I’m not going to say that papercuts aren’t the most painful thing that can happen to a person. But I will suggest that slicing your own tongue in half — which Levy does just before the trailer’s conclusion — must be, at the least, a very close second.
All in all, the trailer hints that the movie is much closer in spirit to the straight horror of the original than the berserk comedy of 1987’s much beloved Evil Dead II. Then again, maybe Raimi and crew are just saving the “Groovy!”-ness for the film itself.
Either way, you can check out the clip itself below. Take a look and tell us what you think.
