So the trailer for the new Evil Dead remake/reboot/sequel project thing is finally out. This thing has undergone more changes than Mickey Rourke's face since the first time I heard about it. At first it was supposed to be a straight sequel with Bruce Campbell reprising the role of Ash and Sam Raimi directing. Then it was changed to Campbell producing and a new actor coming in to play Ash, but Raimi still directing. Then it was changed again to a complete reboot with an all new cast of characters and a new director but with Raimi and Campbell still on as producers.
Well all this back and forth has made me a little weary that the final product may end up being closer to the new spate of godawful remakes of 80s horror franchises like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, but this trailer looks pretty...awesome. What do you guys think about it? Is this going to be the 80s remake that makes the cut, or more of the same shit?
I guess I should put up an ALL CAPS WARNING THAT THIS TRAILER IS VERY GRAPHIC IN CASE YOU ARE EATING OR SITTING AT THE COMPUTER WITH YOUR KID OR YOU ARE JUST GENERALLY SQUEAMISH.
Edit: I guess what I'd like to ask is, do you think it would have been better as a straight sequel with Bruce Campbell et al? Or is this the way to go?
