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.

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!!

Gore galore, terrifying imagery, and oh so much blood!! The last 10 minutes will have your @$$ eating your theater chair, right after you've crapped your pants from everything else. Not many remakes do it for me, but this one delivers more than I could've ever expected. The actors were perfect for their roles and the directing and production were top-notch. There is absolutely nothing "feel-good" or warm & happy about this Evil Dead. It's dark, gloomy, and gut-wrenching from the get go. I probably would NOT take children under 13 and only those above 13 that can handle massive amounts of gore and blood and literally the most horrific, demonic-possession-themed images ever crafted by an obviously superb special effects team. Not for the faint at heart or fragile-minded individuals.

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.

Way, way too much blood. There was too much people losing body parts and maybe two places that made me jump. I was very disappointed. I should have spent my money to go see scary movie 5.
