Evil Dead was by far the best remake I have ever seen. This movie captured me in the first three minutes and didn’t let go until the credits ended. We walked out of the very crowded theater just glowing. The whole crowd was roaring with each and every scene. It was a lively movie. It was down right creepy!
The acting was great. Character development was great. The special effects were great. The storyline was great and the directing was great. I am leading up to something with all of this greatness..be patient.
In several discussions after the movie it was brought to my attention that the original was a cult classic. I had not yet seen it. I am a fan of Bruce Campbell so I decided to go home and watch the original. We got our popcorn ready, turned off the lights and pressed play. I was expecting the be blown away like I was in the theater.
I couldn’t stand it. I hated it like I hate getting sunburns. Not the little glow sunburn, I’m talking about the go to the emergency room so you don’t die, kind of sunburn. Thirty minutes in I turned it off, wondering what was all the fuss is about?
If you hated the original, that’s okay, this one smoked the first one. If you loved the original, that’s cool too, this one is a thousand times better. You will be blown away.
