Remake is not short on gore or build up

Not for the faint at heart because no punches were pulled on taking the viewer on a bloody, gory roller coaster ride through this remake and update of Evil Dead. Nice nods throughout for fans of the first, but past experience not required to enjoy this for what it is.

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.

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!

Not the Origninal but...

The Evil Dead is one of my all time favorite movies so I was excited to see the remake, especially knowing that the original directors and Bruce Campbell were involved. The story was different... I was hoping to see some of the same things. I was hoping to see twist on some of the gore. It was ok but seemed like a totally different movie. Seemed to go on and on at the end but entertaining if you're a fan.

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
