Well "Carrie" and "Evil Dead" had panels at NY Comic-Con and both seem to be wanting to be darker then their older versions. Carrie will be more based off the book which features a bigger body count/destruction then the original movie did.
Evil Dead isn't using CGI blood/gore it seems and isn't trying to be funny in the slightest regard. Though the original Evil Dead wasn't meant to be funny either and it hardly was apart for a few instances. Evil Dead "2" (more of a remake) and Army of Darkness were when Sam Rami apparently wanted it to be funny as well.
So anyone else intrested by these?
(Oh yes, the molesting tree is back in this Evil Dead remake.)
