Review: Five friends battle evil spirits with gory results in fantastic remake Evil Dead Some movie remakes are obsessively loyal to the point of being dull, mirror reflections of the original film. Think about Gus Van Sant and his stumbling, paint-by-the-numbers recreation of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. What’s the point? Other filmmakers undertake a complete makeover in order to transform a B-movie into something fresh and original. I’m talking about director David Cronenberg and Jeff Goldblum as the tragic scientist who becomes The Fly. Filmmaker Fede Alvarez, from Montevideo, Uruguay, of all places, reboots the 1981 cult horror classic The Evil Dead for his debut feature and strikes the perfect balance of fan reverence and fearless desire to boost the scares to new levels of shock and awe. »
