Well I've just finished watching this, and I have to say that I am very disappointed. If the intention was to do a remake of the original, then it failed on many levels. If you like excess of blood and gore and a weakened diluted back story you might enjoy this though.
Evil Dead 2 did a better job at attempting to remake the original (with a higher budget) and that was over twenty five years ago!
Character development was rushed and lazy, the character "Mia" was about the only likable one, but only towards the end of the film. Makeup wasn't too bad, but I'm left wondering why they needed to "update" another classic. At least we've still got the original Evil Dead films to fall back on. I expected more but was left wanting. Hopefully nobody gets any funny ideas about remaking Army of Darkness. 3/10
