Evil Dead is in cinemas now, and a few days ago, we sat down with director Fede Alvarez to watch Sam Raimi's original.
This is the first time a remake director has sat down with a journalist to directly compare his film to the original - which is a testament to how much passion Alvarez has for the original film, and how much confidence he has in his movie.
In the below video you'll see *deep breath*…
Fede pointing out several cool references, Fede and Sam Ashurst discussing The Exorcist , Alien , The Thing , practical effects, Evil Dead 's general nastiness, Sam Raimi's magician skills, the needle scene, the timeless elements of Evil Dead , how essential the Book Of The Dead is to the Evil Dead mythology, the fans, The Fly , Evil Dead 's place in film history, Jane Levy, responding to the haters, Fede giving Sam Ashurst a high-five, going back to the basics of horror, Fede doing an impression of a giggling deadite, ideas for a new Evil Dead 2 , THAT scene, and what it's like to work with Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert.
END SPOILER ALERT
We hope you enjoy it, then go and see the new
, which is in cinemas now.
