First poster for the Evil Dead remake

Remaking a beloved horror movie is always a risky proposition, but that hasn’t deterred producers Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert from crafting a new version of their 1981 cult horror The Evil Dead, with director Fede Alvarez taking us back to the cabin in the woods this coming spring for what promises to be “The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience” – at least, according to the first poster, which has just arrived online today…

Overlooking the rather bold tagline, Evil Dead does appear to be shaping up very well indeed, with the first red band trailer generating plenty of excitementwhen it arrived online at the back end of last month, and with the original trio of Raimi, Campbell and Tapert overseeing things behind the scenes, there’s a growing expectation that the upcoming film could deliver a much-needed shot in the arm to the horror genre.

Evil Dead features a cast of up-and-coming talent that includes Jane Levy (Suburgatory), Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood), Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers), Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker), and is due for release on April 12th, 2013.
