Not bad, not great...

So, I can't say it was bad, but I can't say it was worth my $11 and almost two hours. Practical effects - absolutely great and gave the look a texture and depth that CGI effects just can't accomplish, and they seemed to add something to the acting performances. Unlike most horror films, there were no actors that stood out as bad, but they didn't dazzle either...except for the lead female - she was actually AMAZING! This was by no means a bad film, but it was like the cinematic equivalent of chinese food - hungry 30 minutes later with no recollection of what you ate. If you grew up on horror films this has NOTHING you haven't seen before. I recommend renting CABIN IN THE WOODS instead - far superior in EVERY way!

Way, way too much blood. There was too much people losing body parts and maybe two places that made me jump. I was very disappointed. I should have spent my money to go see scary movie 5.

Loved the film, they paid their homage to the first ones and they made it their own. AND IT DIDNT NEED 3-D & glad it didn't come out in it!! Cant wait for it to come out on Blu-Ray,

Plays homage to the original while holding its own

The new Evil Dead does a great job at establishing its own plot while still playing homage to the original in almost every scene. Everything from the pendant to the car in the original have some kind of incarnation. The only thing I was disappointed about was that they included a vast majority of the gore scenes in the trailers.
