EVIL DEAD Reboot Logo Revealed
Here's our first look at the logo for the Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell produced remake of the Evil Dead which is set to be directed by Fede Alvarez. I've seen both a lot of negative and positive feedback from fans of the original film, and I find myself on the side that is excited to see what this group of talented individuals come up with.
We recently reported on a synopsis for the reboot that will give you some insight on what we can expect.
The reboot is true to the roots of Raimi's original as it follows a group of friends who hole up in a remote cabin, discover the "Book of the Dead" and accidentally unleash an unrelenting group of Deadites.
The "new spin" is the motivation behind the trip, with the lead character taking his younger sister to the family's cabin to help her kick her drug addiction. Without her drugs she becomes insane and difficult to control, which makes it impossible to see that she's actually possessed.
The worst part, though, is that one of the friends unleashes the demons by deciphering the Book of the Dead and reading the passages aloud. (Yeah, because just some kid would know how to read ancient text. Sigh.) Theonly way I can get behind this is if the film references the original (meaning this is a new group of kids in theexact same cabin and Bruce Campbell cameo's as "Ash" (who has now aged quite considerably).
I watch the awesome Evil Dead movies again last week, and I'm rooting for this reboot. I want to see some great come out of it.
