Well aware that there is a great deal of fan concern over the new Evil Dead movie coming out next year, Sam Raimi spoke with MTV about how it not only has his seal of approval, but it is going to be actually scary and worth your time. Seriously. You have to believe him. Here are some reassuring quotes from both him and his co-producer Bruce Campbell, who is similarly begging for everyone to believe him on this one:
"I just think [director] 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."
Geek Tyrant also submits this older quote from Campbell, which paired with Raimi's makes this a little easier to deal with, despite the lack of Campbell (like adding Stevia to a bowl of lemons that might also have dirt in it):
You can expect to have a damn scary horror movie. There's no Ash character -- The Evil Book is going to torment a new set of kids, so it's a remake, or a re-imagining or ... a re-whatever word you want to use. It's going to be re-scary.
In other words, Raimi and Campbell need to know what they need to do to make you trust them on this because nothing seems to be working.

Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead is not messing around, as I learned during New York Comic Con this fall and as you may have learned when you saw the teaser trailer. But one look at the new poster (released via Yahoo! Movies) proves that these guys really mean business. They might also be putting their asses […]
Watch the red-band trailer for the new Evil Dead movie…if you have the guts! (Haha, little horror joke.)
Allow your skepticism about the new Evil Dead movie to die now. This weekend, New York Comic Con attendees were treated to exclusive footage of the movie that is not a reboot, nor a remake, but a new entry in the classic horror franchise. And it was sick. I’ll admit, I got a little choked […]

You know the drill. You go to the dentist and they ask you how often you floss. You lie through your teeth and say, “every day!” (Bonus points if you have some cilantro or chives stuck in your gums from lunch). You don’t want to keep up the charade any longer, but rubbing that tiny strand […]
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has done outstanding work packing a fully capable desktop computer into a package the size of a deck cards—especially one that only costs $35. But if you already have a working laptop, why should you care? Oh, how much you have to learn. Besides operating well as a compact digital media hub, […]
