This came out nearly a week ago and no one dropped a note for me to take a look. That was probably for a pretty good reason. I’ve mentioned before that I’m looking for a pretty good horror flick and the field has been littered with the corpses of just terrible, terrible stuff. I have now seen this red band trailer, the most severe of all of the trailers, and I cannot unsee what I have seen. Also: I’ve included it below.
Produced by Sam Raimi as a remake of his original cult classic – one I haven’t seen, of course – this film is directed by Fede Alvarez, the guy who wowed the world with the relatively docile, $300 special effects extravaganza Panic Attack! So what do you with such amazing talent? You convince him to make some kind of body horror epic where girls cut their tongues open and make out with other girls. As the movie goes, a quintet arrives at a cabin in the woods and uncovers the Necronomicon, which causes all kinds of freaky shit to happen in the land. And then blood, blood, blood. More blood. And bloody vomit. Oh man.
It doesn’t look like they’re going to try and make some grand psychological attack in this film, resigning to just be as disgusting as possible.
