The 2012 NYCC Panel has some good information on it:

Bruce Campbell shows up there and if you watch that video you'll see a still or too.

Interview with Bruce about it...

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/movies/news/a399642/bruce-campbell-on-evil-dead-remake-ive-seen-it-its-fabulous.html


“There’s none of the original characters. We didn’t want to compare apples with apples. It’s a contemporary movie – just like Evil Dead was contemporary in 1979, this is contemporary for young adults now. It’s basically five new kids who are going to have a really bad night with a brand new director – Fede Alvarez, who was handpicked by Sam Raimi. I’ve seen it already; I think it’s definitely fabulous.”


We’re really excited and really behind it, [but] it’s going to take a bit to get the Evil Dead fans behind it. We know we’ve pissed a lot of them off. We appreciate that and we appreciate their anger and their zeal, but the only thing we want to impress upon them is that we didn’t screw it up. This is going to be just as memorable as [the original] Evil Dead without being the same movie”


“You don’t want to remake something shot-for-shot. I can’t believe they remade Psycho – what the hell kind of a waste of celluloid is that? It’s a creative medium.

“The nice thing is the film looks beautiful. The effects are 10 times better than we ever had access to and the actors are all better than we were in 1979. Though granted Sam Raimi is a mad genius, so we got a crazy result like Evil Dead out of this amateur enthusiasm sort of thing.”

CAMEO from him???


I’m not at liberty to discuss that. But the thing is we want it to be a standalone movie. You’re going to have some references [to the original] in there and there’s going to be things the fans will enjoy as far as familiar aspects, but it’s a whole new ball game.”

“I’ll be honest with you, I don’t know if I could – the last one was 1991. I was a virile young man; I’m 54 years old now so I’m not sure 54-year-old guys need to be doing that s**t anymore. But if Sam wants to lace the boots back on and do something that makes sense, that’s fine. We may need to do the movie one day, if our careers fly off the tracks and we crash and burn, we might look at each other and go ‘Let’s make an Evil Dead movie’!”

I'm not convinced! If it's such a "creative medium" why do they feel the need to re-make an old film instead of coming up with some creative ideas for a NEW movie. :thm:

Saying the cast is hotter (as Campbell states in the video), or that they're better actors doesn't mean shit as a justification. Neither does pointing out the updated effects. It's not as though the fans of the original had a problem with any of that. Thinking that lightning will strike twice with this remake is foolish in regards to creating a "new classic" - if the original doesn't connect with new audiences simply move on and make something new*. Gussying it up with sexy young actors and newer FX won't make a bit of difference in making this stand up to the first films, at least not in the eyes of most.


*Of course though, doing a remake means not only tapping the segment of movie goers that will check out most new horror flicks in the theaters, but also those who enjoyed the original, whether they approve of a remake or not. Why make only $20 million opening weekend if you might be able to bump that to 25 or 30 by pulling in the curious doubters?

It'll also allow them to re-release the original films... again. To cash in on all those new fans that the remake will bring in (whether it's good or bad is kind of irrelevant in this regard).

Yeah, I have to say the trailer looks pretty cool.

But then I don't have the remake allergy that a lot of people seem to have, so I'm sure many will feel different.

It doesn't look bad to me. But then I will wait to form my opinion till I see it.

sukebanboy
10-24-2012, 09:41 PM
Obviously going for the full-on horror for this remake...which is strange because Raimi's original was improved A LOT by the "charm" of the movie...which was that it wasnt dead-serious in tone....

Once again, no need to call this EVIL DEAD if they are going for straight up horror...

sukebanboy
10-25-2012, 12:42 AM
Just watched the trailer again......

not sure, but it seems like they have made the demons (or possessed people) crawl around like SADAKO from RING.....If so, I think that may be a BIG mistake....and why is the demon at the end cutting her tongue???....Trying to show off how tough she is???????WTF happened to demons who just got on with their job of killing you instead of showboating....??

Ian Jane
10-25-2012, 10:27 AM
There's a bit of showboating from the demons in the first two Evil Dead movies if you think about it. Ash gets taunted a lot and then tend to toy with him a bit.

That was my thought exactly -- reminds me of old-school hucksterism. I approve.

Well, I think the producers may have had their tongue in their cheek, but I don't know that it frequently came across any different in the ads. I wouldn't say the Evil Dead ad looks any more sincere than say:

Too many high-tech sound and editing tricks. :)

To be honest I think that you pretty much described Raimi's style with that one sentence!!:biggrin:

Not bothered how they do it...as long as it is scary....Not sure there wil be anything ORIGINAL in the new EVIL DEAD movie...but as long as it is well done and made by people who care...it is all i ask....

