Tree rape, facial mutilation, self-amputation and more – director Fede Alvarez quite literally put his cast through hell so we can revel in the horrifying and surprisingly gorgeous show of violence that is “Evil Dead.”
Jane Levy leads as Mia, a young woman who’s one drug overdose away from losing her life. In an effort to get her clean once and for all, her childhood friends, Eric and Olivia (Lou Taylor Pucci and Jessica Lucas), her big brother, David (Shiloh Fernandez), and his girlfriend, Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore), commit to secluding themselves to their family cabin and helping her through the withdrawal until she’s free and clear of the temptation. Trouble is, Mia and David’s favorite family getaway isn’t as charming and cozy as it used to be. Someone else was in the house since their last visit and while they’re long gone now, they left an unspeakable evil behind.
Turns out the endless hours of being caked in carnage and many long, long showers were well worth it because this “Evil Dead” remake is absolutely brimming with incredible shows of demonic possession, cringe worthy acts of violence, and wildly vibrant buckets of blood. Hear all about what it takes to succumb to the evil, make it rain blood and more straight from Levy, Fernandez, Pucci, Lucas, and Blackmore in the video interview below and be sure to catch “Evil Dead” when it hits theaters on April 5th.
