It's OK

May be I was expecting more from watching the trailer, I thought this movie would be very scary, but it turned out a little on the stupid side. The whole movie mainly revolved around 5 people in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. So I can assume it's pretty low budget too. I don't hate the movie, but this is definitely not the kind of movie that I want to see it again.

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 GROOVY

Gore Hound Heaven

After seeing the great red band trailer, my anticipation for Evil Dead was high. So I'm glad to report that the movie almost fully lived up to my expectations. The script is solid with a clever yet simple plot, and okay characters. There is a good amount of tension and a few jump scares, but this one is all about the gore. The gore is spectacularly over the top, but still manages to feel pretty real. You will definitely cringe a few times and, if you're like me, you'll love it! The direction here is the standout. Fede Alvarez does a great job of crafting his own world within the Evil Dead universe. He adds several visual touches that are a nice homage to Raimi's trademark kinetic style while still making this movie his own. My only complaints would be a couple plot holes. I also wished that it could have been a bit scarier. There were a few scenes where Alvarez took his time to build up the tension and I would have loved more of that. All-in-all it's one of the best remakes in a while!

Im a huge fan of the classic, and what was done here I feel made the story that much more compelling. Extremely enjoyable, and should bring joy to those that are fans of the originals. The new director that made this his debut did a killer job!, I look forward to see what else comes next. So glad this was done, bring a friend.

Creepy, scary and gory

I was hoping it would be a little more funny but honestly..I really want to see NEW movies, not all these remakes on great classics. Parents, don't take your kids to this movie...it can be disturbing. I sat next to an 11 year old girl and I just don't think it's right to show rated r movies to someone who hasn't at least gone through puberty yet because there are a lot of raunchy inappropriateness goings on in this movie as well.
