Loved It!

I really liked this movie. I have been waiting for this to be made for many years and I am not disappointed. I didn't jump once in the movie, but that was because I was so interested in seeing what they did and how they threw in little bits from the original. Simply put...if you liked the original, you will like this!

Swallow your soul...

None of the same right notes that it's predecessor(s) struck to make it a cult classic, Fede Alvarez still manages to present a fine homage. Along with some great looks from Aaron Morton, Robert Gillies production design and the Makeup Department, this reboot delivers where Raimi wanted to in the very first. Staying well clear of "remake", it's a rare reboot worth the money.

More gory than Original

This version is so gory, the original version is more like a PG version now. No jerky humor in this one. If you are an Evil Dead fan or even a true gore fan, you must see this one. A couple of references from original movie during the movie and after the credits.

Worst Movie of All Time.

By ChapmanRL

The movie was so bad. I had to walk out about halfway through. Plot is to predictable. Acting was too much of 60's b movie. I would not recommend this movie to anyone. Save your money.

A Psychopathic Fairy Tale

By icotzabb

For fans of the evil dead genre, this pseudoremake may offer something. For non-devotes the film comes off in two ways: A nightmarish gore soaked film that attempts to take itself way too seriously. The dialogue is cardboard, the sentiment is lost on most audience members, with little backstory or investment. AND that would be OK except for the fact that these elements are not presented in a comedic, winking fashion. But do we see this movie for dramatic ambiance? No....but some may leave with their intelligence insulted, the gore and practical effects appreciated but not totally justified. It is a FUN movie, but hard to invest in.
