evil dead

 

OH WOW. I don’t even know where to start. As a horror fanatic i am ashamed to say i have never seen the 1981 original, so i went into this with no expectations. The bar for this film was still set pretty high, i had read fantastic reviews online and in the papers, so i am glad i wasn’t disappointed. Jane Levy played Mia, and i thought she did a fantastic job as she was believable as both the sweet innocent girl going through a bad time, and the evil tormented victim of this demon. I have a bit of a girl crush on Jane Levy since watching her in Suburgatory, but you really do forget you are watching her. I have said previously i am not a huge fan of blood and guts, but this was done brilliantly with many ‘EW’ moments and hand in front of the eyes viewing.

I would give this 9 out of 10!!

  1. Great review. I got to say, I really enjoyed this movie. I was nervous going in that it wouldn’t honor Sam Raimi’s masterpiece, but thankfully it played plenty of homage to the original. While part of me does miss the humor, I don’t mind that much since I got plenty of action and gore.

    I finally got around to reviewing this movie on my own novice, review-blog. I could always use an experienced critic’s opinion to help me fine-tune my reviews. Check it out if you get the time.
