It kind of feels wrong that two of my posts back-to-back today are remakes, what does that say about the current state of the genre? in any event the official synopsis has made its way online for Fede Alvarez’s upcoming remake/reboot of the 1981 cult classic The Evil Dead.
Synopsis: “In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.”
The remake is scheduled to hit theatres on April 13, 2013.
