A worthy remake
on December 12, 2017
I've never understood why some horror fans are so unreceptive to the idea of remaking a classic. If a film maker wants to add a new dimension to a well-known movie, why not? If it doesn't work, we still have the original. And if it does work, then we also have a new film to enjoy.
The original Evil Dead is certainly a horror classic, and this remake is an excellent reimagining of the story. With a bigger budget and decades of special effect advancements at their disposal, the makers of this film have delivered a body slam of a movie. It has a creepy, dreadful atmosphere, scary visuals and a staggering amount of gore. This cast also does a great job.
If you're looking for subtlety and understatement this is not the best choice for you. But if you want a movie that delivers an unrepentant (and gross) scare fest, give it a look!
