So the new EVIL DEAD is here. The original 1982 movie was a groundbreaking & original film. And this remake is a total success because it DOESN'T try to imitate the original frame by frame. That would have been lazy and pointless as the 1982 film, in my view, was impossible to improve upon.
This new version retains all the atmosphere, has an unnerving & superbly original upside down opening scene of the car heading for the cabin ( loved that) & the subtle changes are evident throughout the movie but the good thing is that THEY WORK and are a refreshing & welcome change. I was sceptical at first about the movie but this remake is as good as or even better than Sam Raimi's original film. Cleverly the original beige Buick car is seen in this film, the shocks are startling & is it scary? Brilliantly so. The gore is plentiful & the possessed characters are nightmarish.
I love this film because it clearly has respect for the original. Being produced by Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert & Bruce Campbell is a clear sign as to why this film is a total success. 10 out of 10 from me. A rare score for a remake? I think so !!

After the success of Marcus Nispels Texas chainsaw massacre in 2003 we have had most of the classic horror films of the 1970s and 80s remade. This is a good effort and continues the mythology of the book of the dead. The visuals continue the modern horror aesthetic of a brown, yellowy grungy vibe (inspired by Nispel) with lots of splatterings of gore and blood that will appeal to the post Saw/Hostel generation. It is far more violent than the original film, this made me go yuk whereas the original made me go agh! It's also faster paced then the original and the humour has gone as this film is a straight up horror piece.

Star of the original trilogy Bruce Campbell said in the extras that this film can be seen as a separate story, one in a parallel universe, where the question remains as to how the book ended up in that cabin. I also like the fact that there is no Ash in this (only one man can play that role) and that the film features a strong heroine, something the franchise will benefit from. A crossover evil dead featuring Mia and Ash would be something to look forward too!

I made the mistake of believing the hype surrounding this movie and was left a bit underwhelmed by it all.
Positives - it doesn't try to be a remake of the original, but a stand alone movie in its own right. It doesn't rely on CGI effects, preferring good old fashioned prosthetics (the electric carving knife scene is a corker!). The cast are effective (if a little un memorable) and the sets are terrific.
Negatives - no central character you want to root for. Not very scary for a movie that is supposed to be "The most terrifying film you will ever experience". An abrupt ending that made me ask "Is that it?"
All in all, well made but not the terror-fest I hoped it would be.

By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 14 April 2014
Format: DVD
During the 1980's the pop culture ran film after film of Jason and Freddie. Real horror fans quietly turned "Evil Dead" into a cult classic with collectors DVDs selling up to $100.00.

The remake has high standards to meet for devoted fans. Some fans claim it is not a remake, but if you use the same name and have many of the same scenes, it's a duck.

1) The book has to be convincing. They did fine here.
2) The forest rape scene was a signature scene. This film didn't improve on it. One would expect with all the CG effects available, this would have been far better. It was worse. In fact there was a complete lack of special effects I was hoping for.
3) Bruce Campbell and a chainsaw. They didn't even come close. Jessica Lucas? Shiloh Fernandez? Please. They needed a name actor to take that role and write it with some personality. They didn't.
4) There was also a high amount of camp value to the original film series. This one eliminates all the humor. Seriously, where is the hand running around giving people the finger? I think the whole movie gave the viewers the finger.

If you have seen the original, watch this as a rental. This won't make my collection as did the faux skin covered DVD. Having trashed this film, I will say if you haven't seen the original and know nothing about "Evil Dead" you might find that you will like this blood fest. My recommendation is to watch the original and "leave this book alone".

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex. Sketch nudity in book, mud nudity?

I was searching for a good horror film to watch, and reluctantly chose this one. The reason for my reluctance was i have seen the original and most remakes are awful especially in the horror genre. At first my fears were met. I found the characters to be the young, pretty kind you would find in some high school drama. You know the kind of horror film you would find some adolescent boys watching with their girlfriends, so a cheesy and light hearted horror aimed at teens.
It turned out this film was drenched with blood curling gore. More surprisingly original gory scenes that are both unexpected and shocking. You'll find yourself turning from the screen and feeling the characters suffering. It's not just the gore though which most horror fans are desensitized too. This film has what most horror films fail to portray and that is a haunted atmosphere of genuine suspense and apprehension.
Anyone who who would be put off by it being a remake, should rest assured that with a few small changes, this could be an original stand alone film.
