The fanatic cult of Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell devotees are eager to strap themselves in for this Raimi-endorsed reboot of his classic series. Having handpicked Uruguayan Fede Alvarez to shepherd the project, Raimi seems so inspired that while on the publicity circuit to promote the film (which he and Campbell are helping to produce), he’s even dared to talk about writing and directing a sequel to Army of Darkness (the third film in the Evil Dead series).
Who knows or cares (OK, we all care, right?), but it sure looks like Alvarez was the right choice to bring Evil Dead back to gloriously gory life. Now in theaters. (R) Not screened in time for review
