EVIL DEAD called 'the best horror movie of all times'
On 11 March 2013
If you’re looking for a horror movie, Bruce Campbell said not to look further. The producer talks about his latest project “Evil Dead”.
It seems like the gates of hell opened and Satan is writing the story for “Evil Dead”. South by Southwest hosted the world premiere of Evil Dead, a Sony's slick, shockingly graphic remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 no-budget horror called by now a masterpiece (judging by the cheers, screams, gags and tears.)
"We're like proud uncles of this young man," said Bruce Campbell, star of the original and a producer on the remake, about director Fede Alverez. "We're glad we got him because we won't be able to afford him much [longer]," Campbell added.
In theaters April 5, “Evil Dead” stars Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”), Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood), Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore as the film's requisite cabin-in-the-woods bait.
Like in the original, the discovery of a “Book of the Dead” leads to an orgy of demonic possessions and dismemberment and quite enough blood to fill several swimming pools.
Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they 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.
Evil Dead delivers satisfyingly disgusting effects like the original infamous “tree rape” scene but this time a storm of blood. It may not please all fans but it will attract younger ones who think horror films started first with “Saw” movie.
Full of white-knuckle tension, demonic thrills, quick laughs and blood (have I told you how much blood it has?) is a great popcorn-movie and it’s beyond any horror made this decade. Once you had “fun” with “Nightmare on Elm Street” you can’t unsee the resemblance.
The film had its world premiere at the SXSW on March 9th, and it was announced that a sequel was in the works.
We have the trailer for you but you've been warned.

Throughout the years, comic books and movies have not only given us great heroes to look up to but they've also given us great villains who represent the worst of us. There are many great characters and ones are arguably better than others. When we refer to the one-man villain he should be capable of killing, mass-destruction and, of course, soul-less.
