Extreme Fans: Fan-Made Trailer of Evil Dead Remake Uses Footage From the Original Movies [Video]
11.01.12 by Ryan
Last week, the first trailer for the upcoming Evil Dead remake arrived online. Despite fans' reluctance to embrace the remake of a beloved horror classic, reaction to the gory trailer seems to be positive, though it didn't stop one extreme fan from making his or her own version of the trailer which basically promotes both. Just in time for Halloween, Shock Till You Drop found the homemade trailer, which uses the audio from the remake's trailer but edited in footage from Sam Raimi's original Evil Dead movies.
Whether the fan is for or against the remake is unknown, but, apparently, Evil Dead actor and remake producer Bruce Campbell approves, as he tweeted the link with the comment: "This is wicked cool!" Remake director Fede Alvarez is also a fan of the trailer, commenting: "Oh my God, so awesome..."
Written by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues and rewritten by Academy Award–winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno), Evil Dead co-stars Jane Levy (Suburgatory), Jessica Lucas (CW's Melrose Place, Cloverfield), Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood)Elizabeth Blackmore (Burning Man) and Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers).
