‘Evil Dead’ Red Band Trailer Is a Tongue-Splitting Good Time – VIDEO


For those who’ve managed to subsist on only textual descriptions of the Evil Dead remake footage screened at New York Comic Con, the wait is over. The horrifying remake has hit the web with a full red band trailer, and it truly earns that description. (In fact, I’m wondering if the MPAA might be willing to implement a new color band just for this blood-curdling trailer.)

A reimagining of Bruce Campbell’s 1981 thriller of the same name, director Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead replaces Campbell’s beloved Ash with Mia (Jane Levy). When she and her friends head to a remote cabin in the woods, they find the Book of the Dead and something worse than hell breaks loose. The trailer teases Mia’s possession progression, from the early stages right up to the point where he find her looking like a zombie-demon hybrid, splitting her own tongue with a razor. There’s also a moment of what Levy described as “tree rape” when she spoke at NYCC.

Can you handle the horrifying trailer without covering your eyes or closing the window? It’s okay if you can’t. This one’s for the true gore and horror lovers, all squeamish viewers may want to flee while they still can.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
