A remake of Sam Raimi's 1981 cult classic Evil Dead has been talked about for years. In 2013, the wait is over, as writer/director Fede Alvarez brings a new re-imagining to the Evil Dead story. Once again following the layout of 5 young adults in a remote cabin who discover a Book of the Dead and unknowingly summon demons, Alvarez's Evil Dead attempts to stay true to Raimi's classic tale. Hitting theatres on April 12th, 2013, check out the trailer for Evil Dead by clicking below.
In 2012, first-time director Zal Batmanglij gave us Sound of My Voice, a suspenseful story about two journalists who infiltrate a cult with a female leader claiming to be from the future. Batmanglij returns with The East, the tale of a contract worker paid to join and report on a violent anarchist group. With a back story very similar to his first work, The East boasts a very talented cast including Ellen Page, Patricia Clarkson, Brit Marling and Alexander Skarsgard. Check out the trailer for this Sundance Selection below.
