A solid remake of the original 1981 Sam Raimi classic., 29 May 2013
Author: kyleluna from Philippines

I love the new Evil Dead and I like it a lot more than the original. I just watched this with my mom and I ended up becoming satisfied with it and then when I watched it again by myself this time while my parents watched the new Star Trek sequel Star Trek Into Darkness I still haven't changed my mind and in fact I ended up enjoying it a lot and wished that I could watch it over and over again. To be honest I love this movie and I have no problems with this movie at all and the whole film is fun, super scary, nasty and extremely gory and hardcore on the brutality. The plot of this film is the same as the original where Five teens go to a cabin and spend a summer vacation there where they are soon haunted by the demons that lurks in the woods where one of them are one by one possessed by the demons as they stay in the cabin for the whole day. Seriously there are no problems with the film at all. I don't get all of the hate of the people in IMDb about the film it has a 7.0 rating but seriously the reviews are negative. I don't accept that and I just love this movie a lot and I admit it for real. I've watched the original and the original was a classic and scary Horror movie this movie is just like the original and it keeps the spirit of the original a lot plus the movie is full of violence that is nasty and super gory at the exact same time. Plus the other good things about Evil Dead is the haunting settings of the film. The soundtrack of the movie and last but not least the special and practical effects are so wonderful and there is no CGI used in the movie at all which I liked a lot and there are gallons of effects that are well used and effective plus the gore is super cool and awesome at the same time and the blood is so nasty and extreme at the same time. Kudos also to the haunting atmosphere and the performances of the casts and Jane Levy did a good job with her role as Mia the main character of the film and she's so gorgeous for one reason. This is overall one of the best remakes ever made and I totally admit that.
