Okay first things first. All sour fanboys who say that this does not pay homage to the original. What movie did you see? Everything in it was a homage to Evil dead. Didn't you guys see the car or the chainsaw did you not hear the old text when Mia breaks the window. You shouldn't smoke or drink as much before seeing a movie.
It takes a lot for me to cringe while watching a movie and this one did that several times. Really anyone who gives this less than an 8 can not appreciate something made with great commitment. When i was young like 15 years old i saw the original which i loved instantly. This is in my top ten instantly too if only for the great practical FX. Something special was made here and anyone who says different is WRONG.
I must admit there are some stupid things like the self made defibrillator and other but that ending just was a perfect 'abomination'.........
On the big silver screen.
