If you have seen the original, then give this copy a wide berth. The acting is naff, the blood is as faked as it gets, and the only scary part is the price one has to pay to watch it. Scariest film of the year? No way. Worst film of the year? Yes. Sam should have known better than to try and go one better than that which he's already succeeded in. As far as I'm concerned its off in the bin. No point in cluttering shelf space on this version.

  All the things I wouldn't do

Saw this recently and it was quite a rollercoaster of gory mess and broken bones. Had the best bits of all your favourite films; Final Destination, Evil Dead, Cabin in the woods mixed up in a pot and spread out over an hour and a half. I'm giving it 3 stars, beacuse even though it had the makings and the ingredients of a good horror film I just found it insulted peoples intelligence in a number of places. If I was to tell you it'd be spoilers.. but just expect to be shouting at the TV with things like "Why would you do that?" "Whats wrong with the girl?!" "I would NOT be going down there".. and really, if theres something sinister afoot.. bloody stick together! or.. not.. go off on your own why dont you *facepalm*

  One of the best remakes

I saw this movie at the cinema and I have been obsessing over it since. I really really enjoyed it. I'm so glad to see the bluray comes with a lot of special features although some deleted scenes/extended edition and bloopers wouldve made it a tad better but regardless the movie is amazing!

The Evil Dead remake is finally released, but it's doesn't have a great deal in common with the original. The story has been tweaked, the evil has been tweaked, and the scares have changed. The movie is a little slow to get going, for around 30minutes it builds story, after this it goes Haywire! The final hour takes you to hell and back. There is a lot of unexpected moments, and a lot of gruesome things to see. The action is very close up, the use of blood is in excess, and many other fluids flow. The main Evil has taken a new shape, it is a combination of Evil Dead, Exorcist and The Ring put together, creating a very creepy and eerie being. I'd been waiting for this movie for a long time, and now it's finally arrived, and I am not disappointed! Entertaining with some good scares. Recommended

  Really good...not a remake

The most important thing to keep in mind is this is NOT a remake nor can it be considered a prequel..where does it fit? well rumor has it that there will be sequels and the possibility of bringing an aged Ash played by Campbell has not been ruled out. I say not a remake, there are a few nods to the original. Thankfully there is no humour here which from my own preference is great as I always found this hindered the sequels in a big way, horror should be horror unless its Gremlins. Some scenes will have you creeped out and others are pretty squeemy. Its a good film, probably the best rehash I have seen in a long time. Im off to see it again before it leaves the cinemas hehe.

Most remakes are greeted with dread, but once in a while a remake gets made that the fans of the original are eager to see and this remake is one. Things have changed in the version, gone is the comedy and a much darker tone settles in and with it a slow build up. The thing that this update does well is the build up, the woods are really menacingly shot as dark shadows hang over the lodge. Some of the quick flash images unsettle as it hints at what we are wanting to happen and when they do some of the old school effects are brilliant, as the cast slowly start to become possessed and disfigure themselves to startling effects, faces get slashed, skulls get stoved, tongues get slices and limbs get severed, not to mention a nail gun attack. Also a nice rug-pull of you expect who will survive is a good addition to the formular. But there are a few niggles, The back story opening is unneeded, the characters are poorly written ( a fault with the original ) so you don't care who survives and the demon smack down at the end is a little under-whelming. But it's the bloody onslaught that counts and this does deliver by the bucket loads.A few niggles a side this should give most fans what they were wanting and please new fans to give us a sequel.
