In truth this was always going to struggle to appease many of the horror hordes, Sam Raimi’s original film held up as some sort of religious artifact that should never be tempered with – this even though it was considerably trumped by the sequel (erm: remake). Is it fair to say that even before it was released there were those hating it? It certainly seemed that way.
Can you judge this piece of horror film making on its own terms? Are there a new breed of horror film fans out there whom haven’t seen Raimi’s trilogy and therefore can go into it and get the tar shocked out of them? I hope so because this is a rip-snorter of a remake. Full of jumps, guts, gore, and genuine moments of terror, with Fede Alvarez and his team adding some fresh touches to Raimi’s original nightmare.
It is what it is, a horror remake of an old favourite that ramps up the horror and uses the tools available to splinter the ears – turn the stomach – and fray the nerves. It’s illogical, daft even at times, but this is one of the better horror remakes of recent times, a real pant soiler. Bravo you undead muthas. 8/10
David and Mia are brother and sister. As children, they vacationed in the family cabin, far out in the woods. As they got older, David took off, leaving Mia caring for their sick and ultimately dying mother. When mum threw a seven, Mia went downhill, and hit the class “A”‘s. She hit the drugs so hard in fact that she even technically died at one point, only to be brought back from the brink in a quite portentous bit of backstory. Well, enough’s enough. David’s back, and he, his girlfriend Natalie, and a couple more close mates of theirs, Eric and Olivia, intend to take her up to the old family cabin in the woods and force her to go cold turkey for a weekend. That’ll learn her.
What’s the deal with these cabins in American films and shows and whatnot? They always seem to be miles away from any recognisable civilisation. Do the owners own the land, and just decide to build a log cabin? How does one just take ownership of a patch of forest out in the middle of nowhere? I mean, they’re never in a larger holiday park environment that’s regularly patrolled and maintained. They’re never one of a dozen by a beautiful lake, with neighbours here and there. No, they’re always out in the deep wild nothing. It’s like holidaying in a shed. Who’d do that? Also, the property is ripe for other people to just break in and use the place for their own nefarious ends: Free holiday? Crystal meth flop-house? Sex dungeon? A serial murderer’s kill-room?
Kandarian demon incantations, resurrections and exorcisms?
Unluckily for our merry bunch of interventionists, that’s exactly what’s been going on down in the cellar of their cabin. Mia – hypersensitive as a result of her withdrawal – and the dog they’ve brought along can smell… well, a bad smell in the house. Upon investigation they find the cellar door, and through the cellar into another door they find a room full of skinned dead cats and similar small animals, all hanging off the ceiling by meat hooks. There’s something else: A package wrapped in black bags, further enclosed in barbed wire. Someone obviously didn’t want this package opened. Well, curiosity seems to have killed a bunch of cats already, and now it’s going to have a crack at these guys. They open the package and, of course, it’s The Book of The Dead. The tape player from the 1981 original is gone but in this version, fragments of the Kandarian script have been translated and written in English. And when they’re read out, all hell breaks loose in soul-swallowingly familiar fashion. One by one, we will take you.
I liked this film, but it’s a frustrating beast, for sure. On the one hand, it’s as gory as f*ck, the sound design is superb, the movie is strewn with nods to both The Evil Dead (1981) and Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn (1987) without those nods seeming too hokey and the actors, whilst not especially outstanding, are at least as effective as the original cast (Bruce Campbell excepted, of course. There is no adequate substitution for him here and, in fairness to the new film, how could there be?). On the other hand… look: The “intervention” plotline was a great reason for the group going up into an isolated place, and it continued as a great device for when Mia started seeing and experiencing crazy Evil Deaddery (the woods-raping-the-girl scene from the Raimi original? It’s back, baby! Sort-of); they put it down to her withdrawal. At best, she’s lying so’s they can all go home and she can get munted. At worst, she’s bugging out. Except that, very early on in the proceedings, following Mia’s insistence that there was a smell in the house, the boys, David and Eric (David, Eric, Mia, Olivia, Natalie. Cool, no? No.) discover the cat-swinging signs of foul witchcraft in the cellar (which we the viewers are privy to in the very first scene btw, before we even meet our protagonists), meaning they no longer have to put the weirdness down to Mia having a cold turkey episode. Just leave the premises, call it in at the nearest cop-shop, job done. So why don’t they do this?
