Watch: 'Evil Dead' Green Band Trailer, Less Restricted, Still Scary

The Playlist By Joe Cunningham | The Playlist January 22, 2013 at 11:44AM

You would think that post-“Cabin in the Woods” there would be more skepticism than excitement about the return to the original cabin in the woods, with the forthcoming “Evil Dead” remake. But Fede Alvarez’s movie has been generating some positive buzz ever since the red band trailer hit last year, and there’s a lot of optimism for the film starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore. We imagine it’s probably taken a great deal of effort to cut together a green band version that retains the scares but removes the blood and gore, but some clever person has gone and done it, and now we have a trailer for "Evil Dead" that’s just as compelling but now suitable for the whole family!

You would think that post-“Cabin in the Woods” there would be more skepticism than excitement about the return to the original cabin in the woods, with the forthcoming “Evil Dead” remake. But Fede Alvarez’s movie has been generating some positive buzz ever since the red band trailer hit last year, and there’s a lot of optimism for the film starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore. We imagine it’s probably taken a great deal of effort to cut together a green band version that retains the scares but removes the blood and gore, but some clever person has gone and done it, and now we have a trailer for "Evil Dead" that’s just as compelling but now suitable for the whole family!

Okay, not really, but at least this version’s safe for work and even manages to tease out a few more details about the film. It still looks like there’s very little chance we’ll get anything like the wicked streak of humor that Sam Raimi’s version had running through it, but on the plus side it also appears that the scares just won’t be letting up this time around. Well, that’s if the trailers are anything to go by, and if we are to rely on them, it looks like Jane Levy in particular is knocking it out of the park.

Alvarez’s film (which boasts Raimi and Bruce Campbell as producers, which has certainly helped to appease fans) is set to premiere in March at SXSW before rolling out into U.S. theaters as early as April 12th, and then gradually hitting most international territories between April and July. There appears to be a great degree of confidence emanating from the filmmakers and distributors, with the film’s poster predicting that this will be “the most terrifying film you will ever experience.” If that’s the case, then nobody’s going to be leaving disappointed.
