But the folks behind the “Evil Dead” remake are feeling ballsy, because that’s the tagline on the poster for their upcoming film. If you’re going to talk the talk, you’re gonna have to walk the walk, and a new red band trailer has arrived to make the case that this one will leave you shaking.

Suburgatory” star Jane Levy switches gears and leads the film that will find a new group of young folks headed into the woods, where the Book of the Dead will once again be the source of some unruly havoc. Of course, horror heads already know this is a remake of Sam Raimi‘s beloved 1981 cult film, but everyone around the movie is swearing up and down that this effort is worth the do over. So tell us, does us the restricted trailer below deliver the goods? Are your pants sufficiently soiled? Will this be the rare remake that matches or even trumps its predecessor?

Directed by Fede Alvarez with some script help from Diablo Cody, “Evil Dead” is coming on April 12th.
