Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

You leave a staple gun lying around an isolated cabin, you're asking for trouble. But that's the least of the mortal worries in Evil Dead, the 2013 reboot of Sam Raimi's 1981 kook-classic horror picture. This version takes the same general outline as the original (young people at a cabin, forbidden book of occult spells, all hell breaking loose) and plays it as an intense, blood-soaked exercise in nonstop action. Ostensibly the friends are there to help Mia (Jane Levy) kick her drug addiction, but they get slightly distracted by the dead animals hanging in the basement and the book of incantations wrapped in barbed wire. The nerd (Lou Taylor Pucci) in the group takes the next step--actually speaking some of the book's mumbo-jumbo out loud--and the rest is no-holds-barred, utterly berserk bloodletting. If any of this had real force, or if any of the characters had more than a single character trait to prop them up, maybe Evil Dead could succeed as a genre exercise. Certainly, director Fede Alvarez has the technical skills to horrify an audience for 90 minutes, and the film is grueling in its quest to find a grisly touch that will top the previous scene. But there's absolutely nothing going on beyond the usual template for this kind of movie (didn't Cabin in the Woods finish that off?) and ultimately we're left with another horror picture that relies on people doing stupid things. --Robert Horton

Product Description

A secluded cabin. An ancient curse. An unrelenting evil. Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell reunite to present a genuinely terrifying re-imagining of their original horror masterpiece. Five young friends have found the mysterious and fiercely powerful Book of the Dead. Unable to resist its temptation, they release a violent demon on a blood-thirsty quest to possess them all. Who will be left to fight for their survival and defeat this unearthly force of murderous carnage?

4.0 out of 5 stars essentially the original, yet it's own film. April 5, 2013
By SKOLVK
Format:DVD
When I first heard that Evil Dead was being remade, I wasn't happy. I've grown tired of reboots and remakes and I felt that remaking Evil Dead was akin to trampling on sacred ground. After discovering that Raimi and Campbell were backing it, I gave in and joined the the party, my uptight "Dead purist" friends be damned. This version starts out with the same creepy cabin in the same creepy woods but with a new group of twenty somethings unwittingly walking into the slaughter. A new element is introduced when we find out that the gang is trying to help their friend Mia recover from a nasty heroin addiction. Making the trip is her estranged brother David who wasn't around when Mia had to deal with their mother's death. Needless to say, there are a lot of family issues that the two never hashed out and hard feelings are being felt.

If being drug out to a creepy cabin in the woods by her friends wasn't bad enough, things are going to get worse for Mia. Ignoring all blatant signs to get out of dodge,(decaying cats strung up on the ceiling, A blood stained floor)the group decides to go poking around the basement where they find a book made out of human skin. The nerdy hipster friend(Eric) can't keep his hands off of it and decides to read it, going so far as to pencil trace the words that have been scribbled out. His meddling causes forest demon(s)to spring forth from their dormancy and they're quite smitten with the venerable Mia. To make matters worse, her friends take her warnings as the paranoid ramblings of a junky coming down from a fix. Soon the gore hits the fan and one by one the friends get possessed and off themselves and each other in increasingly gruesome ways.

I was pleased with Evil Dead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where the hell is the unrated cut?? May 28, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I am not happy. Great remake, but I was expecting an Unrated cut for blu-ray. If the studio thinks they are double-dipping off me, think again. I'm waiting on the Hobbit (extended cuts already confirmed) and I'm waiting on this too. Stop being so damn greedy Hollywood!

2.0 out of 5 stars You can't pull off your own hand. You just can't. April 12, 2014
By Brian
Format:DVD
The reason Sam Raimi's 'The Evil Dead' (1981) and 'Evil Dead 2' (1987) were effective for what they were (blackly comedic gore-flick tributes) is that they exploited the tropes of the supernatural-horror genre while pushing them to their (at the time) furthest physical and psychological extremes. They were quirky-funny, directorially overindulgent, viscerally shocking and, yes, even occasionally scary. Sadly, as is the case with most remakes of the past decade, the producers of 'Evil Dead' redux (2013) either don't get it or don't care. They decided to warm over a story loosely based on what was already a pastiche of familiar Lovecraftian scenarios, double down on the carnage, eliminate the camp, ignore any form of dramatic or narrative integrity, and imagined they would end up with something, um, grittier? more intense? serious? 'realistic'? I really have no idea what they were thinking (outside cashing in on the name recognition of an established cult franchise), but this dud, though it tries at moments to recapture some of Raimi's kinetic visual madness, comes across much thinner creatively, and therefore is a lot less engrossing, than the originals. 1 1/2 stars for decent special effects.

SCIENCE NOTE: If you're wondering, **SPOILER** vis-à-vis one of the multiple endings tacked on here, it is biologically impossible-- even when you have a machete-wielding, superhuman-yet-corporeally-vulnerable demon chasing you in a bloody monsoon and you've managed somehow to get your arm pinned under your car with a running chainsaw just inches out of reach-- to generate the force necessary to pull off your own hand. We all know how simple it is to perform self-surgery, to sever an appendage with an axe or an electric carving knife, without going into shock, passing out and bleeding to death, but even by torture-porn standards the 'hand yank' is a bridge too far.

I love scary movies but for some reason this movie did not really interest me at all. It was a struggle for me to pay attention.

This is one of the quintessential classic horror films of our time and this remake does not do it justice. Very disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Honestly Pretty Poor August 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Don't hold any nostalgia in this version.... Its really quite separate. Wasn't convinced by the story or the acting. A couple grizzly scenes was all that kept me engaged. Don't hold you breath.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just No Content October 16, 2013
By Avery
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I was sorely disappointed with this. There was no plot, no reason for almost anything that happened. You have a pretty standard set up and then the script goes no where with it. It is simply gory for gore's sake, which I find unimpressive at best. There is no real character development or depth. It was a waste of my time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pointless, unnecessary, and bad September 21, 2013
By helstar
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This pointless remake has almost none of the campy charm of the original series. Worse, it takes many of the same jokes & gags from evil dead 2, except they all fall flat here. It's terrible. Avoid.

Unrated?
I don't think so. I mean if they would had wanted to make more money, they would be releasing the unrated version completely separated to the rated ones, but who knows. Never say never. I heard rumors that the unrated version will come out on October.
