Evil Dead reboot looks bloody (yet humorless) in new trailer

I am still very much on the fence about an Evil Dead movie without Ash. Sure, both Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi have given the re-make their full blessings, but I’m assuming they got paid very well to do so.

But you cannot ignore the sheer amount of bloody horror in this new trailer. However, I’m seeing something completely missing that made the original Evil Dead fantastic: humor. And THAT makes me think this is going to SUCK. It seems to be taking itself entirely too seriously – to the point that it’s laughable (no pun intended). And I’m sorry, kid, YOU are no Bruce Campbell.

Warning: The following Redband Trailer is NOT SAFE FOR WORK.

What do you think? Do you believe the reboot film will live up to the awesome cult status of the original?
