Not worth a matinée or a second viewing
5 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

I always thought it was a little risqué voting movies on either sides of a scale as far as being way too negative (1/10) or way too positive (10/10) but I honestly believe this movie is deservedly a 1/10.

I really don't want to spend most of this review talking about the details, it's pretty much the same thing from the original Dead, but each transition in the story is sloppy and careless.

Bad things happen yet the movie fails to make me care about any of it.

The transition from one event to the other gives little to no momentum for the overall narrative. Everything that transpires amongst the characters and the story as a whole is haphazardly thrown together if not just for the sake of adhering to the original Evil Dead movie and reminding you that you're watching the same movie.

There is some macabre humor put in here and there but the execution of the story is so serious it would go over your head or get a delayed reaction.

The violence in this movie is also radically over the top, and seems to be as jolted in as the rest of the plot points in the movie are. After seeing "Drag Me to Hell" it would've been interesting to see Raimi take the helm but I'll be willing to wait for his next installment to his Army of Darkness (which I loved). See another movie.
