Fede Alvarez Talks 'EVIL DEAD 2' And His Approach To The Sequel

Courtesy of Collider, an exclusive interview with Fede Alvarez has been put online as he talks about the sequel-to-be Evil Dead 2 and his involvement with the project.

Maybe because I’m a child of the 80′s, but for me a sequel is a story that follows the previous one, and sometimes if you haven’t seen the original then you don’t understand the second one,” he adds, using Back to the Future 2 as an example. “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.
