Well, they certainly aren't what they used to be.

Which is why there is no Ash in this film he's not replaceable. He was also not willing to shed a few pounds just wanted to return as his current self. As far as this film officially being a sequel or a remake that could be debated. To me it's nothing more then an overproduced remake/re-imagined turd.
WTF nonsense is this? Let's see some sources.

Regardless of who produced it the film itself leaves allot to be desired. Would have preferred Raimi directing with Bruce returning as Ash.

Great new interview with Bruce over here that actually explains how the film was made.

Quote:
Were you starting to doubt you'd ever get to revisit this material again?

A little bit. We're getting older and the idea is getting older. Sam (Raimi) is making big movies now and he may not always be able to take the time to do an Evil Dead movie. We're glad that Sam ran into Fede (Alvarez) and what they were working on originally got bogged down. Turns out Fede was a big Evil Dead fan and pitched a couple ideas to Sam that were very interesting. Then myself and Rob Tapert started to pay attention, and he pitched a full story and we liked that, and then he pitched a script and we liked that. We kept liking everything that was happening, and here we are today.

How important was it for you to be one of the producers and how hands-on were you?

Well I was a producer of the first one and so I was a producer on all three of them, so it was just natural that we would all be back again. We really enjoyed it. You have a lot of boring conference calls when you make movies most times, but the three of us agreed it was just really fun to be working together again. We've always had a really good association... and now Fede is the new sucker.

You've said that this one is not funny like the others are.

Nope.

Can you compare...

It's more like the first one. The first one was only funny because it was melodramatic dialog delivered by bad actors.

Are there Easter eggs?

No because the tone wouldn't fit. There's no jokey cameo from me as the ice cream guy going, "Here's your two dollars back. You kids be careful at that cabin." That's not the movie. If it was Army of Darkness maybe -- that kind of tone. No, this is a throwback. This movie scared the hell out of us the first time we saw it.
much more @ link

Trailer looked a little more polished and stylized than I was hoping, but I have to admit, I'm intrigued. Not a "going to see it in the theater" kind of intrigued, though. More of a "I'll just wait for the inevitable unrated, uncensored, too shocking for theaters blu-ray kind of intrigued.

Mikey, I couldn't have said it better myself.

It might be bad too, it's been awhile since these guys have done a good scary horror film. Sensibilities change with age and so does going hollywood. Both Rami and Campbell haven't touched good horror in a long time.

I'd watch this in the theaters no doubt. BUT, it sucks that Bruce isn't in it at all. I noticed they went with a more Demons / 28 Days Later type of eyes for the possessed instead of the classic blanked / whited out eyes.

I don't know, I doubt the Nightmare on Elm Street remake would have benefitted from appearences from Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, and/or Wes Craven. But then again, what the hell do I know.

I think they need to go through and remove all the pupils from those that are possessed. It's one of the things that made the possessed in Evil Dead stand out from the others in my opinion.

At least give us that. lol

Here's a quick photoshop that I did for comparison! LOL

To be honest, I really hate the look of the demons. They were so unique in the original movies.
