Evil Dead 2013Five 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! (more…)

Evil Dead 2013


Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

With about 2 weeks to go until the international release of Evil Dead 2013 (I can’t sleep much these days), IMDB has already seen it’s share of reviews, ratings and rants concerning the film. I wish I had access to this screener or lived in an area where an advanced marketing screening was in progress, but alas that is not the case. Now I don’t really like ruining a film by reading to many reviews or lengthly synopsis’ by critics before I view a film, I like to be disappointed on my own terms. This is where the haters come in. (If I hate haters then am I a hater?). Bitching and moaning that the film is not exactly the same as the original. Whining about the fact that it’s not the same without Bruce Campbell, or Sam Raimi behind the helm. Comments like, “This film should never have been remade”, “Evil Dead for the Xbox generation”, “why should we consistently be subjected to remakes” and “The story is a vacuous imitation of the Raimi classic”. Get over it! It’s a horror film. It’s a remake, so what! Look at it this way, at least we get another horror flick out of the deal. I am trembling with anticipation for Evil Dead so I am going to focus on the postive’s here, Haters be damned. Oh and watch the insane red band trailer, Now! (more…)

I’am all about the upcoming Evil Dead remake; for me it is probably the most anticipated horror film of 2013.
