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.
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard, 1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
