I’ve watched Evil Dead and its sequel many, many times. The two movie are the perfect examples of cult classic movies. Didn’t really do too big until it’s release on VHS, DVDS and downloads. Bruce Campbell as Ash was incredible. The perfect mix of tongue in cheek, smart ass and bad ass.
I’ve always thought, how would a remake fair if it was done, and now that is a question no more. As it looks like this time around they plan on giving this remake a darker feel then the original. what makes me happy is that Sam Raimi let Bruce have something to do with the film, so that brightens my outlook on it. Will it be the cult hit like the first…we’ll just have to see now won’t we.
Until then…enjoy the trailer
