Fede Alvarez on the Evil Dead Sequel

Chris Savage

evil-dead-new-postersI don’t know about you guys, but the Evil Dead remake is a day one purchase for me, I just think it’s freakin’ bad-ass! But unfortunately I need to wait for the UK release. Lucky for you guys in the States, you can pick up your copy today! So, get on it if you haven’t already. Speaking of the Evil Dead, what about a sequel?

Well, Fede Alvarez, director of the remake recently spoke with Collider in regards to the sequel, and I’m totally stoked!

We’re discussing. We’re still talking with Sam [Raimi] about it and trying to figure out what we should do.Maybe because I’m a child of the 80′s, but for me a sequel is a story that follows the previous one, and sometimes if you haven’t seen the original, then you don’t understand the second one. So that’s kind of my ideal sequel – a movie that continues the story, takes one character and moves on, and moves forward with that character that survived with the first one.

To be honest, I’m still surprised that people dislike the remake, but, to each their own. I just think it’s an awesome remake, although I was expecting more gore if that is even possible. So, what do you guys want to see in the sequel?

        I would like them to continue with the same tone, if anything. As many have noted before me, the original was great and ‘unintentionally’ funny. The second was pure slapstick, as was AoD. But for me, one of the defining characteristics of a good/great horror film is if it scares. The new Evil Dead paid great homage and carved its own niche in the Evil Dead legacy, in my opinion. I think any sequel to Fede’s movie HAS to remain serious in tone. No slapstick. Let Raimi and Co. reserve the shtick for AoD 2 (rumored).

        I think they have to find humor in gore. The movie is too serious. The only gory scene you could take a laugh is when the girl cuts her arm off, it is kind of funny the way the blood splashes… I think they should do more of that. It don’t have to be slapstick, but don’t have to be so serious. But in a time when even superman is super dark, I guess it won’t happen.