Toyboy
01-04-2013, 10:35 PM
The new trailer has a modern Euro-horror vibe to me, like MARTYRS style horror.

Earlier in this thread, after the first trailer hit, I said it looked "like a horror movie", which was my vague way of saying it looked like every other American horror film from the last 10-15 years: pretty people, flash cut editing, "edgy" cinematography, etc... This new trailer feels like something else though. They hooked me with this one.

Marshall Crist

Yeah, hopefully it's not all just the trailer cutter's stylistics, cos I'd like some of that vibe to be carried over. I didn't exactly have the knives out or anything, but I think this is looking great based on that. Fingers crossed.

Mark Tolch
01-05-2013, 12:05 PM

Honestly, more so than the original EVIL DEAD I'm seeing DEMONS inspired stuff in there. That last bit with the girl slicing her tongue especially gave me that feeling; goopy and rubbery (albeit with plenty of CGI), but with a darker aesthetic.

We shall see.

The MPAA slapped this one with an NC-17 rating, so it will be cut down to an R for theatrical release.

http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3215492/evil-dead-has-received-an-nc-17-fede-is-honored/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

It's a pretty safe bet it'll get an uncut DVD/Blu-ray release, but that's not been confirmed yet.

Saw films are major studio releases and isn't Evil Dead Remake from a smaller studio? MPAA has always been tougher on small studios.

Ian Jane

AOD was R over here...

I also find it odd, in this day and age, when you can watch a girl jam a Volkswagen up her ass doing a google search (I haven't looked), that a movie can be rated NC-17.

Alex K.
01-28-2013, 09:16 PM
Does it really matter anymore? The MPAA allows so much shit these days that the idea of a cut version is laughable at best. This isn't the 80's or 90's anymore. At most a few seconds will get cut and you just have to wait 3 months for the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy with those few seconds and some B reel material thrown back in.

Toyboy
01-28-2013, 10:02 PM
...and I still think it's absurd that they'll cut something to get an R for theaters, where images and sounds are experienced in fleeting moments, yet the home video version is where you can see and hear it all, over and over and over, in slo-mo, reverse and/or freeze frame.

The MPAA is useless.

It's true. If some psycho is going to obsess over the gore or whatever, you're right - they're more likely to do it at home in front of the TV or computer where they can basically do what they want with the media. In the theater, it's literally a case of blink and you'll miss it. The whole thing seems backwards to me.

Yes. Yesterday morning (http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/03/03/sam-raimi-explains-exactly-whats-going-on-with-evil-dead-4/) he was asked about "the announcement" and here was his quote:


Those guys made me say that. I am thinking about it but a crowd goes "Come on Sam, do it!" so I said "Okay, I guess I was talking to my brother about it." But I feel like I was pushed into saying that, a little bit. In the hallway today I joked with Ivan [his brother] "Get working on that script!" but I really don't know. I'm afraid that every time I talk about it people get really mad at me when I don't follow through with it. I would like to work on the script over the summer, that much is true. But the reason to come back and do it again is only that they're making me, those fans.

Ian Jane

Lawrence P. Raffel (aka Crazy Larry P aka Jewish Horror Guy) from Fear Net saw it at SXSW and says:

"Ok, EVIL DEAD, no spoilers. It's good, really good. Almost achieves DEAD ALIVE splatter status in the third act. Haven't seen a studio released gore-fest like this in a looooong time. More creepy than scary and I took issue with a few stylistic choices, but overall, meets or exceeds expectations. A solid update and definitely recommended!"

I trust him on these things. This bodes well.

sukebanboy
03-09-2013, 09:52 PM
Yeah..the few reviews i have read say that on the whole they have done the original justice by not fu**ing up the franchise....Most mention that they had a longer than usual production time so they could get the practical effects up to a level where everyone was happy....The director also said he would like to make more in the series....

Interesting. Now I'm really curious.

Where did you read that only a few frames were cut to get an R rating? I do hope this isn't all a ploy to simply get everyone to buy the DVD.

Fede Alvarez notes frames cut by the MPAA:

We didn't butcher any scene or anything. We just had to trim. We took out frames here, You know, when she cut her tongue, we were showing a lot. You see the tongue, you get to see the tongue moving. Probably there was a version where we showed more frames. We've cut about 20 frames here, that kind of stuff, where you take that out and you get your R rating.

Saw this today...didn't think it was scary but it did get fairly intense at times. Like a lot of recent horror films, the characters don't make much of an impression and you don't care what happens to them. It was very gory though, lots of mutilation. It naturally pales in comparison to the original, I can't see this becoming a cult classic but it's worth seeing I think. The ending was weak.

