Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This Swedish homage to Sam Raimi's original Evil Dead (1982) is a bloody, scary tale of demonic possession. A group of naive young people find their carefree weekend in an isolated country house unhinged when one of them accidentally unleashes a mysterious and murderous creature trapped in the basement. As the demon begins to attack the couples, the blood-dredged body count mounts and with it, more creatures out for a taste of human flesh, freshly killed. The dazed young men and women soon mount their own desperate counter-attack, an attack that includes decapitations, dismemberment, spurting blood, flailing axes and the kind of gore one does associate with Swedish cinema! IN SWEDISH (with English Subtitles)

Review

This is old school zombie blood and carnage that is so downright messy, it almost drips from the screen. --Aaron Williams, Horror Movie Massacre

If you are any kind of fan of horror, drop whatever it is you're doing, and go buy WITHER, right now. Seriously. If you're still reading this, then you must not like good horror. This film is an amazing and visceral genre piece that EVERY horror fan and gore-hound should own. If this flick is any indication of where Swedish horror is headed, then sign me up.

Man, this film blew me away. It is a gore-soaked fright-fest that kept me on the edge of my seat. It is definitely not what I was expecting, but that is such a good thing here. I can't wait to see what the two directors do next.

WITHER is shot very well and the production value looks high. The acting is good, although the Swedish dialogue did throw me off a bit here and there. The story is intriguing, taken directly (if I understand correctly) from old Swedish folklore. I particularly like this aspect, as it lends a certain credibility to the film.

But what really wins me over with this one is the gore and the special effects. If you are squeamish in the least, do not watch this film. It is a grand-slam of good old fashioned carnage. There's more gore in this gem of an import than many domestic titles have here at home. It is truly amazing.

I have to admit, too, that I am rather impressed with the homage that WITHER pays to Sam Raimi's EVIL DEAD. This is not a remake, nor is it an attempt to outdo Raimi's classic. This is simply a labor-of-love film that dedicates itself EVIL DEAD's groundbreaking excellence.

I highly recommend WITHER to any and all horror fans out there. Gore-hounds will love the bloodbath and scare-freaks will love the thrills and chills. The film is available now, so be sure and check it out for sure.

Really loved this movie. If you're an Evil Dead fan i recommend it highly...as long as you don't mind subtitles. As far as story goes, there's a legend of a creature that lives underground. It will possess anyone who intrudes on its territory. All it has to do is look you right in the eye. In come the friends on the usual weekend getaway. The gore is plentiful. The acting is above average for a lower budget film. So if you're looking for a fun, gory way to pass 90 min..give Wither a shot.

WITHER is a highly enjoyable little Swedish shocker with enough gore and violence to feed the fiends. The violence was over-the-top, the folklore the film is based on truly interesting and the homage to Sam Raimi's THE EVIL DEAD is respectful to the original source material and intelligently executed. Bottom line, super entertaining with a few white-knuckle sequences.

Many viewers have insisted it was a better remake than Alvarez's EVIL DEAD, to each his or her own. I enjoyed both. Recommended. Hopefully we get a Blu-ray release at some point in the future.

Evil Dead all over again except in Sweden. Basement investigation leads to the release of those who dwell underground (represented by one) and it's all downhill from there. It's a jolly old romp with blood and gore splattered everywhere. We could have slung it all around some fir or another and called it a Christmas tree.
As with the Evil Dead, suspend your disbelief. You're along for the ride.
Also, for what it's worth, my copy is called "Cabin of the Dead." That just gives it away.

I grew up loving horror, actually desiring the films which were able to get under my skin. When I was too young for the bloodier films, I filled up on classic horror movies: creature films from Cold War paranoia, Depression-era Universal monster movies, all the way up to the beginning of the slasher films with Michael Powell's Peeping Tom and Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. The truly daring movies all have numerous copycats, though rarely are they as engaging as the originals. Wither does well not to attempt to reinvent the wheel, but as a Swedish take on the `cabin-in-the-woods' narrative it is able to offer an original style to that old familiar bloodbath.

Made before the 2013 remake of Evil Dead, Wither could easily be an unofficial remake in many regards, though is a different reason for the demonic attacks on a group of viral young adults on a getaway in the woods, based on Swedish mythology involving a creature which lives underground. The storyline and its practical effects seem most inspired by Sam Raimi's cult classic and its sequels, as well as the Dario Argento produced Italian films, Demons and Demons 2. A group of friends find themselves fighting each other off once some sort of possession/contagion is spread after a creature in the cellar is disturbed.

With plot simplified and narrative somewhat predictable, much of the film comes down to characters and the film's bloodier sequences. The effects are flawlessly done, never so flashy that they detract from the point of the sequence while always elevated to an extreme level. By the end of the film, the cabin walls are covered in blood from various battles between friends who have become possessed and those still trying to survive.

A mix between the Evil Dead and a zombie flick. Loved it. Foreign movies are always creepier to me. Definitely recommend it!
