Well, lo-fi audio be damned, the Evil Dead panel discussion at the New York Comic-Con was pretty funny and offered some nice extra info when it comes to the remake and the possibility of an Evil Dead 4. Joined by director Fede Alvarez and star Jane Levy, Bruce Campbell does what he does best hamming it up for the kids while offering up some nice one-liners and answers. And I gotta admit, judging by the audience reaction – that brings to mind a rock star entering the stage – how come this guy never became a household name? I’m amazed.
Anyway, while on the subject of the King:
Well, here we go: Via the ComicBookMovie.com website I catched a glimpse of the teaser for the upcoming remake of Evil Dead as it premiered (?) at the New York Comic-Con. And you know, even though this would be a great opportunity to unleash The Angry Old Fart and start hollering at clouds again, I gotta admit this looks pretty darn good! Yes, the quality is pretty lo-fi considering it was filmed by an audience member but it’ll give you a general feel of it and I for one am not disappointed. It could be worse.
Granted, I’ll probably never get used to the idea of anyone but Bruce Campbell portraying good old Ash, but the intensity and groundbreaking horror of the plot itself seems to be intact. And like KNB maestro Greg Nicotero himself once stated in an interview, this time around they had the budget to produce some truly horrifying FX making it more horrific than The Exorcist.
Check it out here, but FYI it contains a lot of gore. One more photo:
