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!

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? 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?

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.
