In the original 1981 film that starred Campbell, five friends at a remote cabin in the woods unknowingly summon demons from an ancient civilization, causing all sorts of bloody and gory problems.There's no news as who may be starring in the film or if Campbell will possibly make a cameo in it...although, that would be totally cool for the hard-core fans *cough* my husband *cough*.
I've only seen 3/4 of the movie and gotta say I found it to be really cheesy but apparently that's what made it famous.
There were 2 sequels to the original which didn't make it anywhere but into the back of someones dusty closet. Raimi's longtime editor, Bob Murawaski briefly commented on the scale of the remake by saying:
"Evil Dead" "will be a small indie thing like the first two."source
