We knew it would happen: Someone decided to remake The Evil Dead. Actually, it was producers Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell, the director and star of the original Evil Dead movies, who decided to reboot the franchise. Scheduled to hit theaters this April, the new version (which got a script polish from Diablo Cody, of all people) appears to be, according to its trailer, more bloody and gruesome than all the other Evil Dead films. But the jury's still out on whether this one will be more fun.
To remember how hilarious and horrifying the originals are before the remake comes out, check them out at this month's Retrofantasma double feature. —Craig D. Lindsey
