Generally, I'm not a big fan of remakes hence why Hollywood needs to give me a call. ;D lol. But I have to say, this was a remake worth seeing. Now I know what people were thinking from the get go, "Oh they just added more gore and unnessesary violence." But all that is just an excuse for people not to give this movie a chance. As a fan of the original, this stays true to the purpose of the story with the exception of the comedic prescence.
This is straight horror through the movie, no breaks or moments of relief. This movie is like taking a shot of 151 proof alcohol. You better be ready to lose you breath or you better not go and watch this movie because this movie is no stop thrill ride. Be warned there is a scene of intense violence and rape that will make your stomach turn if you're not comfortable seeing that sort of thing. There have been a lot of let downs when it comes to horror remakes but this remake stands out.
Introducing a virtually unknown cast and staying true to a cult following, Evil Dead is a remake that it's so good, the only problem I had with it is that it should've been released in October. This is one of those horror movies you have to be with a crowd to full appreciate the affect of this movie. I truly hope a sequel is in the near future. Speaking of near future, if you go see this movie there was a trailer for the remake "Carrie." As a Stephen King fan, they better not mess up that classic.
