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?
If you like bloody movies, this one is made for you!
Evil Dead is a remake of the 1981 original “the Evil Dead”. I didn’t have the chance to watch the original yet, so I’m going to review this without comparing it with the original.
The movie actually starts out pretty slow, for the first 40 minutes there isn’t any creepy parts and it actually bores me. Usually, movies start off slow to develop they’re characters or stories, however, I find the first 30 minutes unnecessary. However, Evil Dead deserves its wait. Evil Dead has some of the goriest and most disturbing scenes I’ve seen in movies. There’s blood EVERYWHERE and the movie make them look real good! The movie mostly uses makeups and proves that a bloody movie can stand by its own without CGI.
Another thing I like about Evil Dead is the directing. There are many beautifully-shot scenes which makes the movie very enjoyable. For example, the director sets the cameras in different angles, such as the floor or close to the wall, which makes it extraordinary from other films.
On the other hand, Evil Dead lacks character developments, but for its own sake, bloody horror doesn’t really need character developments. Characters make stupid decisions and eventually will die out one by one, so it’s not really a big deal.
There isn’t really a plot or twists in Evil Dead. Everything is presented directly. If you haven’t watch this without watching the trailers, the movie is what you thought it will be.
Evil Dead is enjoyable for a movie night if you do not care too much on the details. Just sit back and enjoy the gore, it’s real fun.
Graphic But Not As Great As The Original “Evil Dead”
The harrowing imagery alone makes the “Evil Dead” remake worth the price of admission. “Spider-Man” helmer Sam Raimi directed the original “Evil Dead” back in 1981. He swirled horror with humor in a low-budget scream-fest with a no-name cast. Despite its crappy special effects, this supernatural splatter-spoof ranks as a cult favorite among gorehounds. Raimi went on to direct two sequels, and Bruce Campbell attained the status of B-movie hero. The skewered cinematography, atmospheric settings, and maniacal urgency made this contrived 85 minute nonsense unforgettable. Comparatively, in his directorial debut, writer & director Fede Alvarez, abetted by co-scenarists Rodo Sayagues and Diablo Cody, has preserved the premise of the Raimi classic. Nevertheless, he has shunned Raimi’s ghoulish but campy approach. Moreover, the Uruguayan native has ramped up the gore far more than Raimi dared. In fact, Alvarez has knocked the bottom out with some elaborately orchestrated carnage that makes the “Saw” movies look tame. One scene depicts a girl mutilating her arm with an electric carving knife. The MPAA must have felt in a charitable mood when they gave “Evil Dead” an R-rating “for strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language.” The visual CGI effects are designed to make you regurgitate. Make no mistake; Alvarez has conjured up one hellacious nightmare of a movie. One of the girls acts as if she were auditioning for “The Ring” (1998) rather than “The Evil Dead.” She crawls around on her hands with her hair in her eyes and blood and gore all over her body. Indeed, the isolated cabin-in-the-woods plot provides an excuse for ample mutilation, rampant dismemberment, and buckets of blood. Unlike the original, Alvarez’s “Evil Dead” doesn’t duplicate the bucolic rape of one of the girls. Alvarez doesn’t plunge the bole of a tree between her thighs as Raimi did in the original. Instead, Alvarez has a sinister witch cough up a skein of black licorice that crawls up and into the struggling girl’s mouth.
In the 1981 original “Evil Dead,” five Michigan State college students cruised up to a ramshackle cabin in the middle of nowhere to enjoy Spring Break. They discover a tape recording and a book fashioned from human flesh in the basement. One of them recites passages aloud from the forbidden text. The combination of the Book of the Dead being opened and its incantations being uttered summons evil. Predictably, all Hell breaks loose. The big change in the remake is Alvarez provides an incendiary prologue. Two men manhandle a girl into a basement and lash her to a post. The girl’s father incinerates her while a crone mutters incantations from the same Book of the Dead. As an opening gambit, this torture scene prepares us for the pandemonium that ensues. Level-headed college students made up the original “Evil Dead” group. The remake deploys a group of friends rehabilitating one of their own. Mia (Jane Levy of “Fun Size”) has a monkey on her back in the form of heroin. After spending several years apart from each other, she is reunited with her older brother, David (Shiloh Fernandez of “Red”), who knows nothing about her addiction. The two share some bad memories. Namely, David left Mia to contend with their dying, mentally distraught mom. Not only is Mia a heroin junkie, but also this isn’t the first time she has tried to conquer her craving. As Olivia (Jessica Lucas of “Clovefield”) informs David, she and her friends don’t intend to let Mia bail out of the treatment. For the record, David is the vague equivalent of Ash (Bruce Campbell) from the original. Alvarez has given all the characters different names. This time around, Olivia and company plan to keep Mia isolated in the woods while she endures a cold-turkey withdrawal. No sooner has this been said and done than Olivia’s bespectacled boyfriend, Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci of “Fanboys”), finds the Book of the Dead, made from human flesh, scrawled in blood, and bound by barbed wire. Foolishly, Eric reads aloud from this tome. Meantime, Mia stumbles outside into the woods. Suddenly, vines, branches, and roots trap poor Mia in the underbrush and hold her captive for an evil witch. This lesbian witch spews profanity from her vile, wretched lips, and a licorice like skein of black sludge slithers up into Mia’s mouth. At this point, “Evil Dead” leaves mild behind and turns heavy-duty.
Alvarez wallows his cast in blood, gore, and more. You know when you see a battery powered nail gun that somebody is going to use it on somebody else. Before things get really gory, a poor old pooch is slaughtered, but canine’s death is staged off-screen. Everybody suffers horribly in “Evil Dead,” and nobody truly escapes without either sacrificing a body part or donating enough blood to revive a corpse. The most iconic scene in this savage saga occurs near the end. A one-armed, demon-possessed character gives another demon- possessed character a lobotomy courtesy of a chainsaw through the mouth. Essentially, “Evil Dead” lives up to its title with oodles of evil and death. Further, Alvarez takes his subject matter seriously enough that you could suffer nightmares from his over-the-top depiction of malevolence. Of course, we don’t give a hoot who gets what in the end. The characters qualify as one-dimensional victims. “Evil Dead” spends most of its time trying to gross us out with its graphic detail. If you’re squeamish, you should shun this remake with its bad night in the emergency room blood and gore. As remakes go, “Evil Dead” tops the original in terms of its polished production values, but its authentic looking gore doesn’t surpass its predecessor’s sense of humor. While the characters have more to occupy themselves with in the remake, nobody generates the charisma that Bruce Campbell did the original. Incidentally, if you sit through the end credits, you will see Bruce make a cameo.
