Loved It!

I really liked this movie. I have been waiting for this to be made for many years and I am not disappointed. I didn't jump once in the movie, but that was because I was so interested in seeing what they did and how they threw in little bits from the original. Simply put...if you liked the original, you will like this!

Swallow your soul...

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.

More gory than Original

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.

Not bad, not great...

So, I can't say it was bad, but I can't say it was worth my $11 and almost two hours. Practical effects - absolutely great and gave the look a texture and depth that CGI effects just can't accomplish, and they seemed to add something to the acting performances. Unlike most horror films, there were no actors that stood out as bad, but they didn't dazzle either...except for the lead female - she was actually AMAZING! This was by no means a bad film, but it was like the cinematic equivalent of chinese food - hungry 30 minutes later with no recollection of what you ate. If you grew up on horror films this has NOTHING you haven't seen before. I recommend renting CABIN IN THE WOODS instead - far superior in EVERY way!

Two thumbs down...

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.
