‘Evil Dead’ to Rise Again: Here’s the Red Band Trailer

Promising or waste of time?

I've been purposely ignoring any information about the upcoming Evil Dead remake, but I finally relented and watched this Red Band trailer. My hopes aren't high. This looks like one of those remakes where they don't add anything new to the film except money, and the lack of that was part of the original's charm. Bruce Campbell being on board makes me feel a little better, but I don't see why they're remaking this film, which was already good, instead of something that would benefit from another look. I mean, Horrible Sexy Vampire is right there.
