I couldn't possibly be any less excited about this whole idea.
Raimi and Campbell on the remake:
Eh, still not feeling any enthusiasm. Maybe I'll check it out when it hits cable.
yeah... not excited anymore. at all. man this sucks.
Evil Dead remake like television set on honeymoon... unnecessary!
"to help her deal with her sobriety issues" ?
Oh, geez... :lol:
Being an Evil Dead fan I'll likely check this out but I'm not expecting to be blown away by it, not one bit. Many factors against it - never heard of any of the actors. Never heard of the Director but I'm guessing he's another music video graduate trying to get his foot in the door. I'm tired of these wannabes coming in and "reimagining" everything. And what's with Raimi & co. dismissing their early masterpiece, almost apologizing for it like its some kind of embarassment? Hey, Raimi, you're making (or endorsing) mostly junk these days. Every single one of your Ghost House productions have stunk. Stop making PG-13 garbage for 12 year old girls
If someone put the original in your hands for the first time, wouldn't you have the same complaints?
Well, in the latest article, Raimi says it will be "R" or stronger.
I have the same knee-jerk reactions as everyone else to the idea of a remake, but let's not lose sight of what made the original great--raw, unheard of talent and a no-holds-barred gore. It sounds like Raimi is legitimately trying to recapture that here. We'll see, of course.
Jesus, Bruce Campbell is excited about the effects being 10 times better than the original...
Not too difficult...
Even though I read that it will be "at least an R rating", I won't believe it until I see it.
The Ghost Rider sequel pre-release interviews said the same shit, "it will be a hard R", then it comes out PG-13. This will probably join it, it's what the studios want and they get what they want.
But an unknown cast isn't necessarily a bad thing. Who knew anyone from the original before seeing that? I just fear the producers caving to studio pressure to get young asses in the seats, and for that they cut to PG-13, far too fucking often I should add.
I'm on the fence for this one. If it comes out R or unrated I might try it at the theater. PG-13 I'll wait for the library or just skip completely. Weary about "sobriety issues" though, horror films are more fun when the characters are getting fucked up before getting fucked up.
I'm more excited after reading this although, I hope it has a scary/creepy element and is not just total gore. Evil dead is my fav of the original trilogy due to the fact that it was more horror than comedy/gore. I hope this is a horror movie and not a horror comedy.
You all know this is going to suck anal asshole. I realize that gesture may arouse a few of you, sorry.
So, basically, Sam and Bruce are just gushing about how its effects are much more polished than the original. Excuse me, but I have never really felt that the effects of the 30 year old original were so awful. I mean, they were actually incredibly impressive for the budget and made it much more fun than it might have been otherwise.
I'll get it on Netflix but that's about it.
I don't know, looks pretty dam good to me.
this could be one of the best remakes ever!!!
It looks bloody and gory...but meh, it also looks too polished.
They had to omit the character of Ash, but tree rape was mandatory I see.
I'm still debating how angry this trailer made me, but it's still a huge relief that Diablo Cody got bumped out of this. I could only imagine how awful a hipster-ironic Evil Dead would look in comparison to this over budgeted, polished one they are dishing out to us.
I'll watch it.
so diablo cody didnt write it then???? if so that's a for ure win win situation me thinks
if every remake ever has taught us anything, its to approach these things with expectations firmly in check. just remember, you only saw about 1 minute from a 90 minute movie. thats a lot of unseen minutes where shit things can happen to ruin any promise you see in the trailer. i'm optimistic too, but lets not get crazy.
anybody else think its a little ironic that they make you watch an ad for sinister before you're allowed to watch the ad for evil dead? If i'd looked for the sinister ad on youtube, would it have shown me the evil dead ad first? i'm voluntarily subjecting myself to your advertisment, people! give it a rest! ...fucking youtube.
