Goofs

When Marie sneaks into the cabin from one of the back windows to scare off Albin who is trying to unlock the front door and get in, the inside of the cabin is too dark and Marie finds a candle and lights it on with a match. From now on the length of the candle differs in each scene. At first it's long, at the very next scene it becomes a half shorter. Then again it's longer, then again shorter. See more »

Great practical effects and yet you feel nothing
1 December 2017 | by spencergrande6See all my reviews

This has probably the best mud-blood effects I've ever seen (mud-blood is the modern incarnation of blood that refuses to be red because that's a color and desaturation is all the rage - but in this case there's actual mud which helps). There are really good practical effects and non-stop craziness throughout and yet I still felt nothing.

It's all in service to those who came before. There's no ingenuity or true imagination at work here. It's so indebted to The Evil Dead it forgets to be its own thing and somehow winds up worse as a result. An up the ante riff on The Evil Dead shouldn't just feel like it's going through the motions. I can't quite put my finger on it, but this whole thing is just off in some way and it's all related to that somehow.

There's never a moment that makes your mind jump and heart leap at the sheer unexpectedness, the showmanship, it's just so much blood and splatter and god I hate that that sounds like a bad thing but here it is.
