The Redband EVIL DEAD is NSFW or Your Weak Stomach

Confession...I've never seen the original EVIL DEAD or the sequel. I have however seen ARMY OF DARKNESS, which I hear is tonally completely different than the other two. I know. Shame on me. I can hear you scorn and head shaking through my screen right now. It's in my Netflix queue; I swear.

Of course, with any cult classic, you always need to remake at some point. Thankfully with this series, Sam Raimi is back as producer and writer. Judging from this trailer, this will be a film is not for the faint of heart.

Here's the synopsis via
The film follows five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist's tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths 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.

Check the trailer (NSFW) after the jump.

Damn. Even though there is no Ash-type character, there is no shortage on blood and guts. Also, that does not make me want to get my tongue pierced anytime soon, and I audibly gasped with the close up of the string coming out of the eyelid.

When will kids ever learn not to read from a creepy book when you're hanging out in a cabin in the middle of a heavily wooded area?

So where do you stand? Are you digging the look of this remake? Or should Raimi have left his own property alone?

EVIL DEAD will be released April 12, 2013 directed by Fede Alvarez starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, and Jessica Lucas.
