Sam Raimi and his production team have gone in hard with the trailer for the Evil Dead remake.

Branded for mature audiences only, there are moments in this teaser that are so gory, they leave you wondering what hell they’ve put in the rest of the movie. This remake of Raimi’s classic 1981 movie starring Bruce Campbell was initially met with a degree of pessimism from horror purists but he’s back on board, with Sam Raimi and indie movie darling Diablo Cody both claiming a writing credit for the remake and with Fede Alvarez in the director’s seat, they appear to have taken no prisoners with this resurrection and the trailer alone is sure to silence the cynics.

2013’s Evil Dead stars Jane Levy as Mia. Shiloh Fernadez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci and Elizabeth Blackmore all join her onscreen, as does Bruce Campbell himself, albeit briefly. Campbell, of course, is a huge part of the success of the original 1980s movies, so it’s a relief to see him on production duties here as well.

So what can you expect from this trailer? You can expect to see Jane Levy looking so convincingly terrified, from the first few moments, of whatever it is that’s out there in the woods, that you may well decide to switch it off right there and then. You can also expect to see her getting inappropriately assaulted by a tree. And slicing her own tongue in half before trying to ram it down someone else’s throat. It’s not for the faint hearted, basically. 

Watch the trailer at your peril... "for mature audiences only"
