Evil Dead: The Abridged Script – Another Horror Flick We Hoped The Editing Room Would Parody!

FIVE YOUNG ADULTS arrive for an isolated trip together. FIVE BILLION REFERENCES to the original “Evil Dead” arrive slightly before them.

JANE LEVY

I’m a heroin addict. I’d be dead due to a previous O.D. if a lucky adrenaline injection hadn’t saved the day. I’m quitting drugs forever.

NOT BRUCE CAMPBELL

I’m your brother, here with your friends to make sure you stay put during withdrawal. Screw hospitals and rehab, this is how to break an addiction!

JANE LEVY

Whatever, David.

SHILOH FERNANDEZ

“David?” That’s my character name? Not Ash? Whew, I was worried I’d have to live up to these impossible standards from fans.

BOOK

Do not say the words “Klaatu Verata Nicto.”

Evil Dead: The Abridged Script/ The Editing Room.

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.

Screen shot 2013-04-04 at 3.58.41 AM

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:

Screen shot 2013-04-04 at 4.16.33 AM

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!

GIANT Gallery From The Evil Dead (2013) Gore Extravaganza Red Band Trailer – Check Out What You Coulda Missed! (Disturbing Image Warning)

There’s some shots in here even WE didn’t notice, they flash by so fast. Then again, there’s some you’ll recognize… but if you’re as hungry to see this as we are, you’ll want to check them all out! Click on any of the images to enlarge it.

Oh, and there’s a few from the first teaser last Fall (also a blood-bath) and the “Green Band” trailer. Only a few tasteful ones, though…

Fuck, where do we start?  The guy pulling the broken-off hypodermic needle from WAY too close to his bloodshot eye, skin trying to come with it? The possessed chick with the geyser of blood flying out of her mouth and onto Olivia’s face?  The chick slicing into her tongue with the box cutter? Angry molesting trees that take things to the next level? The disturbing drawings in the Necronomicon, not to mention notes saying things like “HE IS WATCHING” and what looks like “BURN BITCH“? Hell, we don’t know,  all we DO know is the guy with the glasses better have a DAMN good reason for ignoring all very clear warnings (the Book of The Dead was tied closed with barbed wire and clearly bound in what looks like human flesh; two red flags that anyone with common sense would heed). Oh, and we do NOT own the copyrights to any of these screen caps, or claim any right to them. There, covered our asses, I hope. Enjoy!

New Photos, TV Spot And GORY Red Band Clip From “Evil Dead” 2013 (Spoiler-ish Clip)

Hey! Kept trying to find a You Tube version of this nasty, GORY clip (just try not to wince and grab your face/eye during two certain nasty shots) which, strangely, doesn’t require age verification. Also, it isn’t described officially as red band, but oh, IT IS. For one thing, several… events… that are cut from the “green band” trailer, but are definitely on the notoriously gruesome (and COOL-ASS) red band trailer are here in the clip.

Screen shot 2013-03-30 at 4.09.23 AM

Here’s the thing, it’s kind of spoiler-y. OK, we’ve all seen the images of Olivia cutting off a chunk of her face, I assume? Also, the short (creepy) clip of her face in a bathroom mirror (which is a nice twist on the classic–some might call it cliché, but we’re not feeling cynical tonight– horror movie reveal/jump where a character opens a mirrored medicine cabinet, calmly gets something out/puts it back, then closes it to reveal someone or something horrible is now behind her) made the rounds, and it’s also briefly in the trailer. Saw it? Well, now you can see them in context in this whole fucked-up horrifying scene. HOWEVER, you also see a great ‘splat-stick’ Raimi-esque gag, plus the context of another hideous shot from the red band trailer that involves a needle waaaaay too close to an eye socket (if you did a frame-by-frame watch of the trailer like we did*, you’ll know the bit we mean). Also, we see what appears to be the brutal death of one of the five main characters (doubt it works for long, but it is brutal), and who’s responsible.  Wonder if someone’s gonna walk in and find them like that?

Cool as it is, we did get that slight feeling of regret and disgust with our own impatience that immediately follows a spoiler. Not as major as when we caved and watched the mind-blowing after-credits scene, but still. So be warned: even though we’re 99% sure it happens in the first half hour of the movie, and is only the start of all hell breaking loose in the cabin, it could be a spoiler and needs an alert. Of the sites we’ve found the scene on, most have a spoiler warning of some sort from the staff before the clip.  So we offer this…

Check Out The Look Of The “New” Necronomicon Ex Mortis From The Evil Dead Re-boot (EW.com)

This isn’t exactly a breaking newsflash, but we hadn’t seen these yet. While we’re bummed out that there’s no gnarled scabby human face (or what WAS a human face at some point) on it, the inside looks pretty scary. Hope all the characters smoke a bunch of weed like in the original before they play the reel-to-reel recording (if it’s set in the 70s-early 80s –if not, read it, I guess) because if they decide to bust out a book like this with very succinct, blunt warnings including  DON’T SAY IT. DON’T WRITE IT. DON’T HEAR IT. DON’T SHARE IT, then I’m going to have serious problems having any sympathy for them.* Not to mention, no-one in it is half as goddamned gorgeous (or funny) as Bruce Campbell was in the originals, so there’s no distraction to let a few things slide. OK, where were we? I realize this is a “re-boot”, but come on… having a female heroine saw off her “possessed arm”–give us a little more than that. It’s not like the old-school Necronomicon looked goofy, it was pretty disturbing, and the Raimi/Tapert team did a really amazing job constructing it with such limited funds (as with all aspects of the series). So let’s see more of the inside…

*maybe it’s because we’ve seen enough horror movies, but no matter what dose or kind of alcohol and narcotics were in our systems, we’d take one look at that thing and say, “Welp, that just about does it for me,” then put it back right where we found it, and go start looking for somewhere else to spend the night that didn’t contain a book bound in human flesh and inked in blood in the first place.
