There are a million reasons why Evil Dead shouldn't have been remade. It still holds up well. It's the originality and shoe-string budget that made it so compelling in the first place. It won't work without Raimi's sensibilities. Yet, all early reports are that the film lives up to fan's expectations and works as a damn scary film in it's own right. Here's a clip of the film promoting Wondercon, with an introduction from Bruce Campbell, director Fede Alvarez, and producer Rob Tapert.
Evil Dead will be released on April 13, 2013.
