This was one of the better remakes of a horror movie I've seen.
Dylan White
This was a great scary movie with lots of gore, and will make you think twice about scary movies next time. very well made and surprisingly good.
Christina
I see too many people just destroying this movie by dissecting every little detail that they didn't like.

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.

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!

Remakes of classic horror movies generally do not turn out well. There are many examples of remake disasters such as Rob Zombie's "Halloween", "The Fog" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" just to name a few, but there are many more. The original "Evil Dead" was a pretty decent horror movie with some atmosphere, a good story and a lot of blood and gore, and the remake of "Evil Dead" does a decent job of providing a movie along those same lines. The acting was decent except for the guy who plays the lead male character. I thought that the actor who played the long-haired guy with glasses was much more dynamic and interesting than the main character. Nevertheless, the acting was okay, story was fair and there was a degree---albeit rather low---of suspense and atmosphere that made this a half-way decent horror movie.

Basically, "Evil Dead" is about a group of young people who are staying in a cabin out in the middle of the woods in order to help Mia overcome her drug addiction by eliminating any possible avenue for her to engage in such illicit activities. Of course, the long-haired guy with glasses finds the Book of Dead and begins reading from it, basically cursing and dooming them to a hell of sorts. Things start happening to Mia, and then things go from bad to worse. A lot of violence, blood and gore follow which is in the spirit of the original. The characters have to find a way to save themselves before they all perish at the hands of a nasty demonic force. Watch for Eric to take quite a bit of punishment and keep going---he's like The Terminator. Seriously, Eric takes an incredible amount of physical abuse which would kill most people, but not Eric. He keeps going and going like the Energizer bunny in this thing!

*Contains Minor Spoilers *

An exhausting, loud and pointless remake (or sequel) that may succeed in grossing you out, but that, along with some decent performances, and high production values, are not enough to outdo the original 1981 film which had style, wit and imagination. The story is basically the same as Raimi's original and "Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn", a group of people, staying in a very creepy looking cabin (I mean really? They couldn't find a far more attractive option than this crumbling, disgusting disaster-piece in the woods for a getaway?) where they plan to help their troubled, vulnerable friend Mia (Jane Levy), overcome her very bad drug addiction and hopefully to mend her relationship with her estranged, stiff, boring brother, David (Shiloh Fernandez). Again, bad location choice. If I wanted to help someone in their addiction and want to cheer them up, this sinister, decayed, stench-infested, crumbling, nasty cabin in the middle of nowhere is the last place I would take them to. Rant over, moving on. They soon discover a funky stain on the floor boards which looks like dried blood (hint- to get the heck out of there) that leads them to the basement where hundreds of rotting animal carcasses hang from the ceiling (another hint- to get the heck out of there) and a mysterious book covered in a black plastic bag and wrapped in barbed wires (another hint- to get the heck out of there and to not open this freakin' book) is found. The group nerd, Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci), despite various warnings scribbled within the pages of the book, like "LEAVE THIS BOOK ALONE", foolishly recites some of the incoherent words written within out loud, in doing so, awakens a monstrous, blood-thirsty demon that soon wreaks havoc amongst them.
