When Olivia chastises Eric for his attitude towards David's past absence in Mia's life, stating "He's here now," Eric responds with a deadpan "Yeah... Truly amazing." This is one of Ash's lines from the first The Evil Dead (1981). See more »
When arriving at the cabin Mia is complaining about a really bad smell, which the others only recognize after the cellar door is opened. But since the floor is made out of wooden plates with visible gaps between then, the smell should have been noticed by everybody from the beginning. See more »
I'm shocked that Sam Raimi had anything - and actually quite a lot - to do with this cheap horror movie. I don't even feel like it was a cheap imitation of the original because it didn't even come close and I don't know why it even carries the "Evil Dead" name.
Many "scary" parts had the entire packed theater cracking up. The more the "demon" appeared, and the more she/it talked, the less scary it became... The acting was just so terrible, the writing sucked, the plot sucked, the direction sucked. The characters did things and made choices so idiotic that I just could not stand it (the 'hero' was so irritating throughout everything he did!) and suppressing laughter became quite hard.
Yes, it had gore. Plenty of gore. Most of it was unremarkable - cheap shots of random body parts covered in buckets and buckets of flowing watery fake blood. It got quite boring. Loud sound throughout the entire film, to no real effect...
Overall: No substance at all. Only good for some laughs.
