“Invitation to Dance - It’s a Dance. And sometimes they turn the lights off in this ballroom. But we’ll dance anyway, you and I. Even in the Dark. Especially in the Dark. May I have the pleasure?” --- Stephen King ::::::::::: MY CRITERIA FOR DISCUSSION ENCOMPASSES THE HORROR GENRE AND BEYOND, SO I USE THE TERM "NIGHTMARE MOVIES".

Evil Dead (2013)
Looking not so much like a remake, but more like a reboot up the arse, Evil Dead (2013) promises to be the best one since Zack Snyder took George Romero's Dawn of the Dead (1978) and kicked the living shit out of it.

I was extremely concerned when I first heard Sam Raimi had given the green light and was being involved in a new version of his low-budget cult classic The Evil Dead (1981). As a rule remakes suck, but of course like all rules they can be broken, and there are a clutch of them that are amazing, but they are a rare breed of beast.

Evil Dead (2013)
I was a little outraged when I read that Diablo Cody was involved as one of the new screenwriters, especially since her attempt at horror, Jennifer's Body (2009), was a dreadful misfire. I appreciate she has an ear for hip dialogue, but I have strong reservations on her understanding of the horror genre. I don't care if she calls herself Diablo.

The director is Fede Alvarez, a South American. Another South American colleague of his is the other screenwriter, along with Sam Raimi (although whether Raimi's credit is simply due to the original screenplay, I'm not sure, and not sure why the "The" has been dropped either). Scripting aside, the teaser trailer is what is getting the cynics like me excited. The imagery looks impressively atmospheric and visceral and nightmarish.

The movie is not released in Australia until May next year, so quite the period for bated breath, but a nice little goodie for Halloween!

Here's the teaser:
