    Synopsis


    Evil Dead
    A trip into the woods turns into a terrifying battle against the forces of evil in this remake of Sam Raimi's ferocious 1981 horror classic. Mia (Jane Levy) is a heroin addict whose most recent overdose was nearly her last. Recognizing that she won't survive another, Mia's longtime friends Olivia (Jessica Lucas) and Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci) take the troubled girl to her family's old cabin in the woods to quit cold turkey. It isn't their first attempt, but this time they're hoping that with Mia's brother David (Shiloh Fernandez) around, she'll have the support she needs to weather the coming storm. The moment David arrives at the cabin with his girlfriend Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore), strange things start to happen; Mia complains about a foul smell that none of her friends can sense, and upon descending into the fruit cellar David and Eric discover what appears to be the scene of a dark ritual. Scattered amongst the animal corpses and mysterious artifacts is an old book that's been sealed shut with heavy-duty plastic and barbed wire. Intrigued, Eric manages to cut the book free and makes a disturbing discovery -- the book has been bound in human flesh, and it comes with an incantation that will unleash a powerful force of evil. Ignoring the warnings not to speak or even hear the incantation, Eric reads the words aloud, sealing his own dark fate, as well as those of his closest friends. One by one they will be possessed until no soul has been left unclaimed. The lucky ones will die first, their souls condemned to suffer as their bodies are twisted into an obscene aberration of flesh. Will the last person standing have the courage to send these sadistic demons back to hell, even if it means killing their friends and loved ones in the worst way imaginable, or will the forces unleashed by this unholy book prove too powerful for any one mortal to defeat?, Rovi

      To remake or not to remake... Not to remake.

      Another day, another remake Hollywood decided to make and dump on the fans of the original. Granted some remakes are decent in their own right (The Hills Have Eyes), most outright stink (Too many to list) and there are those very few that manage to match or even exceed the original (The Thing). Sadly, but predictably, this film is one of the unneeded but still fairly decent and diverting for 90 minutes. Sam Raimi's original, while not my favorite nor is it "scary", is a classic horror film with Raimi's unique style and humor with some very gruesome scenes such as a scene where one of the characters gets.... let's say gets real acquainted with a tree. The best part of the film is the hero, Ash played by horror icon Bruce Campbell. The remake pretty much fails to offer anything as good as the original. I do like the nice visuals, the largely practical blood and special effects, and some of the kills are fairly inventive as well. Sadly, the script pretty much steals most of the original story beats (Old cabin holding the Necrominicon, some of kills of the first, etc.) and the characters are very, very STUPID. Stick with the original and only watch out of slight curiosity and probably purchase if its like $5 or less. The PQ is filmed on modern digital cameras and is too smooth for my taste (The original's 16mm photography is terrific and pitch perfect in my books) but does look quite nice with awesome detail of the all the gore, landscapes, actors and sets. The audio is also fantastic with nice bass, great directionality in scenes and natural sounding dialogue. The extras, while not as plentiful as the much re-released films of the previous films, does have some nice extras for fans. The commentary is the best extra with the cast, director and co-writer offering up nice info about how the script came to be, background about the film, behind the scenes info and more, while nothing earth-shattering is a good listen. 5 featurettes, and previews for other Sony films and a UV copy complete the nice extras package, though a feature-length documentary could have been awesome (If you have the BBY exclusive, which sadly, I do not, offers a bonus disc with an interview with Ash himself and a featurette about the special effects). All in all, a nice package for a decent movie, but only buy if its part of the Savestation sale or around $10 or less.

      The best you will get without Ash

      I have to say that I really enjoyed this movie. It is a remake so clearly if you have seen the original it will be may be difficult to enjoy this film. If you are at all accepting of remakes I think that you will enjoy this. This movie takes the 80's version and does try to update it. This movie has non of the suspense of the original but it definitely has a really fun amount of gore. I am hesitating to use the word creative here but there is definitely a but more to the bloodiness of this than the original. There are many cringe-inducing moments that come along with the buckets of blood. The characters start out a bit wooden but some of them do shine a bit more than you would expect. One thing I have to say about this movie is that I really feel that it did a good job of keeping me guessing as to who would be the new Ash. We know there will be a survivor in the end, and without having watched any of the trailers I really felt the suspense as to who would be crowned the King Baby. It is extremely difficult to separate Ash from the Evil Dead Series, but I do think that this movie is as successful as you are going to get. They didn't try to just have a new zany character that acts just like him, attempting to do such a thing would have felt as natural as Ted McKinleys presence in the final seasons of Happy Days. I would also love to argue that people mainly love the evil dead series due to the comedy aspects of parts 2 and 3 but I am very affraid of the backlack I might receive. This movie attempts to do what the original did in its own way and I think it was successful. Help other customers find the most helpf

      A Decent Remake

      This remake of EVIL DEAD is a decent flick in it's own right. It uses a good amount of elements from the original EVIL DEAD but also adds a lot of it's own. Parts of the story come straight from the original (the cabin in the woods, the book of the dead, etc) , but other parts, such as everyone going to the cabin to help one girl kick her drug addiction, are new and welcome. The pacing starts off a little slow, but when the flick finally kicks in, about half way through, the result is a frenzied mix of blood and mayhem sure to satisfy the gorehound in you. Although not as creepy as the original, this remake does manage to contain a few scenes of it's own creepiness along with a great bunch of make-up and gore effects. The final 20 minutes of the movie are drenched in much welcomed blood and give the flick a great visual climax. Extras include featurettes on the making of this movie with interviews from the director as well as cast and crew. Overall I would recommend this Blu Ray to anyone looking for a bloody good time.

      Reboot or Remake?

      I don't know if this was a remake/reboot or prequel/sequel. There are plenty of gory scenes just like the original (if you're into that). Sam Rami and Bruce Campbell have said this is what they envisioned the Original Evil Dead to be like. I hope they really didn't mean that. To me the film felt rushed and not polished. More background could have been done for the opening scene characters. Like who where the rangy people that helped track down the possessed girl? Overall the film was enjoyable. I tried not to give to many detail so I wouldn't spoil it for the people that have not seen the movie yet. I will say to the people that saw the original do not go into the movie expecting the same thing as the original. If you do then you may be highly disappointed. I hope this review was helpful.

      Loved the original, absolutely lived this retelling even more! I know, all you die hard fans may disagree with me, but it was never meant to be an exact replica, hence the lack of the iconic character Ash (whose legendary they never had any intention of messing with). This movie is full, and I mean FULL of gore and terror! A must-own for any horror fan! Extras were generic behind the scenes interviews and rid bits on the creation and philosophy of the film. So stop and reading and buy this movie!

      Great film despite what diehard fans of the original say. I prefer this take over the originals and their silly nature. This film is much more serious and has a darker mood. If you're looking for something more like the original series, then I suggest you check out the Ash vs Evil Dead tv series, its comedic and silly and is actually quite interesting.

      am a total fan boy of the original Evil Dead trilogy that I was glad to see they went a different direction. I knew that it had to be good because both Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell were producers on the film. They did none of the campy fun from the original and went full blown horror. The young actors all did a great job and it leaves a resonating creepiness with you. When I saw this in the theatre there was a young woman behind us crying.
