Evil Dead Remake Different but Okay,,,, Meh....

The new version with its own variety of horror missed the mark where campy yet horrific fun could have been inserted. Raimi's original early work was cult worthy, obviously. This rewrite changes the premise of a group of college kids out for a weekend of fun led by our would be hero Bruce Campbell, to a group of slightly boring well meaning friends who wish to rehab our new heroin heroine Jane Levy.0ne of the friends a know it all nurse discounts every ounce of pending evil, including the smell of dozen dead cats to withdrawal symptoms...really??? The comparison of how Bruce ends up one armed with a chainsaw from EVIL entering his body, to how Jane ends up one armed, made no sense in the new version. Neither did the use of the cabin by another family sometime between their last visit there and the timing of the new trip there for rehab. It did leave nagging questions that made no comprehensive sense. I found the original funnier yet scarier..The new rewrite does the fim no justice...

We had a great time. It was just about everything you could hope for if you are a fan of the trilogy. All the characters were great, the ending took me by surprise even though some one had given it away to me. I'll have to get the DVD becasue I covered my eyes a few times! But fun fun fun, scary, scary, 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 GROOVY

I love this Evil Dead Trilogy and am so happy with how they went along with the original. The blood, the gore, and the chainsaw were perfection. The references from the first two brought together the subtle changes that often overpower remakes. I was surprised by the backstory, but it made the storyline make so much sense, and added a new twist to the intensity of it. I'm a horror movie buff and this actually had me on the edge of my seat. Seriously, go see this movie!

I'm not good with reviews but I will say this movie was very good. It was very good and crazy but a very good remake of the original. Loved every moment of it.
