanitised beyond recognition.

    Nice !!!

    Just one small problem, it's not scary... :\
    They need to watch some classic horror to learn the difference between scary and shocking.

    Whoa man. Not the groovy evil dead I remember.

    It's an abomination of nature to make an Evil Dead remake. There will ALWAYS only be one Ash.
