Two days ago we were discussing the Evil Dead teaser, now we have the full red band trailer to mull over and it’s quite a corker. If you are an adult and don’t mind blood, gore and pervy trees, then take a look below:
It seems the be an interesting mix of imagery from both the first and second film, taking some of the more hilarious moments of ED2 (such as the possessed hand) and redoing them in the ethos if ED1. This entails shredding out the humour and upping the trauma. Of course, a trailer can spin footage any way it likes, so this is all conjecture at this point. The cast seem perfectly acceptable, though all we really see them doing is screaming and wailing, but they are pulling that off at least. Over-all, very optimistic and holding out hope that Bruce will make some sort of cameo, ideally playing Ash on a tape-recorder telling them not to say “the words”.
Thumbs up to:
Having the road get washed out instead of a bridge collapsing
The return of the dirty tree!
Thumbs down to:
The removal of the milk-white undead eyes.
The inclusion of moments that are always going to be compared to Bruce (and be found lacking!)
The necromonicon still looks like a hokey prop.