Because the characters in Evil Dead are prone to making some of the most pinheaded decisions I’ve seen in a horror film in maybe twenty years. And horror as you all know is a genre beset with characters who make pinheaded decisions, right? Well, the Evil Dead quintet make the average bunch of Camp Crystal Lake dirty-weekenders look like astro-physicists. I don’t want to give away specific set-pieces but these characters seemed to have opportunity after opportunity to get away from what was happening to them. Their dunderheaded refusal to do anything but stumble towards their own demise caused me to lose any and all sympathy for them, and when you stop caring, the tension disappears down the plughole. While we were watching the movie, my missus said at one point: “Yeah, but if they did that (ie the right thing), there wouldn’t be a film, would there?” But, in this day and age (and with the superior budget and skills availed to these remakes), I’m not prepared to buy that. There needs to be more. And in this case, the “intervention” plotline at the very beginning of the movie seemed to kick things off on the right note. It was the last decision by the characters that made any logical sense. The end fell apart too, but don’t virtually all horrors unravel in the final fifteen? It certainly seems that way.
Still, I liked it, as I said. Didn’t love it as I really hoped that I would, but I liked it. I suppose. In a way. Anyone not into horror will not come anywhere near anyway, but lovers of all things gruesome will find Evil Dead an entertaining waste of a nice and crisp ninety minutes. You’ll see not even a modicum of common sense on display, but then that’s not why you came, is it?
Not a worthy remake
Usually good or even great remakes go in a different direction but has certain similarities to the point you can call it a remake but better or at least as good or even near good. Or go in a similar direction but has it’s own flare for it to be worth a remake. But that really isn’t the case for this one. All of the characters in this combined just couldn’t replace Bruce Campbell as Ash. And never felt even remotely attached to any of them. It’s 2013 and it there is better technology to make things appear real. And although the original “Evil Dead 1 and 2” lacked the technology and looks fake in certain areas. It’s just a more scary and suspenseful movie, plus it’s even creepy and has uncomfortable dark humor to go with it. This remake lacks everyone of these elements. Sure it has more graphic imagery that is cringe worthy and I did cringe during few scenes. Although I have seen even more graphic movies before. But I never felt like I was entertained or scared. And I do think this movie’s tagline is false, it’s just isn’t all that terrifying. The beginning few minutes starts out well and eerie but it quickly becomes dull. I just don’t get the constant positive reviews this movie is getting. It’s actually somewhat of a hit at box office so there will be a sequel but currently just isn’t interested or hyped for it. I think I rather re-watch the whole original “Evil Dead” trilogy. Or just re-watch “The Cabin in the Woods” which the makers of this movie was probably inspired by because of it’s success. Although “The Cabin in the Woods” was inspired by many many different horror movies. The thing is Sam Raimi actually help produce this movie and it is still a let down. Some things don’t even make much sense near the end of the movie either.
Absolutely Loved it !!! BRUTAL !!!!
One of the best horror movies I have ever seen. Brutal and very scary . Having said that , you will probably enjoy this movie even more if you haven’t seen the original !! I have tried many times to watch the original but for me its too cheesy and old .. I’m into more modern movies these days and I know its supposed to be a classic but its just not for me , that’s why I was so looking forward to seeing the remake . In my opinion it was fantastic . Deffo one of the best remakes ever made . I was hiding behind the pillow for most of the movie lol and it gets straight into the action and horror from beginning to end keeps you on the edge of your seat its great .
10/10 from me !! well done !!
