If you are a TRUE fan of " EVIL DEAD" you should pass on this one....I was SOoooo disappointed. This version might have been good had I not seen and loved the original. I give this one an "F" for FAILURE!

This movie was good and worth seeing. It kept me on edge. I would not bring the kids though as the gore is at an all time high.

Loved the film, they paid their homage to the first ones and they made it their own. AND IT DIDNT NEED 3-D & glad it didn't come out in it!! Cant wait for it to come out on Blu-Ray,

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!

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!
