Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Sure, this is a higher-budget re-tread. But a remake shouldn't exist simply to ramp up the graphic violence, even if special effects have improved immeasurably in the past 30 years.
Fresh: What this "Evil Dead" gets most right is its tone, paying homage yet staking its own territory; it's scary without being downbeat, fun without being too jokey.
Fresh: An effectively relentless gore-fest.
Fresh: Raimi set the bar high, and if Alvarez can't quite rise to his level, he overcompensates by drowning everything in blood. It's overkill, but in this case that's not such a bad thing.
Gore for the sake of gore alone.
Pointless buckets of blood to dim your your senses with pointless remake of a classic.
If you love horror movies this one is nice the trailer made me want to see it
Best horror remake yet
I'm not a fan of most horror remakes because the majority of them are cheap cop-outs that ruin the original films. Therefore, I was very reluctant to watch the film.
I was blown away once I saw the remake in theaters. There was just enough gore and plot depth that really added substance overall. Jane Levy impressed me with her ability to take on a dramatic role and veer away from her familiarity with comedy. She was able to carry the film well. The score of the movie was brilliant and the special effects were absolutely stunning. I really admire the fact that the remake took the best from the original plot but added more to make it stand out on it's own. Some scenes were terrifying and chilling. This film will surely not dissapoint.
