Evil Dead

Can anyone explain to me the point of remaking Evil Dead? I'm not sure I understand. It's hard to tell from the trailer if its going to be a self-aware silly thing or trying to make it a legitimately scary movie or what. Either way this seems...unnecessary.
The follies which a man regrets the most in his life are those which he didn't commit when he had the opportunity. - Helen Rowland, A Guide to Men, 1922

Money.

I have a feeling it's not going to have the tongue-in-cheek attitude of the original films but play it much straighter. I don't think I'll bother.

I get the impression that it's going to be like Drag Me To Hell, where you can see the entire film and still not be able to tell what the director wanted the movie to be.

I heard the chick who wrote Juno was writing this and that Ash was female this time around. I'm not interested enough to find out though.

From what I've read it's not horror(or dry comedy), it's just torture porn. Not really interested.
