Evil Damned (by Dawn)
15 November 2010 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The first thing that came into my mind, when I was watching this was "Evil Dead". Don't get me wrong, this is more glossy and has for better or worse CGI effects in it (most seem to mind, because quite frankly, they are not really that good). But the overall feeling I got, was the same as with Evil Dead. I'm not sure if that was intended or if it was just some button that got pushed with me.

I can tell you that I enjoyed most of the first half of it. It got really silly towards the end, which almost ruined it for me, but I still was entertained enough to like the movie overall. I am of course in the minority here and you probably should read another comment if you are not sure, if you should watch it. Don't mind the CGI though, because it will take you out of the movie.

Not great, but a nice little spooky picture.
