The Necronomicon has returned to wreak horrors upon some new, young flesh! A taste of those horrors was unleashed today by Sony Pictures in the form of a red-band trailer for Evil Dead. Basically, it clearly lays out the premise that anyone who reads from the “Book of the Dead” is going to die a horrible death at the hands of the undead. It’s a major reason I don’t go to remote cabins in the woods, live near a cemetery or read. Check out the trailer below — it’s gory, although I don’t believe it’s worthy of the “red-band” badge branded to it (it is a major ramp up of the Sam Raimi original, though).
Evil Dead stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Elizabeth Blackmore and Lou Taylor Pucci.
Evil Dead possesses US theaters on April 5, 2013 and UK theaters on April 19, 2013.
