Uh… For What It’s Worth, “Evil Dead 2 Remake and Army of Darkness 2 Will Lead to Evil Dead 7!” (MovieWeb).com

Yeah, we’ll take this with a grain of salt, but for what it’s worth, they did actually say this; click on the big red link to all the details. Not trying to be negative, we’ve just seen and heard Bruce Campbell‘s reactions whenever someone brings up revisiting the role of Ash onscreen again (note: this is not his favorite question to be asked). Plus, director Fede Alverez seems extremely confident and enthusiastic, and after seeing the flick, I’d love to see something else he wrote and directed… especially a sequel to this gory roller-coaster (adult) funhouse ride.

Evil Dead 2 Remake and Army of Darkness 2 Will Lead to Evil Dead 7! – MovieWeb.com.

This scene takes place BEFORE THE OPENING CREDITS, to give you an idea of how hardcore this awesome flick is.

We saw the movie tonight (well, Thursday night, 10PM) and had a fucking blast, by the way! They even gave out college-ruled notebooks, the kind we both love to jot down notes in, with an Evil Dead logo on the cover.  See it with a big crowd – and we advise NOT having a snack unless you can finish it by the time the movie starts. Though, if you haven’t eaten yet and have a medium-to-strong stomach, there’s a good ten minutes+ of calm after the opening credits. The pre-title sequence contains the scene in the trailer of the young lady/Deadite being burned alive–one of the film’s very, very few non-practical shots. When the five lead characters start wondering aloud where that horrible smell inside the cabin is coming from,  that’s a good time to save the rest of your snack for after the movie.

We especially recommend avoiding any snack that is warm and was alive at one point. Not to be PC, either… you’ll understand.  More on our experience AND the movie later.  Oh, and advise any fellow horror fans you happened to strike up a friendly conversation with to stay after the end credits!  I, in fact, told everyone leaving when the credits had started they should stay. They all took me up on it except some very pale girl who looked like she was about to throw up or faint.

EVIL DEAD! Feast On Over 20 Minutes Of B-Roll, Alternate Takes, Out-takes and Behind-the-Scenes Footage (Spoilers)!

Yes! We are using way too many exclamation points here! There’s a Part 1 and Part 2 – Part 2 is where it gets spoiler-packed. We had to either hastily cover the screen, pause, fast-forward, especially after one character popped up and killed or mortally injured the other, completely out of the blue. We wish we hadn’t had it spoiled, because chances are high the crowd at the movie is going to go NUTS when it happens.  There’s something listed as “The Mia Abomination” in the IMDB with a MAN playing her/it.  Mrs. Horror Boom also saw some sort of puppet being set up and looked away.

The B-Roll footage also shows alternate/multiple takes (especially of Evil Mia peeking out of the chained-shut cellar door and doing the weeee’re gonna geeeet yoooou creepy sing-song voice from the trailer multiple times, plus saying other lines). Jane Levy is GOOD. I see now why they needed the acting talent to be young and energetic, especially the females. I sort of made fun of her for complaining about being “buried alive” (this is also shown being set up, then I skipped some spoilers from the actual scene). Now I feel bad. While she doesn’t get put through the wringer on a Bruce Campbell-level, you can tell lots of the shots were not fun and exhausting even for a healthy 23-year old actress. In a behind-the-scenes interview, she mentioned that there was one day she couldn’t stop crying (you won’t blame her after you see it, trust us) and they had to basically shut down for the day.

If you have seen the clips, trailers, and everything else officially released, the first part shouldn’t ruin anything major for you. The second, you have been warned – MAJOR spoilers, and we didn’t even watch the whole thing. Here’s Part 1:

(Screen caps to come on both parts, BTW)

Here’s the SPOILER WARNING SPOILERS WE MENTIONED EARLIER! Part 2:

Just think, there’s STILL more coming in the movie! Like, a LOT. Enjoy!

SPOILERS! Check Out This Behind-the-Scenes, B-Roll Footage from Evil Dead, Opening April 5th (Daily Dead)

OK, because 24 hours from now we’ll have seen the gory, fun, roller-coaster ride of a flick, we somehow controlled ourselves and stopped watching half-way through the B-roll footage. You WILL be spoiled! It’s not boring, either. We’re talking chopped-up but still possessed bodies being buried, things on fire, Deadites on fire… you’ve been warned.

We also get to see the beautiful Ms. Lucas getting her missing chunk of face-makeup prosthetics applied. FUCK YEAH, PRACTICAL EFFECTS! Sorry, this is like trying to calm down and try to fall asleep when you’re a kid all hyped up on Christmas Eve.

Actually, all the female cast are beautiful. I didn’t recognize Jane Levy out of make-up at the premiere.  I’m not that familiar with her work since according to her bio she was born after I graduated from high school (SIGH, but hey, we got to grow up in the 80s Horror Boom, so who’s REALLY lucky?) and we don’t watch Subpugatory (great title, though). Yeah, she looks fucking horrifying as a Deadite, but in the footage and stills of her being chased, getting more or less raped by a couple of evil trees, and the scenes of shaking with fear and whispering to her brother We… have… to… get… OUT… of… here, I still don’t know how the made the stunning, wholesome redhead look as unhealthy and exhausted as she does in the first part of the movie.  See below:

Well, they do have excellent make-up talent on board.

We’ll make another post soon with some screen grabs that aren’t too spoiler-y if you don’t want to ruin anything by watching B-roll footage, etc.  You probably already had this idea occur to you, but check theater listings. If you can’t wait till Friday (we sure fucking couldn’t) there seem to be a TON of Thursday showings, some starting at 10:00PM and then again at midnight. A good half-dozen theaters in our area code did!
