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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
