There is no denying that Fede Alvarez was making a brave move when he agreed to remake The Evil Dead and it is definitely one of the most anticipated movies of 2013. Now, Fede has been talking about his Evil Dead remake and how he wants it to be as bloody as possible.
Alvarez explained, “We didn’t do any CGI in the movie. There’s no CGI in the movie. Everything you will see is real, which was really demanding. This was a very long shoot, 70 days of shooting at night. There’s a reason people use CGI it’s cheaper and faster, I hate that. We researched a lot of magic tricks and illusion tricks. [Like] how you would make someone’s arm disappear.”
He added, “There’s a moment where a girl goes through her arm with a kitchen knife — spoiler alert. And we knew since day one the camera would start wide, she goes for the knife, you see her arm, she starts going for it. And you think they’re going to cut away at any moment, but we don’t. She just goes for it and screams and the arm breaks and falls. So we really pushed the boundaries there, trying to create those illusions… It has a particularly bloody ending. The last scene is just…I want it to be the bloodiest scene, ever. And I think it is.”
The Evil Dead will star the likes of Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Elizabeth Blackmore, Lou Taylor Pucci and will have the original team of producers, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and star Bruce Campbell. The Evil Dead is set to be released on April 12 in the US and April 19 in the UK.
