MTV: Sam Raimi Excited To See 'Gut-Wrenching' New 'Evil Dead'

Of all the franchise reboots in the works, "The Evil Dead" may have us the most curious. Sam Raimi has worked closely with the makers of the new film, but by all accounts, the reboot/remake has stripped some of the most "Evil Dead" aspects of the original, including the hero, Ash.

Raimi stopped by MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about his new film, "Oz the Great and Powerful," and when the topic of the remake came up, he spoke enthusiastically about the prospects of revisiting the series.

"We have a few more days of photography," said Raimi, who added that he was excited to see it.

As for whether he sees the new film as honoring his original, Raimi said he doesn't approach it that way. "I don't think about it like that. I just think Fede Alvarez has really made a great horror movie," he said. "It's scary. The actors are great in it. It's really gut-wrenching, real low budget and intense."

Sadly, he also confirmed what we all feared, Ash will not appear in the new "Evil Dead".

Lilesville North Carolina
On Haileys Ferry Road just off Highway 74

There were a lot of hills and pits in this area, so I'm not 100% sure this is the exact hill, but I'm pretty sure. I know for a fact it is the right gravel pit, but it was difficult matching up the hills while taking into account the wear and tear they would take over 25 years.
Here is a satellite view of the location: https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&safe=off&q=haileys+ferry+road+lile...
It seems that it is still usually dry inside the pit today.

Bruce Campbell tells how he learned to stop worrying and go with the flow

LOS ANGELES - You have to leave Hollywood to be discovered there. At least that's what happened to longtime actor Bruce Campbell.

Campbell already enjoyed cult status as one of the stars and creators of the "Evil Dead" movie trilogy. He'd made those with his high school pal, Sam Raimi, and their partner Rob Tapert.

"After the 'Evil Dead' movies were over I had to learn how to be an actor for hire again," says Campbell, over a hearty breakfast in a corner cafe here.

"I wasn't used to that. I did a 'Knots Landing.' It was my first TV show in '87, two episodes. It was a horrifying experience. And not a good one because I was used to doing multiple takes, and you'd shoot film till you got it right. In television they'd go, 'How was the camera? Was it in focus? OK, let's go.' I thought, 'What kind of filmmaking is THIS?' So I didn't do TV for years after that. I hated it.

Digital Trends - Bruce Campbell talks about The Amazing Spider-Man, Evil Dead, and how Stan Lee is holding him back

Interview Excerpt:

What are your thoughts on the Evil Dead remake?

Look, we’re all over it. Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, and myself and Lab Chafford were behind it from the beginning. Sam Raimi handpicked Fede Alvarez to direct it. Diablo Cody hit a path for the screenplay. I think it’s an incredibly solid, adult, shocking cool horror movie. I just recently saw the rough cut. We’re 100-percent behind it. There’s no descent. We can’t wait to scare the crap out of a whole new generation of audiences. They have no idea what they’re about to see.
