Excerpt: Admittedly this raters favorite from the franchise was the very first. It had such skillful camera direction, a likable lead, awesome visual effects (for its time/era), sweet soundtrack, immensely influential and originality. This one lacks an interesting character and after viewing the post credits seeing that awesome character say "groovy" the franchise is heading in the right direction.
Summary: Much better than the original, intense and one of the bloodiest and most violent movies ever made. Not for the faint of heart, but if you like horror movies, this is pretty much as good as it gets.
Excerpt: This movie was amazing. It was horrible to watch, many times I wanted to look stop watching because it was so disturbing, but I was compelled to keep watching. Now I have used this argument against another movie before, but that was in an entirely different setting. i used this argument against Hostel, a speculative over the top violent torture feast movie. That I still belive is complete and utter crap btw.
Summary: Best horror i have seen in years, most horror movies in recent times have been boring and predictable. but this remake is top notch , its made very well and does what its meant to. which is make you jump make you turn away and keep you interested right until the very end. There's no sillyness like a lot of horror movies . if you like horror movies and want to see a very good one then this is a must.
Excerpt: This is the best horror remake I’ve seen in years. In a world were every half-decent horror film from the last several decades is getting a remake and/or reboot, it was inevitable that they would get around to my personal favorite Horror/comedy saga, The Evil Dead. I was pleasantly surprised by this flick. It did a decent job of capturing some of the originals spirit while still being its own creation. It pay’s homage to the original, but doesn’t reinvent the wheel.
Excerpt: Evil Dead delivers! The Evil Dead remake that we all dreaded when first announced sky rockets at full blast and never dies out. It's vicious, very gory, and tons of fun, throwing you into the middle of the living hell surrounding these youngsters, as they get brutalized in some of the most insane, blood-soaked ways. Some people may be unable to stomach the graphic violence, but the fans of the original trilogy (like me) will appreciate it.
Excerpt: Evil Dead (2013) R A group of friends want to get away and decide to go to a remote cabin in the woods. There they find a mysterious book called, The Naturom Demono, and, despite warnings written on the book, they decide to read it anyway. It’s a mistake that could cost them their lives. This is the bloodiest film I have seen in a long time, maybe the bloodiest ever. I won’t be surprised to hear people passing out or throwing up due to the ultra-violence.
Summary: This is a well directed remake. It manages to be reminiscent of the original Evil Dead, while cutting out it's own path. And 'cutting' is what it does best. There is copious amounts of blood/gore present and all of it looks painful. Most all of the violence is sick, dirty, wince-inducing stuff. Despite the initial plot and characters being completely cliche riddled fare, there are a handful of surprises.
Summary: A rare remake that's not only crafted with great care, but elevates the original material and subverts expectations. A disorienting, overwhelming, and absolutely relentless horror success. And, oh yes, this is indeed not for a the faint of heart. You'll feel like you'll need to shower off your blood splattered body once it's over. I can't go into much without spoiling it, and it's best going into knowing as little as possible.
