Comic-Con 2012: Evil Dead Remake Banner Looks Mighty Familiar

A banner for the forthcoming Evil Dead remake is going to be welcoming guests at Comic-Con this week.  Boasting the tag: “A new vision from the producers of the original horror classic!” the banner adopts the old school Evil Dead font and “grasping hand” logo.

Directed by Fede Alvarez, the film stars Jane Levy and follows five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
