As you may have read online, the trailer for The Evil Dead remake has leaked. I gave it the benefit of the doubt. Look, I'm just as opposed to superfluous remakes as the next frothing horror junkie, but I want this film to succeed. After viewing it (video above...see for yourself), all I can say is...really??? They went the shot-for-shot route? C'mon, it looks EXACTLY like the original! For fuck's sake, the score is identical. Even the lead is an eidetic duplicate of Bruce Campbell. Why not just re-release the original?
I wonder how many people will get the joke.
