‘Evil Dead’ Red-Band Trailer: This Will Ruin Your Day

Evil Dead

So you survived the first red band Evil Dead trailer. You, for some reason, felt the inclination to watch a ghoulish lady split her tongue with a razor and witness the adorable Jane Levy from Suburbia get attacked by a tree in a way that would make the Poltergeist tree kidnapping look tame. Maybe you lost some sleep, maybe you desperately tried to wash out your eyes only to discover it burns… it burns! But you survived the entire traumatizing ordeal! Hooray! You wouldn’t have to worry about seeing grisly and terrifying images from the reboot of Sam Raimi‘s 1981 horror cult classic until it hits theaters on April 12. Right? Right?!

Wrong. So very wrong. The folks behind the updated Evil Dead wanted to show you even more disturbing horrors from director Fede Alvarez‘s take on the visit-to-a-cabin-in-the-woods-gone-awry. In the new VERY NSFW red band trailer there’s even more bloodshed (someone appears to vomiting a massive amount of blood into someone else’s mouth), more creepy crawlies (one of the undead demonically looks out through a hole in the floor), and more squeamishness (someone appears to have a thread COMING OUT OF THEIR EYE OH NO WHY I AM WATCHING THIS SEND HELP). Anyway, see it all for yourself if you really feel the urge to. This will ruin your day. Maybe your weekend. Possibly your life. Enjoy!
