Nerdist premiered a 60-second TV spot for Evil Dead which will be seen during The Walking Dead season 3 finale. Makes sense. Nerdist is Chris Hardwick’s empire and Hardwick’s got that Talking Dead show…
The gory spot, seen inside, is hosted by director Fede Alvarez and producer Bruce Campbell. The film opens on April 5th.
The re-imagining of Sam Raimi’s horror classic stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore. In the film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they 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.
