Holds up respectfully to the original... with enough twists and ferocity to stand on its own!

It's really a remake of the first 2 Evil Dead movies.. lots of nods to both. I'm looking forward to the sequel, which should be all new ground. Fans of the series... stay til the end of the credits!

Extremely gory, scary sh## ... pretty good movie. Gives you that agita feeling throughout. Can't believe 8 year olds were in our movie theatre (84th St. AMC). Accompanied by adults of course, but what's wrong with people?

Disappointing

By jhs39

Disappointing Evil Dead remake ups the violence and gore quotient from the original classic and also has a significantly higher budget. But it completely lacks the sense of fun and mischief that made the original movie special and features characters so bland and unlikable that it's hard to have any rooting interest in whether any of them survive. Some of the gore is mildly entertaining since it's so extreme and over the top but this should have been much, much better. Despite what the poster says this Evil Dead is not the scariest movie you will ever see. I didn't even find it scary. At all. But gross is another matter. If you're squeamish you might find yourself covering your eyes a few times but you won't necessarily have all that much fun doing it.

BY FAR THE BEST REMAKE OF A HORROR MOVIE YET!

I went to see this movie yesterday excited that Bruce Campbell was the producer and had something to do with this movie and it worked! I went by myself and it was AWESOME! Just like I said in the title I was blown away with the acting, storyline and special effects! I am adding this one to my collection when it comes out! I hope they keep going by remaking Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness! I love it!

If you've seen Cabin in the Woods, this movie turns into a comedy

Full disclosure, I'm not a horror movie aficionada or geek. I only watch them on the rare occasion. I found this movie so formulaic it was comical. Lots of jump scares to get the adrenaline going but other than that, I was giggling. The acting was mediocre, the characters were the right level of unintelligent to get themselves killed, the villain was a mix of the Grudge and a foul mouthed high schooler. That said, it was probably perfect for it's genre so it was so-so for me.
