Our Evil Dead coverage isn’t done yet! In anticipation of this week’s big horror release, ShockTillYouDrop.com sat down on-camera with director Fede Alvarez and stars Jane Levy, Jessica Lucas and Shiloh Fernandez. After the jump, you’ll find Alvarez talking about how he got away with creating such a gory Hollywood horror film; also, the cast describes the practice and exhaustion that comes with playing a Deadite and special FX.
Opening Friday (April 5th), the film finds 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.
