Evil Dead director wants to break horror mould

Jul 17 2013, 12:30am CDT | by

'Evil Dead' director Fede Alvarez wants the film's sequel to be a continuation of the first.

The filmmaker - whose remake of the classic 1980s film received acclaim from horror fans earlier this year - doesn't want to fall into the trap of other scary sequels that simply retell the same story with a different cast, and hopes to make a direct follow-up to his first film.

He explained to Collider.com: ''Maybe because I'm a child of the '80s, but for me, a sequel is a story that follows the previous one. Sometimes if you haven't seen the original then you don't understand the second one., like 'Back to the Future 2'; if you haven't seen the first one, you're not going to get anything out of 'Back to the Future 2'. So that's kind of my ideal sequel - a movie that continues the story, takes one character and moves on, and moves forward with that character that survived with the first one. That's what I want to do.

''But the reality of the industry today is that the sequel is just the same concept, but with a new bunch of characters. That's the reality of 'Final Destination' or 'Saw'. Generally it's a new bunch of characters and you play with the same concept again. But I don't think, personally, we should just get a new bunch of kids and throw them in the cabin and open the book again. ''

'Evil Dead', which starred Jane Levy, was a huge hit upon its release in April, grossing nearly $100 million.
