New ‘Evil Dead’ images squick me out

They’re really doing this one right. After what seems like a million classic horror remakes, Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead stands out like a sore thumb. The director’s making his update of the seminal tale of a bunch of chums trapped in a cabin with all kinds of demonic villainy with the permission – and under the supervision of – Sam Raimi and the original crew. The original movie was gleefully low-budget but used every trick in the book to deliver the gore, and the 2013 update looks to be doing the same, eschewing CGI for practical effects. FilmDistrict just released a bunch of new shots from the film, including behind-the-scenes shots. Evil Dead opens on April 5th.
