The reimagining/sequel/remake of one of the most iconic horror movie of all time is unleashing this weekend in theaters. If you felt as if The Evil Dead wasn’t as extreme as it could have been, Evil Dead will whet the appetites of horror fans everywhere. After the jump, check out the green band trailer for the movie that claims to be the most terrifying experience ever.
More violent and more traumatizing than ever before, Evil Dead may be one of the most gruesome horror movies to come out of the United States. Compared to many Japanese, Korean, or French horror films out there, here in the U.S., we have seen limited brutality in our horror. Evil Dead has gone beyond anything we have seen in the states and it’s surprising how the MPAA allowed an R rating.
Of course, the green band trailer is much lighter than the red band trailer, but there is still a level of intensity that may shock those who have not seen either. The video below gives a good idea of what’s in store for movie goers and is cut very well to avoid most spoilers:
For those familiar with the story, I’m sure you can see a lot of where this film is going. But from seeing this film already, there is still a lot that isn’t revealed in the trailer above. The movie is just as fast paced as it seems and will make even the most brave cringe at certain sequences.
If the trailer may have been too vague, here is the official plot synopsis courtesy of Apple Trailers:
Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
Starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, and Elizabeth Blackmore, Evil Dead is directed by Fede Alvarez and releases Friday, April 5 in theaters everywhere.
