Bruce Campbell has some words for skeptics of the EVIL DEAD remake

He knows your pissed. Yes, Bruce Campbell has seen the Evil Dead remake and assures fans that they will like it. See what else he had to say below.


Campbell conducted a interview with the folks over at Digital Spy. Of course the subject of next years Evil Dead remake was the main focus of the interview. Also you might want to know that “The” has been dropped from the films title and it is now only Evil Dead.

Campbell served as a producer on the Fede Alvarez-directed redo alongside Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi so it’s not as if the film went to the hands of ammeters.

“We’re really excited and really behind it, [but] it’s going to take a bit to get the Evil Dead fans behind it. We know we’ve pissed a lot of them off. We appreciate that and we appreciate their anger and their zeal, but the only thing we want to impress upon them is that we didn’t screw it up. This is going to be just as memorable as [the original] Evil Dead without being the same movie,” Campbell told Digital Spy.

He added he thinks the new film is “fabulous” and, “The nice thing is the film looks beautiful. The effects are 10 times better than we ever had access to and the actors are all better than we were in 1979. Though granted Sam Raimi is a mad genius, so we got a crazy result like Evil Dead out of this amateur enthusiasm sort of thing.”

Jane Levy, Lou Taylor Pucci, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore star in the remake which faced some rewrites by Diablo Cody.
