Red-band trailer for Fede Alvarez’ remake of Evil Dead

IGN has just premièred the first red-band trailer for Fede Alvarez’ remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 classic horror film Evil Dead. With the original revered amongst horror fans a remake is not entirely welcome but this first look at the film makes it appear more than a match in the gore stakes.

Five young  friends become holed up in a remote cabin and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods. These demons possess the friends in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival…

The film marks the feature directoral debut of writer/director Alvarez who has been keen to play up the practical effects, rather than CGI that he has used in creating the film.

Evil Dead crawls into Irish cinemas April 12th, 2013.
