This remake's no joke.
The first red band trailer for the upcoming remake of Evil Dead was released in October, and brought with it the grotesque promise of bloodshed and more bloodshed. Director Fede Alvarez had gone on record that the remake was "gory" and contained "a lot of blood," but those familiar with Sam Raimi's 1981 horror classic were no doubt still thinking that the remake might include a little humor as well, especially since Academy Award–winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno) was brought in to rewrite the script. Well, if Cody was able to infuse the proceedings with a some levity remains to be seen, as the remake's second red band trailer is no laughing matter, filled with twice the amount of tongue-splitting gore as the first.
