On April 5th, 2013, Fede Alvarez unleashed his remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 classic The Evil Dead. With a modern styling and updated aesthetic, Evil Dead absolutely blew audiences away with its thousands of gallons of blood and awe-inspiring special effects.

Of course, many also hated it – but that’s just the way it goes in this industry.

Any time you take a beloved franchise and attempt to put a spin on it, some diehards are going to be heavily opposed. But for those who loved it – and there are many – the director of the film gave us a little gift last night by posting a number of never before seen photos from the production of the film on his Twitter.

Has it really been five years? Time sure does fly. Check out the photos below and tell us what you think of the remake.

Personally, I think it’s bound to become another classic when future generations look back at the horror movies of this time period. It’s bloody, it’s tense, and it provides a great contrast from the original, enough to justify its existence as a separate film as opposed to yet another rehash.

And Jane Levy, of course. How great is she?

Really great. That was rhetorical.
