This looks like it good be a good remake a la Dawn of the Dead instead of that piece of shiat Total Recall et al.
 
2012-10-24 08:22:57 PM  
it good be a good

Yeah, I don't know what happened there.
 
2012-10-24 08:33:16 PM  
Maybe it's just the way the trailer is cut but there doesn't seem to be any comedy in this one
 
2012-10-24 08:34:30 PM  
I approve. The first one was so low quality and had such terrible acting that having a new one is warranted.

Of course, when I saw the first one in the theater I was scared shiatless and very impressed once the scary shiat started happening, low-budget or no.

They should absolutely NOT remake the sequels though. Raimi had more money for those and they stand up just fine.

This is a remake of the first film, which wasn't a comedy. You're thinking of Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness.

Yeah. The first one wasn't a comedy, unless you count how many times Bruce Campbell got trapped under something.

Really? I remember the comedy in 2 being more over the top, but I thought there was still some dark comedy in 1. I could've sworn a number of "jokes" were recycled from 1 to 2. I mean, Evil Dead 2 was really more of a remake than a sequel. Could be wrong though. I've only seen Evil Dead 1 once.

I guess my point was more that you, or at least I, would describe Evil Dead II and AOD as a horror comedy movie whereas I would call the first Evil Dead a horror movie.

But what the hell do I know, I could be way off base.
 
2012-10-24 08:57:15 PM  
The original Evil Dead stood out to me, it was unique. This one just seems generic, like it could be any other horror movie. It doesn't look bad, it just doesn't look like it has the specialness of the original.

Yeah, I think we're splitting hairs over it. I think of Evil Dead II as a remake of the first one that is just more over the top and funny. I'd definitely agree that the original Evil Dead is the closest of the three to a pure horror movie.

At about 29 seconds, he clearly says "Estrada."

It's half a remake. They couldn't get the rights to their own film to do a recap, so they just reshot. But about halfway through, it goes in a new direction.
 
2012-10-24 09:06:48 PM  
I think "A Cabin in the Woods" might have put the kibosh on horror movies about cabins in the woods. And the girl has to cut her hand off with an electric knife instead of a chainsaw? That's sexist.

I still haven't forgiven Sam Raimi for Spiderman 3. And since he'll make some money off this, I'm not interested.

I was hoping he would have a cameo but sadly it does not seem like it will happen. Either way that trailer creeped me the f*ck out. The movie should be good.

Really? That used to be the first movie I would watch with new girlfriends for a few years. All digitally remastered and shiat so the surround sound actually enhanced the flick.

I like Army of Darkness, but never got around to seeing the first two.

Also can't easily watch video at work, so I'll try it in the morning.

Seriously; same cabin. The basement even looks like it was decorated nearly the same. I thought subby linked to some odd joke trailer... and then things got really, really bloody.

/I'll see it
 
2012-10-25 04:26:05 AM  
As a fan of the original three, I'm going to watch this one, hopefully with my friend who's also a big fan.

Trailer makes it weird seeing familiar ED stuff but with larger production values, and more then three guys torturing "actors" and themselves out in the woods. I'm glad that the classic is in this movie even though its supposed to be modern day and there's not too many '73 88's out there.
 
2012-10-25 04:47:03 AM  
is it just coincidence or have film makers been making horror movies with huge spaces of black or darkness in the frame since big arse TVs became the household typical? can someone explain this to me?
 
2012-10-25 05:02:44 AM  
ED2 is a remakequel.

If you like Army of Darkness, it's worth seeing (at least) ED2. Similar humor, and honestly a lot of the humor comes from what Ash went through in that movie. A hero's journey to insanity, if you will.

As to the new remake, I really hope that

#1 the musical cues are a bit more subdued than in the trailer. Horror is more effective with bits of silence / truly creepy music

#2 they don't go overboard with exposition. the rule of 'show, don't tell' is getting violated with a tree limb in the trailer

#3 also i hope that the movie sells more tickets than Gone with the Wind

Loved reading Campbell's interview about this and how he was hoping that "Torture Porn" would meet a gruesome death. Since it has Bruce's seal of approval I'll be there in a heart beat.
 
2012-10-25 05:23:43 AM  
This movie looks like a cheap rip off of the stuff they did in "Cabin in the woods" right down to the trap door in the floor and reading evil incantations from a book. Lame movie ripoff is lame.

How can you have a good remake of Dawn of the Dead without the zombie pie fight scene? You can't, that's how.
 
2012-10-25 06:15:54 AM  
I hated Cabin in the Woods. I understood the pleasing the Gods crap, but it was still WEAK.

/no wonder that movie was on the shelf for 2 years

As a fan of the originals I thought I'd be more cynical about that trailer, but ya know... I kinda want to see it now.
 
2012-10-25 06:33:14 AM  
I'll probably see it, but I think I'll enjoy it more if I don't compare it to the first one. The first one had its problems, but it's one of my favorite horror movies.

I'm still cynical. I feel that by seeing the original and this trailer I've seen the new film already.
 
2012-10-25 07:08:09 AM  
Okay, at first I was like "fark these guys." But Sam Rami's involved. He's the original, it's cannon, I'll see it. No Bruce Campbell mean automatic loss though.

Yeah it was a comedy, just not an over the top one.

Understandable. However, as far as horror films go, the Evil Dead could benefit from a refresh in terms of special effects. This isn't like Halloween where it's a guy in a mask killing people and the atmosphere is what gave the original it's lasting impression. There are enough over the top gags (Rammi's words for effect shots if I'm recalling the commentary correctly) in the original that can be pulled off so much better these days.

The original budget was under $400k (according to IMDb) and they did a hell of a job creating such a memorable movie with what little they had. Applying a proper budget for effects might be worth it. Besides, Campbell, Tapert and Rammi are all producers on it. If this was a remake with some nameless studio execs running the show I'd be more concerned. Finding out they were all involved helped me get past the initial cringe.
 
2012-10-25 08:01:16 AM  
And I failed at getting Raimi's name right, twice.
/early yet. Time for more coffee

pretty much my thoughts. I probably wouldn't be at all interested if it weren't for the Evil Dead connection. It kind of just looks like a well-done gore horror movie.
