Taglines: The most terrifying film you will ever experience.
Reviews and thoughts by Thepuremassacre (myself), my brother PC74 (that’s his real name, weird huh) and my wife aka The Wife (who I dragged to see the film). Two horror freaks and an innocent woman along for the ride; Evil Dead in their own words. Enjoy!
Evil Dead opens to a frantic scene involving a group of apparent backwoods hillbillies chasing a very distraught young woman. She is mercilessly hit in the face and subdued by the deranged attackers, awaking sometime later tied to a post in a dark and rotting cellar. Urgent dialogue is spoken in a foreign language by a maniacal old crone as her hideously mutated – and obviously inbred – offspring look on with dire trepidation. The old hag mentions an evil book and insists that the young woman must be purified; purified by fire. Her father steps forward, pours gasoline on his daughter and sets her ablaze, awakening an evil inside her that laughs and taunts him, calling her own mother a whore. He aims a shotgun at her and blows his burning daughters head off……. thus begins Evil Dead. Read the rest of this entry »

Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival. Just got back from the theater, wiped the blood from my eyes and the gore from my clothing before finally allowing Evil Dead to “soak” in. A truly visceral blood soaked joy ride! In all honesty I was absolutely stoked for the film; waiting in feverish anticipation for the release of the remake of Raimi’s classic flick. Most of the time (for me anyway) the hype and build up a film destroy’s the actual experience of the film itself; with this in mind I nervously took my seat (at the back of the theater, of course) and began my journey back to that dilapidated cabin the woods. With dilated pupils I surveyed the frantic opening sequences of the film and a tense grin spread across my lips when the necronomicon was opened and the malevolent spirit began wreaking it’s bloody havoc on our unwary cast. As the madness set in, the massacre began. I was not to be disappointed; Evil Dead was arguably the best remake I have ever seen; a bloody re-imagining if you will. Bloody, insane carnage is the focus of the film and boy does it ever work! Gruesome practical effects, buckets of blood and brutally gory mayhem all combine to form one hell of a horror film. As a fan of hardcore horror and the original Evil Dead series I couldn’t be happier! Absolutely fantastic film! I will be expanding this into a review at some point this weekend so stay tuned…..In the mean time, GO SEE THIS FUCKING FILM! Read the rest of this entry »

Roger Joseph Ebert (June 18, 1942 – April 4, 2013) was an American journalist, film critic and screenwriter. The Chicago Sun-Times said he “was without question the nation’s most prominent and influential film critic,” and Forbes described him as “the most powerful pundit in America”. He was the first film critic to win a Pulitzer Prize and to be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. (Wikipedia)
Didn’t always agree with the man but he will be sorely missed. RIP.

Why do we watch horror flicks….for the killing, the blood, the guts, the gore and to a lesser extent the scares. The third segment of Crazy Ass Horror Film Deaths (lol) includes a non horror flick (how dare I) but I think it fits in nicely. Anyway check it out, love it, hate it, whateva. Graphic Clips probably NSFW. Here they are in no particular order. Read the rest of this entry »

They thought they had escaped the terrors of Banoi and survived the apocalypse on a corrupted paradise. Then their fate took a turn for the worse…
The Dead Island heroes escaped in a helicopter to the safety of a military ship, but when a furious storm hits and the virus suddenly spreads throughout the crew, the nightmare starts all over again, leaving hope drowning in the rising tides. Man I am a huge fan of the original Dead Island – what an excellent zombie blood bath! Ultra violent gaming mayhem at it’s finest. I can’t wait to see what the sequel has to offer. Info, Screens and Trailers ahead!

As with all bloggers (I assume), I check my stats fairly frequently; most times to see how a post has performed. I also tend to look at search terms quite often, and some of the results are just downright disturbing. Some make me laugh, others make me scratch my head in confusion and others just make me want to gag. WTF! This is a horror film blog. Not a porn blog, bdsm blog or torture blog (are there such things?) Anyway here is a list of some weird and disturbing search terms that have been used on Thepuremassacre.
