Evil Dead is a lot like Suspiria in that to take that same premise and put it in someone else's hands really misses the point. A perfect example is Equinox, which has an almost identical plot but is radically different.
You need Bruce Campbell in front of the lens and Sam Raimi behind the lens.
Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash was interesting because Sam Raimi was attached to direct. I think it was crazy enough to work.
The combined weight of the horrors I have authored wrought would crush your carbon hearts into perfect diamonds of terror!
