5.0 out of 5 stars AN OVERWHELMING CRESCENDO OF FEAR, TERROR AND HORROR, July 24, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Evil Dead (DVD)
I admit I was somewhat skeptical in sitting down to watch this film because of the various unfavorable reviews I had read. Well - fuhgeddaboudem! This is NOT a remake of the original movie from 30+ years ago - this is an ultra-modern version of the basic theme of that film, and it succeeds superbly. It's very rare that a horror movie carries me from the first scene to the last with such a powerful, relentless and unstoppable feeling of accelerating dread and doom. ("The Exorcist" is the benchmark for me in this regard.) But this film did it for me, and because of so many factors, not least of which is the musical score - a brilliant synthesis of different styles and techniques that it can virtually stand alone as an hommage to the horror genre. The cast is uniformly excellent, the cinematography is astounding, the production values are first-rate and the director obviously had a clear vision of what he wanted to achieve - namely, to scare the living crap out of us - and he does a fantastic job! A must-see for all horror fans.
