Blu-ray Review - Evil Dead (2013)

13 August 2013 10:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Evil Dead, 2013.

Directed by Fede Alvarez.

Starring Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore.

Synopsis:

Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival.

Over the past few years we've seen virtually every iconic horror franchise get the remake treatment, usually to huge fan outcry and less-than-impressive results (see A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Friday the 13th, The Amityville Horror, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, et al). However, this year's remake of Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead managed to avoid much of the criticism typically reserved for such endeavours; perhaps it was down to the original Evil Dead trio of Raimi, Bob Tapert and Bruce Campbell being involved as producers, or the »

DVD Review: 'Evil Dead'

11 August 2013 11:44 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ A reboot/rehash/reimagining of Sam Raimi's 1981 cult horror hit The Evil Dead (so successful at the time as to spawn two manic sequels, both starring the inimitable Bruce Campbell), debut director Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead (2013) proves to be a surprisingly reverent, if generically constrained, teen splatterfest. Hoping to bridge the gap between its own universe and that of the original outings (three more films are planned: a direct sequel; a sequel to 1992's Army of Darkness; and an all-encompassing finale), Alvarez's franchise entry has little of Raimi's wild humour, but certainly packs in the bloodshed.

Expanding upon the original film's set-up, five more naive teenage friends gather at a remote woodland cabin to help one of their party, Mia (TV star Jane Levy), kick her damaging heroin addiction. Mia is joined by brother David (Shiloh Fernandez), his girlfriend Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore) and their attractive companions Olivia (Jessica Lucas »

20 July 2013 2:22 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We sat down with director Fede Alvarez at the Movies on Demand Lounge at the Hard Rock during the San Diego Comic-Con to get you cats the scoop on the film's inevitable sequel and more. Read on for details and info.

First on our agenda we wanted to know the scoop on if and when there will be an extended cut of the film released as an alternate extended version was referenced in the Blu-ray commentary several times. "People are always asking me about the director's cut of the film," Alvarez tells us. "Honestly though, the version out right now Is the director's cut. I feel it is the best cut of the movie and it's also my favorite. We really didn't cut much as the MPAA had us make only minimal trims, like when Jane cut her tongue in half, we could only show that for two seconds instead of three. »

Fede Alvarez Talks Evil Dead Sequel

16 July 2013 11:33 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

With his version of Evil Dead finally available on Blu-ray and DVD, director Fede Alvarez has been a bit more chatty regarding its sequel, whether it be Evil Dead 2 or Army of Darkness 2. Check it out!

Collider caught up with Alvarez. who had the following to say about what's next:

"We’re discussing. We’re still talking with Sam [Raimi] about it and trying to figure out what we should do.Maybe because I’m a child of the 80′s, but for me a sequel is a story that follows the previous one, and sometimes if you haven’t seen the original, then you don’t understand the second one. So that’s kind of my ideal sequel – a movie that continues the story, takes one character and moves on, and moves forward with that character that survived with the first one.”

Given that we adored Jane Levy, yes, bring more on with her! »

Horror Redo Evil Dead Coming to DVD and Blu-ray this July

29 May 2013 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

The Us are set to receive Fede Alvarez's 'Evil Dead' remake on both DVD and Blu-ray from 16 July. Along with the announcement comes the Blu-ray artwork which will also feature a digital copy of the movie full of high-def blood and gore. The UK will have to wait a little longer for the DVD and Blu-ray which will hit stores on 12 August. The Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Rob Tapert produced reimagining landed in theatres last month so its a quick turnaround for the home release but still looks to be chock-a-bloc full of featurettes, commentaries and other special behind the scenes documentaries. The redo stars Jane Levy ('Suburgatory'), Shiloh Fernandez ('Red Riding Hood'), Jessica Lucas ('Cloverfield'), Lou Taylor Pucci ('Carriers') and Elizabeth Blackmore. Check out the Blu-ray artwork and full list of special features below. »

Evil Dead Announced for Blu-ray and DVD

28 May 2013 1:52 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It's coming, kids! Faster than a demon barreling through the woods, the remake of the Sam Raimi classic Evil Dead is hitting Blu-ray and DVD, and we have the early word for you right here! Dig it!

Sony Pictures is unleashing the film onto Blu-ray and DVD with UltraViolet on July 16th. No word on if there will be an unrated cut included or not. Let's hope so. No one likes to double dip!

Ghost House Pictures produced the much anticipated remake of The Evil Dead, the film that effectively launched the careers of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise, Darkman, Drag Me to Hell), Rob Tapert (30 Days of Night), and Bruce Campbell, who played the Ash character and was co-producer of the original. They are now back to produce an Evil Dead for today's audience that's high on the horror, gore, plot twists, and more from a screenplay written by Fede Alvarez »

Evil Dead - Portugal Forgoes the Need for Obituaries

18 May 2013 7:05 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The advertising industry in America has become so ridiculously homogenized it almost feels as if creativity itself has died a slow and painful death. Take the remake of Evil Dead for instance. We got your standard stuff. Elsewhere had some fun!

Bloody Disgusting pointed us towards the website 9 the Creative Shop, who recently scanned and published an ad that appeared in their newspaper's obituaries section. The kicker? Since the dead were returning to life, the areas where the names of the recently deceased would appear were left blank. Pretty nifty! Take a look!

Ru? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 53 – Evil Dead

25 April 2013 7:12 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Rather surprisingly, we hated this one. We’re both fans of the original, and even just the concept and effort involved in the original, but this movie couldn’t be worse. It’s as though Cabin in the Woods is somehow the magical time travel spoof of this movie, except that Evil Dead is actually self-mockery to a degree as well.

Nothing interesting happens, and almost with malice aforethought. It’s almost as though the film is trying to showcase the idea that this niche genre is indeed dead, as it runs through cliche after cliche, and the only thing it has to say is that people in horror movies have to be idiots.

Nevertheless, I do like Jane Levy, and I had to admit that I felt for all the actors here, which bumped me up for zero stars. Plus, I think it made for an interesting show.

Exclusive Modern Masters of Horror Interview Series - Fede Alvarez on Evil Dead

20 April 2013 8:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Fede Alvarez came out of nowhere. No, really though, he just showed up in town a few years ago and here he is grossing nearly $50 million with his first studio production, Evil Dead.

Plucked from seeming obscurity by the producers at Ghost House Pictures, Fede was lucky enough to get noticed by an animated short he created in 2009, called Panic Attack. The short went viral on YouTube. A few weeks later Fede’s phone rang. Ghost House was on the line. The next day he was flying to Hollywood to discuss a contract for his first feature.

People can point a frustrated finger at Fede’s fairytale rise to fame. But for Fede, his journey did not begin with Panic Attack as his first project. Fede had been making films his whole life. More importantly, before he was taken on by a studio, Fede was making films simply because he »
