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?

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

Customer Reviews

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.

All in all, this is not bad movie if you are looking for something like the "Evil Dead" original with a more modern look. That being said, the original "Evil Dead" was not all that scary to me, but was more of an in your face blood and gorefest with some dark humor.

Format: DVD
During the 1980's the pop culture ran film after film of Jason and Freddie. Real horror fans quietly turned "Evil Dead" into a cult classic with collectors DVDs selling up to $100.00.

The remake has high standards to meet for devoted fans. Some fans claim it is not a remake, but if you use the same name and have many of the same scenes, it's a duck.

1) The book has to be convincing. They did fine here.
2) The forest rape scene was a signature scene. This film didn't improve on it. One would expect with all the CG effects available, this would have been far better. It was worse. In fact there was a complete lack of special effects I was hoping for.
3) Bruce Campbell and a chainsaw. They didn't even come close. Jessica Lucas? Shiloh Fernandez? Please. They needed a name actor to take that role and write it with some personality. They didn't.
4) There was also a high amount of camp value to the original film series. This one eliminates all the humor. Seriously, where is the hand running around giving people the finger as in the ED 2? I think the whole movie gave the viewers the finger.

If you have seen the original, you can wait to watch this as a rental. This won't make my collection as did the faux skin covered DVD. Having trashed this film, I will say if you haven't seen the original and know nothing about "Evil Dead" you might find that you will like this blood fest. My recommendation is to watch the original and "leave this book alone".

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex. Sketch nudity in book, mud nudity?

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.
