Movie Fanatic headed to WonderCon to catch up with Evil Dead stars Jane Levy and Jessica Lucas for an exclusive look inside the remaking of a classic horror film. The duo were quick to salute the star of the original trilogy, Bruce Campbell, who is the producer of their instant horror classic.
"He's so awesome and fantastic. He was so supportive and told us to not try and redo anything they had done with the original," Lucas said. "He's so charismatic. I love him!"
We asked Levy what her toughest scene was to film, and we could have guessed... it's teased in the Evil Dead trailer! "Getting buried alive," Levy said. Yeah, that would do it. "You have to get yourself in the head space where you tell yourself, 'You're making a movie and you're not going to die!'"
When asked why there is such a passionate following for the Evil Dead movies, Levy simply said, "For lack of a better word... they have a charm."
Stay with Movie Fanatic for our exclusive sit-down interviews with the cast beginning tomorrow, April 3, including our insightful chat with the film's director Fede Alverez.
