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

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!

Great movie remake with a more serious horror overtone vs original movie comedy-like feel. The gore was fabulous & overall movie was well delivered. Now anxious about a Prequel or Sequel. This is definitely a must see for horror & gore fans!!! You truly won't be disappointed!!!

There is virtually no set-up for the story line - the characters just appear in the woods at a cabin. The gore made me physically ill at least twice, and I'm *not* the type of person to have such a reaction to a movie.
The acting was respectable, and the effects were convincing - as evidenced by the audience's reaction to the gore.
Wait for it on Netflix.

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.
