Sure, we might be all excited about Sam Raimi’s mysterious plans for Evil Dead 4, but Fede Alvarez’s reboot of the original horror classic is just a few weeks away.

Want to see people acting terrified while watching the trailer?

Since they’re pushing the film as one of the scariest horror flicks ever, the marketing team is taking a solid approach with the first TV spot. Basically, it's some freaky shots from the trailer spliced in with clips of people watching it and freaking out.

Cliched? Sure. But effective.

Much like the original, the film will follow a group of attractive 20-somethings who head out to a cabin in the woods for a weekend. They stumble upon an evil book, read from it (Mistake No. 1), and then all hell breaks loose. If it's not the scariest horror film ever, it at least promises to be among the goriest mainstream films ever made.

The Evil Dead reboot is set to open April 5. Will you be watching?