Thats enough for me......a remake that is worth a watch is pretty rare these days.

I knew it wouldnt touch the original....Different time, different place.....but am glad that the director at least had his heart in the right place and gave it a shot...

The gore delivered, but gore does not make a movie automatically good for me.

The bit after the end credits was kind of a slap in the face...

Was kind of cool seeing it with Don May, Jerry, and Michael Felsher though...

What's the story with you watching it with Don, Jerry, and Michael? Just curious.

I agree with your points though. The faux-Ash character had the personality of a brick. A shame because I liked how it opened but it didn't do anything really different to separate it from the original.

We were all at Cinema Wasteland...Ran into Don and he let us know that they were showing it at the theater near by and that they were going, so I got tickets at went...the group discussion afterward was funny...as we're the discussions with the other folks who went at midnight...

Agreed.....I guess they kinda get points for not doing a shot-for-shot remake, but that's really about it. I don't like the characters, I think that the backstory is kinda lame, and I didn't find it frightening or tense, or anything. Granted, the original is held in pretty high regard as far as I'm concerned, so this had some big shoes to fill....I dunno.

I was saying to my girlfriend, the original has no backstory...not really...as the characters drive up to the cabin. They chat a bit, have a close call ,and then get to the cabin and have dinner...between the toast and the "Party Down!", you become more familiar with the characters than the attempt at development in the remake.

The biggest thing I find with these remakes is that they get these kids....is it just because they don't want to pay real actors, so they give some kids 5K a piece and tell them that they're going to be movie stars? Seems like they show up in one movie and you never see them again. BEtween that and the directors, who seem to have no individual style....they're just kicking out clones of each other. This one couldn't decide if it was a clone of the Exorcist, Texas Chainsaw, Ju-On...or The Evil DEad.

I guess I would've found it more worthwhile if it wasn't 50 bucks to go to the movies these days, but that's really about it. As Tom said, the gore is there, but i'm not gonna get a boner because they used prosthetics for some of the effects instead of CGI.

Collider (http://collider.com/evil-dead-2-sequel-fede-alvarez-interview/) posted an interview with Alvarez that mainly focuses on today's DVD/Blu-ray release BUT which also offers some details to the sequel that is already in the works.

"How’s the work going on the sequel? What stage are you guys on that?

ALVAREZ: We’re discussing. We’re still talking with Sam about it and trying to figure out what we should do. Maybe because I’m a child of the 80’s, but for me a sequel is a story that follows the previous one, and sometimes if you haven’t seen the original then you don’t understand the second one. Like Back to the Future 2. If you haven’t seen the first one, you’re not going to get anything out of Back to the Future 2. So that’s kind of my ideal sequel – a movie that continues the story, takes one character and moves on, and moves forward with that character that survived with the first one. That’s what I want to do. But the reality of the industry today is that the sequel is just the same concept, but with a new bunch of characters. That’s the reality of Final Destination or Saw. Generally it’s a new bunch of characters and you play with the same concept again. But I don’t think, personally, we should just get a new bunch of kids and throw them in the cabin and open the book again. So that’s what we’re trying to- were just going back and forth about what is the reality of the market and what kind of film should we do."

More at the link. I watched this last night. About what I expected. Full review soon. The Blu-ray is of pretty fantastic quality.

Boy, I tell you what, people friends...throw away your rubber book-face editions, your $55 (Canadian) VHS tapes and your ability to not be afraid because this remake has everything the so-called "original" did not:

A DOG!!

A DEAD DOG THAT BLEEDS MOTOR OIL!

DEAD CATS!!!!!!!!

TWO VEHICLES!

A LONG-HAIRED MAN IN GLASSES SEEN READING NOT ONE, BUT TWO BOOKS!!!! WHAT A BOOK WORM!!!

CLEANER, FRESHER LOOKING CLOTHES; RECENTLY PURCHASED!

BARBED WIRE (like you see on cool arm band tattoos, only this time wrapped around an overly art-directed "HEY! THE OPENING CREDITS TO SE7EN WERE RAD" book)!!!

PRETTY, SAD-EYED YOUNG PEOPLE!!!!

PISS-STAINED CHUCK TAYLORS!!!

I watched this in Portuguese so that it more closely resembles a Brazilian scat video, only not half as enjoyable. I don't envy the poor interns that had to whittle down all those tree branches in order to make the forest more EXTREME!

Bad acting,..Bad rections to situations.....Dumb story...Dumb ending(s).....the "you thought they were dead...but not yet" type bits...Not scary....not fun.....Not filmed with any kind of energy....DUMB after credits bit..

i could go on...but I am too angry!!!

