A few weeks ago Jane Levy replaced Lily Collins as the female lead of Federico Alvarez’s “The Evil Dead” remake.
Now the actress revealed to The Insider that this take won’t shy away from having a dark edge – “This one is really different. They’ve changed it a lot, but it’s still a pretty gory movie. My mom probably can’t see it. I think the humor in the first one came from the special effects of the time. I don’t know that they meant it to be funny…This one is not funny. It’s definitely dark.”
Original film star Bruce Campbell, who is producing the remake, says “You can expect to have a damn scary horror movie. There’s no Ash character — The Evil Book is going to torment a new set of kids, so it’s a remake, or a re-imagining or … a re-whatever word you want to use. It’s going to be re-scary. [The Trees are back]… They’re not terribly well behaved this time either. (laughs)”
