Editorial Reviews

Additional Features

The main fact viewers will take away from the supplemental features on the Evil Dead Blu-ray is that the picture was, by all accounts, a tremendous challenge for both its cast and filmmakers. Lead Jane Levy (Suburgatory) appears to have taken the brunt of the strain, as detailed in Making Life Difficult and Being Mia, two short extras that focus on the physical and emotional toll taken by playing her character in both its human and demonic forms. Levy has an ingratiating off-camera presence, and appears to have taken her lumps for the production team with good cheer. She's also present on a roundtable commentary track with director Fede Alvarez, his screenwriter Rodo Sayagues, and her costars Lou Taylor Pucci and Jessica Lucas. It reveals no real hidden treasures--watching the other featurettes and a casual perusal of promotional interviews from outside sources will provide roughly the same level of behind-the-scenes information--but the participants are proud of their work, which buoys the track. Alvarez gets his own spotlight piece, Directing the Dead, which provides very brief insight into his directorial focus, while Unleashing the Evil Force covers the Book of the Dead in equally abbreviated terms. More interesting, if only slightly longer, is Evil Dead--The Reboot, a 10-minute talk with executive producers Robert Tapert and Bruce Campbell, who discuss their initial feelings about the reboot (Tapert and the conspicuously absent Sam Raimi were gung ho, while Campbell was more reluctant to undertake the project) and their advice to the new cast and crew. While not particularly in-depth, and sorely lacking in deleted or extended scenes, the extras for the Evil Dead Blu-ray give a basic blow-by-blow of the trials and tribulations endured in bringing the picture to screen. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

A secluded cabin. An ancient curse. An unrelenting evil. The original producers 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 bloodthirsty 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 Retread with that not-so-fresh feeling October 11, 2013
By rndkr
Format:DVD
The original movie from 1981 was made with a zesty energy and enthusiasm that belied its shoestring budget, resulting in a fun, inventive, campy-scary cult classic. As usual for remakes, they threw in lots more money, lots more gore, and cloistered it within an atmosphere of deadly seriousness. What they left out: any sense of fun, verve, humor, purpose. To these eyes it's strictly DOA. The worst part: like Wes Craven lending a hand to the soulless remake of his early 70's grindhouse classic The Last House on the Left a few years ago, Sam Raimi (the writer/director of the original) and Bruce Campbell (the original's inimitable star) were responsible in producing this. The end result is not exactly a desecration but simply a typical Remake Bummer nonetheless. Some people just can't leave well enough alone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Reinvention of the Original September 7, 2013
Format:DVD
The original "Evil Dead" was made on a very low budget, so it was interesting but not great. "Evil Dead II" was basically an improved, high budget remake of the original, and I loved it. The grossness was so over-the-top that it was purposely hilarious. Bruce Campbell was perfect in the role, despite the fact that, when I later interviewed him, he scoffed at all his early horror work as merely a means to show his real acting ability (we're pretty much still waiting for that, although he's not bad in "Burn Notice"). "Army of Darkness" was fantastic too. All the horror elements, cleverness and humor of its predecessor.

Which brings us to "Evil Dead" (2013), which had a high budget but none of the other elements that made the original series of films so great. It's blood and gore topped with a larger helping of blood and gore. No humor, no cleverness, ... nothing but sickening slaughter of the characters. There are references (physical and verbal) to the original films, but that's all. This re-envisiong of the series turned me off completely. There is no Bruce Campbell humor to redeem this terrible movie. Sam,
Ted, Bruce, Robert, and the dentist Raimi (all partners in Renaissance Pictures), please, you've made a ton of money off the endless versions and editions of the "Evil Dead" series. PLEASE, just leave it alone! It was and is a classic, so don't ruin it by remaking the films in a way that is dull, sickening, plotless, and not worth seeing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Remake that pales in comparison September 5, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This remake is way too gory in an almost laughable way. Especially the chainsaw scene........I would not waste my time on it and suggest you do the same.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing September 1, 2013
By J Dub
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I didn't expect a exact remake of the original. But I wanted something more than the gore factor cranked up. The genre seems to be dead as everything is just boring recycled crap. In that manner this didn't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feast on This, Mother-F*cker! July 28, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Perhaps what the movie does best is maintain a great tone. It feels like a roller coaster ride that can go out of control at any moment (and often does). The tone is incredibly well-set as being one that isn't as jokey as the original but not overly serious either. Seeing this in theaters three times, I loved watching how the movie played with the audience. Sure, the movie is relentless, but we were all in this together. It's essentially a sound-and-lights show (with Oscar-worthy makeup) in that like the original, it doesn't rely on the acting but on events. Typically, this is something I would condemn but that "Evil Dead" does it so well and completely unapologetically, I couldn't help but lose myself in the material.

Be forewarned- this might be the most gruesome and goriest movie I can think of in recent memory. Perhaps the only movie to match its extreme gore is the original. However, what Alvarez and the cast do by remaking this is to keep things as an interpretation rather than a shot-for-shot remake (Van Sant did that in "Psycho," and the result was horrible to say the least). The plot is stronger and more solid than the original because, let's face it, the original didn't really have much of a plot. Like the original, the characters are based more on their actions and are secondary to the excellent tech. The only actor required to do much acting is Jane Levy who gives quite an amazing physical performance as a drug addict who becomes possessed. The rest of the cast rounds out what is typical in this genre and do a good job of leaving you with questions as to who will live and who will die.

However, as I stated before this is mostly a sound-and-lights show and not a tour de force in great horror acting.
