First image from The Evil Dead remake
Attendees at New York Comic Con were given a first look at The Evil Dead remake
Amongst the numerous exclusives attendees at the New York Comic Con got to witness this weekend, the first look at The Evil Dead remake has to rank among the more interesting. It's a remake that few people seem to actually want, but with Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi involved as producers and saying positive things about it, it could just turn out to be worthwhile.
The film is directed by Fede Alvarez based on a script by Diablo Cody and focuses on a group of twentysomethings going to a remote cabin to help one of them to get over their drug dependancy issues. When their behaviour becomes a little unusual it's put down to their reaction to the lack of drugs, but it soon turns out that they're possessed. Fede Alvarez, Bruce Campbell and Jane Levy were at the convention to share this first image of Levy in full makeup peeking out of the cellar in a menacing fashion.
It has to be said that the picture bears more than a passing resemblance to the possessed Regan from The Exorcist, but still it looks sufficiently creepy. Whether the final product overcomes the scepticism surrounding it remains to be seen, of course...
