I was lucky enough to meet and interview Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez earlier this year (find it HERE if you missed it) and it was clear then just how passionate he was about continuing the franchise. Hell, he actually did the impossible and made a remake that was good! In the following video interview with IGN Movies at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, Alvarez and star Jane Levy talk in great detail about working on the film together and promise that talks are currently ongoing about a sequel. As he's said numerous times in the past, the director expresses his desire to bring the classic films and the new franchise together. Would you guys like to see a follow-up?









In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.


STARRING:

Jane Levy as Mia
Shiloh Fernandez as David
Jessica Lucas as Olivia
Lou Taylor Pucci as Eric
Elizabeth Blackmore as Natalie

No.

Here's the plot if a sequel does happen.

"It comes back & she has to kill it again"

There's your sequel.

Cant wait for a sequel. This remake was really well done and a great movie, Jane Levy is badass too
demonizer84 - 7/21/2013, 3:21 PM
i would not like a sequel, to be fair im not a mass fan of the originals but i thought this remake was absolutely shocking, i hated the characters, the acting was terrible, it was so predictable all the way through, it had so much potential, but il be happy if i never have to watch it again
CharlesLord - 7/21/2013, 3:23 PM
i just want more levy
MightyZeus - 7/21/2013, 3:26 PM
No thanks. Bring in Ash or no sequel.
This remake or reboot was really flat and kind of boring.

groovy

Greengo - 7/21/2013, 3:38 PM
The Conjuring is much better.
GeekyCheekyChic - 7/21/2013, 4:04 PM
Freddy vs Jason vs Ash guest starring Jane Levy. Or GTFO.
Jollem - 7/21/2013, 4:10 PM
never gonna happen on screen, but at least it happened

Jane Levy sure is a cutie. I thought Evil Dead was good. More violent than scary, though.
Berserker187 - 7/21/2013, 4:43 PM
That movie was not scary. Waste of time. Hated that movie why a sequel but dreed couldn't get a sequel.WTF! This doesn't add up FK!
Killersloth - 7/21/2013, 5:17 PM
Was the original evil dead all that scary? Not really, but it was fun as hell and so was this remake, you can tell Fede really tried. And with that after credits scene, itll ensure alot of people who didnt like this one will at least check out the sequel.
StSharp - 7/21/2013, 5:28 PM
The movie was more gory than scary, but still awesome! And no, it WAS NOT so predictable! That's why it was good! It was fresh!
Gulon180 - 7/21/2013, 6:19 PM
shitty remake, reboot, rehash, rewtfever. indefensible shit...only riding on the coattails of something much better.
TheGODDAMNEDDaddySmalls - 7/21/2013, 7:23 PM
well PLENTY of others liked it, so I think they'll value the opinions of the majority than the tiny bit of unsatisfied fans who are never happy
DCeddie - 7/21/2013, 7:38 PM
I never saw the original until AFTER the reboot/remake...wow, what an insane difference!...

Personally, I loved the new one...predictable?..yes, but almost every movie in the genre nowadays is...there's pretty much nothing left that we haven't already seen...

What set this new film apart from all the other movies in the horror genre is that they made it with almost all practical FX...in this day and age where almost everything is CGI, I'd say that's mighty impressive...and from my POV, preferred...I'm sick to death of the over CGIifcation of films!...

I'm also a Jane Levy fan after becoming a fan of Suburgatory...great show!...and Levys got so much fun personality...

Bring on the sequel(s)!

This was a great remake! Liked it as much as the originals
pro346 - 7/21/2013, 11:13 PM
@1984 only in evil dead 2 was humour introduced the first one had little to no humour.
MrNiklander - 7/22/2013, 3:05 AM
Evil Dead 2 needs to be moved to a city.Imagine the whole deadite things happens via blood and not even Mia knows so BRING IT ON oh and let's have Ash pop up in the end with the title card ARMY OF DARKNESS 2(I know I am late but hey gimme some sugar)
DaVinci31 - 7/22/2013, 2:10 PM
I thought the idea was to make a series of movies like raimi's original(besides army of darkness) but with levi. Then both story lines would combine and have a movie with both levi and ash in the end.
