Movie HYPE: Evil Dead

Release April 12, 2013

I would be lying if I said the news of the Evil Dead remake didn't have me skeptical by default, but as we get closer and closer to the release I am finding myself excited and optimistic; and frankly I cannot seem to be able to stop watching this damn trailer.  

The first thing that is made obvious is that this movie is not going to have any of the slapstick humor that made Evil Dead II such a classic.  Realizing that there will be no laughing taxidermy in sight is a tough pill to swallow at first, but it is necessary to remember that the original 1981 Evil Dead was a pretty straight shooting horror film.  It didn't have the physical comedy or the one liners of its sequel, it was gunning for balls to the wall, no holds barred, complete over-the-top terror.  Sure there are some laughable moments now, but they are the result of the nonexistent budget and dated material; hardly intentional.

That is why this remake is starting to seem very much worth looking forward to.  If it picks up that same go-for-broke pursuit of being legitimately terrifying, but update it with modern effects and money to spend…this could be the movie that makes movies scary again.  

Thank you for reading!
