Many fans of Sam Raimi's classic horror flick were less than pleased when news hit that we would be getting a remake, and they were doubly annoyed when they were informed that neither Bruce Campbell nor his character Ash would be a factor. But then this trailer hit..



..and things changed a little! It seems that Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead has now shot to the top of every horror fan's must-see list. Well, get to this year's SXSW Film Conference And Festival in Austin Texas from March 8-16, and you can see if the movie lives up to the promise of that blood-soaked trailer. Here is a list of the films screening (apparently there will be updates on January 31st), and you can see a list of the conferences by clicking on the link back to the official site at the end of the article.

Never been to a festival, film screening or anything so I might go since it's About 3 hours away from me as well. But I should probably research how this whole thing works.
