Maybe we've become desensitized to gore? But I actually found myself bored. Character development and atmosphere was not really let to develop much, with this movie pretty quickly becoming nothing more than a gore freak show.
So maybe it's worth seeing if you just want gore...but it's lacking much of anything else. IMO the original "Evil Dead" was much better even if slightly less blood spattered.

My older brother let me watch the original Evil Dead 2 when I was 3 years old. When I was 12 I watched all 3, I love cult films and have always been a fan of Sam Raimi's productions.
I went and saw this movie last Friday and I notice immediately that they were going to stay consistent with the previous movies. The adaptation of the new storyline to the original situation was fitting, and I didnt feel too much resistance accepting it.
The blood and gore was everything I expected and wanted. The production, to say the least, was 1000x better than the originals (thank God). This movie kept me weak at the knees, on the edge of my seat in suspense, and kept me laughing during some of the rediculous slaughter scenes.
The only negative cirticisms I have were that some fo the filming/editing of some scenes was... inconsistent. It jumped and cut in, what seemed to be, a confusing way.
My advise is: Dont take it too seriously, and watch the original 2 first.

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.
