I Waited for This??
7 April 2013 | by chris-mickleySee all my reviews

I waited a long time for the release of this remake, and was very excited after seeing Fede Alvarez's "Panic Attack," knowing he was directing. What a let down. I'm saddened that Bruce Campbell, Robert Tapert and Sam Raimi were at all involved with this movie.

The differences in this and the original are great. The remake lacks the sense of dread and hopelessness of the original. The characters are thin and forgettable. This version was actually boring...

This film is nothing like the original. It is almost as though the writer and director didn't understand what made the original such a classic horror movie. As a horror movie, it was on par with pretty much everything else being released today: boring and without substance. Don't waste your money.
