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?

Evil Dead is a remake of the 1981 classic and wastes no time in jumping straight into the action.

A strong opening tells the audience exactly what's to come and then the story begins...

Exposition at its most blatant and unapologetic is demonstrated, within 5 minutes you are told exactly who everyone is in relation to one another and what you need to know about them. Doing this in any other film always feels forced and clunky but it works in Evil Dead, we just don't care about how long they've been friends or the fact that one of them is a high school teacher and thats why he loves old books. It get's all that necessary information out of the way so we can dive into the horror and trust me, once the horror actually starts there's not a second of a breather.

I love the fact that there is a totally legit explanation for the fact that they can't leave the cabin in the woods, it gives such a realistic and morbid tone that is lacking in other horror films. The thinking and logic of it is a simple touch that just puts the audience at ease and allows them to enjoy the film rather than poke holes in the plot like - "Why don't they just leave?"

The whole film is just a rollercoaster of gore and horror and I loved every second of it. It builds and builds at an incredible rate and the climax is a spectacular, old fashioned fight for survival. An absolute bloodbath is a completely satisfying end to a film that pulls no punches.

As far as comparing it to the original, I don't think too much of a comparison can be made. It's a modern take on an old film by a new generation of film makers, they make their own version and don't pander too much to try and "remake" the original as such.

There are two ways to watch the 2013 version of Evil Dead. If you weren't watching horror in the eighties then you'll probably view this as a competent little horror flick. The acting is decent, as are the special effects. There are a few bits that make you jump and other scenes are reasonably creepy. Therefore, you may conclude that, if you were looking for a decent horror film, then you have found one.

Then there's the other way of looking at it. If, like me, you were a fan of Bruce Campbell's shenanigans in the eighties, as he depicted the wise-cracking `Ash' who was in the original trilogy, then you may be thinking why did you bother watching this?

I knew the remake had no humour. I was prepared for that. I can enjoy an outright horror film without the `tongue-in-cheekness' of the original. However, the central characters are pretty damn unlikeable. Without the humour, they're a miserable bunch who you won't really care much about - they're just a collection of stereotypes, i.e. the blonde, the brunette, the jock, the geek and the other one - `Mia' - who is a teenager trying to get herself off drugs (and failing) and therefore hardly someone we can identify with (hopefully). The opening drags as we're supposed to `get to know' the characters. It felt like this part occupied the first half of the film. I checked the timer and it had only been on for 23 minutes (it felt like 45). Never a good sign.

So, the film plays out pretty much the same as the original. All the aspects are there - the bucketloads of blood, the tree, the thing we never see that runs through the wood and the trapdoor under the cabin. Therefore, if we've seen it before in the original, there's little point in us watching it again.
