I know this movie will have a love/hate following, but from what I've seen from the trailer, I can't see why anyone wouldn't give it a try. Evil Dead 1 & especially 2 are up there in my top 10 or even 5 horror movies. Most remakes are hit or miss, miss being a popular one, but this one seems to have potential. 

Bruce Campbell said: “There’s none of the original characters. We didn’t want to compare apples with apples. It’s a contemporary movie – just like Evil Dead was contemporary in 1979, this is contemporary for young adults now. It’s basically five new kids who are going to have a really bad night with a brand new director – Fede Alvarez, who was handpicked by Sam Raimi. I’ve seen it already; I think it’s definitely fabulous…We want it to be a standalone movie. You’re going to have some references [to the original] in there and there’s going to be things the fans will enjoy as far as familiar aspects, but it’s a whole new ball game.” - Quoted from

Plot Summary: In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival. 

The only trailer I could find as of right now is a bootleg copy from New York Comic Con.
I'm excited to see where this Evil Dead will take us...
