Although a lot of people’s knee-jerk reaction to the idea of remaking The Evil Dead has been less than positive, that fact Sam Raimi’s been involved has given many pause to wonder whether it might end up okay. Now the first teaser has arrived, which largely seems designed to show that the elements from the original people loved will still be present, and there’ll still be plenty of blood, guts and gore. It certainly looks a lot shinier than Raimi’s original, but there’s plenty of promise here. Here’s the synopsis: ‘In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.’ It’ll hit cinemas next April.
