Remakes & Reboots: Upcoming Movies You've Seen Before

Release Date: April 12, 2013

Director: Fede Alvarez (Panic Attack!)Cast: TBD

Category: Remake of the 1981 film.

Our take: Sam Raimi's Evil Dead is considered a horror movie cult-classic - hence why that adoration has turned to hate for this upcoming remake, which is allegedly going to be more grounded and gritty than its campy predecessor. As many ED fans will inform you (ad nauseam) - camp and gore is what made the original great.

On the plus side: Sam Raimi himself is producing the remake, as well as helping out Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Young AdultJuno) with scripting duties. However, until we know more, it's hard to say either way whether this is going to be a success or a failure. But if icon Bruce Campbell doesn't make at least some sort of cameo...FAIL will definitely be the verdict.
