Trivia

The famous "We're gonna get you" scene (shown in the original film and this film's trailer) didn't make it in to the theatrical cut, but supposedly will be in the DVD release. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Not the worst remake ever but...
24 May 2013 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Out of all the remakes of classic 80's horror in recent times, this was the one that I was most looking forward to and was literally shaking in my seat in the cinema when the film started. Being a massive fan of the original Evil Dead trilogy and having seen the '81 version more than 100 times (yeah, really) the trailer for this one sucked me in right away and seemed to be the one remake that they were going to get right. How then did they get it so wrong? As you can see in the trailer and read in the other reviews, the effects are spot on, the productions values are high and all-in-all it is a good looking movie.

Enough good things said about ED2013. The acting was terrible, there was no character development (the characters were woeful anyway), etc, etc. But worst of all, it just wasn't scary! Where's the horror guys? I would imagine that the bulk of people seeing this film are fans of the original and therefore would be, like myself, in their 40's. We expect more than high-tech blood n guts in a horror film these days, where's the fright-factor? And the possessed were all-so-lame! The voices and character animation in the original rocked and set the standard for hardcore demonic possession in modern horror. You would not be stealing if you had copied this trait, it would have been appreciated, even expected!

The negatives far outweigh the positives and make this just another junk teeny horror. It's a crime that such great films like Texas Chainsaw, The Omen, NIghtmare on Elm Street, Halloween and now Evil Dead have been allowed to be slapped together in these pathetic re- hashes. There is so much great horror fiction out there, how about reading some books and getting some fresh ideas if you have none of your own? Yet another sad day for horror...
