One of the more exciting "gets" by the New York Comic Con this year was to be the place where Screen Gems debuted the very first footage from their upcoming remake of Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell's horror classic Evil Dead.
Of course we all hate remakes by this point, but this one, like Screen Gems' Carrie (more on that later), seems to have promise that it'll live up to the expectations of fans of the original movies as well as scare the sh*t out of those who have never seen the three previous movies released between '81 and '92.
While Sam Raimi still wants to make another Evil Dead movie himself, he instead decided to find some fresh blood for the remake in Uruguyan director Fede Alvarez who impressed him with a short film he made for very little money. Besides a new director, they also have a new cast, led by Jane Levy, best known for her role on ABC's "Suburgatory," playing Mia, one of a group of 20-somethings who go to a remote cabin in the woods where they find a Book of the Dead in the cellar that calls forth demons that possesses them.
ShockTillYouDrop.com conducted exclusive interviews with producer and original star Bruce Campbell as well as the film's new star Jane Levy on Saturday. You can watch both interviews and get a brief description of the panel and footage shown after the jump.