ALSO, Raimis DRAG ME TO HELL was 100 times better than this...and more EVIL DEAD than this film will ever be!!

I actually thought it was reasonably scary in spots. And fairly well acted on the part of Jane Levy.

Drag Me To Hell was rad though. More rad than this. No argument on that point. And the after credits bit was fucking lame.

There you go. In spite of my snarky post I'm not angry either, but close to it if only for the fact that there was nothing to get excited about either way, good or bad. Watching the extra about the rigors Jane Levy was put thru I felt sorry that all the effort was for blah. The Steve N. Kingz ballyhoo from the original kept playing in my brain while watching this and there's nothing "ferociously original" about this one and there should have been. This should have been balls to the wall insanity and instead it felt watered down and pointless.

EXACTLY....

EVIL DEAD WAS a benchmark in horror.a real genre kickstarter.......this was not even GOOD compared to movies today....

Even the bloody SONG that the demon sang was shit in this remake....arms and legs being cut off and no one dying of blood loss....No chemistry between the actors....and the passages of the book COULD have been good...if they didnt have a lightweight Kurt Cobain wannabe reading it....the tape recorder was 100 times more effective in the first......

DRAG ME TO HELL was 100 times better than this coz it had the ENERGY of RAIMI pummeling it along....enough to overlook some flaws.....This remake though thought it would work if they had more gore, had the demons SWEARING (wow...how scary)..and recreated soem bits from the original (not caring whether or not it made sense to the story or not)

Oh...I am not reallyl angry...just annoyed they made THIS after all the years of waiting for part 4....If this is the best they can come up with...glad they didnt make a FOURTH..

I dug it. I don't think it was ferociously original though. I thought it was going to be complete shit, to be honest. In some ways (though not all, and I consider Dawn weaker than Night and Day) I think it works better than Romero's movie. I can't say that about the ED remake.

Toyboy
08-03-2013, 02:57 PM
Fair enough. I'll rephrase the question then - has there been a ferociously original HOLLYWOOD remake in the last 10 years?

While I can't think of any off hand, that doesn't mean it shouldn't be strived for. As Alex said, there have been directors who have been capable of bringing some fresh ideas to remakes - but 20+ years ago. In fact, it's pretty sad that THE THING and THE FLY are really the only consistent examples of great (arguably better than the original) remakes. I'd put the 70's INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS on that list as well, but it's still a pathetically short fucking list regardless.

I just heard a podcast in which the EVIL DEAD remake was brought up and one of the guys liked it - his reason being that it felt reverential to Raimi's film. Personally, I don't want that. I also don't want some Rob Zombie HALLOWEEN bullshit either so the reality here is that these remakes ain't for me. I avoided the TCM, FRIDAY THE 13TH and NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remakes and I should have known better with EVIL DEAD. My curiosity got the better of me.

Alex K.
08-03-2013, 03:22 PM
I thought the F13 remake was pretty good. The studios obviously don't think very much of us because the kids in that film were written to be paper thin and totally disposable and unlikable but I thought the actors did well enough of those parts. Maybe I like it just because it returned Jason back to his roots after almost 20 years.

Scott
08-03-2013, 03:30 PM
.... the reality here is that these remakes ain't for me.

Nor I.

I also avoided all of these except for DAWN which I didn't like, at all. It feels weak compared to the original, IMO, and brings nothing new to the table. I agree with you on the 70's INVASION and Alex on the 80's BLOB, I'd put those on the same list as THING and FLY.

Oh I did see the FRIDAY THE 13th movie but to me it feels like just another FRIDAY entry, which IMO is a good thing. It's more of the same which is mostly what I want from that franchise. Never aims to high or to low. Unlike say ELM ST where there's all this great potential to to do something, FRIDAY is just a maniac in the woods. When they do change it too much it fails, (GOES TO HELL, JASON X).

EDIT: Whoops, Alex beat me to it and I agree regarding the recent FRIDAY.

Andrew Monroe
08-03-2013, 04:04 PM
I see a fair amount of these remakes, I don't consider myself in the target audience (which I think is mostly younger people who aren't familiar with the originals), but I'm a horror fan and take them on a case by case basis as to whether I'm interested. I like to see horror films in the theater so I'm willing to take a chance. I didn't care for the FRIDAY THE 13TH remake, it all felt too slapdash to me. No one made an impression (say what you want about the original, a few of the actors were decent enough to remember at least). I think trying to combine the stories of 1 and 2 was a mistake too. I thought the DAWN remake was really good, I still watch the dvd every now and then. It changed enough from the Romero film to almost qualify as something different, a cash-in say. The EVIL DEAD remake was, save for the gore, completely forgettable to me. And gore ain't enough to make me want to watch it again. Never saw the ELM ST. one, I just wasn't interested.

