This movie was good and worth seeing. It kept me on edge. I would not bring the kids though as the gore is at an all time high.

The modern Evil Dead was pretty super. What it lacked in suspense, it made up for with classic horror "punch-lines" and raw, old school SFX use. Mild in it's actual scariness, the film has this really classic spooky quality that I miss in the genre--Yet, I could't help but feel like I wasn't being frightened QUITE as much as I expected to be. The trailers made it seem like I was going to be crapping demonic blood spray for a week afterward, as did the SBSW coverage...
The classic Evil Dead was honored without seeming like a parody, and the surprisingly artistic vision of Fred Alvarez (his other movies are painfully meh) stands alone, even if you have never seen an Evil Dead flick. The score was oddly, my favorite part of the movie--Which sounded like a mixture of Beetlejuice-era Danny Elfman and something from The Machinist (which composer Baños actually wrote for) . The movie AND the score was dark, yet classically--sometimes comically--punchy. I give it a 78 100. See it!

The movie is different from the original.yet has similarities. Seeing the original will not spoil this movie. If you're a fan of Evil Dead, you must see this movie. Also, there are a few surprises to be had. Enjoy!!

I had such high hopes for this film. It was a huge disappointment. It was gory, but not scary like the original. The original is a must see for true horror fans. This one is not worth the cinema ticket price. Wait for dvd or streaming. It was claiming to be one of the scariest movies ever. The original is, but this remake is not. In my opinion The Hills Have Eyes, A Serbian Film, and Texas Chainsaw are much scarier. There is a difference in a gory film and a suspenseful or scary film. This film is gory. A Serbian Film and Texas Chainsaw are scary, suspenseful, and gory. If you have never seen the original this one might be scary.

This movie is great! The only "disappointment" I had, was the tree rape scene...they could've done that a lot more gruesome and intense! Which is how it should've been. My husband and I loved it. We were a bit iffy about it, bc it's a remake...and a lot of horror remakes just do not do justice, but this one tops them. Great movie! Love the gore....wish bits hadn't been cut out. Go see it. It'll make you giggle! The ending was my favorite part, was surprised they showed something like that in the cinema! Yay!
Not recommend for children, lol, but I think that should be obvious
