Although the film had the approval of both Sam Raimi and Evil Dead's main protagonist Bruce Campbell, Bruce as Ash won't be appearing on this modern reboot of the film that made him a household name. Well it is probably the best way to approach with this film. It is a different genre and the theme is teenagers and as much as we adore Bruce, he is not really around the "teen age". Also it is safe for him if ever the reboot does suck big time.

Luckily, the trailer isn't leading towards a "SUCK"-fest rating, rather I find it more creepier than its 1981 predecessor. Well it might be just me, but this trailer made me want to look at this newer version to just see what things will they add to the mix. I can see more blood, gore and "realism" on the trailer for the Evil Dead 2013 official red band trailer. I just wonder as to how will they marry in the comedic element on this seemingly more straight on horror flick. Hope they add new jokes because it would be disappointing if they even recycle THOSE. Generally (as you can see on the screen caps we managed to pull off from the trailer), the Evil Dead reboot for 2013 looks really promising.
