Jane Levy, Bruce Campbell Talk “Evil Dead: This One’s Not Funny.

With filming about to get underway in New Zealand on the reboot of the original Sam Raimi-directed canon of zombiepocalypse films, new star Jane Levy and vet Bruce Campbell spent a few minutes talking about what to expect — and not expect — from the new films.

First up, here’s Levy:

“I’m a big fan of the original. To me it’s the scariest movie, ever. But this one is really different. They’ve changed it a lot, but it’s still a pretty gory movie. My mom probably can’t see it. As for the tone, I think the humor in the first one came from the special effects of the time. I don’t know that they meant it to be funny…this one is not funny. It’s definitely dark.”

And here’s Campbell on the return of “evil trees”:

“They’re not terribly well-behaved this time either.”

  1. Tentatively looking forward to this. Dubious about how the trees could be less mannered than in the original. Maybe it will impress me, and I will be scarred for life. We can but hope.
