It is my understanding that the new Evil Dead will be far scarier and without the humor. Okay, but why pull on the name of a fabulous and much loved classic? Why not just make a new movie that gives a nod to a classic? I love Bruce Campbell and always have. He won me over with "This... is... my BOOMSTICK!" and has been one of my favorite people ever since.
NEW YORK – Bruce Campbell, the original Ash from The Evil Dead, knows some fans aren’t excited about the 1981 film’s forthcoming reboot. He’s read all about the backlash, but he would like everyone to know they have nothing to worry about.“We did not screw you over on this movie,” Campbell told the crowd at New York Comic Con, which greeted him with a Springsteen-eque chant of “Bruuuuuuuuce.”Campbell, who is a producer on the film but not appearing in it, said it was time to do a remake of the original instead of another sequel because, well, the original “Ash” is a little past his prime.“We realized maybe it’s just too late to strap on the chainsaw one more time.” Campbell said Saturday. “It’s time to give these people what they want.”“That just scared the shit out of me,” said Jane Levy (Suburgatory), who plays Evil Dead’s female protagonist Mia, after the clip finished.
Perhaps they can salvage a few lines from the movie. Based on what I see, "Honey, you got real ugly" would be appropriate.
