Im not sure I like the idea of doing a remake. I just dont see how you can call a movie an Evil Dead movie without Ash. He has become an iconic horror figure. To me it just seems like a cheap way to cash in on movies that have a cult following. They've remade Halloween, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm St. Granted the first Halloween remake wasnt all that bad. Rob Zombie seems to have an idea on what he is doing but the other two were horrible. Especially the Nightmare on Elm Street remake. You can not do a Nightmare on Elm street movie without Robert Englund playing Freddy. I have my fingers crossed that Doug Bradley will return as the role of Pinhead when they do the Hellraiser remake but i doubt it. Now with all of that being said I dont like the feel of this remake there isnt a good track record of big name horror movies being remade that have been sucessful. There may never be an Evil Dead 4 ever made but there are always the games. At least those involve Ash and do carry on the storyline with the exception of Regeneration which was a What If? game. Ill end up seeing the remake when it comes out to give it the benefit of the doubt but to me no Ash and no humor mixed with horror makes for a no go in my book.
