You know, until a few minutes ago, I’d never actually seen the trailer for Evil Dead II, but by God, it’s the way a sequel trailer should be. It offers up a little taste of the original Evil Dead, just to remind you of where it’s coming from, and instead of giving away any of the plot details (granted, they were scant), the trailer just offers up a few glorious visuals from the film. There’s enough in here to whet your appetite, but it doesn’t give anything away and, more importantly, it saves the-fist pumping lines for the actual movie.
It’s not a perfect trailer, but it is the perfect trailer for this movie. It will swallow your soul.
