The abandon car Mia is sitting on in the beginning of the film is a 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88, the same car used in the first two Evil Dead films and Army of Darkness. Sam Raimi also featured it his other films including Crimewave, Darkman, A Simple Plan, The Gift, Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3 and Drag Me To Hell See more »
In the beginning of the movie, Mia makes David cross his heart. He makes the motion over opposite side of his body (his right side). See more »

I thought I told you to throw that away.
You don't understand. This could be a real find. I'm still trying to figure out the language. Maybe some guys from the school library an help me out. Could be worth some serious dough.
Yeah, why don't you put that down and go help out your best buddy?
I don't know who you're talking about.
Come on, don't act like you don't give a fuck about him. I know you do.
Well, I think we can all agree that he didn't ...

With all the horror remakes that have been released in the past few years, this has been the first one I've opted to view in theaters. Almost entirely disinclined to see this movie, I ultimately decided to give it a go with all the positive hype completely captivating my interest. And I can say upon viewing it...Well, IT SUCKS!
"The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience."
If I didn't know any better that tagline conned us all. Quite a miserable, but effective deception it is. In all seriousness, what's terrifying is that I spent 10 large bucks of my hard-earned cash to see this so called "Evil Dead" movie (I could have spent it on dinner... What a shame). The problem with this film, is that it lacks Sam Raimi's direction. The difference between this and the Raimi films is that Raimi's contains humor, wit, productive creativity and above all they are actually scary! This is directed by a no-name Uruguayan who lacks the ability to inflict psychological fear into the viewer's mind, so he thinks he can make up for it by piling in annoyingly loud, screaming moments and overdone gruesome, blood-splatter scenes which leave you shaking your head more so than cringing in fear.
The acting is mediocre, the characters are moronic, the writing is horrible, the score is loud and uninspired, the direction sucks and overall, so does the movie! All this movie has to offer is the butchering of the human anatomy, and if people really enjoy watching that, then they're probably just some morbid fiends.
The biggest disappointment is that Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell produced this. I actually tried enjoying it for that very reason, but it's just so bad I can't help but to think of it as being what it truly is: Horrendous. Supposedly a sequel to this trash is already in the works. Well, you can count me out.
