Movie Ruminations

Evil Dead releases a week early

Bruce Campbell, star of the original The Evil Dead and producer on the remake, has tweeted this:

The world cannot wait. The Evil Dead remake launches one week earlier! 4/5/13. You demanded it – you got it!

So, there you have it from ‘The Chin’ himself.  Evil Dead will be released in theaters in the US on April 5, 2013.  It is unclear if this affects international release dates as well.

Included with the tweet was this new image of a character from the film all bloodied up wielding a chainsaw.  Click to biggerize it.

Evil Dead ChainsawThis comes hot on the heels of the report that Evil Dead had originally received an NC-17 rating.  It has been pared down to an R.  Essentially, this means that the director, Fede Alvarez, had to take that chainsaw above to the film to get the R rating to get it into the theaters.  Cinemas are notorious for not playing NC-17 films.  What we can look forward to in the unrated Blu-Ray which will inevitably release following the theatrical run.

If you haven’t seen the original masterpiece, The Evil Dead, you can pick it up here on Amazon.
