EVIL DEAD Movie Review




The Evil Dead, is not just remaking the film that launched director Sam Raimi’s career back in 1981, but It’s also following two previous sequels, several video games and a comic book collection, just to name a few. Not to mention, it’s also coming up behind a slew of rip-offs and similar look-a-likes such as the more recent Cabin in the Woods (which seems to be a kin to the popular eighties hit). After all of this Raimi, along with the new director Fede Alvarez, should have been more than prepared to live up to the challenges of a remake. With this script being armed with an ultra mean spirit, relentless intensity, and buckets of both practical and digital gore, somehow it fell short of what one should expect of any remake that involved original contributors such as Raimi himself. 

Having been a fan of the original I would go as far as to say that this latest effort doesn’t pander to the oceans of devoted fans of the original (Until the flick’s final post-credit shot, which can absolutely be skipped). Instead, it takes an all too familiar plot, very familiar scary movie tactics or character traits, and even rules about the “Candarian demons, Book of the Dead,” and the sickness that’s spreading to the group and gives it all a bit of a modern touch that does very little for the movie. It’s this latter way Alvarez attempts to use familiarity of the franchise against the audience that makes this Evil Dead screenplay all the less intriguing. Nonetheless In that sense, its success as a horror film is undeniable, even if it leans more towards making its audience squirm rather than sending real scares down its collective spine.
