Evil Dead remake to be as dead, a little more evil

When news broke that the classic horror film The Evil Dead was going to be remade, fans all over the world were, well, horrified. However, when Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell jumped on board as producers, horror aficionados changed their attitude to a nervous wait-and-see. A few weeks ago, Jane Levy was announced as the female lead of the remake. The actress talked to The Insider about the new Evil Dead and explained that the remake will be darker in tone than the original. “This one is really different. They’ve changed it a lot, but it’s still a pretty gory movie,” Levy said. “I think the humor in the first one came from the special effects of the time. I don’t know that they meant it to be funny. . .This one is not funny. It’s definitely dark.” Bruce Campbell, star of the original film, agreed. “You can expect to have a damn scary horror movie,” he said. “There’s no Ash character — the Evil Book is going to torment a new set of kids. So it’s a remake or a re-imagining or a re-whatever word you want to use. It’s going to be re-scary.” ~Rodrigo Cockting
