Well it looks like it might be quite disturbing. Doesn't make it any less pointless, mind you.
Evil Dead was about the humour, the OTT effects, the unseen evil in the forest, the amazing chase scene around the house but most of all about Ash. This looks like it could be disturbing but surely they could have just used some of the ideas and called it something else? I find this quite upsetting actually as the ED frnachise is one of my all-time favourites
I've had to let go of the idea of remakes ruining the original, so am not as precious about Raimi making the same mistake. Would still have preferred them to leave it alone.
Let's pretend it didn't happen
Looks like all of those lumpen Platinum Dunes remakes that Michael Bay has been funding for a decade or so, nothing more, nothing less. So, pointless, then. I certainly am sick of every 'horror' film getting the same bullshit digital intermediate colour job as well, all shiny oranges and flouro greens. Trailers are often a terrible way to judge a film as their job is to emphasise the most 'saleable' elements, but this looks pretty obnoxious.
would be slightly more excited if it wasn't an Evil Dead remake, which is completely pointless, since a lot of what makes that so great cannot be replicated
eg Bruce Campbell
pisses me off. As slavestate said, the glory or ED is the effects and Bruce Campbell's performance....grr
