‘Evil Dead’ to Arrive One Week Early on April 5th

Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead remake has moved up a week from April 12th to April 5th. Bruce Campbell made the announcement last night to all of his followers on twitter.

The film centers on Mia, a young woman struggling with sobriety. She heads to a remote cabin with her brother and friends, where they discover The Book of the Dead. This tome encased in human flesh and written in blood soon unleashes an evil that eventually breaks them down, tears them apart, literally limb from limb, and brings them to their doom.

April 5th became a prime launching ground after director Paul Feig's comedy The Heat was awarded a more fertile summer release date yesterday. That left only Universal's 3D re-release of Steven Spielberg's classic Jurassic Park. Soon after this announcement, Danny Boyle moved his thriller Trance to the spring slot, which offered the promise of a good box office weekend. But now, stars James McAvoy and Rosario Dawson are going to have to do battle with some angry Deadites. Evil Dead is becoming one of the most anticipated horror movies of this year, so it brings some tough competition. Trance does not have blood rain, rape vines, or death by turkey knife. Which one will you see?

Evil Dead was released April 5th, 2013.
