evil

I am the drooling fanboy that this film was made for, but despite a rather amusing blood-soaked climax and cute nods to the original’s music and camerawork, Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead doesn’t have the mood and no-budget craftiness that breaths life into the tired ideas of Sam Raimi’s original, making it the third best remake of The Evil Dead, trailing behind Cabin in the Woods and that one episode of Reboot.
