After Mia crashes the car into the pond, the car has its footwells full of water. The doors are above the water line and at such an angle that it could not flood as shown. The car's depth in the pond is also inconsistent with the area immediately around the car; Mia exits the car and into the water at a depth near her waist. See more »

I love the original, I love Evil Dead II and I was pretty eager to see this flick. "Most shocking ... bla, bla, bla", OK, I don't care for the stunts the marketing guys try to pull off.
After 30 minutes I thought: "Hmm, when does it start?" After 60 minutes I thought: "Let's hope for the best ..." After 90 minutes I thought: "Damn, what a waste." I wasn't shocked, I was as bored as watching a commercial for a hardware store. Hammer, nails, chainsaw - you name it, they are all in there. What else? Characters I did not care for, gore that was gore for gore's sake, a funny demon straight from The Ring and annoying music.
No jokes, no over-the-top-humor, no fast pace action, nothing evil.
Sorry, Mr. Raimi, I cannot believe you liked that movie.
Next time, let Peter Jackson do a low budget remake. I guess that would rock.
