You don’t understand. There was something in the woods… and I think it’s in here with us… now. – Mia
Going into the latest in a looong wave of remakes, reimaginings,reboots and pseudo-sequels. So going in to Evil Dead all I expected was tons of gore and a fun time. Was it incredibly gory? Hell yes! Was it fun? Certainly. Was it the most terrifying movie I’ve ever seen? Nope sorry. I was at moments scared, but over all it was the kind of movie that made the 1980s great, with a splash of European gore thrown in.
But there is no way anything was going to top the original trilogy. But instead they take a new direction with the narrative while giving iconic FX a new modern and more realistic look. It reminds me of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Halloween remake. It gives us a new take style wise while paying homage to the original.
So go henceforth and enjoy the blood rain and chainsaw fun! If you want to be shaken to your emotional core try Martyrs. If you want to see the bloodiest film since Dead Alive then check out Evil Dead. Get into it! Thi may finally make the real start of good horror movies being done by bigger studios! Put your money where your mouth is! K thanks!
