Horror fans are anxiously awaiting the first real look at the remake of director Sam Raimi's cult classic "Evil Dead". Screen Gems will grant them their wish when the Red Band trailer for the Fede Alvarez helmed film is released tomorrow.

In the interim, the studio has unveiled a tease of clips from the New York Comic Con in which Alvarez, star Jane Levy, and Bruce Campbell talk about what fans can expect from the film.

Take a look below!

One of the big questions that devotees of the original have is: what can we expect from the tone? Though "Evil Dead" is more of a straight horror than the outrageously funny horror-comedy follow-up "Army of Darkness" (the 3rd and final film in that franchise) it does still bridge the two genres a bit.

The Comic Con trio seem to be emphasizing the fear present in the film, which may answer the question about the tone of the piece. In addition, we caught up with producer Sam Raimi on the red carpet for "The Possession" where he told us to expect a "gut wrenching" experience.

Take a look below.

Synopsis:

In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror 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.

Fede Alvarez directs a cast that includes Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore.

"Evil Dead" opens in AMC Theatres on April 13, 2013.

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