I rewatched this last night attempting to view it as a remake. As much as they say it's a remake, especially blending parts 1 and 2 (and 3!) I just don't get that vibe. The opening with the mother seems to me more like a recap, similar to the way parts 1-8 all retold the legend of Jason and his mother via flashbacks. With the camp in ruins it feels appropriately like another entry 30 years later. No harm no foul. I guess this is just how I rationalize it. I do like it better than the previous New Line entries, but it still can't touch 1-8. I understand why someone wouldn't like it. The characters a more annoying and unlikable than usual and the one guy that isn't, the guy looking for his sister, doesn't get the screen time he deserves. You end up spending the majority of the film with a bunch of assholes. Still, I appreciate the tone and that it isn't jokey like JASON VS FREDDY and JASON X. I've warmed up to GOES TO HELL over the years, I used to hate it by now I quite like it.

But I understand what you mean.

sukebanboy
08-04-2013, 08:36 PM
I agreee Scott, the FRIDAY 13th remake was more like a continuation of the series...with a little recap at the beginning to get everyone up to speed....then it was business as usual....

Which is probably the main reason why it was a remake that worked,,,they didnt water down the original story for 90 mins....nor did they try to completely copy the original...but nor did they try to change or "update" any of it.....and, while it wasnt up to the CLASSIC F13th stuff..it was still pretty good..

I'm not a fan of the New Line ones either, not even GOES TO HELL. 8 was pretty weak tea but I'd revisit that before I'd go to one of the New Liners. While I didn't care for the new F13TH, you sometimes get a pleasant surprise with these remakes or updates or whatever you want to call them. SORORITY ROW was a surprisingly good one that changed quite a lot of the story from THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW. It's not as good as the original but it's one of the better modern ones I've seen. On the flip side though, the PROM NIGHT remake was a fucking piece of soulless shit. That one actually angered me it was so terrible. Not an ounce of heart or love for the slasher genre in that thing.

Jason X was more fun for me than any of the others in the series. Some of the lines had me rolling on the floor.

The Evil Dead remake wasn't as bad as it could have been. But it wasn't scary and it isn't something that I need to own or even sit through again.

Limited to 10 copies... when I think that some people whine over and over about Twillight Time and their 3000 copies limit :biggrin:

Was part of some competition....this one was never designed to be sold I think....

As ever, the japanese manage to outdo everyone with their DVD box set!!...shame the movie wasnt really worth all that effort ....Though I think EVIL DEAD (original series) was SUPER popular over there!

Looks like the sequel may be in trouble. (http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3262110/evil-dead-2-loses-fede-alvarez-sequel-in-jeopardy/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=evil-dead-2-loses-fede-alvarez-sequel-in-jeopardy)

Alvarez said:

“Look, I am sorry to tell you this but that movie won’t happen,” he tells the site before dropping the bomb. “Evil Dead 2 is not going to happen, at least not with us involved. We left that project many months ago because we preferred to put our energies on other things.

“I don’t know if the producers still have intentions of making it. But what I can tell you is that we are not part of that project.”

Wait! (http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3262286/updated-evil-dead-2-is-still-on-with-fede-alvarez-attached/)

"I just got in touch with Alvarez and he confirms that, “stuff got lost in translation” with Sayagues in the Gorosito interview published earlier today. He elaborated, “Rodo meant we’re not actually making ‘Evil Dead 2′ right now because the priority is Sam’s ‘Army of Darkness 2.’ But the plan of making a sequel to our ‘Evil Dead’ is very much alive.”"

So there you go.

So it looks like the extended/unrated cut of the movie is going to hit Blu-ray sooner rather than later.

I'd much rather watch Wither again.

I watched Wither last Halloween. It's really gory but runs too long or drags, one of the two.

The best thing about the ED remake is the soundtrack. I heard it before seeing the film; the guy who released the soundtrack use to take care of some property for Bruce Campbell so was able to get his
help on the music rights. He wanted to release the original film soundtrack but that was more difficult.

It's not the gore that's lacking in this remake, it's the sense of fun.

The fun doesn't really start until the last 10 or so minutes.

Ciuld have been so much hetter....didnt really deserve the name EVIL DEAD.....

But I guess some younger viewers probably loved it if they were unaware of the original...or its sequel..

Much better than I expected but no comparison to the original.
