Evil Dead

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!

9/10
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. (more…)

Zombie Lake A.K.A “AquaZombieVampires From Physics Defying Lake/Pool vs. The Strange BuggedEyed Mayor in the Castle Down the Road”

……I cannot believe that I sat through this movie literally glued to the tube??!! But I was; and more so, I had to pee the entire time, and just could get up to head to the bathroom!!!!! The twist; the turns; the boobs, and the 70’s unshaven volleyball/basketball girlies only would sway me to give this flick a 9 outta 10, but it wasn’t that at all! I want to cling a glass with the editing team!! Their lack of compassion, heart, drive, and film education really put the film in a league of it’s own…. I mean lets face it, the cut-away’s, disappearing in an instant zombies in the lake, the pool walls and store bought aquarium plants really added some flare to the lake/pool scenes!! I couldn’t wrap my head around the zombies reaching up from the depths of the lake/pool when the teenieboppers were frolicking knee deep at the shore. I flunked high school physics, but my keen sense of this ain’t fucking rightness kicked into overdrive when the girls were swimming in about 10feet of crystal clear water at the very same time they were knee deep in what seemed to be the most disgusting lake I have every seen!!!
